Cambodia to deport Pirate Bay founder

Cambodian deputy national police chief Sok Phal said the decision to expel Gottfrid Svartholm Warg came after visiting Swedish officials presented legal documents on the case against him today.
He and three Pirate Bay colleagues were sentenced to one year in prison in 2009 and ordered to pay 30 million kronor (€2.85m) to major entertainment companies for copyright violations.
Svartholm Warg failed to show up at an appeal hearing in 2010.
He was arrested last Thursday at the request of Swedish authorities at a home he had rented in Cambodian capital Phnom Penh.
