Earlier this week, John McAfee, founder of popular anti-virus software, was arrested on an array of charges including tax evasion and endorsement of ICOs. The former presidential candidate was captured in Spain, awaiting his extradition to the United States. Amidst this, McAfee’s wife revealed that he was having a great time during his stay.
“Spanish Prison Is Not That Bad”
The business tycoon was on the run for a long time now and continued hiding from the IRS. McAfee was charged for concealing his tax liability as he steered his income that was to be paid into crypto exchange accounts as well as bank accounts. He carried all of this in the names of his nominees. As he was arrested in Spain, McAfee is mandated to spend his time in a Spanish prison until his extradition comes through. While going to jail can be horrifying for almost every individual, McAfee revealed that he was having a nice time.
Janice McAfee, the wife of John McAfee took to Twitter and revealed that he insisted on sharing a message with the community. Her tweet read,
“I was able to speak with John today. He is still in good spirits and wanted me to share this message with all of you.”
After being sued for illegally promoting ICOs by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the agency revealed that McAfee had made more than $23.1 million through the ICOs. People scammed by the business tycoon poured in comments on Janice McAfee’s tweet and suggested that he deserved to be in prison.
However, McAfee seemed to have a huge fan base as several were seen sending their condolences to his wife. While many asked what they could do to help, Janice McAfee said,
“There’s not much we can do right now, it’s up to the lawyers lawyering. We have a team of the best so I expect a good outcome.”
Furthermore, a tweet from John McAfee’s official account had also surfaced Twitter where McAfee went on to elaborate on his new friend.
