Megaupload boss Kim DotcomNew Zealand's High Court has ruled that the police raid on Kim Dotcom’s house was unlawful along with seizure of the hard drives that were later cloned and illegally taken from New Zealand to the US by the FBI.

­The warrants issued to search Dotcom’s mansion were general and did not clearly describe the offences they stipulated, ruled Justice Helen Winkelmann.

The New Zealand police force is currently holding talks with the Crown Law on the next course of action and has refrained from commenting on the judgment.

An independent lawyer has now been assigned to check the seized material to decide what is relevant to investigation and what is not. The relevant articles will later be handed over to the American authorities, while those items seized unlawfully will be returned to Dotcom.
