Google provided WikiLeaks journalists‘ metadata in Julian Assange investigation | Technology

 Sarah Harrison, assistant to Julian Assange, thanks supporters outside Ecuador'’s embassy in London in 2012. She is among the journalists whose details were provided to authorities.



Google secretly gave the emails of WikiLeaks journalists to the US government in response to an espionage investigation targeting Julian Assange, according to documents disclosed by the internet giant.


Three journalists who have worked for WikiLeaks since 2010 – Sarah Harrison, Joseph Farrell and Kristinn Hrafnsson – have been informed by Google that all their Gmail account content, metadata, subscriber information, and other content were provided to US federal law enforcement in response to search warrants issued in March 2012.
