She believed Dotcom?s claims that his involvement with the Internet Mana party would eventually relieve the family of his threat of extradition, she said.

?At the end I was fine with it because Kim explained to me how this Internet Party would benefit us and the kids because it would help him with his political issues,? she said.

– Auckland now


Kim Dotcom is denying he launched the Internet Party to help avoid extradition.

The internet millionaire says it’s his way of repaying the public for the support he received after the raid on his Auckland mansion in 2012.

“There’s a lot of speculation about why I created the party and it’s going in a bad direction – everyone is thinking it’s about my extradition,” he said when Laila Harre was named as the party’s leader on Thursday.

“That’s absolutely not true.”

She is also denying her attempt to return to Parliament is to block Mr Dotcom’s extradition to the United States.

“That is not something that has ever been discussed and if it had been discussed I wouldn’t be sitting here today,” says Ms Harre.
