MFK on Central Bank: ‘How long do we have to wait?’

Gerrit SchotteWILLEMSTAD - The MFK wants to know from the Minister of Justice, Dr. Jose Jardim how long he will refrain from giving substantive information to the Members of Parliament about the research done by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) on the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten parliament (CBCS).

In early February, the MFK faction asked the Minister exactly the same question.

“If you are in possession of the report, how long are you going to refrain from giving substantive information to this parliament,” MFK leader, Gerrit Schotte asked.

MFK requested a Central Committee meeting to discuss a report from 2012 made by the Court of Auditors (ARC) on the CBCS. According to Schotte, Jardim said, during a permanent Finance Committee, that the investigation would be completed mid 2013 and would be presented to parliament on October 15 of the same year.

“It is now April 15, 2014 and to date, the parliament has not received the report.”

MFK’s question comes at the moment that the Minister of Finance of Sint Maarten, Martin Hassink, will visit Curacao to talk with Jardim about the report. This was announced by the Prime Minister of Sint Maarten, Sarah Wescott-Williams. According to Mrs. Wescott-Williams, the two Ministers will discuss, based on the content of the research, which parts of the report will be made public.
