New Zealand’s Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal against the deportation of Kim Dotcom to the United States. Dotcom has been accused of large-scale theft in the United States. He said on Twitter that he was not impressed by the verdict.
The former CEO of Megaupload could face up to 20 years in prison in the United States. Yahoo writes news. According to the indictment, at least $ 500 million in copyright has been stolen from files shared on Megaupload. Dotcom has blamed Fraud, Fraud, and money laundering.
The legal controversy began in 2012 when the United States demanded that Dotcom be handed over to two others. In 2015, a New Zealand court ruled that he could be deported, after which Dotcom appealed to the High Court in New Zealand. The verdict was later upheld, after which Dotcom went to the Court of Appeals. Here again, it was decided that Dotcom could be deported. Following this, Dotcom went to the Supreme Court.
That court has now ruled that Dotcom and its co-defendants cannot appeal against aspects of the previous ruling. In Published report The Court rejects the argument that the Court of Appeal issued an illegal judgment. “We hope the court can do nothing else on the proposed appeals, based on our decision that justice will not be compromised,” the three Supreme Court justices concluded. The court stated in its judgment that the other arguments cited were “not sufficiently successful to justify appealing to the Supreme Court.”
Dotcom Responds on Twitter That he was not impressed by the verdict. “I’ll start live streaming in January. 2022 will be fun. Enjoy the holidays.” Dotcom did not respond significantly to the court’s ruling. It is unclear whether Dotcom will take legal action.
