WikiLeaks started to publish 251,287 leaked classified cables transmitted by U.S embassies in many countries, and last Tuesday its founder Julian Assange was arrested in London.
I was hoping that there would be a surprise from the 3,059 cables sent by U.S Embassy in Jakarta when the news about IndoLeaks emerged.
According to Chanel 6 News Online, in just two days after launching of the website www.indoleaks.org on Human Rights Day, 10 December 2010, more than 100,000 documents have been downloaded by its users.
The website published, among others, the following documents :
- Visum on victims on victims of the Indonesian Communist Party
- Audit on Lapindo Mud Flow by the State Audit Agency
- US Embassy report about Timor
- Fact finding report about Munir
Unlike WikiLeaks which mentioned the name of its founder, Indoleaks does not mention any names of person/company who founded and managed the website, therefore it is difficult to give comment about it.
