Dotcom

Kim Dotcom's bail is to be decided today. Starts at 10am.

NO 1 COURT BEFORE THE HON. JUSTICE POTTER
Ground Floor (Old Building)
10.00am
CIV2012-404-0033 THE COMMISSIONER OF POLICE v KIM DOTCOM & ORS
(A Toohey) ( A Lloyd ,P Davison QC)
Application for Registration of Foreign Restraining Orders


The NZ Police are acting for - acting as agents of - the US government in this matter. The NZ government have thus taken sides in this dispute (that is essentially civil rather than criminal - being a copyright infringement issue) and now they bring the full weight of the Crown's institutional position upon the Mega Upload principals. Despite Kim's fame, fortune and a QC the deck is stacked against him.

Hopefully the judiciary will demonstrate that they are independent of government and continue Kim's bail. He will have to wait many months for the extradition hearing and having to wait in a remand cell is onerous.

The prosecution's contention that he is a flight risk seems self-fulfilling. It would be rational and quite reasonable for him to flee if they tried to remand him in jail on a charge that would not be extraditable in his home country (Germany). Kim's treatment by NZ authorities has been dismal. Who could blame him for fleeing a country that he deposits millions of dollars with only to have that and his other assets seized by that country's government on behalf of another country for a crime that isn't even a crime in the country he is in? Is this the way we treat our guests and residents?

The F.I.B. has blown it and in the eyes of the majority of thinking New Zealanders, exposed themselves totally as the corrupt, guardians of the PTB that they've always been!! . . . I know it looks and feels like our police and judiciary have all fallen on their knees, making slurping noises . . . and are the ones "blowing" it - and in the most part they have

This was suppossed to be a standard operation - for them. i.e. charge in,high level beauracrats in washington D.C.have made the nessecary phone calls to our people, the seeds of panic have been sown "terrorists, billions, national security." (left unsaid - the $$$ being lost by the 1%!!)

And judges are requiring EVIDENCE !! Who the hell do they think they are. evidence !! we told them he was dangerous . . . thats all you need to know - you're just suppossed to jail him and be suitabley impressed that we even talk to you!!

And HE'S ON BAIL ??!!?? WTF

i SAY GOOD SHIT, STICK IT UP THEM LIEIN' THEIVIN', PIECES OF FACIST SHIT !! and mucho respect to Judge Tim Brewer
