Bank of America said it will no longer process transactions for the website WikiLeaks, following similar actions by several other financial institutions.
The bank said in a statement that it believes that the site “may be engaged in activities that are, among other things, inconsistent with our internal policies for processing payments”.
It joins other financial institutions including MasterCard and PayPal that have stopped handling payments for the site.
Reached by phone, Bank of America spokesperson Scott Silvestri declined further comment to The Associated Press. — Sapa-AP
