Statement of Francesco Corallo

Further to a recent series of news articles in local and Dutch press with regards to information pertaining to Francesco Corallo and requested by Prime Minister Schotte of Curacao from the Italian Minister of Interior Affairs Mr. Corallo wishes to comment as follows:

It does not do justice to the many excellent diplomats in our country when a representative of the diplomatic corps issues reports to Kingdom governments that are based on chicken chatter or talk from imaginary employees of the Italian government.

It would be more just and fair, instead of me denying the news as reported by the various media houses myself, to have the honorable Stoelinga reiterate himself that from official sources such as the Chief of Cabinet of both the Italian Ministry of Interior Affairs and Foreign Affairs, it shows that – then Italian citizen – Francesco Corallo has a clean record with both Ministries.And even if one can understand this story in the context of a heated political climate, it is however utmost surprising that media houses report such blatantly false information and such with scrutiny.I enclose the official statement of the Italian Government of 3 August 2011 only correctly forwarded by his Excellency the Ambassador in Italy later that month.

I reserve the right to sue the authors of these publications according to the law.

Francesco Corallo
Dutch citizen
