Kim Dotcom’s assets are frozen, I hope his tame hacker has been paid…along with all his other enablers. The freeze presumably includes all his Mega shares…which will make it harder for him to continue his sell down to get cash.
How long before the mansion becomes available for rent again?
Kim Dotcom’s assets will be within reach of the United States before the entrepreneur’s extradition process is completed.
A Court of Appeal decision, released today, means millions of dollars, several luxury cars, jewellery and other property remain frozen.
The ruling is also a blow for Mona Dotcom, who is now separated from Dotcom and unsuccessfully applied for her property to be excluded from the order.
Ms Dotcom had argued that she had not been charged with any offence and had no knowledge that any property was the proceeds of criminal activity.
The US government’s attempts to have Kim Dotcom extradited to face trial on copyright infringement, money laundering and racketeering charges relating to file-sharing website Megaupload have been delayed by numerous court battles.
He has not been able to access the assets because of a foreign restraining order made at the time of his high-profile arrest in Coatesville in January 2012.
The order expired in April and the High Court turned down a police application to extend it.
That decision was appealed, and today’s decision quashes it and extends the restraining order until April next year.
Good, now I need to go through the asset lists provided in the affidavits…then I can check them off against the asset lists I ahve built from my sources and see what is missing.
It would be pretty bad if Kim Dotcom has perjured himself in his affidavits.
