Snowdeen

Two Norwegian politicians say they have jointly nominated former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden for the 2014 Nobel peace prize.

Socialist politicians Baard Vegar Solhjell, a former environment minister, and Snorre Valen said the public debate and policy changes “in the wake of Snowden’s whistleblowing has contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order”.
