FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
30 May 2017
In accordance with his previous statement on this matter, Kim Dotcom’s solicitors in New Zealand have today sent the following letter to Robert Mueller, Special Counsel appointed to investigate interference with the 2016 United States presidential election and related matters:
30 May 2017
Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Attention: Robert Mueller, Special Counsel
INVESTIGATION INTO INTERFERENCE WITH THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND RELATED MATTERS
1. We act for Kim Dotcom in New Zealand.
2. We are writing to you in your capacity as special counsel appointed to carry out the above investigation pursuant to Order 3915-2017 (Investigation).
3. Mr Dotcom has evidence that he considers relevant to the Investigation. The purpose of this letter is to confirm that, subject to appropriate arrangements being made and his constitutional rights being preserved, Mr Dotcom is willing to provide this evidence to the Investigation. He has instructed us to make this approach to initiate the necessary dialogue as to the required arrangements.
4. As you may be aware, Mr Dotcom resides in New Zealand. Since 2012, the United States has been seeking his extradition to face a criminal prosecution arising from his involvement in the Megaupload group of companies. Presently, Mr Dotcom is on bail while he exercises (as he is entitled to) his rights under New Zealand law to resist extradition. Mr Dotcom emphatically denies the alleged offending and is committed to defending the allegations in the extradition proceeding in New Zealand.
5. Mr Dotcom is also committed to achieving an outcome where his evidence can be properly received and reviewed by you as part of the Investigation. You will, however, appreciate that, given his current status, he is not in a position to voluntarily leave New Zealand’s jurisdiction. Further, he is concerned that, should he travel to the United States voluntarily, he would be arrested and detained in custody on the current counts on which he has been indicted.
6. Accordingly, for Mr Dotcom to attend in person in the United States to make a statement, and/or give oral evidence at any subsequent hearing, special arrangements would need to be discussed and agreed between all relevant parties. Such arrangements would need to include arrangements for his safe passage from New Zealand and return. This is because Mr Dotcom is determined to clear his name in New Zealand.
7. Mr Dotcom invites the Department of Justice to contact him through counsel to progress the taking of his evidence once you have had an opportunity to consider this letter and are in a position to discuss the required process and appropriate safeguards.
8. We look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, or require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

New Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno says that, although he considers WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange a “hacker,” he will allow him to remain in his country’s London embassy.
Copenhagen’s famous ‘Little Mermaid’ statue has been vandalized by animal rights activists calling on Denmark to put an end to the slaughter of pilot whales in the Faroe Islands.
The bronze statue, which sits on a rock by the waterside at Copenhagen’s Langelinie promenade, was spray-painted red on Tuesday.
Those behind the act made their motivation clear, leaving a spray-painted message on the pavement in front of the monument.
“Danmark [sic], defend the whales of the Faroe Islands,” the message stated.
Copenhagen police acknowledged the incident on Twitter, stating: “The Little Mermaid was targeted by vandalism. We are on the case,” as translated by the Local.
Denmark has long been pressured by animal activists to put an end to a practice known as Grindadráp, or Grind, in the Faroe Islands. Pilot whales are led into a bay or fjord where they are then killed by hand. The meat and blubber are then distributed to residents.
Earlier this month, Sea Shepherd Netherlands submitted a request to the European Commission to launch “infringement proceedings” against Denmark. It alleged that Danish police, naval, and customs officials have been “facilitating and even actively participating in the Grind,” which violates the EU’s Habitats Directive on the Conservation of Natural Habitats and of Wild Fauna and Flora.
It added that “the government of Denmark has shown it’s willing to do whatever it can to ensure that the slaughter continues.”
The head of Copenhagen’s famous Little Mermaid has turned up, three days after being sawn off by radical feminists.
The bronze head was delivered to a Danish television station on Friday by a hooded man.
A freelance cameraman who got a tip-off about the statue’s decapitation before dawn on Tuesday was also informed of the return and was on the scene to film the mysterious man dropping it off at TV2 in Copenhagen.
No arrests have been made but police say they are examining the head for fingerprints and forensic evidence.
The statue, which is based on a Hans Christian Andersen tale, draws about a million visitors a year to the harbourside park in Copenhagen where it normally sits looking out to sea.
Danes consider it as much a national symbol as the Eiffel Tower is to the French or Big Ben to the British.
When told of the head’s return, Copenhagen’s chief architect Otto Kaeszner said: “That’s great . We’ll save lots of money.”
He said a new head would have cost about 80,000 kroner ($14,000).
The Little Mermaid, erected in 1913, had its head sawn off once before in 1964.
The head was never found and was replaced with another which was modelled on the original.
No-one was arrested on that occasion, although several people including a radical artist have claimed responsibility.
One of the statue’s arms was also cut off in 1983.
The Radical Feminist Fraction, a previously unheard of group which claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s vandalism, said they had done it to highlight men’s fixation with women’s bodies.
They said they wanted to “create a symbol of sexually-fixated and misogynist male dream of women as bodies without heads”.
But Danish police are not convinced that the claim is genuine and they are still investigating the incident.
Mike Cernovich is over the target as it pertains to the political assassination of Seth Rich, and that’s great – but we would like to see him spill the beans regarding the FULL TRUTH about the 9/11 false flag operation. It is our job in the “alt media” to inform the world about who the REAL ENEMIES of humanity are. Thanks for tuning in.
