Rat poison in coffee Minister of Justice

NavarroWILLEMSTAD - Perpetrators have managed to put rat poison in the coffee of the Minister of Justice Nelson Navarro. The failed attack was committed in February of last year in the government building Fort Amsterdam. This is according to the investigation by the Dutch Forensic Institute (NFI) into the contents of the cup of coffee.

Minister Navarro of the coalition party PAIS suddenly became ill after drinking the coffee. “That’s when they noticed that something was not right,” said spokesman of the Public Prosecutor Norman Serphos.

According to the NFI there were traces of rat poison in the coffee. The active substance aldicarb is one of the most powerful insecticides in the world, and already banned in Europe for over ten years. In Latin America it is sold under the name Tres Pasitos "Three Steps". Minister Navarro was lucky: the concentration of aldicarb in his cup was too low for acute danger.

It is not the first time that the crime fighter of the government becomes the target of an attack. Earlier, two Venezuelan mercenaries would have prepared a plan to corner the politician during a carnival parade, but Navarro was warned in time.

Minister Navarro refused to comment. But the case is currently silent, explains the prosecution. Investigation into how the poison could have ever gotten into the coffee,  and especially in Fort Amsterdam, where they government holds its weekly meeting, did not amount to anything.
