OPEN DOORS PLEASE

November 27, 2013

By Ulla Danielsen
The extradited Swedish superhacker Gottfrid Svartholm Warg is going to be heard in a preliminary hearing on November 28 at the court in Frederiksberg, a municipality in the midst of the Danish capital Copenhagen.
This according to Danish tv-channel TV2, that reported about the case on November 21.
Gottfrid Svartholm Warg is the one of two young men suspected of a gigantic hacking-attack towards CSC, the US it-company that handles public Danish data and registers. The other suspect is a 20 year old it-consultant.
The 20 year old was heard in a preliminary hearing earlier in 2013 and afterwards held in custody. However it is uncertain whether he is still detained.
When Gottfrid Svartholm Warg Thursday is going to be heard, the counsel for the prosecution, represented by Dorit Borgaard has already stated, that she will ask the judge for the hearing to be held behind closed doors.
However, several arguments speak in favour of open doors:
Around four million Danes have had their personal identification numbers (cpr-numbers) hacked. They have a right to know what is going on in this huge hacking-case.
Furthermore the Danes are being digitalized almost by force these years. So why shouldn’t they be allowed to know, when those in charge handle their personal data negligently?
It would also be considerate towards the suspected Swedish hacker to allow open doors at the preliminary hearing:
According to ComputerWorld Gottfrid Svartholm Warg fears for his own security. At the same time he is too scared to name the person or persons he fears.
Finally the suspected superhacker Gottfrid Svartholm Warg claims, that Danish police ignores an important money-trail in the case of public Danish data hacked from CSC.
It might be of interest to some.
