Index on Censorship calls on the EU to protect whistleblowers’ right to freedom of expression

By Index on Censorship / 3 July, 2013

Following reports that some European countries have prevented a plane carrying the Bolivian President Evo Morales into their airspace, Index on Censorship calls on EU members to honour their commitments to freedom of expression.

Index CEO Kirsty Hughes said:

“Members of the EU have a duty to protect freedom of expression and should not interfere in an individual’s rights to seek asylum.  Edward Snowden is a whistleblower whose free speech rights should be protected not criminalised.”
