- A remarkable morning with Van Raak (SP) / Bosman (VVD) vs. Curacao
THE HAGUE – The National Conference will this week the Inter-Parliamentary Consultation Kingdom (IPKO) instead.MPs from other countries of the empire where the sun never sets – Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten – consult a few days with their colleagues from the First – and Second Chamber. One of the topics Wednesday on the agenda was’ administrative integrity.
Murder, corruption and the Mafia SP MP Ronald van Raak and his VVD colleague André Bosman have been for some time the pebble in the shoe include the (illegal) gambling industry in particular, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. Some of the politics in the West is much welcomes the two. The situation on Curaçao is therefore to say the least worrisome. Thus, since the death of Helmin Wiels, the sentencing of former Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte and influence of mafia boss Francesco Corallo.
Last week it was announced that more than 400 illegal gambling sites operate from Curacao. The Curaçao telecommunications company UTS facilitates this. And books are UTS in turn audited by KPMG. To make matters even more complicated: UTS is the government of the island but also has minority shareholders who blocked an earlier examination of Audit of Curacao (ARC). In a similar situation was a cabinet three times already fallen in the Netherlands, Curacao is different.
“I Curacao need the help of the States’
Socializing in the Hofstad so. Van Raak told his colleagues that integrity is inextricably linked to the following rules and the importance of parliamentary scrutiny. Touch of referring to the murder of Wiels, the former prime minister in prison and a seemingly free loot income gambling industry: “I need the assistance of the States (parliament BP) of Curaçao.”
According to the Curaçao States President Marcolino ‘Mike’ Franco UTS is a NV from the government. ” Against Van Raak: “I would like to say that we can help you but I can not.”
VVD André Bosman said there were problems in the West with scrutiny by the press and parliament. Bosman: “We do not know exactly what is happening. Thus you become like government very vulnerable. Netherlands does have checks and balances. ”
“Mexico polder version ‘
That was against the sore spot of States member Glenn Sulvaran. In a muddled speech he stated that the Netherlands champion in international drug trafficking, “Mexico polder version ‘and he also recited some statements by former Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende on the’ VOC ‘mentality. To conclude with a hearty:
“If it would change the behavior of the European snuff there was no crime in the islands.”
- “This classic Do-bin is significant”
Van Raak welcomed:”I’m happy for two reasons. When things are bad in the Kingdom, we need each other there is indeed speak on “but”. This classic you-bak is telling. The shirking of responsibility. “According to Van Raak closing some of the States the eyes to the abuses on the island and” they continue to prefer to sit in the dark. “”We have to interfere with it because some States members are not doing it and looking away.”come clean?
Delegation and Senator Ruard Ganzevoort (GL) then emphasized “together make clean ‘interest. Staten Elmer Wilsoe seemed finally the voice of reason:
“We must extend the hand and solve this together. We at UTS and at KPMG in the Netherlands. ”
Well spoken. Until I went googling who Wilsoe is. Wilsoe wrote as justice minister under the now convicted so Schotte a personal letter to Hillary Clinton to pry Robbie dos Santos to frozen funds $ 27 million in the US. Lottery King Dos Santos was sentenced this year to two years probation and picked for 35 million euros
