E-mail Print PDF

Julian AssangeWikiLeaks is helping Edward Snowden, the self-declared U.S. spy-program leaks source, broker asylum in Iceland, anti-secrecy group founder Julian Assange said.

"I feel a great deal of personal sympathy with Mr. Snowden," Assange told reporters in a conference call from Ecuador's embassy in London on the first anniversary of being holed up in the compound to avoid being sent to Sweden to face questioning in a sexual-offense investigation.

"We are in touch with Mr. Snowden's legal team and are involved in the process of brokering his asylum in Iceland," Assange said, adding WikiLeaks and Snowden's team were reviewing both the legal and practical obstacles of such asylum.

The Icelandic Embassy in Washington said Reykjavik was approached by Snowden advocates but would comment no further.
