Sweden Paid $60 Millions to Cambodia for TPB Founder

Since Gottfrid Svartholm’s arrest in Cambodian city Phnom Penh, there were many rumors that either the United States or Sweden had something to do with this. However, there were no proofs. Now it seems the rumors were true.

If you didn’t follow the news, there’s a synopsis: one of The Pirate Bay founders, Gottfrid Svartholm, was recently arrested in Phnom Penh. Previously, he was sentenced in Sweden to spend a year in prison, and a $1.1 million fine, because of his ties with the most popular BitTorrent tracker worldwide. Last week a meeting between National Deputy Police Commissioner General Sok Phal and Swedish authorities took place, where Gottfrid’s fate was decided – he was to be deported, despite the fact that there was no extradition treaty signed between Sweden and Cambodia.

At the same time, a senior Cambodian official claimed that Sweden made a very expensive gift to the country ($59.4 million) in “financial aid”. According to the official statements, the money will be used for developing democracy, education, and so on.

During the signing ceremony which hosted Prime Minister Keat Chhon and Swedish Ambassador, the former said that Cambodia considered Sweden as an important development partner and would make its best to make sure that the financial aid be used effectively.

At first it was unclear whether the TPB’s founder was arrested because of his connections with BitTorrent tracker or not, but now it was announced that his arrest related to tax hack directed against Logica carried out a couple years ago. The representatives of the Cambodian police confirmed that Gottfrid’s arrest was made at the request of Sweden for a crime connected with information technology.

In the meantime, Gottfrid is kept in a Cambodian detention cell, awaiting deportation.
