Guatemala judge orders to free McAfee, lawyer says

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

A lawyer for John McAfee said that a judge has ordered the software company founder released from a Guatemalan detention center where he has been fighting being returned to Belize.

Attorney Telesforo Guerra said the judge notified him verbally of the ruling, but added that it might take a day for formal written notification to win McAfee's release, possibly as soon as today.

Guerra said Secaida ruled that McAfee's detention was illegal, ordered him released, and gave him 10 days to put his immigration situation in order.
