More than six months after the New Zealand police and the FBI raided the mansion of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, a video of the event has been released to the public and it includes helicopters, armed officers, dog units and multiple police vehicles – Hollywood style.
New Zealand 3News' "Campbell Live" showed footage captured from the onboard cameras of helicopters involved in the raid.Kim Dotcom began giving evidence in the Auckland High Court yesterday at the start of a three day hearing into what happened during the January raid on his New Zealand mansion.
The Megaupload founder described how he heard stones being kicked up onto his bedroom window by helicopters, later revealed to be carrying officers from the Special Tactics Group, New Zealand’s elite anti-terror force.
This overwhelming display of force, only added to the huge controversy surrounding the dramatic Megaupload takedown, but until now has only been described in words. Today that changed.
Now, and apparently, the operation has now been ruled illegal and the hearing this week will determine what will happen to the computers, hard drives, luxury cars and art work seized during the raid.
