MegaUpload Founder Posts Bail, Twitter Reaction

    February 22, 2012

Kim Dotcom, founder of MegaUpload, was released from jail today on bond, after a New Zealand court deemed that he wasn’t a flight risk. Though the NZ Crown might appeal the decision to set Dotcom free for the time being, it had been deemed that it is unlikely that he would be able to access the funds to flee the country. Kim was quoted as saying, “I just want to go home.”

“I’m relieved to go home and see my family, my three little kids and my pregnant wife,” he added, according to Stuff NZ.
