The US Ministry of Justice has sued a private company that provides background checks of the staff being recruited by the US state agencies.
The US Investigations Services, accused of unqualified applicant selection, will have to pay 30 million dollars to the American authorities.
The claims are related to the former secret-service agent Edward Snowden, who revealed top secret details of the US special agencies and had to flee from the country.
Pravda.Ru reported that the American authorities are still utterly opposed to pardon Snowden and let him come back.
Even the US presidential nominee Jeb Bush claimed that no leniency can be shown towards him.
