Navarro: “Security measures have effect”
WILLEMSTAD - The additional security measures that were announced in July last year have been very effective. This is according to the Minister of Justice, Nelson Navarro. The Minister said that in response to questions from the media during the weekly press conference of the Council of Ministers in Fort Amsterdam. “The “atrakos” (assaults) were reduced in numbers.”
“At the end of June, I received a list of the last six months and it indicates that the number of robberies, car theft and other crimes clearly show a lower trend compared last year,” said Navarro.
The measures announced, including checkpoints and road blocks are now conducted according to the minister through the district offices. “Continuously there are searches and surveillances done,” said Navarro. The minister said that the same measures are still in force, but with a different approach.
