Lawyer: Snowden still expects visit from father

MOSCOW (AP) — The Russian lawyer for Edward Snowden is reported as saying that the fugitive National Security Agency leaker is still awaiting a visit from his father and other relatives.

The state-owned television channel RT released a transcript of its interview with Snowden’s lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, dated Monday, but said it had not yet aired.

Kucherena is quoted saying that he talks to Snowden’s father almost every day and the elder Snowden is still planning to come to Russia soon. The lawyer refused to give a date for the visit but said Snowden’s mother and grandparents may come, too.

Snowden, who received asylum in Russia on Aug. 1, has not spoken publicly and his whereabouts remain secret. Kucherena said Snowden has guards but is able to go outside and travel around.
