Snowden article in major Asian newspaper

There are more revelations from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden appearing in a major Asian newspaper.

In the article Snowden is reported to be safe in a secret location and not under any kind of police protection in Hong Kong.

Snowden also makes new claims that the US hacked Chinese telecom companies and a major university.

The three charges he is facing in the US carry a maximum sentence of ten years each behind bars.

He can still seek asylum and the appeals process could lead all the way to the high court in Hong Kong  that could take years.

The white house expects Hong Kong to abide by extradition treaty law.

For now the world is waiting to see how long Snowden can keep US justice at bay.
