Wife Denied 2nd Visit With Alleged U.S. Spy

October 28, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

Russian officials turned down a request by the wife of an American accused of spying in Russia to visit her husband for the second time in a week, and an appeal to meet with President Vladimir V. Putin went unanswered, a U.S. official said. "This case is disappointment after disappointment," said Rep. John E. Peterson (R-Pa.), the congressman of accused spy Edmond D. Pope. Pope, 54, a retired U.S. Navy officer, was arrested April 3 in Moscow on charges of trying to buy classified plans for a high-speed torpedo.
