THIS IS NOT THE GREENS/EFA EULEAKS PLATFORM.
WHAT IS EULEAKS?
EUleaks is a European platform where you can submit information in a highly secure and anonymous way.
Transparency and accountability are essential for democratic governance. The EUleaks project provides a platform for increasing transparency by providing a new tool for information in the public interest to be made available. EUleaks offers a venue for the realisation of freedom of expression as a fundamental right.
Access to information is a remarkable lever to act for the common good in a world in which opacity is increasingly imposing itself as a way to manage institutions and to take decisions. Numerous examples in practice show that disclosure of information can be decisive for driving political change.
We believe that whistle-blowers play an important role in revealing information that is in the public interest, yet they often lack sufficient protection and are vilified, despite the positive changes they can bring. Because of this, we have decided to set up the secure EUleaks channel, which allows you to blow the whistle in defence of the public interest, whilst remaining anonymous.
WHAT INFORMATION MAY I SUBMIT?
HOW CAN I SUBMIT INFORMATION?
For your own security you should not visit EUleaks.eu from your workplace as this will leave a trail (it might help if you clear your browser history). You can only access the platform and submit information to us by downloading and using the Tor browser. To install Tor and read its security tips, visit the website: https://www.torproject.org. Remember that if you visit Tor from your workplace you will also leave a trail of that.
Tor is a secured network, which channels data traffic through three open relays and proceeds with a random choice in order to select your digital ‘location’ in the world. This system thus makes the tracing of connections very difficult, though not totally impossible. Once you have downloaded and installed Tor, copy and paste this link into your Tor browser: eulkspoobuj2ymt7.onion
If you want, you can also pre-encrypt your documents before you visit the site through TOR. This is for advanced users who already know how encryption works. Our public key can be found at eulkspoobuj2ymt7.onion\eulks-submission-key.html (only via the TOR browser) and the fingerprint for the key is 5155 D069 C800 2C7D 456B A4FD C7DD C940 F9D6 B176.
WHAT WILL EULEAKS DO WITH THE DOCUMENTS?
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW DURING ONLINE SUBMISSION?
WILL I HAVE ANONYMITY?
We unfortunately cannot provide any legal support for your personal situation but there are several organisations that have a proven track record in helping whistle-blowers and that you can contact directly.
