Cambodia To Extradite Gottfrid Svartholm 126

judgecorp writes "The Cambodian authorities have said they will extradite Gottfrid Svartholm who is wanted in Sweden for his part in founding file sharing site The Pirate Bay. As there is no extradition treaty between Sweden and Cambodia, Svartholm is being extradited under immigration law, so it is not yet clear whether he will actually be sent to Sweden."

    I think that it is quite clear by now that the laws don't really matter in cases like this. The MAFIAA will get him one way or another.

    Deport and Extradite are not the same thing.

    Deport - Kick out of the country and we don't care where you go

    Extradite - Hand over to the authorities of another country which which you have an extradition treaty.
    TFA says Deport .. TFS says Extradite. Sheesh .. I'd be embarrassed if I was paying for access to this site.

    Of course, they don't want to scare him off. They will promptly post them once he sets his foot on Swedish soil.

    I seriously hope that when this doesn't happen you will wake up and realize you are completely out of touch with reality. Do you realize you just completely made that up based on purse speculation? Why would you think he'd be extradited to the US, if none of the other pirate bay people were?

This process can check if this value is zero, and if it is, it does something child-like. -- Forbes Burkowski, CS 454, University of Washington
