Wikileaks security under threat

By Index on Censorship / 9 August, 2010

A Swedish newspaper has claimed that Wikileaks is not fully protected by Swedish law and so could be vulnerable to demands to reveal its sources.  Håkan Rustand, deputy to the acting Chancellor of Justice, claims that simply placing Wikileaks’ server in Sweden does not mean that it is automatically protected by Swedish law. The article in the Sydsvenskam newspaper claims that Wikileaks does not have the necessary licence to publish material in Sweden, thus leaving it only partially protected by law.
