Parliamentary meeting on Central Bank postponed
WILLEMSTAD - The meeting on the latest developments in the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten (CBCS) in the Central Committee of parliament did not continue because of the current summary proceedings.
“Once the lawsuit is over, we will reschedule the meeting,” said the President of Parliament, Marcolino Franco. Renny Maduro, a member of the Supervisory Board, could not be present due to other obligations.
Supervisory Board member Thomas Kok gave as the reason for his absence the current summary proceedings. The management of CBCS could not be present because of the lawsuit.
The meeting on the CBCS was requested by opposition party MFK. Gerrit Schotte, political leader of the party, also wanted to know when the meeting will continue. He also made a request to convene the meeting only when all the invitees have confirmed that they will be there.
According to Franco the current issues in the bank are also the cause for the cancellation, but the meeting was called before the lawsuit was filed. Also, parliament assumed that the lawsuit would be settled before the meeting.
As previously reported, the parties in the lawsuit are under mediation.
