Megaupload Founder Has Been DENIED Bail

gty_kim_dotcom_2_dm_120123_sshThe NEW ZEALAND judge dealing with Kim Dotcom’s case has denied him bail.

Judge David McNaughton issued his ruling on Wednesday morning local time and said that it was “due to the risk Mr. Dotcom would flee jurisdiction and the possibility that if he reached Germany he wouldn’t be extradited to face the charges.”

He will  remain in jail as he awaits extradition to the U.S.

A decision on the fate of his colleagues has yet to be made.

However, Mr. McNaughton said at Mr. Dotcom’s bail hearing Monday that his decision on their fate would depend on that of Mr. Dotcom.

A hearing on extradition is expected to take “many months,” Mr. McNaughton said.
