Things are getting grim for Kim Dotcom.
Yesterday he was in court having his bail conditions reviewed and got spanked by the judge with tough new conditions pending a hearing next week.
A judge has imposed new bail conditions on Kim Dotcom ahead of a bail hearing to take place next week, Radio NZ is reporting.
The state broadcaster says District Court Judge Nevin Dawson has decided the German entrepreneur must report daily to police and has banned the use of helicopters or boat or travel 80km from his home.
This is ahead of a bail hearing to take place next Monday, which NBR ONLINE understands the judge cut short a holiday to make himself available for.
The Crown is applying to have Dotcom’s bail revoked. The accused pirate, money launderer and racketeer was held in Mt Eden Prison after the January 20, 2012 raid on his rented mansion before being granted bail on February 22, 2012.
It has been reported that¬†all legal arguments for the bail hearing have been suppressed.
