McAfee says he has left Belize but is still on run

Software company founder John McAfee says he has left Belize and is still on the run.

He says on his blog “we are not in Belize, but not quite out of the woods yet”.

The latest chapter in the saga of the eccentric anti- virus company founder featured weekend rumours that he had been caught.

Police in the Central American nation have denied he was captured.

In a blog, McAfee claimed that “my ‘double,’ carrying a North Korean passport under my name, was in fact detained in Mexico for pre-planned misbehaviour“.

It was a turn typical of the bizarre saga of the eccentric anti-virus company founder wanted for questioning in connection with the killing of a fellow American ex-pat.
