Iceland Set To Become A Press Freedom Haven
After Iceland’s near-economic collapse laid bare deep-seated corruption,
the country aims to become a safe haven for journalists and whistleblowers from around the globe by creating the world’s most far-reaching freedom of information legislation.
The project is being developed with the help of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
It flies in the face of a growing tendency of governments trying to stifle a barrage of secret and sometimes embarrassing information made readily available by the internet.
