Wikileaks is receiving money through Visa and MasterCard for the first time since the credit card giants cut Wikileaks off in December, The Associated Press reported.
The reason for the reversal is not apparent, and it could be unintentional. Visa Europe spokesman Simon Kleine told The AP that processing the payments was not something that we've sanctioned.
Visa and MasterCard both stopped serving Wikileaks after the transparency-seeking organization published some 250,000 classified diplomatic cables. That move prompted an international uproar for exposing sensitive secrets, including condemnations from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. President Barack Obama.
