Assange: More leaks to come

Sydney :WikiLeaks is planning new releases of secret documents on controversial negotiations and intelligence agency operations, according to the anti-secrecy organisation’s Australian founder, Julian Assange.In an interview with Fairfax Media, Mr Assange said that while he does not expect to leave Ecuador’s London embassy any time soon, WikiLeaks very much remains in the business of publishing the secrets of diplomats and spies. “There’ll be more publications – about large international so-called free trade deals, and about an intelligence agency,” Mr Assange said.

Over the past two years WikiLeaks has published leaked documents relating to the secret Trans Pacific Partnership trade negotiations as well as talks on the proposed multilateral agreement on Trade in Services. In December 2014, WikiLeaks also published a leaked US Central Intelligence Agency analysis of the effectiveness of drone strikes and another CIA paper on the implications of enhanced airport security arrangements for clandestine intelligence operatives. At that time WikiLeaks said the CIA documents were the beginning of a series of releases relating to the US espionage agency. In a wide ranging interview Mr Assange discussed the recent establishment of a secure internet chat system to enable anonymous sources to contact WikiLeaks and the prospective reintroduction of a secure electronic drop box to facilitate the deposit of leaked documents.
