Guatemalan judge orders McAfee released from detention

A Guatemalan judge has reportedly ordered the release of John McAfee, after ruling the anti-virus pioneer turned Belizean manhunt target was being detained illegally.....

McAfee was detained last week after slipping over the border to Guatemala from neighbouring Belize. In the three weeks prior to that McAfee and his girlfriend had been on the run, trying to avoid the attentions of police in Belize who want to question him as a person of interest in the November 11 murder of McAfee's neighbour, Gregory Faull. McAfee is not a suspect in the murder.

Some of us have been following the developments in this unusual case.

I thought those of you you insisted he was 'due' for this might be a bit miffed...

But it is evident that there are more than a few people who see things differently.

Another source with some extra info:

John McAfee to Be Released, Accuses Vice Magazine of Involvement in His Arrest

he John McAfee story continues with more “drama.” According to a post published on his blog, the antivirus software pioneer will be released from detention after a Guatemalan judge has determined that his arrest was illegal.

Furthermore, his representatives believe that he will be allowed to return to the US as he wanted.

However, there’s another twist to the story. Now, McAfee believes that Vice Magazine – the publication that he allowed to document his life on the run – might have had some involvement in his arrest.

It's a cool story, that will end up as an edgy oliver stonesque film me thinks.
