Mastercard and Visa Suspend Donation Payments Made to WikiLeaks Through Their Services

Visa Europe has suspended payments of donations made to Wikileaks pending an investigation into the organisation.

Mastercard suspended payments yesterday.

A spokeswoman for Visa Europe said its investigation would determine the nature of Wikileaks' business, and "whether it contravenes Visa operating rules".

Mastercard said in a statement that it was "in the process of working to suspend the acceptance of Mastercard cards on Wikileaks until the situation is resolved".
