McAfee returns to the US

John McAfee's legal situation has dramatically improved now that he has returned to the United States. As of the date of this blog, he is safer in the states than anywhere else. He fled Belize, snuck into Guatemala, and just came to the United States, after he was forcefully put on a U.S. bound flight by Guatemalan authorities. Belizean police still want to speak with McAfee about the murder of his American neighbor, Gregory Faull last month.

The key issue here is - does the U.S. have a MLA (Mutual Legal Assistance) treaty with Belize covering extraditions? And the answer is yes, Belize signed an extradition treaty with the U.S. in 2000. As with most treaties, there are exceptions to when a person is extraditable. This situation does not fit any of those exceptions. What is unique here, however, is that, at this time, McAfee is only a "person of interest" in Belize. No warrant has been issued yet in Belize. So, the discussion of extradition back to Belize is premature.
