Just one day after he was hospitalised, John McAfee has posted further data in his fight against the government of Belize.
The McAfee founder reportedly left the hospital one day after being admitted for what was said to be heart problems. While early reports suggested that McAfee suffered a heart attack while in a Guatemala jail, McAfee's lawyers on Friday said that he was back in detention after being treated for chest pains.
McAfee is currently being held in Guatemala over charges of illegally entering the country. He is awaiting extradition to Belize, where authorities are hoping to question him over the murder of a neighbour.
The move marks the latest turn in what has become a surreal case involving McAfee and government agencies in Belize. Shortly after authorities disclosed the murder of Gregory Faull, McAfee announced on his personal site that he had gone into hiding for fear of his own safety.
While authorities have said that they hope to question McAfee in the case, no arrest warrant has been filed and he has not been formally charged.
McAfee has had a long-running feud with authorities in the Central American nation. Earlier this year his home was raided by police, though no charges stemmed from the incident. McAfee has claimed that authorities are trying to set him up to cover a corruption case.
Shortly after word surfaced of McAfee's release from the hospital, his personal site posted the first in what was promised to be a series of recordings outlining corruption within the Belize government and a plot by local officials and former employees targetting McAfee.
