Iceland has been informally contacted by an intermediary who stated that NSA leaker, former CIA contractor Edward Snowden, wants asylum in the Nordic island-state, Reuters reports. The difficulty though is that he is not in the country.
WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson wrote in Icelandic daily Frettabladid that a middleman had approached him on behalf of Snowden.
“On 12 June, I received a message from Edward Snowden where he asked me to notify the Icelandic government that he wanted to seek asylum in Iceland,” Hrafnsson, who is also an investigative journalist in Iceland, told Reuters.
