The U.S. court requires Snowden to give up his book proceeds. The former agent received $4.2 million from the sale of memoirs “Permanent Record”. The authorities want to receive the amount of fees for Snowden’s performances – $1.03 million.
The American Ministry of Justice said that the money should be transferred by the former secret service agent to the government. The earned money was declared illegal. The court ruled that Snowden had violated the obligations towards the USA. He did not receive permission from the authorities to disclose classified data.
