About the WikiLeaks Legal Defence Fund

The WikiLeaks Legal Defence Fund supports activities to defend Julian Assange and other WikiLeaks journalists.

The Fund supports a dedicated legal and campaign team which defends WikiLeaks in its legal battles around the world and advocates across global media to build support for WikiLeaks and the public’s right to know.


The Courage Foundation and the Legal Defence Fund

The Legal Defence Fund is run by the Courage Foundation – a trust audited by accountants Sterling Partners in the UK for the purpose of providing legal defence and campaign aid to whistleblowers and journalistic sources.

The Courage Foundation is an international organisation that supports those who risk life or liberty to make significant contributions to the historical record. It also campaigns for the protection of truthtellers and the public’s right to know.

The Courage Foundation is overseen by an unrenumerated committee of trustees. WikiLeaks is its eighth beneficiary. The terms of the fund and its trustees can be obtained from Derek Rothera & Company.

This site is commissioned by the trustees of Courage to provide information on Julian Assange and the WikiLeaks’ case, and what members of the public can do to support WikiLeaks journalists.For more information on the Courage Foundation, visit its website here.
