Sweden to extradite Pirate Bay co-founder to Denmark

Sweden to extradite Pirate Bay co-founder to Denmark

PanARMENIAN.Net - Sweden said Thursday, Nov 21, it will hand over one of the world's best-known computer hackers, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, to neighboring Denmark where he is wanted for questioning on alleged hacking charges, AFP reports.

"It (the extradition) will take place on November 27," the prosecutor in charge of the case, Henrik Olin, said, adding that Sweden was responding to an arrest warrant issued by Copenhagen.

In June, Danish police revealed that the 30-year-old Swedish hacker and co-founder of the file-sharing website, the Pirate Bay, is suspected of illegally downloading police files between April and August 2012.

At the time Svartholm Warg was living in Cambodia but was later arrested and deported to Sweden in connection with another cyber crime.

He is currently serving a one-year sentence in Sweden for hacking into the computer systems of contractors working for the national tax authority.

In 2009 he was convicted to one year in jail and ordered to pay criminal damages to the music and film industry for his part in founding the Pirate Bay website, one of the biggest file-sharing services in the world at the time.
