Snowden to provide pre-recorded video testimony to the European parliament

NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden will give evidence to the EU parliament this month on the heavily criticised and condemned surveillance practices of the US and UK intelligence agencies. The European parliament has announced its resolve to consider Snowden's evidence by video despite protests raised by the UK.

The parliament has required Snowden to appear before the assembly's committee on civil liberties, justice and home affairs (LIBE). The EU sources believe that evidence provided by Snowden will be vital to guide the investigation on the controversial mass surveillance programs of the UK and the US.

The LIBE will attempt to understand the role European intelligence agencies played in the issue and to what extent and how the EU citizens were monitored. Snowden expressed his willingness to provide evidence to the parliament in October.

The EU put down its feet demanding explanation from the US and UK after it was revealed that many global leaders including German chancellor Angela Merkel where on the surveillance list of both intelligence agencies. Snowden's video testimony will be collected by sending questions to him in advance to keep his geographical location under wraps.
