Euro MPs nominate Snowden for rights prize


The US whistleblower Edward Snowden has made the shortlist for a European human rights award after being nominated by a bloc of European Union politicians.

The former CIA employee was nominated on Monday for the Sakharov Prize by the Green group in the European Parliament for leaking details of secret US surveillance programmes.

His nomination was in recognition of his “enormous service” to human rights and to the European citizens, the Green group said.
