Beijing told confessed National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden that he should leave Hong Kong and that authorities would not stop him if he did, his attorney told reporters Monday.
Hong Kong's elite chose a former Cabinet chief as the southern Chinese financial hub's next leader on Sunday, heeding Beijing's wishes and public opinion following a tumultuous, bitter race that highlighted public discontent.
Its role was to receive instructions to not stop him at the airport," Mr. Ho told Reuters.
Lawyer Albert Ho said Mr. Snowden was approached last week by someone claiming to represent the government of Hong Kong, who told him he should leave and that the island’s authorities would not stop him if he did, despite the revocation of his passport and a pending extradition request by U.S. authorities.
