New Zealand's Human Rights Tribunal has ordered the government to pay file-sharing mogul Kim Dotcom €53,000 for privacy breaches. For years, the Megaupload founder has fought a request for extradition to the US.
A police dawn raid on Kim Dotcom at the Internet mogul’s home in New Zealand in 2012 has ended in a monetary settlement. The German-born entrepreneur is still fighting extradition sought by the USA.
Kim Dotcom is resisting extradition to face criminal and civil charges in the US for his now-defunct streaming website, Megaupload. He could now lose up to $40 million.
