Kim Dotcom in final bid to halt extradition

10 June 2019

Controversial internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom has begun a final appeal to halt his extradition from New Zealand to the US on copyright-related charges.

The FBI claims Mr Dotcom's Megaupload site earned millions of dollars by facilitating illegal file-sharing.

But his lawyers told New Zealand's Supreme Court on Monday it was never meant to encourage copyright breaches.

Mr Dotcom, who denies the charges, could face a lengthy jail term in the US if extradited and found guilty.
