John McAfee on a plane to America

'Officers are here with guns and I must leave'

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Antiviral fugitive John McAfee is on his way to the USA, after Guatemala booted him out.

McAfee's blog features an audio interview he gave to Bloomberg in which he says he has been forced to apologise to the President of Guatemala, as his arrival in the nation coincided with negotiations of a treaty with Belize, the nation he fled.

Guatemala has booted him out, he added, and made it plain he has no alternative but to board a plane to Miami.

The interview concludes with McAfee saying 'Officers are here with guns and I must leave'. The brutes have even made him fly American.

McAfee has since blogged from the plane.

That's good news for McAfee, who wasn't keen on chatting to Belize's authorities. But it's bad news for his friends and family, who remain in the Caribbean nation. Whether Belize will attempt to extradite McAfee remains unknown. ®
