A man is accused of being the source behind the “football leaks,” which exposed corruption and wrongdoing in the European soccer industry. He’s receiving legal aid from @TheSignalsNetw, and should be supported by all who care about press freedom. https://t.co/1zg14Y7jWN

“Football Leaks investigative project continues.
This is a cross-border investigation into how the secret deals of club officials, leading associations, agents, investors and players have corrupted the most popular sport in the world.
Continues revelations are based on research into more then 70 million documents totalling 3.4 terabytes of data. The data extends to the year 2018.
Recent work was undertaken by the network European Investigative Collaborations (EIC) and its partners, which has brought together 15 media and almost 80 journalists from 13 countries, publishing in 11 languages across Europe.
We will also upload all of our stories below, published in different languages by different media organizations.”
A new wave of football revelations has begun…
Let‘s not forget the journalists currently jailed #FreeDeniz #FreeWaLone #FreeKyawSoeOo and the brave whistleblowers #PanamaPapers #ParadisePapers #FootballLeaks #Laundromat @snowden who risked much to make the world a better place. Merry Christmas to all of you. Stay safe!
