Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Svartholm was arrested by Cambodian police on Thursday in Phnom Penh, the city that he made his home several years ago.
According to local sources he was arrested in an apartment above the Cadillac Bar on the riverfront, a place where he is known to have stayed in the past.

The 27-year-old became wanted internationally after he failed to return to Sweden to serve his 12 month jail sentence earlier this year.
