Witnesses heard in medical facemasks fraud case “Dubnium”

jacinta-constancia-3WILLEMSTAD – Several witnesses were heard in the so-called Dubnium case last week. This is the investigation into the large-scale fraud in the order of medical facemasks.

One of the witnesses was heard under oath held by the magistrate, on Thursday for perjury, but was later released.

This was announced by Norman Serphos, spokesman for the Public Prosecution. In case there are now five defendants: former Minister of Public Health, Jacinta Constancia, her former husband and three others.

The person who was arrested last Thursday, according to sources, was put under pressure by Constancia and even threatened. Now this person declares that he doesn’t remember any of it.

In the Dubnium, more than three hundred thousand guilders was paid for medical facemasks but these were never delivered. The case was supposed to be presented before a judge in May this year but the Public Prosecution needed more time for their investigation.
