Pirate Bay’s Peter Sunde Arrested

Co-founder of Pirate Bay Peter Sunde has been arrested this weekend. He was wanted by Interpol for two years over his involvement in the site.

The arrest comes on the eighth anniversary of the infamous raid on Pirate Bay’s servers.

Sunde was sentenced to eight months in 2012 for copyright infringement and has been living in Berlin but occasionally traveled to Sweden to visit family. He was arrested in the southern Swedish county of Skane, near Malmo.

“We have been looking for him since 2012,” said Carolina Ekeus, a spokeswoman from the Swedish National Police Board in a statement. “He was given eight months in jail so he has to serve his sentence.”

Ekeus provided no other update.
