Lawyer: German journalist detained in Venezuela set free – Fox News


A human rights attorney says a German freelance journalist jailed in Venezuela since November as a suspected spy has been freed.

Carlos Correa of Public Space told The Associated Press on Friday that a court ordered the conditional release of journalist Billy Six. He had been charged with espionage — accusations his relatives rejected as trumped up.

Correa said Six has to report to the court every 15 days.

He said the journalist is banned from talking to the media, but he’s not being deported and can leave Venezuela if he chooses.

The release follows the arrest and deportation earlier this month of U.S. freelance journalist Cody Weddle.

Univision’s Jorge Ramos was also deported with his team in late February after President Nicolas Maduro abruptly ended an interview.
