Wikileaks sets up shop in Iceland

Written by Nick Farell


It might be cold but it is freer
Online whistleblowing site Wikileaks has set up a new business in Iceland.

The new business is registered to a block of flats in the Mosfellsbaer municipality near Reykjavik. A Wikileaks spokesperson says that the company, called Sunshine Press Production, is not involved in any activity and has no turnover. The chairman of the company is Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and he shares the board of directors with filmmaker Ingi Ragnar Ingason and journalist Kristinn Hrafnsson. The deputy board member is Gavin MacFadyen, a professor of journalism in London. The company is registered at the home address of one of the board members at Klapparhlid in Mosfellsbaer.

In the description of the business held by the national register of companies, Sunshine Press will work, among other things, in the production and distribution of multimedia material, pictures, printed and press material. Quite what Wikileaks is up to is anyone's guess. There was some talk about the outfit moving to Iceland because it was less likely to get hassled. However Wikileaks is voluntary and this appears to be a commercial spin off.
