STRASBOURG, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. No decision has been made regarding Edward Snowden’s addresses at the session of the European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs. Press service of a European Parliament’s deputy Jan Philipp Albrecht, who is a member of this Committee, said potential address of the NSA leaker will be discussed Thursday. The spokesperson added that the session will be held in any case in Brussels, December 16 to 18.
Previously Russian and western media outlets reported that Snowden could record a video address for the European Parliament, in which he would provide answers to their questions. The Parliament’s spokesperson explained that the list of questions has not been finalized yet. She further elaborated, saying that there will be no live video feed. “He will prepare answers to our questions, voice them in front of a camera and sent it to us. If no technical or other difficulties surface, then most likely the video will be shown to Committee members December 18,” she said.
This summer the EU has passed a resolution, in which it called upon Washington to immediately clarify the situation regarding surveillance conducted by American intelligence services. European deputies emphasized that if this information was proven to be true, it could affect transatlantic relations. In this regard, the Justice Committee was entrusted with conducting an in-depth investigation by the end of the year.
