CARACAS, July 6 (Itar-Tass) - Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro is prepared to grant “humanitarian asylum” to US secret service employee Edward Snowden “to protect him from persecution by one of the most powerful governments in the world.”
The Venezuelan leader was speaking in front of participants in a military march-past timed for the 202nd anniversary of national independence.
“As the head of Venezuela’s state and government I have made a decision to grant humanitarian asylum to young American Edward Snowden, to let him arrive in the country of Bolivar and Chavez to escape persecution by the United States,” Maduro said.
In his opinion, Snowden has done nothing wrong.
He just told the truth, for which he began to be persecuted by “the world’s most powerful empire.”
