Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, a co-founder of download haven The Pirate Bay, is back in Sweden - and now faces allegations of playing a role in an attack on the country's taxmen and IT consultancy biz Logica.

Warg was holed up in Cambodia when he was arrested on an international warrant obtained by Swedish officials and flown home after he failed to return to Sweden to start a one-year prison term. He was sentenced in April 2009 for being an accessory to breaching copyright laws.

It has now emerged, however, that Warg - who didn't appear at a September 2010 appeal hearing against his conviction due to apparent ill health - was also deported from Cambodia after being deemed a possible suspect in the hacking of websites in Sweden.

The Swedish prosecutor's office said in a statement (Swedish) on its website today that Warg was under preliminary investigation for his alleged involvement in the hacking of Logica and the country's tax board.

The TPB man was cuffed on 30 August in Cambodia and then returned to Sweden, prosecutors said. He will be held in custody until 14 September. ®
