Wikileaks in Court

A Dutch judge made a strange move today. In the decision to send back Afghanistan refugees, the judge decided to take the statements by the ministry used during due process less into account. Instead, given information supplied by Wikileaks, the refugees may stay.

The relevant part of the decision:
" (...) De rechtbank is er niet langer van overtuigd dat het feitencomplex waarop de ambtsberichten zijn gebaseerd voor juist moet worden gehouden."
"(...) The court is no longer convinced that the complex of facts on which the  official messages are based can still be seen as valid."
In short, the judge thinks governments may be lying.
