German spying investigators to call on Snowden

Snowden to be called by GermanyEdward Snowden will be called to testify as a witness, the German parliamentary committee investigating the U.S. National Security Agency's activities said Thursday.

Testimony from the American whistleblower and former NSA contractor was agreed to by all political parties in the investigative committee, said Martina Renner of the socialist Die Linke party. Since the German government will likely prevent Snowden from attending a hearing, he is expected to be questioned by either a video link, or a visit from a parliamentary delegation to Moscow, his current home.

Snowden could be extradited to the United States if he leaves Russia for Germany. His questioning could begin by early July.

The committee intends to question German Chancellor Angela Merkel, current and former cabinet ministers and the heads of German intelligence agencies.
