New Zealand cops feared Kim Dotcom’s belly of mass destruction

Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom testified in a New Zealand court on Tuesday that police had punched him in the face and kicked him while he was lying on the ground during a raid on his mansion earlier this year. As reported by TorrentFreak, Dotcom testified that he had initially fled to a safe room within his house when police first entered his home but said that police had little trouble breaking into it. “And then they were all over me,” he said. “I had a punch to the face, boots kicking me down to the floor, a knee to the ribs. One man was standing on my hand.” TorrentFreak says that representatives from the New Zealand Special Tactics Group, the counterterrorism unit that conducted the raid on Dotcom’s house, will also testify about the raid sometime this week.
