Thodé probably guilty of recording confidential meeting

Thode recordingWILLEMSTAD - There are strong suspicions that the Member of Parliament for the opposition party MFK Amerigo Thodé was the one who recorded the confidential meeting held between the Standing Committee on Finance in Parliament and the Committee for Financial Supervision (CFT) on September 4 of this year.

During a radio interview, the former Minister of Finance, George Jamaloodin played an audio clip of that meeting, while it was supposed to be a confidential discussion between the MPs and CFT. In this recording you can hear the leader of the coalition party PAIS, Alex Rosaria talking about mismanagement that took place between October 10, 2010 and December 2012 when the Cabinet Schotte was in power. The President of the CFT, Agge Bakker then proceeds to tell the PAIS leader that he never used the word mismanagement. Jamaloodin and Schotte used this recording to indicate that there was never mismanagement during their term in government.

The morning local newspaper Extra published this picture where one can clearly see a recording device hidden under some papers.

The President of Parliament, Marcolino ‘Mike’ Franco filed a complaint at the Public Prosecution (OM) in reaction to a letter from the faction leader of the coalition party PAIS, Alex Rosaria. The PAIS leader asked Parliament to investigate the leaking of the discussion held in this closed meeting. The President of Parliament did not specify against whom the complaint was filed.
