Now it has been revealed Neij (TiAMO), Sunde (brokep) and Svartholm (Anakata) will be serving their sentences in three separate ‘Category 2′ prisons.
“We have three levels of security and we have put them in institutions with normal security,” Helena Lundberg, Chief Officer of Probation, told DN.
Fredrik Neij will spend 10 months in Kirseberg prison in Malmö, Sweden. The prison first came into operation during 1914 and has a capacity of 131 inmates and around 170 staff.
Former Pirate Bay spokesman Peter Sunde has been told he will spend his 8 month sentence in Västervik Norra. Converted from a hospital over the last 7 years, this facility has 262 inmates and 250 staff.
Gottfrid Svartholm will spend 1 year in Mariefred prison roughly 65 km from Stockholm. Built in 1958, it has a capacity of 112 inmates and 90 staff. Having previously spent time in Cambodia, Svartholm’s current location is unknown prompting speculation from Peter Sunde that he may even be dead.
In addition to their jail sentences, all four convicted individuals are liable to pay their share of 46 million kronor ($6.78m) in damages. While the authorities have managed to find 225,000 kronor ($33,149) of Lundström’s money, investigations have turned up nothing in the names of Neij, Sunde and Svartholm.
The promise all along from the trio was that no matter what happened to them, two things would happen. First, that Hollywood and IFPI wouldn’t get a penny and second, The Pirate Bay would keep on going regardless.
Jail sentences aside, it looks like mission accomplished.
