WikiLeaks Founder Says Next Doc Dump Will Expose Major Financial Institution
WiliLeaks founder Julian Assange is promising another document release, and this time he says it will reveal secrets of a major financial institution.
In an interview with Forbes published on Monday, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said the site would release tens of thousands of documents in early 2011 that he claimed would be comparable to the Enron trial.
“It will give a true and representative insight into how banks behave at the executive level in a way that will stimulate investigations and reforms, I presume,” he promised.
Assange confirmed to Forbes that the upcoming leaks were about a U.S.-based financial institution, but refused to give any more detail about which bank it was.
Assange justified the future havoc he will wreak with his philosophy that leaking the information will mean good business for people who embrace ethical business practices and treat their employees well. After all, according to him, happy employees don’t leak documents that will hurt their employer.
“Let’s say you want to run a good company,” he said. “It’s nice to have an ethical workplace. Your employees are much less likely to screw you over if they’re not screwing other people over.”
Kind of like running an ethical country, eh?Click here for reuse options!
