Former Minister Plenipotentiary Pieters not positive about Asjes

Roy Pieters door Rita van der HeulWILLEMSTAD – Former Minister Plenipotentiary in the Cabinet Hodhe, Roy Pieters, has little to say about the current Prime Minister of Curacao, Ivar Asjes. This is what Pieters declared to the Dutch newspaper Brabants Dagblad.

“We were on the right track with the integrity process and also good governance and what does Asjes do? He gives his wife a senior post in the Government,” Pieters indicated in the interview. Pieters also said that he was ordered to appoint Helmin Wiels sister, Marvelyn Wiels (current Minister Plenipotentiary) as the Director of the Curacao House (equal to an embassy), but he refused because there is a normal procedure which has to be followed. “As the tale ends, she’s now my successor,” Pieters said to the Dutch newspaper.
