To clarify, were you raided because you ran a Tor node or because your
IP address showed up in a website logfile (which was collected by the
police during their anti-child porn sweep)?

(since he may be too bussy to reply…)

My understanding is that he was raided this time because he is the
holder of wikileaks.de and wikilinks has copies of things like the
Australian censorship list (which includes things claimed to be child
porn). Not related to TOR.  But he was previously subject to a TOR
related taid.


Did your problems take place in Germany or in another country? Which, if it is not secret? How they explain their actions (juddiacally)? Is there the legislation persued persons for making tor servers in your country? Or thay only explain their actions as actions for fighting spreading childporn only? What are the judically causes for retention your computers for such long term?
Have you done any legal acts for returning your machines?
I think that if it take place in the state which is a member of the Council of Europe it is possible to bring an apeal to the European Court of Human Rights against the breaking by your state art. 1 Prot. 1 of European Convention for Protecting Human Rights. If you want I can examine a question about representing you at the above Court pro bono.
