Leeflang: ‘Navarro sets the wrong priorities’

Omayra LeeflangWILLEMSTAD - According to the independent Member of Parliament, Omayra Leeflang, Minister Nelson Navarro has set wrong priorities. "While crime dominates Curacao, Navarro is on other issues. He 'disarms' the police in all respects, while Curacao should be disarmed,” according to Leeflang.

According to the MP, the actions of the Minister of Justice Navarro bring unrest among the police officers. "The police chief was sent on mandatory leave for no apparent reason. He allows the president of the police union NAPB to be disarmed and he grants pay raises and promotions to others against all rules.

Leeflang indicates that crime cannot be effectively combated since corps members become unmotivated. “We cannot continue this way. Minister Navarro should stop creating tensions within the corps. The safety of the island should be his top priority,” Leeflang said.
