On the same day as the Swepiracy bust, the police in the Gothenburg region made a search against a person suspect of extensive illegal file sharing on Pirate Bay and Shareitall. Rights Alliance filed the police complaint. Rights Alliance have collected evidence against the suspect on several separate occasions. The suspect was very active and responsible for a number of Swedish and foreign movies being made available through the Pirate Bay.
