Luis Enrique “Kike” Martinelli Linares one -of the  fugitive sons of ex-president Ricardo Martinelli-  who has paid bonds totaling $7 million to avoid being, arrested  has asked for authorization to return to  Panama  on a “humanitarian” flight, in a private jet  the day after having entered two bonds - one for $ 2 million and the other for $5 million - as part of the investigations in the Odebrecht and Blue Apple cases

Luis Eduardo Camacho González, a lawyer for Martinelli Linares, and long time spokesman for the ex-president a sent a note on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, to Foreign Minister Alejandro Ferrer, stating that his client, "who currently has a release bond," requests to return to Panama in a private flight that would land in Albrook, Scarlet Martínez de Río Hato airport "or any Panamanian airport today".

Camacho said that his client is traveling with his wife Marelisa Garuz Adames and their two minor daughters.

The family will travel on the plane with the registration N362XP, on behalf of Overseas Transcom Corp. In., A company incorporated in Delaware, United States, but which operates charter flights from Jacksonville, Florida reports La Prensa,

The lawyer claims humanitarian and legal reasons. "Due to the world situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, they could not remain in the country they were in, so it is necessary to return to their country with their family since their bail has been duly recorded in their respective courts, ”says Camacho.

The same day, June 23, the director of International Legal Affairs and Treaties of the Chancellery, Vladimir Franco, answered the note and replied that the attorney must address his request to the Ministry of Health since that is the entity that authorizes or denies the entry into the country of each humanitarian flight.

"In the event that the humanitarian flight is authorized, it will be subject to verification and compliance with the health and safety protocols approved by the corresponding authorities," Franco said.

The whereabouts of Luis Enrique Martinelli is currently unknown, although in November 2018 he was detained with his brother, Ricardo Alberto Rica Martinelli Linares, in Miami, Florida where both were released on bail.

The authorities then reported that they did not have a visa to stay in the United States. The Panamanian Foreign Ministry requested the extradition of both brothers to answer for the Blue Apple and Odebrecht cases.
