Interpol Costa Rica Online Poker

Indicted officials working for PokerStars and UB.com living and working in Costa Rica will not have to worry about being detained by Interpol. 

Both companies have offices there.  Another of the three online poker companies indicted on Friday, Full Tilt Poker, does not maintain a presence in the Web gambling hub nation.

Interpol in Costa Rica told InsideCostaRica.com that even if they are able to locate the suspects, they cannot detain them.  That is the job of local law enforcement. 

The Deputy Director of the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) - Judicial Investigation Organization - Francisco Segura said he was unaware of any warrants in connection with the case, but noted he would act accordingly once informed of their existence. 

The three companies are charged with money laundering and bank fraud. 

While PokerStars operated an office in the Central American nation, the executives charged in connection with this investigation are believed to reside elsewhere, possibly in Israel or The Isle of Man.
