Pirate Bay Founder Arrest Related To Tax Hack

Apparently this idiot didn't learn his lesson after his last brush with the law. You'd think that a year in jail (which he hasn't served) and a $1.1 million fine would be an incentive to stay out of trouble. confused

The arrest of Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid Svartholm last week resulted in much speculation about the motives and forces driving the action. In most scenarios it was assumed that Svartholm was arrested for his role in The Pirate Bay, but this turns out to be untrue. Sources confirmed to TorrentFreak that Svartholm is being held at the interior ministry’s counter terrorism department in connection with the alleged hacking of a Swedish IT company and the subsequent leak of thousands of tax numbers.
