Extradition Trial For Kim Dotcom Pushed Back Again
from the stalling,-stalling dept
It’s not entirely clear why this is happening, but it appears that the hearings concerning Kim Dotcom’s extradition have been postponed yet again (apparently for the 4th time). It mostly seems to have to do with this whole issue of getting access to the evidence against him, which the US has been fighting.
His extradition hearing has already been delayed several times due to legal action relating to an illegal raid on his home and disclosure of evidence relating to his case.
A hearing in August has now been put off until April next year.
But a tentative date has been set for November, just in case a final ruling on whether his lawyers should have access to evidence, is quickly made.
Either way, it seems like this case may drag on for quite a while.
