Take Away Team confiscates one more house and car
WILLEMSTAD – Early this morning the Take Away Team came into action again. This time in the luxurious neighborhood of Jan Sofat. Here the team confiscated a house and a car. The owner of the house was convicted in 2011 in the Netherlands in a drug related case.
According to a judge in Curaçao this man still owes 100,000 guilders to the State. This is the reason why the Public Prosecution ordered the Take Away Team to confiscate the possessions of this man and auction them. The proceeds will be donated to the fight against crime on the island.
