Its good to see he has actually been tried at last after a long time on remand.

Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid Warg has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison for hacking into computers and illegally downloading files.  Prosecutors said it was the "largest hacking case to date".
He and a co-defendant were convicted of breaking into computers owned by technology services giant CSC by a Danish court. They downloaded police and social security files from the computers.
Soon after the sentence was announced, lawyers representing Mr Warg said they would launch an appeal. Warg's accomplice was given a six-month jail sentence but walked free from the court, having served 17 months in pre-trial detention.
The initial hack attack took place in February 2012 and gave the pair access to the sensitive information, including social security numbers and police records, for about six months.

The authorities have been rather paranoid in this particular case, while on remand Gottfried has been kept in isolation, a "luxury" normally reserved for murderers and terrorists etc, it seems someone in authority is perhaps scared of what he has to say and wants him kept out of the public gaze. The reason given for the hack was to check on claims of corruption in the police force and after the pirate bay case some years ago where the police drew pay from two masters at once (the Swedish govt and Hollywood company warner) in clear conflict of interest, one could suspect he was perhaps successful in this aim, given the way he is charged with new offences each time he is about to be freed.
