Or tries to.
With the complicity of California's judiciary, Julius Baer banking corporation, based in fiscal paradises like Switzerland and the Cayman Islands, has managed to completely remove from the Internet the site Wikileaks.org, that is dedicated to expose all sort of controversial secret documents.
Sadly for them, the whistleblower site has many alternative sites outside California that are still available, for instance: http://wikileaks.be/wiki/Wikileaks.
The case is that the site, that has interesting pearls like the one denouncing how the comission in charge of unveiling Stasi's secrets is managed mostly by former Stasi members, has revealed compromising documents that involve the bank in widespread money laundering (link1, link2).
Ironically, trying to silence this site the controversial bank has attracted on itself and its dubious practices much more attention, becoming subject of media scrutiny.
