FAS to discuss with OM on how to proceed with court ruling mismanagement public companies

Oil RefineryWILLEMSTAD - Ruben Suriel of the Civil Action Foundation (FAS) had mixed feelings about the court’s decision to confirm that there was indeed mismanagement at the two public companies Aqualectra (utility company) and Curaçao Refinery (owner of the refinery facilities). The Court of Justice confirmed that there was mismanagement during the term of the government headed by Gerrit Schotte (2010 – 2012)

Suriel now has one question; “What now?”

“The only thing we have heard in the Court’s decision was that the three entities responsible for these two companies, the General Shareholders’ Meeting, the Supervisory Board and the Management Team are responsible for this mismanagement,” said Suriel. The General Shareholders’ Meeting represents the Prime Minister of Curaçao who is politically responsible for these two companies.

The Public Prosecution (OM) wants to act against those who are responsible but the Court did not make a decision on this. The judge indicated that this is an entirely new process.

This is why Suriel indicated that his foundation will meet with the OM, the Attorney General and other lawyers to determine what the next step will be.
