GENEVA The Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy, Joe Cannataci, plans to meet Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on 25 April after receiving assurances from the Government of Ecuador that it will facilitate his visit to the country's embassy in London.

The UN expert said the meeting would help determine if there exists a prima facie case of violation of privacy that warrants further investigation.

Cannataci also confirmed that he is requesting further information from the Government on a complaint lodged by the President of Ecuador that his privacy had been violated by publication of personal data illegally obtained by a website involved in the so-called INA Papers scandal.
