    WikiLeaks announced the release of top secret documents related to Germany.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The WikiLeaks whistleblower portal announced on Monday it would reveal a fresh portion of classified documents related to Germany later in the day.

    "Stay tuned for a release of top secret documents related to Germany at 18:00 CET [17:00 GMT]," WikiLeaks said via its Twitter account.

    In April, an espionage scandal gripped Germany as media revealed that the German intelligence agency BND provided technical assistance to the US surveillance organization NSA in spying on European targets, including political figures and corporations. A German parliamentary commission initiated an investigation into the case.

    Last week, WikiLeaks posted a trove of redacted NSA spying lists. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange offered to provide the Bundestag committee with the complete list of spying targets in Germany, in a recent interview with Germany’s Spiegel Online magazine.

    In 2013, US intelligence services came under increased scrutiny for their mass surveillance program after NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden leaked classified documents revealing the enormity of US global spying programs.
