Edward Snowden

Seeks asylum in Brazil

2 Jun, 2014

Snowden seeks asylum in several countries, including Brazil. In December 2013 in an open letter he had praised the government in Brazil for its stance against spying practices. If granted asylum, he had also offered to assist the government in its investigation of NSA spying tactics.

If Brazil offers me asylum, then I’ll gladly accept it. I would like to live in Brazil.

Snowden’s asylum in Russia ends in August this year. The Brazilian authorities say that have not received an asylum request.
