Guatemala is looking to deport John McAfee back to Belize after he illegally entered the country

John McAfee seems as though he might be in a bit of trouble because of his decision to publicize his escape into Guatemala. The country is not happy with his illegal entry into the country and has detained him with the intent of expelling him back into Belize, where he is wanted as a person of interest in the murder of his neighbor.

"He entered the country illegally and we are going to seek his expulsion for this crime," Interior Minister Mauricio Lopez Bonilla said. Immediate deportation has been ruled out by the country and the police in Belize say that he isn't a prime suspect. His lawyer is seeking an injunction to get him released.

 

McAfee was seeking political asylum in Guatemala. He believes he is being persecuted by the ruling party since he refused to pay out $2 million to it. "The misunderstanding of the severity of their request for money was my big mistake," McAfee said. "Had I known that, I would maybe have said $2 million is way too much. Let's negotiate something, just don't rape me for the next seven months. Writing a check would have been a lot easier."
