Minister of Justice of Curaçao should step down  

The Antilliaans Dagblad today published the letter sent by Minister of Justice, Elmer ‘Kadè’ Wilsoe (PS), to Hillary Rodham Clinton and Eric H. Holder on 25 April 2012.

From this letter it follows that Wilsoe tried to interfere with the investigation by the Public Prosecutor (OM) into Robbie Dos Santos, Ponsford Overseas and Tula Finance (the ‘Bientu’ investigation).

In an unrelated matter, Wilsoe stated in the Amigoe (7 July 2011):

The law offers me the possibility to give general instructions to the Attorney General in connection with investigations or prosecution of criminal cases. As indicated from the beginning, I do not believe in class justice. All are equal irrespective of one’s position. I will let the investigation [into several Ministers -KF] take its course and not participate with speculations or insinuations in this matter.”

Asked about the letter regarding the ‘Bientu’ investigation mentioned above, only a few days ago Wilsoe stated that he has no authority whatsoever to interfere with any criminal investigation and that he had not interfered in any way.

Today it became clear that the Minister has been economical with the truth.

– Why did he write the letter in the first place?

– Who asked him to write this letter?

– Why did Wilsoe decide to interfere?

– Who actually drafted the “US attorney-style” letter?
