Edward Snowden's Father To Visit Him in Russia 'Soon'

NSA whistleblower has been granted a year of asylum in Russia


Lon Snowden, father of US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, has a Russian visa and will visit his son "very soon", his lawyer says.

Mr Snowden told the US ABC network he wanted his son to return home provided the justice system is applied "correctly" in his case.

He added that his son had "spoken the truth" and made great sacrifices.

Edward Snowden has been granted asylum by Russia despite requests from the US that he be returned.
