Wikileaks begins release of 2.5m. Syrian emails

Thursday, July 5, 2012

WikiLeaks said on Thursday it had begun Syrian [1] government officials that would embarrass not only Damascus, which is trying to crush a 16-month rebellion, but also its opponents.

Speaking at a press conference in London, a Wikileaks spokeswoman said the emails were from Syrian political figures, government ministries and companies, dating from August 2006 to March 2012.

A statement quoted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as saying: “The material is embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents.”

The spokeswoman said “The Syria Files” would shine a light on the inner workings of the Syrian government and economy, but would “also reveal how the West and Western companies say one thing and do another.”
