Freehub removal on Spox R2

I am attempting to repack my Spox R2 rear freehub body with new grease. I have the 12mm hex wrench inserted in the freehub holding-bolt , through the left (non-drive) side of the hub.

My question:
Which direction do I turn the screw to remove it - clockwise or counterclockwise?
Does the screw have standard, or left-handed threading?

I won't attempt this until I know for certain, since the screw is on pretty tight and I don't want to damage the hub.
Thanks for your assistance.

Can you remember how you remove this? Most sites talked about a 10mm allen hollow bolt on the drive side... but such bolt is not present in my Spox freehub... I do see what looks like a some bolt edges from the non-drive side... should I remove this? is it 12mm? what direction is loosey?
