Why all this commotion around FDRS

CeciliaWILLEMSTAD - The Fundashon Fondo pa Deporte i Responsabilidat Sosial, the Foundation for Sport and Social Responsibility Fund (FDRS) was legally founded by Mrs. Malvina Cecilia. In order to receive funding, an organization that wants to do something, must present a notary deed. The application for funding dated May 13 of this year and the foundation did not even exist in that time.

Cecilia indicated on the day the foundation was created that she was employed as a policy advisor to the Ministry of Finance. However, according to Independent MP Omayra Leeflang, per September 1, she was no longer employed at the Ministry. Leeflang MP says that Cecilia did this so the foundation could come across as a project under the responsibility of the Ministry of Finance. According to Leeflang’s complaint, it was not the first time that Cecilia commits this type of fraud. In a letter dated September 11 of this year, she indicates that she’s the Director of the FDRS Foundation. According to the founder, Glenn Sulvaran MP, Cecilia was never the Director of the foundation.

The ministerial decree is also invalid according to Leeflang. It states that 1.2 million guilders in subsidy have been awarded to the foundation, but in reality it is 1.3 million. For 2013 there were 500 thousand guilders budgeted and for next year 800 thousand guilders.
