Jesse Brown: The UN springs a leak


By Jesse Brown, CBC technology columnist.

Whistle-blowing, muck-raking Wikileaks has done it again, and in a big way.

The full-disclosure website released no fewer than 70 United Nations investigative reports classified as "Strictly Confidential" (and 530 other UN reports, too).

It's going to take some time to parse, confirm, and report these, but early revelations include:

  • Allegations of hundreds of European peace-keepers abusing refugee girls
  • Peruvian generals using Swiss bank accounts to engage in multi-million dollar frauds against the UN.

More to come...
