Aruban Public Prosecution (OM) decides this week on Prosecution of minister, Ramon Lee (MEP) for Sexual Intimidation
Aruba’s image is taking another hit. Nice example being set by those at the top. If its good for the ministers, why not the people? Reminds us of another politician who behaved badly. Will Aruba investigate or cover it up … we wait again to see if they do the right thing.
Moral Corruption Starts At The Top
Amigoe; February 1, 2007: OM decides this week on prosecution of minister
ORANJESTAD – The Public Prosecution (OM) will decide this week whether minister Ramon Lee (MEP) will be prosecuted for sexual intimidation. The National Detectives are done with the investigation and the OM is deliberating about a press release on the results of the investigation.
The OM has been promising for some weeks already that they would make the results public, but hadn’t done it yet. According to public prosecutor Dop Kruimel, the results will be announced this week in a press release. Lawyer Biaz of the alleged victim indicated last week that he had a conversation with the OM that told him that he will hear in two weeks whether the OM will prosecute. “That the OM will announce this week what it is going to do with the results of the investigation, is new to me. I hope that we will be informed nicely and that we do not have to hear it from the media.”
If by any chance the OM decides not to prosecute the minister, Biaz will then consider appealing and so force the OM to take Lee before the judge. “I’m just considering it now, because I have not received any information on the investigation. I can only decide on the appeal when I have all the documents in my hands. Besides, it is absurd that I still have not seen any documents since the investigation has started in November.”
