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

Via EPJ:

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”.
