Plaza and boulevard named after Helmin Wiels

Helmin WielsWILLEMSTAD - Helmin Wiels was assassinated almost a year ago. In commemoration the Wageningen plaza will be named after the deceased politician. This plaza will now be called the Plasa Helmin Magno Wiels. Ivar Asjes Premier and Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport Irene Dick will unveil the new name on Sunday.

The street name change is accompanied by a ceremony that will take place from 17:00 to 18:00.


On Monday, the boulevard right next to the utility company Aqualectra will also be renamed. The new name will be Helmin Magno Wiels Boulevard.

That ceremony will take place between 18:00 and 20:00.

Wiels’ family members believe that it is too premature to give the late political leader this honor. According to Wiels’ brother, Aubert Wiels, it is better to await the results of the investigation before renaming the street and the boulevard.
