New Zealand: Kim Dotcom fights back
Mr Dotcom - the german-born founder of file-sharing website MegaUpload - will instead focus his attention on reclaiming property which was seized during the 2011 raid, reports Radio New Zealand.
Following a 2012 ruling that the raid on Mr Dotcom’s Coatesville mansion was illegal, lawyers launched two complaints – one seeking compensation for damages and the other to retrieve seized evidence. It was agreed today that the claims will be addressed separately.
Mr Dotcom's lawyer Paul Davison, QC, has called for Assistant Police Commissioner Malcolm Burgess and Detective Inspector Grant Wormald to give evidence regarding their roles in the raid and use of the Government's spy agency in the lead-up to it.
