Holt was arrested after traveling to Venezuela in the summer of 2016 to marry a woman, a Venezuelan native, who he had met on a dating website.

"Joshua Holt and other US citizens are in danger", he added. They have been held in prison ever since. I am a political prisoner and they won't let me free.

A group of about 30 people, many of them family members of inmates considered by many to be political prisoners, gathered outside the jail to seek information about their loved ones as a number of videos and audio recordings from inside the jail flooded social media. They're outside, they're trying to break in. "They're trying to kill me".

Trujillo declined to discuss how Holt was posting videos on his Facebook page, saying Holt's safety was in jeopardy and he didn't want to release any information that may harm him.

"Please my fellow Americans don't allow me to continue suffering in Venezuela", Holt said in a written message, also posted on his Facebook page. I have been begging my government for two years. "And now my life is threatened", Holt said. They want to kill me and paint the walls with my blood.

A Utah man being held in a Venezuelan prison on Wednesday said he feared for his life as violence erupted there. "They won't give me a true trial", the message states. People here are dying we need help please send me help please send people to save me. His family has said he was in the wrong place at the wrong time of a raid in the Caracas neighborhood where his wife's family lives.
