PayPal Cuts Off Support Account For WikiLeaks Whistle-Blower Bradley Manning


eBay payment subsidiary PayPal.com has cut off a support account for U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning. The account that was frozen belonged to the Courage to Resist organization. The Courage to Resist partnered with the Bradley Manning Support Network for raising funds in support of Manning. Manning was one of the whistle-blowers of government documents that was leaked on to Wikileaks. “We’ve been in discussions with PayPal for weeks, and by their own admission there’s no legal obligation for them to close down our account,” said Loraine Reitman of the Bradley Manning Support Network (Support Network). “This was an internal policy decision by PayPal.” [BradleyManning.org]
