Crown Appeals Kim DotCom Release, Hearing on Tuesday.

It's back to the High Court for MegaUpload founder Kim DotCom. The Crown has appealed the order granting him bond, and a hearing has been set for Tuesday.

The Crown Prosecution is not representing the people of New Zealand in this case, it is representing the United States. In other words, the Crown probably couldn't care less that Kim DotCom is on bail, it's just doing what the FBI has requested.

The U.S. has until March 5 to file its extradition request.

    all must know that Jeralyn stays up until all hours of the night researching and sleuthing these stories that are from a different time zone that is a day ahead of us.  In the stories from Bali she also had to translate all those articles from what ever that language is over there.  Way to go girl...

    Thanks for noticing! (5.00 / 2) (#2)

    quite inspiring to read the actual news from the other side of the international date line because they are dated tomorrow.  It makes me think I'm looking into the future which we've all wanted to do.  Silly but true.
