Swedish police dont have strong case against The Pirate Bay

Swedish police dont have strong case against The Pirate Bay Almost a year after the police raids on The Pirate Bay, Prosecutor Hakan Roswall decided to press charges against the admins of the popular torrent tracker site.
However, a new information leak clearly shows that the Swedish police have a weak case and have little to no evidence against the admins.

This morning, over 100 servers that were confiscated in the raids were finally returned to TBP even though the "offending data" had long been copied.

Mr Roswall has long tried to find something to use against the admins but it seem now they have little to nothing. "Brokep", and admin at TPB wrote this in his blog:

I talk to alot of people that are somehow connected to other interesting people - one of them told me that the police officer in charge of the case against The Pirate Bay actually has _nothing_ to give the District Attorney. Still hes pressing charges.


So far it seems the raid did nothing but bring huge media attention to the tracker and fuel its ego.
