Lon Snowden, the father of fugitive US intelligence expert Edward Snowden, has been granted a visa by Russian authorities and will travel to Russia to meet his son within weeks, according to reports.
“We have visas, we have a date,” Lon Snowden’s attorney Bruce Fein said during an interview on ABC News, according to a transcript posted online.
The meeting will take place in the "next week," he added, according to RIA Novosti.
Fein told RIA Novosti last week that Lon Snowden had arranged to make his visit to Russia by August 17.
Snowden was granted asylum by Russia on August 1 after reportedly spending more than a month living inside the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport.
