Former Wikileaks employees launch new secret document site, Openleaks

BERLIN .- Several former members of the Wikileaks site, whose leaks fill the pages of newspapers this last week days, launched a new online platform called Openleaks.

Unlike the site responsible for the leak of secret files of the U.S. government, Openleaks receive confidential documents but will not publish them online, but will offer them to the media and other organizations, as stated today on the German newspaper “Sddeutsche Zeitung” by Openleaks spokesman, Herberg Snorrason.

Snorrason said the new site could cooperate with human rights organizations, unions and even governments.

The idea is that they will pay between 200 and 500 euros, depending on the size of the organization and their financial system. It also hopes to receive donations. The spokesman estimated that the new portal will need “more than 100,000 euros in the first year.”

Openleaks creators have experience with leaks. Daniel Domscheit-Berg and Herbert Snorrason worked with Wikileaks until they parted due to differences with the founder, the Australian Julian Assange.
