Wikileaks denies it is closing

Written by Nick Farell


There is life in the thing yet
Despite rumours of its impending death, the Wikileaks whistleblowing site is not closing, according to its spokesman Julian Assange. Pressure is mounting after the US government got spooked when a video of a deadly shootout in Iraq that killed a Reuters photographer was shown on the site. Apparently it is trying to speak to Assange about how the footage ended up in his paws.

According to PC Pro while the site was up and running this morning, its submission form isn't currently working. A post on the Cryptome site claims Assange will commit "no more time and effort into restoring the website". With the document submission function down for weeks, there is now way for whistleblowers to upload documents to the site, meaning that it will dry up.

There are rumours that Assange was expected to relaunch a new leak site hosted in Iceland soon. However, Wikileaks denied the claim via its Twitter account: "WikiLeaks will NOT be abandoned. Don't listen to disinfo being spread! We'll issue clarifications soon. Should've done earlier." In a comment to TheNextWeb, Wikileaks said that there is no substance to the rumours and it will be issuing a press release soon ”in order to address this bull**** campaign once and for all."

Earlier this year, Wikileaks was suspended after it ran low on funds, but quickly gained enough donations.
