"Radioleaks" soon to open to the public
Swedish Radio will soon open "Radioleaks", a service which will make it possible to transfer information in a "secure, encrypted and anonymous way" to the public service radio. The information will then be processed by a very small group of investigative reporters at Swedish Radio, which will then judge the information and process it journalistically.
In a press statement, Rolf Stengård, editor of investigative reporting at Swedish Radio, says "Swedish Radio takes the protection of sources seriously and will not reveal the identity of any source that will give us information."
He adds that it is never easy to decide to become a whistle blower, but "with the creation of Radioleaks we want to say that Swedish Radio is prepared to receive the material."
