Meanwhile, further revelations about the nature of the charges against the Megaupload founder could be made public, if a court lifts a suppression.
US prosecutors are seeking to expose the allegations against Dotcom and his co-accused, so victims of his alleged crime can make a claim against his cash and assets seized in the raids.
The US has asked New Zealand authorities to lift the order on the case record, an almost 200-page document with all the details – before the victims’ claim rights expire.
Dotcom is fighting the request, saying it will affect his chance of a fair trial, according to his US lawyer Ira Rothken.
A decision is expected later this week.
Dotcom relentlessly plays to the public, and tells his side of the story. Yet he is in court demanding that the other side of the story not be allowed to be made public. If he really thinks he has done nothing wrong, then why oppose it? Shouldn’t he want it released so he can rebut it in his favourite court – the court of public opinion.Tags: Kim Dotcom
