Megaupload founder and piracy accused Kim Dotcom has asked a New Zealand court to allow him access to some of his seized assets to live on.

Dotcom said his family needed $180,000 dollars (R1.34 million), to cover the costs of living. This includes $24,000 (R179.234.22) per month for bodyguards and a similar amount for their staff.

Meanwhile the New Zealand government has, on behalf of the United States government, appealed a court’s decision to release Dotcom on bail, claiming he is a flight risk. He will know later today whether he will remain free on bail later today.

The extradition trail which may see Dotcom sent to the United States for prosecution is expected to begin in August later this year.
