LF have learned that the New Zealand police have arrested Auckland law student and cyber activist Ben Rachinger following his online admissions surrounding the Raw-shark hack of Kiwi Blogger Cameron Slater’s computer systems and social media accounts. Rachinger is a law student at an Auckland University and is allegedly close to Lynn Prentice and various other players at Labour party rag the Standard. Mr Rachinger has apparently already been released from police custody.

LF first suspected that police had moved when Rachinger’s twitter account was suddenly removed earlier today. LF will bring readers more as detail become available.
