A document obtained by The Associated Press shows that a firm asked by Visa to investigate WikiLeaks' finances has found no proof the group's fundraising arm is breaking the law in its home base of Iceland.

But Visa Europe Ltd. said Wednesday it would continue blocking donations to the secret-spilling site until it completes its own investigation.

Company spokeswoman Amanda Kamin said she couldn't say when Visa's inquiry, now stretching into its eighth week, would be finished.

Visa was one of several US companies that cut its ties with WikiLeaks after it began publishing a massive trove of secret US diplomatic memos late last year. U.S. officials have accused the site of putting U.S. national security at risk.
