MOSCOW, September 16 (RIA Novosti) – Fugitive US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, who received political asylum in Russia, travels around the country but has so far not been recognized, his lawyer said.

“He takes walks, he can travel. He travels,” Anatoly Kucherena said in an interview with Russia Today. “No one has recognized him so far.”

He said that Snowden’s parents are to visit him in Russia soon, and his grandparents might also come.

When asked whether the whistleblower had more information that had not yet been revealed, Kucherena said that “certainly” he does.

“Yes, certainly. One should understand that Edward had worked in the CIA for quite a few years. He is a good specialist, a professional,” the lawyer said.

Snowden, a computer specialist and former employee of the US National Security Agency (NSA), was the focus of international attention over the summer after he leaked classified evidence of US government surveillance programs to the media.

He fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, where he was granted temporary asylum in Russia in late July despite repeated extradition demands from Washington.
