Germany "Merkel" blocks Edward Snowden from testifying in person in NSA inquiry. Opposition call it cowardice...
Officials say a personal invitation for US whistleblower to attend hearing would put 'grave strain' on US-German relations.

Opposition politicians said they would seek ways to challenge the government's veto. The Green party leader, Simone Peter, accused the chancellor of cowardice.

"Merkel is displaying cowardice towards our ally America," she said. "We owe the Americans nothing in this respect. The government must at least make a serious effort to safely bring Snowden to Germany and let him give evidence here. But Merkel doesn't want that."

The opposition are trying to take the matter to the supreme court to let him testify.
