A NORWEIGAN lawmaker said yesterday he had nominated website WikiLeaks for this year's Nobel Peace Prize.

The website, founded by Australian editor Julian Assange, released thousands of confidential US documents about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Department of State diplomatic cables.

Jailed Chinese dissident "Liu Xiaobo was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize last year for his struggle for human rights, democracy and freedom of speech in China," Snorre Valen, a member of the Socialist Left Party that is part of the ruling left-leaning coalition, wrote on his blog.

"Likewise: WikiLeaks have [sic] contributed to the struggle for those very values globally, by exposing (among many other things) corruption, war crimes and torture - sometimes even conducted by allies of Norway," he wrote, implicitly referring to the United States.

The deadline for this year's Nobel Peace nominations expired Tuesday, with thousands of people eligible to submit proposals, including members of parliament and government worldwide, university professors, previous laureates and members of several international institutes.

The names of nominees are kept secret for 50 years, but those entitled to nominate candidates are free to reveal their picks for the prestigious award, which will be announced in October.

I will cheer loudly if Wikileaks is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize... which was devalued by awarding it to Arafat & Obama.
