In this interesting interview, Hrafnsson, an investigative journalist in Iceland, explains why he joined WikiLeaks as a press spokesman, after the exposure of the banking corruption in Iceland.
He says in the interview, "Julian Assange was working in Iceland the winter 2009-2010. After that Wikileaks actually produced a tremendously important leak which exposed corruption within Iceland. It shed light onto why the entire banking system of Iceland collapsed in 2008. I met him in that period when he was in Iceland working on other things."
He states that the global crackdown on whistleblowers, and particularly the present situation with Julian Assange
, will not prevent WikiLeaks from continuing to expose illegalities and corruption worldwide.
The WikiLeaks project
will be opening an anonymous electronic "drop-box" and is calling for more evidence to be submitted and then exposed by WikiLeaks.
