OpenLeaks is a project that aims at making whistleblowing safer and more widespread. This will be done by providing dedicated and generally free services to whistleblowers and organizations interested in transparency. We will also create a Knowledge Base aiming to provide a comprehensive reference to all areas surrounding whistleblowing.
Watch our draft video above to see how we will work and how this is different from existing whistleblowing platforms.
Read our founding statement on our News page for more details. In the upcoming weeks and months we shall be releasing more information regarding our concept and progression thereof.
Help us become better!
Please direct constructive criticism and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org

Leakspin on Cairo cables which tell about police torture practices and this being a part of every day life. Horrible stories about the use of electro-shocking, shooting and killing by the Egyptian police over petty disputes. Free Egypt now!

Beijing blocks searches for “Egypt” from microblogging site following protests there. There is limited information on the Egypt protests available in China.
China has blocked the word “Egypt” from the country’s wildly popular Twitter-like service, while coverage of the political turmoil has been tightly restricted in state media.
China’s ruling Communist Party is sensitive to any potential source of social unrest.
A search for “Egypt” on the Sina microblogging service brings up a message saying, “According to relevant laws, regulations and policies, the search results are not shown”.
The service has more than 50 million users.
News on the Egypt protests has been limited to a few paragraphs and photos buried inside major news websites, but China Central Television had a report on its midday broadcast.
China’s foreign ministry did not respond to a request for comment Saturday on the events in Egypt.
