OSLO, August 28. /TASS/. Former US National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden may receive the Bjornstjerne Bjornson prize at the Russian-Norwegian border, the head of Norway’s Academy of Literature and Freedom of Expression said on Friday.
"As far as I know, personal contacts across the border are forbidden, but we can leave the prize at the border line for Edward Snowden to take it from the Russian side," Hege Nouri said.
The Norwegian Justice and Public Security Ministry earlier refused to give Snowden guarantees that he would not be extradited to the United States if he arrived in Norway to get the award.
The US whistleblower was announced winner of the prestigious $12,000 Bjornson Prize in June.
He is wanted in the US for leaking information on the NSA worldwide secret surveillance programs to media.
