Portrait Session with MEGA Limited Executives

Kim Dotcom Promises $5 Million Bounty to Whistleblowers

Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom is offering $5 million to anyone who can provide evidence of a conspiracy between the US Government and Hollywood to shut down his file-sharing service in 2012. Dotcom is currently facing extradition from New Zealand to the US, where he would face charges of racketeering, money laundering, and copyright theft, potentially leading to a 20-year jail sentence. These charges, according to Dotcom, are part of a “corrupt contract prosecution” in which the US Government agreed to take down Megaupload in exchange for Hollywood’s support of Obama’s re-election.

Dotcom claimed that he has been unfairly denied access to the evidence used to convict him, and that he has been denied a chance to see his own confiscated data. He explained to TorrentFreak that he is “asking for information that proves unlawful or corrupt conduct by the US government, the New Zealand government, spy agencies, law enforcement and Hollywood.” In order to protect anyone willing to share such information, he “would also guarantee any whistleblower coming forward would have the best legal representation at zero cost.” Despite the looming threat of extradition, Dotcom is confident that “in the end we shall be victorious and we shall expose those who have abused their power.”
