On the title page of VeraCrypt is described that behind is IDRIX, which is French company and thus must comply with laws of France.

According to latest political developemnt

and also Key disclosure article on Wikipedia

I would like to hear from VeraCrypt autors how they can stand and defend agains government.

Because BitLocker authors were aproached by FBI

it would be good to have a page with information about government requests for "cooperation".
