Put up and shut up,Visa Iceland/Valitor ordered in WikiLeaks case

Iceland’s Supreme Court has ruled that Valitor (formerly Visa Iceland) must pay WikiLeaks $204,900 per month or $2,494,604 per year in fines if it continues to blockade the whistle-blowing site,  says RT.

“The court upheld the decision that Valitor had unlawfully terminated its contract with WikiLeaks’ donation processor, DataCell,” says the story, adding:

“WikiLeaks founder Julian Assage thanked the Icelandic people for showing that they will not be bullied by powerful Washington backed financial services companies like Visa.”

The court’s decision is final.
