Svar från PayPal

Dear Tobias Hellsten,

Thank you for contacting PayPal. We apologise for the delay in
responding to your email regarding WikiLeaks.

PayPal has permanently restricted the account used by WikiLeaks due to a
violation of the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, which states that our
payment service cannot be used for any activities that encourage,
promote, facilitate, or instruct others to engage in illegal activity.
We’ve notified the account holder of this action.

PayPal was not contacted by any government organization in the U.S. or
abroad and asked to take this action. However, the U.S. Department of
State’s November 27th letter to WikiLeaks did trigger a review of this
account, which we determined to be in violation of our AUP. The letter
stated that WikiLeaks activities were in violation of U.S. law.

I understand your frustration regarding this matter and regret any
inconvenience this might have caused.

Yours sincerely,

Felanmälan till Paypal

Lämnar in felanmälan till Paypal:
"As democratic values are under attack it is very important to be able to support those who provide and protect the truth, however there seems to be a problem reaching Wikileaks with donations through Paypal. Please fix this ASAP!" - nu har de 24 timmar på sig att reparera, annars avslutar jag kontot.
