process of being deported.He has been charged with money laundering and criminal
copyright infringement.Vaulin made a purchase on iTunes and then immediately logged
onto the Kickass Torrents facebook page.Confirming that he is running KAT.The site
has stolen approx one billion in profits from the entertainment industry,according to
reports.Since the arrest,kickassTorrents site has been down and no word is yet out to
when it will be active again.
The Assistant Attorney General Leslie R.said on this achievement,
“In an effort to evade law enforcement, Vaulin allegedly relied on servers located
in countries around the world and moved his domains due to repeated seizures
and civil lawsuits. His arrest in Poland, however, demonstrates again that cyber
criminals can run, but they cannot hide from justice,”
