Pirate Bay’s co-founder in Solitary

Vice Mag has the details, but the short of it is that Gottfrid Svartholm is being held in solitary – not for his avoiding a 1 year sentence for running the Pirate Bay – but for hacking. Seems the Swedish authorities are convinced that if he were held in a regular holding cell he would be able to hack his way into their evidence and make alterations. Given that his two co-accuseds are now out awaiting trial it seems unreasonable that he’s the one they should panic about.

Its been about 6 weeks for Gottfrid with no indication as to when the confinement will end.
