巴西否认收到斯诺登正式避难申请

Brazil denies receiving Edward Snowden's request for asylum

The Brazilian Foreign Ministry denied Monday that U.S. intelligence contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden has formally requested Brazil for asylum.

In an interview aired by local TV station Globo on Sunday evening, Snowden, who's temporary asylum in Russia expires in August, said that he had requested asylum from Brazilian government, and he would be happy to live in Brazil if the government approves his request.

Brazilian Foreign Minister Luiz Alberto Figueiredo said Monday that officials have not received his petition.

"If the request arrives, it will be analyzed, but it has not arrived,"the minister said.

Snowden worked for the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) until he decided to blow the whistle on the agency's covert global surveillance programs, which appeared to also target Brazil.

His revelations showed the United States monitored the e-mails and phone calls of millions of ordinary Brazilians, as well as the country's president Dilma Rousseff, her top aides and the state oil and gas giant Petrobras.

The U.S. government has justified its global spying network, citing security threats, but has also indicated it may scale back the dimensions of its monitoring.

相关新闻:巴西政府2日否认美国“棱镜”项目曝光者斯诺登向巴西提出正式避难申请。

巴西外长菲格雷多当天在回答媒体记者相关提问时说:“如果(斯诺登)递交了申请,那么将会接受评估。问题是(巴西)根本没有收到申请。”

斯诺登1日在巴西环球电视台播出的专访节目中说,他希望选择巴西作为居住地。他滞留在俄罗斯机场的时候,就已经向巴西驻俄罗斯大使馆递交了正式申请。

2013年6月至8月,斯诺登滞留在俄罗斯谢列梅捷沃机场中转区期间,曾向多国提出政治避难申请,其中包括巴西。巴西外交部随后表示,这仅是一种“试探”,不会予以回应。同年12月,斯诺登再次通过《致巴西人民的公开信》,婉转表示希望巴西为其提供政治避难。巴西外交部就此发表声明,称斯诺登的避难请求“不正式”且“不严肃”。(新华网)
