Watch what you tweet: Caution thrown to wind as WikiLeaks breaks gag order

July 31, 2014 -- Updated 1228 GMT (2028 HKT)
They were warned not to share it, but share it they did.
Australians, intrigued by the latest revelation from WikiLeaks, took to social media to pass on a document they were never meant to see.
On Wednesday morning, the whistleblowing group, headed by Julian Assange, broke a suppression order, which was itself subject to a suppression order.
In the United Kingdom, such an order is known as a super-injunction, and is used by judges to ensure secrecy around specific events. And many people talking about the case on Twitter used the hashtag #superinjunction.
This one involves a court case, international politicians and allegations that a Supreme Court judge in the Australian state of Victoria deemed should not be repeated.
The Victorian Supreme Court declined to comment on the matter to CNN.
On its website, WikiLeaks provided more information -- enough to see those responsible for breaking the order prosecuted in an Australian court, one expert said.
"They [Wikileaks] have put themselves in the position of judge, jury and executioner," said Peter Bartlett, a media lawyer from Minter Ellison law firm in Melbourne.

makes me so giddy

I dont know about everyone else, but I love it when people defy an abusive government. It gives me one of those rare euphoric feelings.

And just thinking about all of those guilty and how freaked out they are...ohhh yeah that is the cherry on top.

It's the US equivalent of indictments on Yellin and Bernanke

If this makes it way into the Australian press, all hell will break loose.
Definitely SHTF in Aussieland.

Was kinda hoping this topic would gain traction, thanks for posting I hate bumping for the sake of bumping lol.

Australian banksters have been caught with international bribes

On foreign government banks in Asia, involving massive contracts and powers. This is the buzz, not verified.

Australian government must be scared sh!tless, no wonder they placed a double injunction on the gag order.

I wonder if our own private Fed has done this?

Double injunction reminds me of "Animal House"

Assange is on double-secret probation!

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
