MOSCOW, June 26 (Itar-Tass) - Amnesty International has voiced objections to a possibility of an extradition of the former CIA analyst Edward Snowden to the U.S.
There is no accusing anyone under any kind of law for releasing information on violations of human rights by the U.S., as the publication of these data is protected by the right for a free exchange of information and a free expression of opinions, Amnesty’s Senior Director for International Law and Relations, Widney Brown, said in a statement.
Wherever Snowden is found eventually, he has the right to seek asylum and for his petition to get a positive reply, he must prove convincingly that he is being subjected to persecution, the statement says.
Widney Brown writes that if Snowden’s petition is turned down, not a single country has the right to extradite him to any other country where he runs a tangible risk of cruel treatment.
Amnesty International is confident that Snowden may face harsh treatment should he be extradited to the U.S., the statement says.
