Thode: ‘Navarro responsible, not police chief’

ThodeWILLEMSTAD – According Member of Parliament for the opposition party MFK, Amerigo Thode, there is only one person responsible for the death of Luigi Pretu 'Florentina (main suspect in Wiels’ case) and that is Nelson Navarro, Minister of Justice. Pretu’s suicide in his cell at the Barber unit, according to Thode, is partly due to negligence around the security.

“According to Article 50 of the Kingdom charter, the Minister of Justice is responsible for the Corps. The Chief of police just follows his instructions,” Thode said.


Minister Navarro believes that people are too fast in demanding for his resignation just because something went wrong. This is what the Minister said during the recent public meeting of the parliament. He adds that he does not feel compelled to leave. "If a detainee chooses to end his life, I am not responsible for it," the Minister of Justice declared.
