By: Peter Griffiths | Reuters

(Reuters) – WikiLeaks’ decision to help U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden escape Washington’s extradition attempts in Hong Kong has cemented the anti-secrecy group’s reputation as a thorn in the side of the American and British governments.

In comments likely to infuriate Washington, WikiLeaks said it was escorting Snowden to Ecuador and had offered the support of its legal director Baltasar Garzon, a former Spanish judge known around the world for ordering the arrest of former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet.
