World Service Authority issues World Passport to Edward Snowden

WSA issues passport to NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden

| Current Affairs News | Posted: Jul 11, 2013 6:28 pm

This morning, the World Service Authority issued NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden a world passport based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This World Passport grants Snowden the right to travel throughout the world without limitations. It does not stop him from being extradited back to the US if he lands in a country that has extradition treaties with the US.

Currently Snowden is immobilized in a Moscow airport transit lounge with no outgoing ticket to any nation. The WSO says that this is a flagrant violation of article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states that everyone has the right to leave any country including his own and be returned to his own country.
