ATHENS, Greece – National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden says he intends to vote in the U.S. presidential election, but did not say which candidate he favours.
“I will be voting,” Snowden said Friday, speaking at a conference in Athens by video link from Moscow, where he has been in exile for the past three years.
The 33-year-old spoke ahead of the opening of the movie “Snowden” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
He also thanked human rights groups for their campaign to seek a pardon for him from President Barack Obama.
Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, was on the panel of the Athens conference.
