US to share funds with Curaçao
WILLEMSTAD - Curaçao recorded another success in managing to take away funds from criminals. This yet even before the " Afpakteam Curacao” is operational. Authorities on Curaçao assisted the United States (USA) in a matter involving a Venezuelan drug trafficker who laundering proceeds through Puerto Rico. He was arrested in Colombia and extradited in 2010 to the United States. As a result, the United States is prepared to share $873,127.57 with Curaçao. This in accordance with the “asset sharing treaty” which exists between Curaçao and the USA.
The funds at the “Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section” (AFMLS) will be allocated on the account of the Fund for Combatting Crime which is administered by the Ministry of Justice of Curaçao.
