WikiLeaks' infamous saga, involving the leak of hundreds of thousands of secret US cables, has cost OHB-System's CEO Berry Smutny his job. The Bremen-based OHB-System is one of Germany's most prominent space companies; and is part of the group that will develop Galileo's first 14 operational spacecraft.
WikiLeaks to be charged with Espionage as investigation by the Justice department shows that the website is posting classified news about the govt. and the armed forces and they also suspect that the website has got ties with the Twitter Inc. through which they access to personal data of the users which they publish in their website.
