Australia’s Gillard Condemns WikiLeaks Actions as ‘Illegal’

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard condemned the release of U.S. diplomatic cables and other documents on the website as “illegal.”

The government is being briefed on the information that has been disclosed and will go through the documents to assess their implications, Gillard told 4BC radio in Australia today.

WikiLeaks receives material that governments and businesses seek to keep secret and publishes them. The non-profit group on Nov. 28 began releasing more than 250,000 U.S. State Department documents that officials wanted to keep confidential.

“I absolutely condemn the placement of this information on the WikiLeaks website,” Gillard said today. ‘It is a grossly irresponsible thing to do and an illegal thing to do.’’

Julian Assange, the 39-year-old founder of the website, is an Australian national.
