Whistleblower web-site www.WikiLeaks.org has closed down - hopefully temporarily - and is appealing for financial assistance to fund its operations. Details on how to donate money can be found at www.WikiLeaks.org.

Although WikiLeaks operates in secrecy and, as such, one can never be certain that one's donation is being used appropriately, OffshoreAlert considers this a risk worth taking and we will be making a donation shortly.

WikiLeaks has been an enormously useful tool in bringing to the public's attention documents and information that 'the man' does not want in the public domain. It has become a force for positive change in the world, particularly in countries controlled by oppressive governments.

Free speech is the ultimate sign of an advanced society, hence the reason for our decision to make a donation to the cause.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
