+ - Megaupload Boss Kim Dotcom Says New Zealand Police Beat Him->

Submitted by wiredmikey
wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Megaupload boss Kim Dotcom on Tuesday accused New Zealand police of kicking and punching him when they raided his Auckland mansion earlier this year to arrest him for alleged copyright piracy. Dotcom told the Auckland High Court he tried to surrender peacefully to police during the raid in January, when about 70 armed police cooperating with a major US online piracy probe raided the mansion.

"Then they were all over me, I had a punch to the face, I had boots kicking me down to the floor," he told the court, adding that one officer stood on his hand and another kneed him in the ribs. "I was screaming and I was in pain," he said.

Megaupload and related file-sharing sites were closed after the raid in January, part of an investigation US prosecutors have described as the world's largest copyright action."
