One week after Kim Dotcom unveiled "Me.ga," the domain for his new file sharing service to replace Megaupload, the government of Gabon in Africa announced that it would suspend the site immediately. At the same time, a group called Omega that opposes Dotcom has seemingly taken over the domain and has it redirecting to its Twitter feed.
The nation of Gabon in Central Africa controls the .ga Internet domains, and doesn't want Dotcom using one of them as a "platform or screen for committing acts aimed at violating copyrights."
"I have instructed my departments... to immediately suspend the site www.me.ga," said Communication Minister Blaise Louembe, according to the AFP French news agency.
