WikiLeaks requests nominations for 2009's Most Wanted Leaks—the concealed documents or recordings most sought after by a country's journalists, activists, historians, lawyers, police, or human rights investigators.


You may securely and anonymously add your nomination by editing this page. WikiLeaks will then prioritize the list and seek to obtain the leading candidates directly, through the legal system, or indirectly through its network of journalists, intelligence sources, volunteers and readers.

Be sure to ask your "offline" contacts for their nomination also; we seek nominations that reflect the whole of society.

Documents or other materials added nominated must:

  • Have political, diplomatic or historical impact.
  • Be known to exist or have existed.
  • Be plausibly obtainable to a well motivated insider or outsider. For instance the entire collection of documents held by the Chinese Ministry of Public Security (中华人民共和国公安部) is not plausibly obtainable, but a specific document or group of documents may be.
  • Be well defined, and if possible, specific. Three examples of well defined and specific:

An accepted example of known to exist and well defined, but not specific:

  • The current list of websites or URLS filtered by the Chinese Public Security Bureau's "Great Firewall of China" censorship system.
  • Be described in enough detail so that a court, dissident insider or visiting outsider not already familiar with the material or its subject matter may be able to quickly locate it, and will be motivated to do so.
  • Should, where possible, list all organizations, locations and/or websites suspected of holding the material or having information about how to access it.

Nominations follow. Simply click "edit" on the country below. If your country does not yet exist in the list, please add it to the country that it alphabetically close to it, via typing "== country name ==". See how the other countries are specified for examples.

Be attentive to the content of your nomination. Do not worry about making formatting mistakes. All copies of this page are kept and reviewed.

In the rare cases were a document might be destroyed or vaulted if it appeared on this list, send your nomination privately to [email protected] or securely via Chat.

The existence of this correspondence is well documented in the media, for example that Qwest's lawyers refused to cooperate because the FISA Court had not signed off on it.
