Wikileak’s legal advisor Sarah Harrison has submitted number of requests by hand for asylum and assisting in asylum process on behalf of NSA whistleblower Edward J. Snowden.

The requests were submitted by Sarah Harrison to the Russian consulate at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport.

The requests include a list of 19 countries where Snowdon is planning and applying for asylum, remember that this new list is an addition to outstanding requests in Ecuador and Iceland.
