Teeven excited about plans for youth correctional institution

NavarroTHE HAGUE, WILLEMSTAD – The Dutch Junior Minister for Security and Justice, Fred Steevens welcomes the intention of the Curacao Minister of Justice, Nelson Navarro to create a new institution for juvenile offenders.

Navarro has asked for expert assistance to develop programs to treat these juvenile offenders. “People with experience would stay in Curacao for about a year or maybe two to help. There are many people with a Caribbean background who work in this sector in the Netherlands,” according to Minister Navarro.

Fred Steevens says that the Netherlands is very sympathetic about this request from the Curacao Minister and is willing to give assistance in setting up the new correctional institution. “We have to work now on concrete proposals,” Steevens states.
