Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom complains about women inmates’ lettersBy AP News Feb 03, 2012 1:54PM UTC
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — The jailed founder of the file-sharing website Megaupload is complaining that women inmates are giving him unwanted attention.
In a New Zealand courtroom to appeal a decision denying him bail, Kim Dotcom said he’s received unwanted letters from female prisoners and a phone call from a man posing as a prosecutor, according to reports by media outlets.
A government lawyer said during the hearing that a known forger tried to visit Dotcom.
Dotcom told the Auckland court he would not flee New Zealand and wants to fight to get back his money, some of which authorities seized last month.
U.S. authorities claim Megaupload facilitated millions of illegal downloads. They are trying to extradite Dotcom and three colleagues on racketeering charges.
