Attempts to get rid of CTB chief

Ghatim KabbaraWILLEMSTAD – Our news partner Notisia360 reports that it has information from a credible source that there are attempts behind the curtain to get rid of Ghatim Kabarra, Director of the Curacao Tourism Bureau (CTB). Kabarra apparently already knows about these attempts. The source explains that those behind these attempts are key players in the tourism sector, especially in the hotel business.

They are not happy with the priorities set by the CTB policy. Furthermore, they don’t think that CTB should focus on the European market, especially the Netherlands.

According to the sources, the situation will completely get out hand in the coming days. Meanwhile the employees at the bureau were notified that they should be prepared to take action in this case. Since CTB is a foundation, the Government is not allowed to intervene with the membership. Only if members voluntarily resign, then the Government can appoint someone in their place. CTB’s management is now headed by Tarzeno “Zeno” Circkens.
