Snowden again fails to win no-extradition pledge from Norway

Edward Snowden, seen via live video link from Russia in 2015, faces US charges of espionage and theft of state secrets that could land him up to 30 years in jailA Norwegian court on Wednesday dismissed a fresh bid by fugitive whistleblower Edward Snowden to win assurances he would not be extradited to the US should he come to Norway to collect an award. The Oslo appeals court said it was not competent to offer such a pre-emptive guarantee since Snowden had not set foot in Norway and Washington had not submitted a formal request for his extradition. The appeals court upheld the June ruling of a lower court to which Snowden had taken his challenge against the Norwegian justice ministry’s position that no guarantees on extradition could be given before a request had been formally received.
