Mr McAfee, 67, has refused routine questioning after his neighbour Gregory Viant Faull, 52, was shot dead in his beachside villa on Ambergris Caye, an island off the Belize coast, at the weekend.

The businessman, who is constantly changing locations and telephones, has denied involvement in the killing. He claims the Belize police are corrupt and want to frame him, extort money, or kill him.

Dean Barrow, the prime minister, has now expressed doubts about Mr McAfee's mental state, saying: "I don't want to be unkind to the gentleman, but I believe he is extremely paranoid, even bonkers.
