Self-exiled whistleblower, Edward Snowden, has made his case for a presidential pardon, at a public campaign launch today. It's been three years since the former National Security Agency contractor released details of mass phone and internet surveillance by his employer.
And now three of the most prominent human rights organisations in the United States have launched a campaign calling on President Barack Obama for an official pardon.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are behind the 'Pardon Snowden' campaign. Noa Yachot is the campaign director.
