US charges seven Russian intelligence officers linked to global cyber hack of doping agencies and other organisations

US charges seven Russian intelligence officers linked to global cyber hack of doping agencies and other organisationsThe US Department of Justice has charged seven Russian military intelligence officers with hacking anti-doping agencies and other organisations. An indictment announced in Washington on Thursday said Russia’s military intelligence agency, known as the GRU, targeted the hacking victims because they had publicly supported a ban on Russian athletes in international sports competitions and because they had condemned Russia’s state-sponsored athlete doping program. Prosecutors said the Russians also targeted a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company and an international organisation that was investigating chemical weapons in Syria and the poisoning of a former GRU officer.

Judge gives U.S. more time to decide on retrying Manafort on deadlocked charges

Judge gives U.S. more time to decide on retrying Manafort on deadlocked chargesU.S. prosecutors have more time to decide whether to retry former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on 10 criminal charges that a jury deadlocked on last week, a judge ordered on Thursday. U.S. District Judge T. S. Ellis delayed the deadline for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to make the decision until one week after Ellis rules on any post-trial motions that Manafort may submit. The original deadline had been Wednesday, which prosecutors said would be difficult to meet because Manafort’s lawyers had requested a 30-day extension to file their post-trial motions.
