PS not convinced of the value amendment Sanctions Law
WILLEMSTAD - Coalition party Pueblo Soberano (PS) is not yet convinced of the usefulness of amending the Sanctions National Ordinance. This became clear during last Saturday’s weekly meeting of the party.
During the meeting there were several PS MPs, who reflected on the meeting of the Central Committee last week, in which representatives of the local, but also the international financial sector strongly advocated for the amendments in the sanctions law.
Member of Parliament, Elmer 'Kade' Wilsoe strongly vented against the parliamentary factions that had invited the financial sector representatives.
Wilsoe derisively described the leader of his coalition partner PAIS, Alex Rosaria as Alexander the Great, “because he knew everything better”.
Leader of the opposition party PAR, Zita Jesus-Leito suggested last week that if the law should not be amended, this could be because there are “terrorists seated in parliament”. Wilsoe described the PAR as a terrorist organization that has terrorized the island for more than ten years.
Wilsoe indicated that he was not convinced by the arguments brought forth by the representatives of the international financial sector. He stated that he had not received answers to some important questions. He wanted to know why major banks such as ABN Amro and Mc Laughlin had left the island.
According to Wilsoe this case a matter of principle and the PS will not go against its principles.
Another PS MP, Jaime Cordoba also reiterated his opposition to the sanctions law. According to him, this is the Dutch government’s way to seek to gain favor of the U.S. government by flattery.
Coalition partner PAIS continues to work to get the amendments to the sanctions law adopted by parliament. PAIS indicated that the MP should put aside politics and approve this bill.
