Dotcom - extradition recommended

Article  \  23 Dec 2015

In the District Court at Auckland today, Judge Dawson has ruled that Kim Dotcom and his co-accused faced an 'overwhelming' amount of evidence that all four defendants should be surrendered to the US to face charges of copyright infringement, money-laundering and racketeering related to the file-sharing website, Megaupload. The defendants have 15 days to appeal, which is highly likely, and the matter is once again likely to wind its way through New Zealand's appellate courts.
