"I am in Guatemala and will be meeting with Guatemalan officials this morning. If all goes well I will do a press conference tomorrow.
"Vice Magazine reporters are indeed with me in Guatemala. Yesterday was chaotic due to the accidental release of my exact co-ordinates by an unseasoned technician at Vice headquarters. We made it to safety in spite of this handicap."
Vice Magazine followed up with a short piece about McAfee's escape to a fancy resort in Guatemala City, a piece about how McAfee and his 20-year-old Belizean girlfriend met with and hired a high-priced lawyer who he hopes will get him out this mess.
Update at 2:57 p.m. ET. McAfee Seeks Asylum:
The AFP reports that McAfee's attorney says he will seek asylum in Guatemala.
The AFP adds:
"'I have to manage his political asylum,' Guerra told AFP after meeting McAfee early Tuesday at a hotel in Guatemala City.
"McAfee 'is persecuted in Belize, persecuted politically because he stopped financing the government. They accuse him of a common crime. So what I have to obtain is an authorization of asylum,' the lawyer said."
