Tromp’s tax adviser to testify

TrompWILLEMSTAD - The Court has upheld the request of Emsley Tromp's defense to hear his tax adviser Wendell Meriaan.

Meriaan would have been the last tax expert who processed the Tromp tax returns in the period from 2011 to 2014. The pre-trial session in the Saffier case in which investigations are conducted into alleged tax fraud by the former Central Bank Director took place on Thursday in appeal.

After the decision by the Court of First Instance, in which Tromp was completely acquitted, the Public Prosecution appealed. The Court of Appeal proposed November 8 as the date for the substantive treatment, but the defense did not agree with this.

The parties therefore still have to agree on a date for the substantive treatment of the Saffier case.
