UK Introduces ‘WikiLeaks Act’ To Criminalize Whistleblowing

In a move that seems calculated to appease the American intelligence establishment that made no secret of its support for Clinton during the election, the United Kingdom has introduced legislation to “overhaul” the nation’s Official Secrets Act. Colloquially referred to as the “WikiLeaks Act”, the measure will effectively criminalize whistleblowers from coming forward with evidence of wrongdoing, with offenders being at risk of spending up to 14 years behind bars.
