US WHISTLEBLOWER Edward Snowden is set to address a conference in Israel via videolink, during which he is likely to discuss details of Washington spooks spying on Israeli officials.
Also taking part will be an ex-Mossad agent, who will respond to the points made by the former National Security Agency (NSA) analyst.
The November 6 event, organised by a local media consultancy, will discuss issues “relating specifically to Israel” and has been approved by Israeli officials.
Mr Snowden, who worked for the NSA as a private contractor, exposed documents in 2013 revealing the extent of US spying on foreign countries, including Israel.
Washington declared him a traitor and revoked his passport. He has since been granted residency in Russia.
Organisers OH! Orenstein and Hoshen, an Israeli PR firm, said in a statement: “Snowden is a fascinating figure because his actions are so controversial. We have no intention of expressing support or an opinion on what he did.
“The audience will hear what he has to say, can ask tough questions and people can work out their own opinions on the matter.”
