Julian Assange
Stockholm, Dec 10: US and other world leaders are still smarting with the stinging revelations from Wikileaks. With Julian Assange jailed over alleged rape and molestation charges, this has become the ideal time for a group of ex-Wikileaks employees to create another site, with similar intentions.

Openleaks is the website proposed to be started and is in protest against "autocratic" Assange, according to a report that appeared in a Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter.

"Our long-term goal is to build a strong, transparent platform to support whistle-blowers, both in terms of technology and politics, while at the same time encouraging others to start similar projects," The Telegraph quoted a source connected to the new site as saying in the Swedish newspaper.

The source who did not wish to be named said that the new organisation will be democratically run rather than being limited to one group or individual, taking a jibe at Assange's exercising of authority at Wikileaks.

The modus operandi for Openleaks is going to be such that it would not publish information directly but other organisations would access Openleaks to give out their information. The site hopes to be a haven for whistle-blowers to reveal information.

"As a result of our intention not to publish any document directly and in our own name, we do not expect to experience the kind of political pressure which WikiLeaks is under at this time," the paper quoted another person, as saying.
