Ricardo Alberto and Luis Enrique Martinelli Linares, sons of former Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli (2009-2014), no longer appear on the list of detainees by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service (ICE) of the United States.
As Efe was able to verify after a search in the locator of this federal agency, both no longer appear as admitted to the immigration detention center of Krome, in south Miami, where they remained after being detained on November 20.
Last Tuesday, Immigration Judge Adam Opaciuch granted each one bail for $ 1 million in the case that is followed by their presence "illegal" in the country and also set a new hearing for December 27.
The system confirms the audience for that day, and also reports that it will be in Miami and not in Krome, where they had their first view on December 4.
The two sons of the Panamanian ex -mandante, who were arrested in Coral Gables (Florida), entered the country legally, but the government canceled their visas in 2017 and since then "they stayed illegally" in the United States, according to ICE.
Last May, the Foreign Ministry of Panama formally requested that the United States extradite Martinelli's two children for alleged involvement with the bribes of Odebrecht.
Ricardo Alberto and Luis Enrique Martinelli Linares are among the 63 people prosecuted in Panama for the Odebrecht case, which reached an agreement with the Panamanian Prosecutor's Office that includes the payment of a fine of 220 million dollars and the file of the case against the construction company in this Central American country.
The sons of the former president have denied their link with the irregularities of the Brazilian company.
His father, Ricardo Martinelli, obtained a partial victory on Friday after the Supreme Court of his country declared himself incompetent to try him for alleged political espionage and refer the case to an ordinary court.
