WikiLeaks cleared of breaking Australian law


www.news.com.au

THE WikiLeaks project has been officially cleared of breaking Australian law.
The Australian Federal Police today said an investigation which began November 30 had detected no offences.

"The AFP has completed its evaluation of the material available and has not established the existence of any criminal offences where Australia would have jurisdiction.

This finding is an embarrassment to Prime Minister Julia Gillard who initially said the leaking of confidential cables to Washington from the US Embassy in Canberra was illegal.

When asked about the AFP's findings today, Ms Gillard described the site as grossly irresponsible and maintained that she was not a fan of it.

It was incredibly stupid for Gillard to come out and label this as criminal without the facts and probably will lead to her replacement next election.

Good to see we wasted more money on a investigation that was pointless and only proved that our leader is irrational and wont stand up for an Australian in need,

But what could you expect letting someone who was not even born in this country run it

Well now that they are clear in Australia I wonder how many more will clear them on the same grounds? All it takes is one country to stand up and say it's not illegal and many more are sure to follow. This is actually kind of a big win for Wikileaks.

Hey, what Wikileaks is posting is becoming less and less of a crime every day... What with all the redactions and full-on deletions they've been doing to the cables without telling anyone... PROOF

Julia not a fan of transparent international relations, no real surprise there with her secret coup of the leadership. Rather the public remain mushrooms while the big money does as it pleases. Well done to the AFP in sorting that one out fairly quickly.

In all fairness Rudd was more against Wiki till that release from the US that said he was useless..
Then I think he went a little anti US and stuck up for Wiki..

But Gillard? What a troll.....

It's amazing how fast these politicans back peddle when they find themselves out of step with the population.

It's aslo amazing that some authority has come out and said that wilikeacks has is guilty of nothing which is inconsistant withe PTB but give it a bit of time, I bet all the major goverments in "westen DOMOCRACIES" will all pass a suit of laws that will make what wikileacks is currently doing illegal.

Well then they better start defending their citizen! There is now no excuse for them not getting involved with this and blocking the eventual attempt at extradition to the United States.
