President Central Bank warns: “Stop with defamation!”
WILLEMSTAD – During the press conference of the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten (CBCS), the President of the bank Emsley Tromp had a message for the Netherlands; “If Holland breaks it, it owns it.” This means that if the Netherlands is guilty of breaking the confidence in the CBCS and its President, they will have to pay for the crisis.
Tromp reacted yesterday to the articles that appeared in the “Financieele Dagblad” (Financial Journal) in the Netherlands. The Dutch newspaper wrote of a possible financial mismanagement by Tromp with two apartments in Miami, a questionable relation between Tromp and the convicted banker John Deuss and also between Tromp and Hushang Ansary. According to the newspaper, Ansary has used millions of dollars of the insurance company ENNIA for his own activities.
Tromp explained yesterday that he did not do anything wrong. “All these accusations are fabricated. Their only intention is to break my position.” Tromp then went on to attack one of the members of the supervisory board who supposedly “went to the Netherlands to create uncertainty around my person and my management.”
“All I can conclude is that there is a campaign coming from the supervisory board to cause financial instability in our country,” said Tromp.
According to Tromp there are now calls for the Dutch government to intervene. “We have a Dutch politician in our supervisory board, but apparently that is not enough.
