He asserted that the government of Belize is rife with corruption, executions, bribery and extortion. He said police there want him back because he has become an embarrassment to Belize. He said police have raided his Belize property eight times.
"The reason I avoided the authorities is I believed then and I believe even stronger now ... the intent to question me has nothing to do with Mr. Faull's murder,'' he said. "I cannot ever return to Belize. The issues I'm discussing are hurting the government, hurting tourism.''
"The government was mad at me before,'' he said. "There is no hope for my life if I ever return to Belize.''
McAfee supposedly moved to Belize to avoid paying U.S. taxes. I guess he now wishes that he had just sucked it up and paid the taxes.

Commenter HAR says:
McAfee appears to still be a US citizen, so he still had to pay federal income tax. Maybe in Belize he could avoid property and state taxes, but there are US states you can move to that don't have income tax. It's more likely that he moved to Belize so he could have a harem of hookers and be somewhere where he could feel like a big man.
In that case, I guess the reason for McAfee's move to Belize is a mystery.
