Spain Judge Baltasar Garzon vows to fight conviction


Spanish Judge Baltasar Garzon has vowed to fight his conviction for authorising illegal phonetapping despite the court barring him from appealing.

In a statement, he said his rights had been "systematically violated" with the ruling, which saw him suspended from the judiciary for 11 years.

Hundreds of people protested in Madrid in support of the campaigning judge.
