Plasterk offers TI report to Dutch Parliament

plasterk-2THE HAGUE, WILLEMSTAD – Kingdom Relations Minister Ronald Plasterk, has offered the Transparency International (TI) report to the Second Chamber of the Dutch Parliament. “By sending this report to the Parliament I have complied with my commitment made during the General Meeting with the Permanent Committee of Kingdom Relations on February 12, 2013," said Plasterk.

According to Plasterk it is striking that there is a gap between the general perception of corruption in Curaçao and the actual concrete and present information about corruption violations. Another point he cites is that the regulations are generally in order but compliance and supervision are lacking.

Plasterk also reflected on the financial instructions given by the Netherlands. “The instructions given by the Kingdom Council of Ministers to the Government of Curacao which were proposed by the CFT, are mentioned by the TI as one of the few effective monitoring mechanisms on the executive power since October 10, 2010,” Plasterk reiterated.
