Anti-graft organisation Transparency International-India (TII) will run a WikiLeak-style website in India to unearth and recover thousands of crores of black money stagnating both within and outside the country.

A ‘Star Action Team’ of lawyers, jurists and bureaucrats will upload data regarding black money after collecting and verifying the evidence, TII said at a press conference organised at the end of a two-day anti-graft summit.

The website, freedomfromcorruption.in will have the detailed information of assets, photographs, documentary evidences, videos and names of suspected family members and partners, the organisation said. The movement against black money has the blessings of eminent lawyers and experts, who will help in litigation involved in such exercises.

The movement under the banner of the freedom against corruption will be created by forging alliances with Indian and foreign civil society organisations working in the field, said Anupama Jha of TII.

She said that many individuals and organisations have already volunteered for the cause. The anti-graft organisation 5th pillar is a partner in the campaign.

“The Star Action Team will uncover owners of properties, assets and the life style purchased by plundering the state(public money). It will upload evidences like details of cars and addresses of properties with documentary evidences,” said Vijay Anand of 5th pillar.
