In one of the biggest bombshell moments of this generation thus far – and there’s been no shortage of them overall – a catastrophic leak saw dozens of work-in-progress GTA 6 videos and screenshots emerge online. Now the accused perpetrator of that crime, 18-year-old Arion Kurtaj, has been deemed “unfit to stand trial” following an assessment by psychiatrists. As a result, Reuters reports that a jury will now need to determine whether he committed the acts, as opposed to delivering a more traditional guilty or not guilty verdict.
Kurtaj is in trouble for much more than holding Rockstar to ransom, and is also accused of hacking taxi app Uber, computer chip manufacturer NVidia, and financial tech firm Revolut, as well as blackmailing mobile networks BT and EE. In total, he faces a terrifying 12 charges, including three counts of blackmail, two counts of fraud, and six charges under the Computer Misuse Act. Meanwhile, a second unnamed 17-year-old accomplice faces two counts of blackmail, two counts of fraud, and three charges under the Computer Misuse Act. Yikes!
