Fatty’s other problem


Kim Dotcom might like to play the bravado card, but he still has another little immigration problem to deal with.

While Kim Dotcom may be vowing to fight his extradition all the way to the Supreme Court, he faces another challenge: potentially losing his residency and being deported.

Immigration New Zealand has confirmed Dotcom’s permanent residency status was still being investigated.  

“Immigration New Zealand is still assessing Mr Dotcom’s potential liability for deportation,” a spokesman said today.

Last year it was alleged Dotcom failed to disclose a dangerous driving conviction when applying to be a New Zealand resident.

Immigration New Zealand said it was still working through issues raised by Dotcom’s lawyer.

If his residency were revoked, it would mean he could potentially be deported before his extradition saga was even over.

He lied, he’s been nothing but trouble ever since, give him the arse card and repatriate him to Germany via NZ1 (which stops in LA.)
