18th December 2010, Comments 0 comments

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange Saturday denounced a "new type of business McCarthyism" in the United States after the Bank of America halted all transactions to the website.

"Bank of America put out a statement... that it is not willing to transport any transactions by any of its clients to any organisations collecting money on our behalf," he told AFP.

"It's a new type of business McCarthyism in the US to deprive this organisation the funds that is needs to survive, to deprive me personally of the funds that my lawyers need to protect me against extradition to the US or to Sweden," Assange added.
