His Wikileaks founder and sex crime suspect Julian Assange will fight extradition from the UK.
Legal adviser Baltasar Garzon said outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London said: “I have spoken to Julian Assange and I can tell you he is in fighting spirits and he is thankful to the people of Ecuador and especially to the president for granting asylum.
“Julian Assange has always fought for truth and justice and has defended human rights and continues to do so.
“He demands that WikiLeaks and his own rights be respected.
Mr Garzon said there are no current talks over the issue of possible extradition to the USA.
“There are no negotiations as far as I am aware,” he said.
“It is not within our area of competence to know whether there are negotiations.”
