CTB Director on mandatory leave

ghatimWILLEMSTAD – The board of the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) has sent Director Ghatim Kabbara on a mandatory vacation. Hugo Clarinda assumes his duties until the issue is clear.

It is unclear why the board has taken this drastic measure against the tourism director. Outgoing Minister of Economic Development, Steven Martina, said yesterday during the weekly press conference of the Council of Ministers that there are tensions within CTB, but this decision to send the director on mandatory leave has been done without his knowledge.

“This action is primarily a responsibility of the board,” Martina said. The Minister did not want to comment any further on the decision. Kabbara was not unavailable for comment.
