Within a week of the GSU raid on my jungle property, the harassment began. First there was an attempt to charge me with running an antibiotics laboratory without a license. In Belize a special government permit is required to research antibiotics – a law which is common in Third World countries. To date, no such permits have ever been issued. I suspect the large drug conglomerates have much to do with these widespread laws, or perhaps it’s a viewpoint motivated by my latent paranoia. In any case, I didn’t have such a permit. Neither was I researching or producing antibiotics. Antibiotics are taken systemically. I was working on a topical antibacterial spray. It could in no way be classified as an antibiotic. After a week or so of play in the press the government abandoned its attempt to charge me under the “antibiotic crime laws”.
The government then switched tactics. A week after the antibiotics scandal was dropped, a new charge was leveled: The security company that I had formed to provide security at my residence possessed most of the weapons licenses used for said security. Unaccountably the physical records for that company disappeared from government files and re-appeared without my name appearing anywhere on the records. This would mean that said weapons, being in my possession at the time of the raid, and me not being a director of the company, were held illegally by myself. An automatic ten years in prison would be the result. Fortunately, my property manager had kept the original documents and drove with them to Belmopan – the seat of government – and presented the documents. The government again backed down.
Next, a week or so later, there was talk of charging me with hiring security guards without a license. Every lawyer I talked to shook their head at their own ignorance. None of them had heard of, or could find, such a law. This issue was mulled over by the government’s prosecutor for quite a while before it faded away.
The list goes on with boring precision. The government has not returned any of my property as of this date. All requests, through lawyers, through the U.S. Embassy and through myself, have been met with the same reply: “We have not concluded our investigation” .
Seven months seems a long time to investigate a non-existent meth lab.
Three of my friends are still being held in prison on trumped up charges. They are:
They were charged and have been imprisoned because three legally licensed firearms were found in the incorrect rooms on my property (stretching the law to the extreme). I would ask you to please email the following and demand their release:

According to Robert Frank (author of ‘Who Repo’d My Jet’ and CNBC Wealth reporter) the reason for going to Belize was to research and find vaccines from nature (p. 121), just as Big Pharma does. Are you inspired by Craig Ventner? Probably better to just research the cold pressed extractions of plants (essential oil – but less profit in it than drugs) or focus on energy production from biofuels like algae etcetera. Good luck anyways. My guess after a few minutes of realizing you’re probably innocent and the government wants you alive rather than dead or incarcerated is that perhaps a Big Pharma company got wind of you about to compete against one of their top selling antibiotics or vaccines and wanted to buy you out but you refused. Said company then pressues leader & gets GSU on you. Who knows, just a wild theory ;-p

John how can I email you directly? I need to speak with you.
Are you able to email me at the address I provided to comment here?

Not all antibiotics are taken systematically, some topical ones exist and are used (whether that’s useful or not is another matter). A 15 seconds search on Google leads to a 2008 study about them, among many other material: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18564249

If something does not exist, looking for it for seven months or seven years is not going to matter. It still won’t exist.

Hey John … I cannot believe I came across your site while researching your plight. I am sure you will end up seeing what I have built at JohnMcAfeeStory.com
Your blog has already inspired me to remove the shotgun pose I had on the front page of my site. I have also just added a post for your site and will keep it on there for as long as you are able to keep posting your side of the story. I am completely convinced of your innocence in the murder you have been accused of.
John, I am pulling for you to get through this safely … stay strong, wish I could help more.
Todd from Toronto Canada.

Besides the 3 things you say the government has attempted to find you guilty of, operating an unlicensed antibiotics lab, storing guns registered to a company you were not a director of, and hiring security guards without a license, list other things the government has tried to charge you with to support your theory the government is conspiring to have you jailed or deported.

I think it is all starting to unravel John. It seems pretty clear that the lab work you were doing on bacteria was part of your work on MDPV (know as bath salts), a sex drug you have been using and trying to improve upon per your many posts over at Bluelight http://www.bluelight.ru/vb/threads/541627-Hello-and-an-MDPV-Question

Is there anything that government wanted you to cooperate with before these events? Were they hoping to collaborate with you and your vast network or were they merely trying to extort you?

Do you believe the only cause of this harassment was a financial one? Were you being coerced for specific sums of money? I read that you made large contributions to Belize including a coast guard boat?
