Court dis­misses Snow­den law­suit

China Daily (USA) - - WORLD -

A Nor­we­gian court has dis­missed a law­suit seek­ing a le­gal guar­an­tee to al­low Ed­ward Snow­den to travel to Nor­way with­out risk of be­ing ex­tra­dited to the United States. The court up­held on Wednes­day a rul­ing by a lower court say­ing it can­not is­sue such a guar­an­tee for some­one who isn’t present in Nor­way. An Oslo law­firm filed the law­suit in April on be­half of the for­mer Na­tional Se­cu­rity Agency con­trac­tor and the Nor­we­gian chap­ter of PEN that had in­vited Snow­den to re­ceive its Ossi­et­zky Prize in Novem­ber.
