    Alleged Anonymous hacker, deported to U.S. after Canada refused to grant him asylum

    Matt DeHart, the alleged Anonymous hacker, deported to U.S. after Canada refused to grant him asylum

    Peter J. Thompson/National PostMatthew DeHart in April 2014. The former U.S. airman and alleged Anonymous hacker, who has been diagnosed with PTSD, was refused refugee status in Canada.


    Matt DeHart, a former American soldier who sought asylum in Canada claiming torture by U.S. agents probing Anonymous hackers and WikiLeaks, was taken from his Ontario prison cell Sunday morning and delivered to U.S. agents at the border.

    Mr. DeHart, 30, was allowed to make a quick phone call en route to his parents, who are living in Toronto facing their own removal order, said his father, Paul.

    “He was peaceful and in good health,” Paul DeHart said in an interview but the family remains deeply worried.


    “We are concerned about Matt’s safety as he transits,” he said. “We said a prayer together on the phone and gave him into God’s hands for protection.”


    His claim for refugee protection in Canada, on the basis of his torture claim, was rejected last month by the Immigration and Refugee Board.


    “I cannot imagine any life in a country which has already tortured me,” he told the National Post last month. “Am I now to be given into the hands of my torturers?”


    His is a bizarre, high-profile case, featured in a large investigation by the Post in May. It has since been featured in international media, including recent pieces by Germany’s Der Spiegel and Al Jazeera America.

    Mr. DeHart fled to Canada with his parents ahead of a criminal trial on child pornography charges that he insists were laid by authorities as leverage to further a national espionage and national security probe.


    Mr. DeHart says the pornography charges are a ruse to investigate an espionage and national security probe tied to his involvement in Anonymous and his operation of a “hidden” Internet server used to leak a classified U.S. government document, likely destined to WikiLeaks, the whistle-blowing organization.


    A Post investigation revealed many problems with the evidence in the pornography case and confirmed the FBI interrogated him on espionage and security matters several times while he was in custody under unusual circumstances.

    Philip Cheung for National PostPeople rally outside the United States Consulate General in Toronto to support Matt DeHart, a former U.S. airman seeking asylum in Canada.
    In it’s decision on his asylum claim, the IRB raised similar concerns, saying there are enough questions about the case “to cast sufficient doubt on the credibility” of the government’s case and found no “credible or trustworthy evidence” he committed child pornography offences.

    However, his claim for protection was not accepted because the IRB said the United States “has a fair and independent judicial process” where he can fight his criminal charges and press his civil rights complaint.


    Paul DeHart said he does not expect to be in direct contact with his son again for several weeks now he is back in U.S. custody.

    Last time he was arrested by U.S. authorities at the border, he was incarcerated without a timely court appearance or speaking with a lawyer. In that time, the FBI interrogated him several times, but not about child pornography, documents show.

    “He has publicity now so maybe he will transit without incident,” said Paul DeHart.


    Tor Ekeland, his New York lawyer, said despite legal requests, Canadian officials would not say which border crossing Mr. DeHart was being taken to.


    “We wanted to have a lawyer present,” Mr. Ekeland said. “We’ll be doing our best to find him.” He said since Mr. DeHart’s allegations of torture came after his detention by border guards, this is concerning.


    Mr. DeHart is expected to end up in one of four county jails in either Tennessee or Kentucky, where inmates awaiting trial in the district where he was charged usually are housed.


    The CBSA could not immediately be reached for comment or confirmation.


    Paul DeHart, and his wife, Leann, are finalizing their own departure plans after also being refused asylum in Canada.

    “The panel acknowledges that this particular claim is by no means a simple one,” wrote IRB adjudicator Patrick Roche on the DeHart family’s refugee claim.


    “The principal claimant is alleging that he is being persecuted by the government of the United States, or agents of that government, for his perceived political beliefs as a hacker and whistleblower involved in leaking sensitive government information,” wrote Mr. Roche. “He alleges that he has been falsely accused of crimes in order to keep him incarcerated and he alleges that he had been drugged and subjected to interrogations without his constitutional rights.”


    Despite evidence of the U.S. government’s harsh treatment of computer hackers, Mr. Roche found American justice could be trusted to deal with Mr. DeHart’s case.

    Deric Lostutter, ‘KYAnonymous’ hacker, incarcerated early for violating court-imposed conditions


    The hacker collective Anonymous. (YouTube) more >

    By Andrew Blake - The Washington Times - Thursday, April 13, 2017

    A convicted computer hacker was taken into federal custody nearly two months earlier than expected Thursday after a judge determined he violated the conditions of his post-sentencing release with an online photo of him giving the middle finger.


    Deric Lostutter
    , 29, was remanded to U.S. marshals during a hearing in federal court Thursday after U.S. District Judge Danny Reeve found the convicted computer hacker had violated a condition of release that prohibited him from directly or indirectly accessing the internet, The Lexington Herald-Leader reported.


    Lostutter
    had been scheduled to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on or before May 8 to begin serving a two-year prison sentence for his involvement in a hacking campaign that targeted the administrator of a website dedicated to the Steubenville High School football team in Steubenville, Ohio.


    But Lostutter’s wife posted a photo on social media earlier this month of her husband giving the middle finger, the Herald-Leader reported. Assistant U.S. Attorney Neeraj Gupta argued that the conduct violated the conditions of Lostutter’s pre-incarceration release, and the hacker was handcuffed and hauled away during a Thursday hearing in Lexington federal court after Judge Reeve agreed, the newspaper reported.

    The posts violated an order last year that prohibited Lostutter from using any electronic device except to contact his attorney, probation office or immediate family, according to the newspaper.


    Lostutter
    intended to push the limits of the order “as far as he could,” the judge said.


    Using the alias “KYAnonymous,” the Kentucky native admitted helping another hacker crack into the website and leak stolen data, all the while engaging in what prosecutors portrayed as a campaign of intimidation and harassment. Despite initially pleading not guilty, he ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of computer fraud and a related charge last year.

    Lostutter
    said he had participated in the hacking campaign beginning in late 2012 in order to raise awareness of sexual assault allegations involving two Steubenville High athletes, Ma’lik Richmond and Trent Mays.


    Lostutter
    and other self-described hacktivists associated with the Anonymous movement spent months drawing attention to the case, and both students were ultimately tried and convicted of rape.
