Investigations requested by Rudy Lampe (RED) in Aruba on bribery and attempt to bribery charges. These seem to be rather serious allegations coming from Lampe. Aruba … bribery? Say it isn’t so Joe, or Rudy Lampe as the case may be.
The Aruban Parliament-member Rudy Lampe (RED) presses for an international investigation in the Namdar-case. The investigation must include Aruba and the Neth.Antilles and also the Netherlands and the United States.
Amigoe; March 29, 2007: International investigation in Namdar-case
WILLEMSTAD/ORANJESTAD – The Aruban Parliament-member Rudy Lampe (RED) presses for an international investigation in the Namdar-case. The investigation must include Aruba and the Neth.Antilles and also the Netherlands and the United States.
The Namdar-case involves both Aruba and Curacao. It appears from leaked out e-mails that the American diamond dealer and businessman Effy Namdar has offered the Aruban government party MEP one million florins in bribery. It appears from correspondence that refers to the Tourist Minister of Curacao in May 2006, that also the Curacao commissioner Ivan Strick (Finance and Tourism, FOL) and possibly also the former Tourism-commissioner Gerrit Schotte (MPK then, MAN now, have been in contact with Namdar.
In the meantime, also the following politicians are involved in the matter: Governor Fredis Refunjol, former MEP-minister, Tourism-minister Edison Briesen (MEP), former minister Glenbert Croes (OLA), who most likely plays a part with regard to Curacao.
Lampe wants an international investigation, considering all these names from several countries involved in the matter. “These are serious accusations. It’s about bribery and attempts to bribery. There are UN-treaties against bribery. It is therefore best that all the countries in question join forces and have this case thoroughly investigated”, said Lampe who was an active priest before.
