He observed that the “WikiLeaks reports didn’t harm or damage the nation or the common person, rather it helped the nation understand the real mindset of our rulers”.

He also wrote in the judgement: “Nothing is greater than the truth and whatever WikiLeaks has published now, the Pakistani media had been revealing to the masses already.”

The judge further declared the WikiLeaks reports were based on facts.
