Last week for members of Supervisory Board RdK

WILLEMSTAD – Despite being the Interim Government’s last week in office, the decision which they took in regards to the members of the Supervisory Board of the public company Curacao Refinery (RdK) still stands.

Last week Minister of Finance Dr. Jose Jardim, announced the dismissal of these members emphatically. This Board insists on staying as members against the will of the sole shareholder which is the Government of Curacao.

Not only is the damage against the Refinery immense but there are cases, discovered by the Government Accountant’s Bureau (SOAB), that simply are against the rules and regulations and compromises certain of these members personally. Some of these members have been doing personal business with the company which is the owner of the Build Own Operate (BOO) plant.

One of the members discovered by the SOAB doing business with BOO, with or without blessing from the President of the Board Mr. Oswald van der Dijs, is Mr. Henk Deira.

Aqualectra at this moment is more dead than alive after the reign of the Government headed by former Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte with its allies Pueblo Soberano headed by Helmin Wiels and MAN headed by former Minister of Traffic, Communication and Urban Planning Charles Cooper. Helmin Wiels appointed one of his own brothers as a member of the Supervisory Board of the utility company, but who for personal reasons has resigned from this post.

SOAB has “scanned” BOO and observed that the company Quality & Quantity Systems (QQS) operating under the same name has Henk Deira as its director and shareholder. This company has received the assignment from RdK/CRU to install cables under the “cape” of “Installation and termination of the Fiber Optic Cable from CRU to SWD-7”. This occurred without a public tender, which is just like other contracts under Van Der Dijs’ supervision.

Deira denied these allegations but documents prove otherwise. In the coming week more details will be revealed.
