John McAfeeMakes Statement

Illness a ‘ruse’

13 Dec, 2012

McAfee says he faked the illness in order to buy some time for a judge to hear his case and stay his deportation to Belize.

It was a deception but who did it hurt? I look pretty healthy, don’t I?

When asked whether he believes Belize officials were inept.

I was on the run with a 20-year-old girl for three and a half weeks inside their borders and everyone was looking for me, and they did not catch me. I escaped, was captured and they tried to send me back. Now I’m sitting in Miami. There had to be some ineptness.

McAfee also answers critics who called his adventures a publicity stunt:

What’s a better story, millionaire mad man on the run. You [the media] saved my ass. Because you paid attention to the story. As long as you are reporting, it is hard to whack somebody that the world is watching.
