New Zealand Prime Minister ordered to investigate the “illegal spying” Kim Dotcom

The case is complicated in New Zealand. The country’s Prime Minister, John Key, ordered an investigation into allegations that the Office of Government Communications Security (GCSB) illegally spied founder.

Key said the agency’s efforts to intercept communications Dotcom were illegal, then they met the same recordings, which were obtained without permits or authorizations.

“I hope our intelligence agencies always operate within the law. Its operations depend on public confidence. I hope the Inspector General’s investigation gets to the heart of what happened and what can be done about it because this is also an issue for the Court’s consideration in MegaUpload case, “the Prime Minister said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Dotcom responded by saying that “now I’m a James Bond villain in real life political thriller written by Hollywood copyright and the White House.”

The authorities have been criticized for the manner in which they proceeded to the arrest of Dotcom and judgment below, for example, to televise the raid on his mansion with multiple helicopters and police cars surrounding the place.

In June even a New Zealand court held that the search warrants that were used to enter the house of Kim Dotcom were invalid.

Despite all this, Dotcom has apparently continued to work on their projects and assured that the new MegaUpload is “90% complete” .

is also working on a music service that will be available before the end of the year and would not operate in the United States.

MegaUpload was shut down in January, called the largest fraud case in the history of copyright. Dotcom is expected to be extradited to the United States in March 2013.
