TALLINN -- The Estonian Security Police have launched an investigation into Justice Minister Rein Lang over his allegedly leaking classified information.

The Justice Minister allegedly leaked the information to a journalist.

Though it would be considered a misdemeanor, Lang could face a fine of as much as 500,000 krooni (€32,100) and possibly a prison sentence. On the other end of the spectrum, he may face only a fine.
