While the Wikileaks grand jury has been and will be held in secrecy, information helping us to better understand the issues it raises are scattered all over the internet. Because people need to know the facts to make up their mind and perhaps eventually take action Understanding the Wikileaks Grand Jury aims at gathering information and to provide clear and detailed explanations.

Beyond the grand jury this blog will occasionally tackle questions regarding Julian Assange’s potential extradition, as well as the espionage act in order to give you a bigger picture of the legal situation the Wikileaks’ founder is facing.
