Portugal: Tugaleaks Bank Account Deemed as Terrorist and Closed

Categories: Western Europe, Portugal, Freedom of Speech, Governance, Ideas, Law, Protest

Website Tugaleaks, which aims to serve since December 2010 as Portugal's Wikileaks, had its bank account for donations arbitrarily closed on July 13 with no official communication [1] [pt]. Tugaleaks contributors were finally told the account had been closed based on Act 25/2008 [2] [pt] of money laundering and terrorist financing, which they contested and thus concluded: “We must bother lots of people, for sure”.
