Thode: ‘OM is disrespectful’

Inval-Schotte1WILLEMSTAD – President of the political party headed by former Prime Minister, Gerrit Schotte, Amerigo Thode, was in parliament this morning when the investigation team raided his political leader’s house and their party building in Saliña. “After I was done with my presentation, I drove to our headquarters. I think it’s disrespectful of the Public Prosecutor (OM) to do what they have done in my party building. They raided our property without notifying me,” the clearly frustrated party president said.

Thode says that he does not know the basis for the investigation. Attorney Chester Pieterson, one of the lawyers who were present during the raid, wonders whether this was done intentionally.

Thode indicated that because of this action, Schotte was not able to give his dissertation during the parliamentary debate on the national budget for 2014. “Maybe this is how they wanted to shut him up, who knows,” Pietersen wonders.
