  -> Thanks Mark :)

agree  Verginia Ophof: detained or retained ?
1 hr
  -> Thanks Verginia :) not sure about detained in this context

agree  Mario Freitas: Ginny, detained sounds more like the Pt cognate, but retained fits better into this context, IMO. A person is detained when they are arrested, isn't it?
3 hrs
  -> Valeu, Mario :)
