A few hours ago, Spain’s Supreme Court ordered the 75 – year – old to be deported to the United States. There, the British-American programmer is charged with tax crimes. McCaffy was arrested at Barcelona airport in 2020. At the inquest, McAfee said the allegations against him were politically motivated.
