New legal victory for Kim Dotcom

New Zealand Justice confirmed that the founder of Megaupload was able to access the evidence seized by the police during his raid in 2012.

New setback for Kim Dotcom's accusers.

 Finally, the police can keep the items it considers evidence but it is required to provide a clone of the device to the defenders. This new decision is yet another setback for the Americans who demand the extradition of Kim Schmitz, alias Kim Dotcom, the German-Finnish citizenship.
