Wikileaks takes a leakPosted by Swapnil Tamse
WikiLeaks said that it was temporarily suspending publication due to lack of funding.
In a statement posted on Wikileaks.org, WikiLeaks appealed to its supporters to immediately donate money to keep the site running.
It said that an “unlawful financial blockade” by several of the world’s largest transaction-processing companies had “destroyed” 95% of its revenue.
The website has reportedly been in financial mess as U.S. financial firms Bank of America, Visa, MasterCard, PayPal said they would no longer process WikiLeaks’ transactions out of protest to the site’s controversial work.
According to its website, Wikileaks faces about $1.2 million in legal fees in addition to its operating costs.
