One of the co-founders of Facebook is on the run after going public with claims that the CIA were involved with the creation of the social media site.
Paul Ceglia, 43, disappeared while under house arrest and claimed that the CIA have tried to kill him.
He went on the run with his wife Lasia, two teen sons and their dog, Buddy.
In 2012, Mr Ceglia said he owned 84 per cent of Facebook per an alleged 2003 contract with Mark Zuckerberg. In 2012 he was charged with altering documents to bolster his claim.
On March 5th, police officers entered his home in Wellsville, New York, to find his ankle bracelet connected to a device that was designed to make it look like he was walking around his home.
Writing in a series of emails to Bloomberg, Mr Ceglia said that if he had stayed he would be considered a ‘very credible’ threat and would therefore be arrested on new charges, jailed and killed – and had to escape before that happened.
Furthermore, Mr Ceglia added that the reason for the supposed plot against his life is that his fraud trial might have revealed the involvement of the CIA’s venture capital arm, In-Q-Tel, in Facebook.
He added that he felt there was no-one in government that he could trust.
Responding to his claims, one of Ceglia’s lawyers working on his criminal case, Robert Ross Fogg, said he is ‘relieved’ to discover that Ceglia is safe and well, and disappeared under his own volition.
He also urged him to return home and claimed there was probable cause for Ceglia’s contract claims.
