NEW YORK — A Russian secret agent sent home in a highly publicized spy swap wants to leave the country and return with his wife to her native Peru, while continuing to live under the false name he used for 34 years, the man's attorney said.

An American lawyer for the man formerly known as Juan Lazaro told the Wall Street Journal in Saturday's editions that her client "wants to be where his wife is going."

His wife, Vicky Pelaez, is a Peruvian-born former columnist for the Spanish-language New York City newspaper El Diario/La Prensa.
