Baltasar Garzon, a former Spanish judge and WikiLeaks legal director, said:
The WikiLeaks legal team and I are interested in preserving Mr Snowden’s rights and protecting him as a person.
What is being done to Mr Snowden and to Mr Julian Assange - for making or facilitating disclosures in the public interest - is an assault against the people.
