Zoe Reiter: ‘so much has to be changed’

Curacao Government CenterWILLEMSTAD - There must be a lot of change and Curaçaoans are willing to fight against corruption, this is according to Zoe Reiter, head researcher of Transparency International (TI). Reiter is currently on the island to discuss the results of the investigation on corruption investigation which will be published in late June. This is slightly later than planned due to the political struggles after the fall of the Government Schotte.

The National Integrity System Assessment of Transparency International (TI) is in the final stage. This is based on a statement of Zoe Reiter. It is an assessment and no investigation. There are therefore no persons examined. The results of the investigation will be announced after a discussion with the stakeholders and the public and private sector. By unexpected elections the assessment had to wait a little longer. The entire process, which began last August, was suppose to be completed last December. Initially the assessment was requested by the government of Gerrit Schotte to calm down the whole fuss surrounding the screening of ministers. Various pressure groups believed at the time that the screening was not performed properly. If the cost of 200,000 Euros for the assessment will be recovered depends on the extent to what Curaçao will do with the recommendations of TI.
