Arrest for tax system hack?

There have been some rumors floating around about the reason for Anakata's arrest. One was for his outstanding warrant for the Pirate Bay trial, the second was involvement in Wikileaks and now a third one has started to gain momentum. The rumor is that Anakata was arrested for his involvement in an attack on Logica, the company that handles a lot of the IT systems for the Swedish tax office.

Earlier reported on this rumor, citing unknown sources, and now Torrentfreak is also reporting on it.

To sum it up, it appears that Swedish authorities may suspect that Anakata was involved in a long-running breach of security at Logica, essentially granting several others, including a former member of Piratbyrån, the group that founded The Pirate Bay, access to confidential personal information of thousands of Swedish tax-payers.
