Sealand Offers Asylum To UFO Hacker Gary McKinnon

Posted by l33tdawg  - 03:16 AM (Reads: 223)

Gary Mckinnon, who faces extradition to the US for allegedly
hacking into military computers, has been offered asylum by the
self-styled breakaway state of Sealand, it was claimed at the
Infosec security conference today.

The 'State', a World War II fort known as Roughs Tower in the
North Sea just north of the Thames, was declared an independent
principality in 1967 by a former major called Paddy Roy Bates.
He dubbed himself Prince Roy.

Mckinnon sat on a 'hackers panel' at Infosec to debate new
changes to the Computer Misuse Act.

The claim about Sealand was made by one of his fellow
panellists, a "security analyst" identified only as Mark.
