Snowden Talks Surveillance, Privacy with Swedish Lawyers in Moscow

Edward Snowden has met with three Swedish lawyers at a secret location in Moscow to discuss matters of surveillance and privacy, adding he hopes “to see them soon in Sweden.”

The meeting was organized by the Stockholm-based Right Livelihood Award Foundation, which awarded Snowden its human rights prize in 2014.

Snowden said in the statement released by the organization that they discussed mass surveillance, privacy and transparency, and added that he “hopes to see them soon again in Sweden.”

The lawyers are from the Swedish Green Party, the junior member of the country’s coalition government, and also from the Moderate and Liberal parties, AP reported.

“We discussed his journey and he gave us a nuanced account of how mass surveillance works and what doesn’t work,” MP Jakop Dalunde from the Green Party told SVT broadcaster.
