Kim Dotcom has taken High Court action to stop his former
bodyguard from speaking publicly about goings-on in the
internet entrepreneur's personal life and business dealings.
Dotcom made a successful application for an interim
injunction against Wayne Tempero in the High Court at
Auckland yesterday. The action came soon after the Herald
reported that Tempero was set to release "secret
revelations"about Dotcom's "mindset and megalomania".
Tempero resigned from Dotcom's staff in October.
Yesterday Justice Sarah Katz granted an interim injunction
and ordered that Mr Tempero - and anyone else on his behalf -
was "restrained from using or disclosing to any person, firm,
corporation or entity, any confidential or trade information
acquired whilst working for Kim Dotcom".
The information included, but was not limited to, any
information acquired by Mr Tempero "about Kim Dotcom, his
role with Kim Dotcom, any information to do with providing
services to Kim Dotcom and any other information whatsoever
concerning Kim Dotcom, his businesses, his political party,
his music, his family and friends, and all images of Kim
Dotcom, his family and friends at any time".
The order also prohibits Mr Tempero from disclosing computer
Mr Tempero was also ordered not to disclose any information
about Dotcom's wife Mona's business or his other companies
including Megaupload and Megastuff.
