|Megaupload boss Kim Dotcom on Wednesday offered to voluntarily leave New Zealand for the United States if prosecutors agree to release funds to bankroll his defence against online piracy charges.
True to form, the Internet businessman made the proposal on his Twitter feed, which has attracted around 90,000 followers since he began using the micro-blogging website less than a month ago.
'Hey DOJ (Department of Justice), we will go to the US,' he tweeted. 'No need for extradition. We want bail, funds unfrozen for lawyers and living expenses.' 'They will never agree to this and that is because they can't win this case and they know that already,' he told the newspaper.
New Zealand's High Court last month ruled the raid on Dotcom's mansion was illegal as the search warrants that police used were too broad, further complicating the legal case.
