I have to congratulate John for making it safely out of Belize and into Guatemala. Kudos for meeting up with a big gun like Telésforo Guerra … this guy is the real deal. He is the Lawyer who represented former Guatemalan President Alfonso Portillo in a huge embezzlement case where Portillo and two of his aides were charged with corruption and the embezzlement of $15 million in government funds. … and go figure, he’s the former Attorney General of Guatemala that just happens to be Sam’s uncle … giddy up Cowboys!
I was watching the latest broadcast from Martin Savidge on CNN. He was crying about how his laptop and iPhone were stolen, when really I think he was upset that he never broke the story of John’s capture. I wonder if he was leaking GPS data like VICE did. Anyhow CNN is reporting that John’s lawyer is planning to file a formal request for asylum with Guatemalan officials Wednesday.
