“Increased secrecy breeds corruption” – WikiLeaks spokesperson

Governments should work on decreasing secrecy around its activities, believes WiliLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson.

”There has to be a change in the policy of increased secrecy that we have seen in the last decade since 9/11,” he said. “There is an unhealthy progress that we are seeing with increased government secrecy. At the same time, the privacy of individuals is decreasing. That is not a very good equation. Increased secrecy breeds corruption.”
