German journalist Billy Six, detained by Venezuelan intelligence services four months ago, was freed yesterday in Caracas. He has been asked to report to the court every 15 days.
Six was arrested in northern Falcon state for allegedly photographing President Nicolas Maduro very closely. According to the German embassy, Six went on hunger strike in December and also published a letter claiming he had been denied the right to defence and basic medical information regarding his illness.
The German journalist was in the country to investigate drug trafficking, smuggling and human trafficking and the exodus of Venezuelans due to the economic crisis.
