US Attorney General Eric Holder has written a
letter to his Russian counterpart saying the United States would not
pursue the death penalty if Edward Snowden is returned to the United
States to face trial, a news report said Friday.
The letter, which the Wall Street Journal said is dated Tuesday, also promises he wouldn't be tortured.
"The United States would not seek the death penalty even if Mr Snowden were charged with additional, death penalty-eligible crimes," Holder wrote.
The letter, which aims to persuade Russia not to grant Snowden refugee status, also argues that his grounds for seeking asylum in Russia "are entirely without merit."
