Snowden's Icelandic citizenship request stuck until September

Lucian Constantin | July 8, 2013
A bill to grant the NSA leaker Icelandic citizenship was not discussed in the Icelandic Parliament before summer recess.

The bill's status is still pending, but the parliament will be in recess until the beginning of September so there will be no discussion until then, a spokeswoman for the Icelandic Parliament said.

It's still possible for the bill to be discussed and voted on by the parliament in September, but it's not clear if other options will be explored until then. The Pirate Party MPs have not had a chance to discuss what to do in the meantime, Ámundadóttir said.

"I can assure you this is not the end of this case," said via email Páll Valur Björnsson, an Icelandic MP for the Bright Future party who also sponsored the bill.
