Algeria/Mali/Germany: freed hostages told not to sell their stories

Freed German hostages have been told not to sell their stories to the media. If they do, the German government could claim the money and put it towards the rescue costs!
Under the German consul law, the government can ask the victims of kidnappings and other misfortunes to cover some of the costs involved in rescuing them.
Here is the last post about the hostages.

By the way ... it appears Libya paid the ranson for the hostages.
