WikiLeaks is an international non-profit organization that publishes submissions of private, secret, and classified media from anonymous news sources and news leaks. Its website, launched in 2006 under The Sunshine Press organization,claimed a database of more than 1.2 million documents within a year of its launch.
The time for a big disclosure from Wikileaks is back! A former Swiss banker has passed on data containing account details of 2,000 prominent people to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.The data – which is not yet available on the Wikileaks website – was held on two discs handed over by Rudolf Elmer at a press conference in London.Mr Assange promised full disclosure once the information had been vetted.Mr Elmer is scheduled to go on trial in Switzerland on Wednesday for breaking bank secrecy laws.The banker, who has given data to Wikileaks before, was fired from Swiss bank Julius Baer in 2002.
“Evidently disgruntled and frustrated about unfulfilled career aspirations, Mr. Elmer exhibited behaviour that was detrimental and unacceptable for the Bank, which led to termination of the employment relationship,” the bank said in a statement sent to the media. Wikileaks have been disclosing unethical behavior in governments and corporations and has been facing world-wide aggression from governments of various nations , mainly the US. Now with the Swiss bank accounts data in their hands, lets wait and watch what happens!
