Kim Dotcom And The GCSB's Illegal Spying: Court Documents

Kim Dotcom And The GCSB's Illegal Spying: Court Files

Full court documents relating to surveillance of Kim Dotcom and others by the New Zealand GCSB, conducted prior to the police raid on Dotcom's home, part of international action to shut down Dotcom's Megaupload website.

As Dotcom, Bram van der Kolk, their families were NZ residents, GCSB involvement was illegal. This was admitted when the affair was made public in September 2012.

Earlier summaries of some of the affidavit information are available on Scoop. See Dotcom Affidavits: GCSB, Police And 7-Month Coverup and Kim Dotcom Illegal Surveillance And Response: Timeline.
