U.S. wants to seize all money Edward Snowden makes from new book

美国想要没收爱德华·斯诺登卖新书所赚到的钱



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked secret documents about U.S. telephone and internet surveillance in 2013, saying his new book violates non-disclosure agreements.

华盛顿(路透社)- 美国周二对爱德华·斯诺登提起诉讼,称他的新书违反了保密协议。爱德华·斯诺登是美国国家安全局的前承包商雇员,曾于2013年泄露美国电话和互联网监控的秘密文件。



Representatives for the book's publisher, Macmillan Publishers, and its unit Henry Holt & Co, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

该书出版商麦克米伦出版社及其子公司亨利·霍尔特公司的代表,对外界的评论请求并未予以立即回应。

Snowden has lived in Russia since he revealed details of U.S. intelligence agencies' secret surveillance programs.

自从披露了美国情报机构秘密监视项目的细节后,斯诺登就一直住在俄罗斯。

Though he is viewed by some as a hero, U.S. authorities want him to stand in a criminal trial over his disclosures of classified information.

尽管他被一些人视为英雄,但美国当局期望他能受到刑事审判,审判其泄露机密信息的行为。

Speaking by video lix at an event in Berlin to promote the book, Snowden said that while he had signed a non-disclosure agreement to maintain secrecy, he had also sworn an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution.

斯诺登在柏林通过视频链接,进行了宣传该书的活动,他表示,虽然他签署了保密协议,但他也宣誓要维护美国宪法。

"You've told the government you're not going to talk to journalists. You've told them you're not going to write a book," Snowden said. "At the same time you have an oath to defend the Constitution. And the secret that you are asked to protect is that the government is violating that Constitution and the rights of people around the world."

斯诺登说:“你已经跟政府说了你不会告诉记者。你已经跟他们说了你不会去写书。同时你也宣誓要捍卫宪法。而这些你被要求去保护的秘密,却是政府违反了宪法(的行为),是政府侵犯了全世界人民权利(的行为)。”
