One of The Pirate Bay founders, Gottfrid Svartholm, 28, has recently sent an open letter to the Danish Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Interior to plead his innocence. It is known that in Denmark, Gottfrid is accused of hacking, which resulted in downloading such secret files as police records. Back in September, the Swedish Court of Appeal cleared Gottfrid of a similar hack, and he believes that this could help him get cleared of the Danish charges as well.
In the mid-September, The Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Svartholm had his hacking sentence cut twice – from 2 to 1 year in prison. While the Court of Appeal upheld the ruling in the hacking of IT company Logica, it at the same time overturned the ruling handed down in respect of the breach at the Nordea bank.
According to the new verdict, Gottfrid Svartholm will be free in just 4 months. But soon after that the Denmark authorities announced they are going to move forward with his extradition for a separate hacking case. Denmark accuses Gottfrid of downloading sensitive files like police records, from the mainframe of IT company CSC. The authorities have successfully requested his extradition earlier in 2013 when they described the hack in question as similar to the Nordea one in Sweden. But now, despite those similarities and Gottfrid’s acquittal on the Nordea hack, the country still continues its case against Svartholm.
The decision to extradite him was based on a treaty between the Nordic countries, where Sweden trusts the Danish legal system and vice versa. But Gottfrid doubts that this was still the case. He apologized that his machine was used for the CSC hack, but claims that this wasn’t his wrongdoing. Indeed, the machine was positioned as the one available to other people, both physically and through the web, which was confirmed by the Swedish Svea Court of Appeal. The latter also admitted that the computer’s firewall was configured in such a way that its integrity could no longer be guaranteed. As a result, its remote control could be done in several ways.
The Pirate Bay founder explained that he cannot be held responsible for what the investigators found on his machine. To avoid wasting time and resources, he thinks that the Danish prosecution should drop the case.
For the industry observers, it looks as if the Danish police and the Danish prosecution service don’t trust the Swedish courts. Still, so far there’s no sign that the Swedish appeal verdict will change the position of the Danish prosecution.
