Navarro: “I’m not responsible for the security at the airport”

Nelson NavarroWILLEMSTAD – According to the Minister of Justice, Nelson Navarro, he is not responsible for the security and the safety of the people at the airport. “Airport is a private property and they have their own security,” the Minister said.

“What happened last night is terrible for Curaçao. It’s a blow for the tourism of our island and we have been working so hard to achieve success in this field. It’s an important economic pillar for our island,” the Minister declared. The Minister also said that he heard various people accusing the police for the lack of security, but he wants to stress that the airport has their own airport police and they are responsible for the safety of the airport users.

“These criminals don’t care about the innocent, we witnessed this yesterday. They shoot and don’t care if they kill innocent bystanders,” the Minister said. He also indicated that there is a plan to combat crime, but this cannot be implemented on short term. One of the most important aspects is the funding to implement this plan.

“The police is  aware of who committed this crime and there will be arrests soon,” the Minister said.
