Canadian Man Indicted for Felony Fraud in Costa Rica Wanted by Interpol


On the 8th of June, 2010, the criminal court of Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica ordered the arrest and subsequent international arrest warrant for Bruno Saligari of Prince George, British Columbia, Canada.

The arrest warrant with corresponding extradition order is to be served using Interpol with the cooperation of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in Canada.

44 year old Bruno Saligari has been indicted on felony fraud and is wanted in Costa Rica by authorities to face trial. The Interpol notice level for Bruno Saligari is classified as a “Red Notice” due in part to the extradition order from Canada to Costa Rica. Notices are not actual arrest warrants however they are used to assist the national police forces in identifying or locating those persons with a view to their arrest and extradition. Red notices allow the warrant to be circulated worldwide with the request that the wanted person be arrested with a view to extradition.

The co-accused in this matter, also formerly from Prince George, Sarah Alice Western, has been located and injunctions placed upon her. Currently Sarah Western awaits trial in Costa Rica and is not permitted, by order of the court, to leave the country.

Interpol and the RCMP would appreciate the assistance of the public in locating Bruno Saligari. So if you know any information on where Bruno Saligari is, please contact the local RCMP detachment in your area.
