Snowden left Hong Kong with refugee document from Ecuador—Assange
LONDON — US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden left Hong Kong with a refugee document supplied by Ecuador after the United States revoked his passport, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said on Monday.
“To leave Hong Kong Mr. Snowden was supplied with a refugee document of passage by the Ecuadoran government,” Assange, whose organization is helping Snowden, said in a conference call.
Snowden has also made asylum applications to several countries including Iceland and Ecuador, WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson added.
