Pirate Bay Founder Arrest Related To Tax Hack, Not Piracy

Last week police arrested Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid Svartholm in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh.

Initially little was known about the reasons for the arrest, but after a few days the authorities confirmed that Sweden was the driving force behind the actions. According to a spokesperson for the Cambodian police, Svartholm’s detainment is connected to alleged cyber-crimes.

“His arrest was made at the request of the Swedish government for a crime related to information technology,” he said.

Following this statement it was assumed that “information technology” referred to Svartholm’s involvement with The Pirate Bay. However, several sources now dispute this and say that Svartholm’s arrest is related to a hacking operation that may date back to 2010.

The hack targeted Swedish IT company Logica, which supplies services to the Swedish tax office. Earlier this year the hack made the headlines when the tax numbers of 9,000 Swedes leaked online.
