Snowden 'repeatedly urged to leave HK'
(06-24 12:27)

The lawyer who represented Edward Snowden during talks with Hong Kong officials over extradition issues, says the US whistleblower was repeatedly urged over the past week to leave the city. Democratic Party lawmaker, Albert Ho Chun-yan, said the calls were transmitted to Snowden via a third person, RTHK reports.
It's not clear who that person represented, but Ho said he believed the messages originated in Beijing.
Snowden left Hong Kong yesterday and is now in Moscow. He has applied for asylum in Ecuador.
