Van Raak wants clarification on links with mafia

THE HAGUE - The Political party SP wants clarification from Minister Liesbeth Spies of Kingdom Relations on possible links between former Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte of Curaçao and the Sicilian Mafia. SP member of parliament Ronald van Raak said Tuesday in the 2nd chamber of the Dutch parliament that he had a whole series of confidential letters derived from the Italian Ministry of the Interior.

According to Van Raak it appears from the correspondence that the then Minister Piet Hein Donner (predecessor of Spies) since May 2011 is aware of the links between Schotte and the Sicilian Mafia boss Francesco Corallo. Besides the Italian nationality Corallo also has a Dutch passport.
