Is Kim Dotcom’s time in New Zealand over? The decision to extradite Kim and Go to face charges in US courts

The Auckland District Court ruled this morning that Kim Dotcom and Associates are eligible for extradition to the US on copyright charges.

The Mega Upload founder and co-founder has been in and out of Auckland’s courts since his dramatic raid and arrest by special police forces nearly four years ago.

Since his arrest, Kim has been fighting extradition to the United States. He faces copyright charges from all angles, including founding a failed political party, expensive lawyers and trying to win the hearts of New Zealanders.

The larger-than-life Internet entrepreneur has also raised serious questions about the legality of the raid on his mansion, the arrest warrants issued and the exposure of illegal intelligence that took place before his arrest at the request of the United States. Government.

In the past four years, many New Zealanders have jumped on the dotcom bandwagon, with Kim drawing strong support from all levels of New Zealand society and even receiving a public apology from Prime Minister John Key for the raid and arrest.

Although this was a negative outcome for Kim, the case was universally seen as a scapegoat for Kim, bringing down a major player.

Kim said today that his situation is simple because copyright law is different and no handover can take place under copyright law.

Kim now faces years worth of appeals, which could buy him time as the case moves through the New Zealand legal system, with Kim and his lawyers suggesting they take it to the High Court.
