[NetworkWorld] EU foreign ministers stick up for Wikileaks

The European Union's foreign ministers issued a statement on Thursday reiterating the rights of whistleblowing websites such as Wikileaks.

The committee is concerned that politically motivated pressure on Internet platforms and online service providers could undermine the rights to freedom of expression and association that are guaranteed under Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The committee also expressed concern about the threat to these rights caused by cyberattacks against such websites.
