Court rejects attempt to allow Edward Snowden into Germany | US news | The Guardian

The Green and Left parties wanted the whistleblower to give evidence in person to a parliamentary committee investigating espionage by the US agency, but Germany's constitutional court ruled against them on Friday.

The government has argued that Snowden's presence in Germany could impair relations with the US and put it under pressure to extradite him.

It has suggested sending the committee - which consists of eight MPs - to interview him in Moscow, where Snowden is living in exile. Snowden has said through a lawyer that he is prepared to speak to the panel only if permitted to do so in Germany.
