US Files Kim Dotcom Extradition Request

The U.S. filed its extradition request for Kim Dotcom and the other MegaUpload defendants on Friday in the North Shore District Court in Auckland. The deadline was March 5.

The court is not releasing the documents at this time. The hearing is August 20.

If you missed last week's TV3 News interview with Kim Dotcom in which he quite articulately explains why he's committed no crime (summary here), you can still view it online here.

    from his interview is that he chose New Zealand because it was a nice place to live and raise a family...not for any reasons related to avoiding extradition.
