On March 27, three Swedish parliamentarians visited 2014 Laureate Edward Snowden in Moscow. This is the first time ever that Snowden has received a parliamentarian delegation. Ms. Cecilia Magnusson (Moderate Party), Mr. Mathias Sundin (Liberal Party) and Mr. Jakop Dalunde (Green Party), participated in the meeting.
The meeting was organized by the Right Livelihood Award Foundation, whose ambition is that Snowden should be able to come to Sweden to receive his prize in the near future.
“Our hope is that today’s meeting will increase the likelihood of Edward Snowden being able to receive his award in Stockholm. If Sweden welcomes Snowden, hopefully other countries will follow, which will give him a certain freedom of travel”, said Ole von Uexkull, RLA Executive Director.
