Robbie dos Santos responds to accusations
WILLEMSTAD, PHILLIPSBURG – Lottery boss Robbie dos Santos has serious questions about the investigation into the murder of the politician Helmin Wiels, specifically the case named Maximus. This is the investigation into the intellectual authors of the murder. One of the questions Dos Santos has is that in the first instance all the officers said that he paid for the murder.
“Now they are saying that I gave the order,” said Dos Santos. “Now what is it?” His reaction came after his name was mentioned during the first day of the case against Burney ‘Nini’ Fonseca. The case continues today. Dos Santos’ name and his half-brother, former Minister of Finance, George Jamaloodin were mentioned several times during the court hearings. Public Prosecutor Gert Rip indicated that these two men gave the order to have Wiels murdered.
Dos Santos indicated on his Facebook Page that Wednesday was a very depressing day for him, his family and his colleagues. “I asked myself why do people have to lie so much and they didn’t even ask me anything. Why does he say that I paid for the murder and then change it to me giving the order? Why? said the lottery boss. “I don’t think that these officers want to solve this case!”
Dos Santos said that the officers could come after him if they want. They can tap him as much as they like because they have been doing that for more than six years now. “I’m someone that cannot harm anybody. I cannot lie either.”
Dos Santos currently lives in Sint Maarten. His brother George Jamaloodin is in Venezuela pending his extradition to Curaçao.
