BERLIN, October 28 (Itar-Tass) - German investigators might try to put questions to former CIA employee Edward Snowden as a witness in the German Chancellor Angela Merkel phone tapping row, Interior Minister Peter Friedrich told the TV channel N24 on Monday.
“In the course of the investigation the prosecutor's office may question Snowden through the Russian consulate,” he said.
The possibility of questioning Snowden as a witness was mentioned earlier, on Sunday, by German Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger. She said the German Federal Prosecutor’s Office would have to consider the issue, if the spying allegations proved correct and a case was opened. There would be “no major obstacles”, she said.
