McAfee said he contacted National Security Minister to prevent dispute

John McAfee

The estate of the founder of McAfee Antivirus and investor, John McAfee was busted by GSU earlier this week. Sixty-six year old McAfee has been living in Belize for some time now in Orange Walk town and claims that he has been politically victimized. This further led to a GSU raid on Labor Day this past Tuesday which has emotionally shook the philanthropist who has given millions in kind to various government departments, NGOs and the community. In the process of the raid at his research facility near Tower Hill, one of his thirteen dogs was killed, his passport confiscated and everyone on the compound—including McAfee—handcuffed for fourteen hours. The philanthropist says the raid was as a result of him refusing financial support of an Orange Walk politician who lost in the General Elections.  According to McAfee, in anticipation that something like this would have happened, he attempted to contact the Minister of National Security three weeks ago, but to no avail. And now he hopes that the minister would finally get in contact with him.


John McAfee, Philanthropist

“I attempted to reach Mister Saldivar, the Minister of National Security on six different occasions. He did not return a single phone call, neither did his secretary—which as a last resort, I tried to reach him through his secretary. I sent him a text saying Mister Saldivar it is urgent that I speak to you. He did not respond. He is a member of the same party that was slighted by my refusal to donate. So this is astonishing too; the Minister of National Security. And I was going by to meet with him anyways—I would with any new minister just out of courtesy. I am a foreign citizen in this country; I want to meet the minister to let them know I am here if I can help in any way, hello, goodbye, whatever. It’s just politeness. He refused to respond to my phone calls, to give me an appointment to meet him or in any way to talk to him. And this was three weeks prior to this event that I was trying to reach Mister Saldivar. So Mister Saldivar, please would you call me now?”

    If this man is an honest person then he should make sure that he know the laws when it comes to hire security guard. What he need to do is to have his place inspected every three months and give an update to his formation police OC as to how much guns, amount of ammo and the persons who is working for him. On the other hand there is only one compol so he should be informed of all operations if that can not be done then something is wrong. We need to treat people with respect and conduct search in an appropriate manner if they destroy property then they pay for the repairs.

    All that glitter is not gold … these white pipl come to Belize and all of a sudden we must bow down? Oh please! Let’s see how many of you would stand behind him after you find out the real deal about this man … I hope Minister Saldivar does not give him the time of the day!

    I just read that stuff and still don’t see anything… I think this guy is guilty of having a really bad hair cut.

    When I first saw the article I figured nothing weird about having a security force when 30 miles to the west is Cartel Kingdom and 50 miles to the north is Cartel World who are kidnapping poor Central American migrants much less a wealthy and famous individual. Barry Bowen had a private security force when he was alive and so does the Mennonites at Spanish lookout, so this is not strange at all.

    I thought maybe this is all about corporate espionage which is big, big, big business, if he is looking for the female Viagra then it is not far fetch to believe that his competitors would pay to have a look at what is going on in the lab. I am sure a video tape of the raid exists and I am sure recipes etc… from the lab were video taped etc…

    All just a guess on my part but it does not make sense that a tactical unit would go in and all they come out with is an unlicensed gun (which is questionable), failure of two of the security guards to be licensed and possible antibiotics…
