Germany's Wau Holland Foundation has told newspaper Der Freitag Wikileaks receives no money for personnel costs, only for hardware, travelling and bandwidth. Hendrik Fulda, the foundation's second chairman, says around 30.000 euros have been handed out after receiving signed receipts. According to Fulda, most of the money has been mainly used to restore Wikileaks and keep the site up and running.
In the last few weeks, Wikileaks has come under fire from various sides. Wired's Threat Level blog stated the site had fallen into disrepair, some anonymous writer of emails labelling him- or herself as "an Wikileaks insider) has had emails posted on Cryptome.org.
Wired's Threat Level blog is maintained by Kevin Poulsen, who originally reported that Adrian Lamo, a self-proclaimed hacker and journalist, had turned a whistleblower and Wikileaks source in to the police. Poulsen and Lamo, who happen to be acquaintances, were blasted for their action on Wikileaks's Twitter account.
Cryptome.org founder John Young believes Wikileaks is not a group of activists, but some sort of shady spy outfit maintained by the CIA, or MI6, or phantom menaces from Mars. He has posted emails on his site from said "Wikileaks Insider" stating Wikileaks will be abandoned and that Wikileaks' speaker Julian Assange had funneled off 225,000 euro of donations and similar rants. Neither claim has proven to be true.
Anyone interested can email the Wau Holland Foundation for detailed statements regarding its government of European donations to Wikileaks, instead of following red herrings.
