    Hacker who avoided extradition requests return of seized computers

    A computer activist who successfully resisted attempts to extradite him to the US over alleged hacking has applied for the return of his confiscated computers, after the National Crime Agency confirmed he is still under investigation.

    Lauri Love, 34, requested several computers and the data on them be handed back.

    His equipment was taken when he was first arrested under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 by the NCA at his home in Suffolk in 2013.

    He has continued to protest his innocence and has not been charged.

    Love applied at Hendon magistrates court in north London for his possessions to be returned.

    Love’s move to recover his computers follows a failed attempt last year to extradite him to the US to face prosecution for allegedly breaking into government agencies such as the Federal Reserve, the army, the US Department of Defense, Nasa and the FBI in a spate of online attacks in 2012 and 2013.
