New Zealand launches spy probe into Megaupload founder's arrest

Sep 26, 2012 by

New Zealand has launched a probe into allegations of "unlawful spying" by government agents which led to the arrest of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom.

The 38-year-old is fighting extradition to the US on internet piracy charges.

In June, a court ruled that search warrants used in the raid on his home in Auckland were illegal.

The FBI alleges that the German national, who is also known as Kim Schmitz, led a group that netted more 125 million euros by copying and distributing copyright content.
