Former US intelligence officer Edward Snowden, commenting on the death of the founder of the McAfee Company John McAfee on his Twitter page, said that the founder of the WikiLeaks disclosure site, Julian Assange, could be the next.
Earlier, the País newspaper reported, citing police sources, that the founder of the McAfee Company, John McAfee, whose extradition to the United States was approved by the Spanish National Court, committed suicide in prison in Spain.
“Europe should not extradite those accused of nonviolent crimes to a judicial system that is so unfair, and a prison system that is so cruel that native-born defendants would rather die than be subjected to it. Julian Assange could be next. Until the system is reformed, the moratorium should remain,” Snowden said on Twitter.
In subsequent posts, Snowden first apologized that he was mistaken about the origin of McAfee, and wrote that he was an American, but was born British. However, then he corrected himself again, adding that McAfee was stillborn an American, just outside the United States.
