In October 2014, it became public that on 10 September 2009, Dotcom had been caught driving at 149 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.
He pleaded guilty to a charge of dangerous driving, and on 14 September 2009, was convicted under his former name of Kim Schmitz.
He set up a network of interlinked companies, including Trendax, which he claimed was an artificial intelligence-driven hedge fund that delivered an annual return of at least 25%.
While living in Hong Kong, Dotcom visited New Zealand for 10 days in December 2008 and again for two months from August 2009.
He applied for residency and received it in November 2010.
Prior to his arrest in New Zealand, he enjoyed a luxurious lifestyle.
In 2001, his main source of income was a company called Kimvestor, which he valued at 200 million euros.
He was held in custody for a month, released and arrested again on additional hacking charges shortly afterwards.
He was eventually convicted of 11 counts of computer fraud, 10 counts of data espionage, and an assortment of other charges.
Dotcom also told Immigration New Zealand his convictions had been "erased" from his record under Germany's clean-slate legislation.
