According to The Guardian, Hacker group Anonymous reportedly published the emails hacked from the law firm Puckett & Faraj representing staff sergeant Frank Wuterich, who is responsible for the deaths of 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians at Haditha.

The group last week reported that it has broken into the website of a law firm that represented a US Marine accused of killing civilians in Haditha, Iraq – the emails contain detailed records, transcripts, testimony, trial evidence, and legal defense donation records pertaining to not only Frank Wuterich, but also many other marines they have represented.

In the emails, Neal Puckett, the law firm’s founder and a former marine, writes to one of Wuterich’s supporters: “Frank Wuterich represents the best this country has to offer and deserved nothing less. I was inspired by his insistence that he take responsibility for all that his Marines did or failed to do that day. He refused to have it any other way.” In other emails released by Anonymous, members of the firm appear to worry that hack may “completely destroy the Law Firm.”

Earlier the group hacked Greek Ministry of Justice Website in protest against the controversial ACTA treaty – and recently group posted the tweet on the micro-blogging site with a line to an intercepted FBI/Scotland Yard telephone conference call, hacking FBI and Scotland Yard conference call.

The group even announced the period of whole of March as “Black March”, stated, “We will not tolerate the Media Industries’ lobbying for legislation which will censor the Internet,” – pointing boycott of music, films and other media throughout the month of March.
