After a real nightmare of 5 days in prison I’m finally safe at home, first of all I must thank God, my wife, all of my friends local media and family that really provided us with great help. I took me a lot of time to read all messages that were exchanged while I was in prison. Without the help of all of you I’d probably still be there, when the police officer said on Monday morning that I was free to go I couldn’t believe, the Brazil’s embassy said up to 3 months, the lawyer I got in Munich said at least a few weeks and my wife was informed up to 6 months, not to mention that I would probably stay even more time at Argentina.
Though the trial is not over yet, at least now I can stay home with my family, without the possibility of losing my job, and my wife will go to Argentina to defend me and do what else is needed. I was amazed at how much money was also raised in such short time. As some of you know the travel to the Color Management Hackfest was already a bit hard due to my bank issues but thankfully pretty much everything was already paid. So we will be using the collected money to pay lawyers and travel expenses to Argentina, I don’t know if that will be sufficient but it’s enough to start the process, if you didn’t had the change to donate and still would like to do, just send me an email and I tell the paypal account, this does quite a difference.
Next month is my wife’s, my son, then my own birthdays, so when I got arrested pretty much all I could think of was missing the 3rd birthday of my kid, really would be the worst holidays of my life since my daughter had died.
Being home now with my kid messing around is really priceless, really thank you all very much!
Sorry for my wife’s noise on the planet KDE but I think you all can understand how odd this situation was.
As for the geek stuff I’ll soon be pushing more code :)
