Posted 19/02/2019
With an Interpol red alert hanging over his head while he is out on a million dollar bail, Alberto Rica Martinelli Linares the eldest son of former president Ricardo Martinelli has flitted f the scene in Miami, Florida, he was provisionally apprehended, in last November, for being illegally in the USA.

The US Department of Homeland Security , through its  Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service (ICE),  known for its swift action in deporting illegal residents from less well-heeled backgrounds reported on November 20 that although Rica and his brother  Luis Enrique entered the country legally, "their visas they were revoked in 2017 and since then they have been illegally in the United States. " That day, the two Martinelli Linares brothers were arrested and sent to the Krome Detention Center in Miami.A judge granted them each $1 million bail and on December 7, they left their cells in  Krome for the family luxury mansion in Coral Gables, Miami.
