wellington - A New Zealand court has determined that internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom may be extradited to the United States. The founder of Megaupload thus hangs a hefty punishment in the US.
A court in New Zealand had ruled last year that it could be extradited to the US. That judgment had challenged the entrepreneur born in Germany. The court now upholds the previous court in the appeal case.
Dotcom was arrested in Auckland more than six years ago, but soon released. He has been convicted in the US for, among other things, violating copyright and money laundering. His company Megaupload, a service where users could store files in the cloud, was addressed in 2012 at the request of the United States.
The Court of Appeal ruled that the United States had 'made a clear case at first glance and that those who had appealed knowingly and knowingly violated the copyright in order to become financially better off. '
The lawyer of Dotcom said that his client appealed to the Supreme Court. 'We look forward to appeal to the Supreme Court. We think Kim Dotcom will eventually win the case, 'said the lawyer.
