Mismanagement at Curaçao House worse than thought
WILLEMSTAD – From the most recent investigation of the Government Accountants Bureau (SOAB) on behalf of Prime Minister Bernhard Whiteman, it appears that the mismanagement at the Curaçao House, which is the island’s representation in The Hague, is much worse that had been assumed until now.
This is according to credible sources to the Dutch newspaper Antilliaans Dagblad. The report has been in the possession of the Prime Minister for some time now, but the results have not yet been published. According to the investigation of the SOAB, the mismanagement of the Minister Plenipotentiary Marvelyne Wiels brings major financial risks for Curaçao.
It can also be harmful, according to the report, for the reputation of the country.
The investigation also concluded that much expertise has been lost due to the reorganization of the Curaçao House. According to SOAB, an external audit will provide a complete picture of the financial situation. The financial records are not in order and amounts are missing.
