Visa Again Blocks Funds For Wikileaks

That appears to have been an accident, at least as far as Visa Europe Ltd. was concerned. In an email to The Associated Press, the company said that one of its financial partners had "briefly accepted payments on a merchant site linked to WikiLeaks."
"As soon as this came to our attention, action was taken with the suspension of Visa payment acceptance to the site remaining in place," the company said.
