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.
