Chief executive Leung says Snowdon departure shows Hong Kong's respect for rule of law


On Sunday, Snowden left the city and fled to Moscow, despite Washington having requested his arrest and extradition. The Hong Kong government said the documentation supporting his extradition was incomplete.

Leung said on Monday afternoon said that there had been expressions of displeasure from some quarters in the United States over Snowden’s departure from Hong Kong. He said that his government had found no legal grounds to prevent him from leaving the city.
“Mr Edward Snowden left Hong Kong as a normal passenger using our usual and lawful channels yesterday while the Hong Kong government was processing the request of the United States government to issue a provisional warrant of arrest on Mr Snowden,” he said.
