OM will be more active in collecting fines
WILLEMSTAD - The Public Prosecutor (OM) Curaçao will be more active in collecting fines. The OM will be present, especially during traffic checkpoints of the police. The pilot project on Good Friday was a success and it offered more opportunities for the public prosecutor to digitally check if there are unpaid fines.
In 2014, a total of 949,779 guilders in fines were cashed by the Public Prosecutor. In 2013 it was 1,466,200 guilders.
Figures show that more than 16,000 motorists in Curaçao still have an outstanding fine that they received between November 2011 and March 2015. More than 8,000 drivers have two or more outstanding fines.
Do you have any outstanding fines? Then you are advised to pay the fine or to make a payment arrangement. You can contact the OM during office hours in the Temple in Punda.
