The other teenager was stabbed in his stomach and punched one of his lungs. He underwent urgent surgery and his situation is critical. The victims are 17 and 18 years old. The police are investigating the case. There’s no trace of the culprit.
Of course this coming off the foot-heels of yesterdays article in Diario where a man reportedly hanged himself. The article in Diario also shows a picture of the above Amigoe stabbing story as well.
When asked of the crimes and violence I guess the PM must have just said … let them eat bread, expensive bread that is.
Price of bread increased, Amigoe, January 9, 2007
ORANJESTAD – The price of bread went up effective today. The deliberation between the association of bakers and Economic Affairs resulted in the increase of the maximum acceptable price for bread. Depending on the weight, the price of a casino is between 1.11 and 3.75 florins, bbo inclusive; no bbo inclusive, the maximum price is between 1.08 and 3.64 florins.
The ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs placed an ad in the newspapers with the new price for several types of bread. The price increase is the result of negotiations between the association of bakers and economic affairs. The association wanted a price increase for white bread, because they say that with the introduction of the bbo, they can no longer pay the costs. Minister Swaen said that the association has to come with figures that can proof this. The bakeries Huchada, Panaderia Del Pueblo and Bright Bakery presented their figures last Thursday. From these figures it appears that bbo is charged on the transportation of the container, the transportation and delivery of the products to the bakeries, and other companies involved with the process pass on the bbo on the bakers. The association of bakers said that they will take actions if the deliberation does not lead to what the bakers want. One possible action is no longer baking white bread. But that is no longer necessary, because the price of white bread has been increased.
