Five ministers in Cabinet Schotte interfered with the ‘Bientu’ case
WILLEMSTAD - Former Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte and four members of his cabinet were accused by the Public Prosecution (OM) of interfering with the ‘Bientu’ case. The OM did this during the recent treatment of the case by the Court of Justice.
This case dubbed ‘Bientu’ (wind) involves the lottery boss, Robbie dos Santos, who is accused of fraud, money laundering and tax evasion.
Former ministers Nassir El Hakim of Economic Development, Carlos Monk of Government Planning and Services and Elmer 'Kade' Wilsoe of Justice, interfered with the investigation. All three tried to boycott the prosecution in this case.
But the biggest culprit, according to the prosecution, is former Finance Minister George Jamaloodin, who is also Robbie’s half-brother.
Robbie dos Santos was the biggest financier of Schotte’s MFK party.
