They say they didn't do it.
If they didn't, it looks like they are implicated in the hack.

Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, co-founder of the Pirate Bay, has been sentenced to two years in a Swedish prison for hacking into a bank's computers.

A Swedish court found Warg guilty of the hack attacks and associated charges of fraud.

The attacks were carried out against the Nordea banking group and services firm Logica.

Personal data about thousands of Swedes was stolen in the attacks and was subsequently published online.Pirate Bay Founder Jailed Over Bank Hacking [bbc.co.uk]
