Ecuador Arrests WikiLeaks 'Collaborator'

Police in Ecuador have arrested Swedish programmer and digital privacy activist Ola Bini.

He's been accused of trying to destabilize the Ecuadorian government by “collaborating” with WikiLeaks.

Gizmodo reports Bini was arrested at Quito Airport in Ecuador on his way to Japan.

Ecuador’s interior minister Maria Paula Romo alleges that Bini worked with “two Russian hackers” who also live in Ecuador, but it’s unclear whether anyone else has been apprehended yet in connection to the case.
