Curtain closes for Minister Navarro

NavarroWILLEMSTAD – The Minister of Justice, Nelson Navarro has put his position at the disposal of his party. In the first instance, the Minister announced that he will put his post at the disposal of Parliament where a majority has to decide if they want him to continue as Minister or if he should resign.

Curacao Chronicle has understood that the situation is now different. Minister Navarro, after consulting with the political party PAIS, has decided to offer his resignation giving the leaders of the party free way to either reject his resignation or accept it and start the process of finding a replacement.

As we have reported earlier, during the early hours of September 7, the principal suspect in the murder case of the political leader Helmin Wiels committed suicide in his cell at the Barber police station. The suicide case is reason enough for the Minister to assume his responsibility and leave his post at the disposal of his party.

He will be the second Minister in the Government headed by Ivar Asjes to resign in such a short time.
