Submission + - EU Parliament Rejects Asylum For Snowden. ->

cold fjord writes: Euronews reports, "MEPs have rejected a demand from the European Green Party that urged EU governments to grant asylum to whistleblower Edward Snowden. The move came during the adoption of a European Parliament committee inquiry into the NSA spying scandal. As Claude Moraes, a centre-left British parliamentarian, explains, member states have the final say over who they allow to remain inside their borders. “The European Union does not have the power to grant asylum as the European Union, so this is something for individual member states,” he told euronews. “And the issue of asylum within this report therefore does not become a relevant issue for the European Union.”"
