STOCKHOLM (AP) — A Swede who is in prison for involvement with file-sharing site Pirate Bay has been found guilty of fraud, hacking into Sweden's tax authority and a bank, and the attempted illegal transfer of money between accounts in Europe.
The Nacka District Court in Stockholm on Thursday gave Gottfrid Svartholm Warg a two-year prison sentence, and also found another Swede, Mathias Gustafsson, guilty of hacking and placed him on probation. It was not immediately clear if they will appeal.
In 2009, Svartholm Warg and three Pirate Bay colleagues were given one-year sentences for copyright violation. He appealed but left the country. He was arrested in Cambodia and repatriated last year.
Svartholm Warg is also wanted in Denmark where is suspected of hacking to access sensitive information from the Danish police.
