President Central Bank walks away from deliberations
WILLEMSTAD – “I will not waste my time with this anymore” were the words of the President of the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten (CBCS) yesterday during the meeting between the member of the Supervisory Board and lawyers. Sources close to the CBCS confirmed this last night.
The meeting was a court mandated negotiation in which all parties were trying to find a solution to the impasse between the management of the bank and two members of the supervisory board. The two commissioners want an investigation into the integrity of the management of the Central Bank.
After the management of the bank has approved the investigation and paid an advance of 80,000 euros to the European investigators, there was a sudden change and the management prohibited the investigators to enter the bank.
This was the reason for the supervisory board to file a lawsuit, which took place yesterday. During the court case the judge ordered the parties to deal with this internally, which took place immediately. During the second round of negotiations, Tromp walked away and said that he will not waste his time anymore.
Today the judge will decide how to continue with this case.
