Whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks has hailed an "important victory" in its
campaign against a block on processing donations to the organisation by credit
A court ruling in Iceland was the biggest victory to date against the "unlawful and arbitrary" economic blockade, it said.
Iceland's Supreme Court upheld a decision that online payments firm Valitor had unlawfully terminated its contract with WikiLeaks donations processor DataCell.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said: "This is a victory against the rise of economic censorship to crack down against journalists and publishers. We thank the Icelandic people for showing that they will not be bullied by powerful Washington-backed financial services companies like Visa."
