So the US Government didn’t fill out the papers correctly? Snowden slipped away…

 

“…On Sunday, Hong Kong’s government additionally said that documents accompanying the U.S. government’s request that Mr. Snowden be detained under a provisional warrant of arrest “did not fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law.”

Accordingly, as the city hadn’t received sufficient information to process a provisional warrant of arrest, it had no legal basis on which to stop Mr. Snowden from leaving Hong Kong, the government said. The government added that Mr. Snowden had left the city “through a lawful and normal channel,” and that it had already notified U.S. authorities of his departure…” Wall Street Journal
