There was a serious case of mismanagement at both the public companies Aqualectra and the Refineria di Korsou (RdK), which is the Curaçao Oil Refinery, during the Schotte-cabinet. The mismanagement was caused entirely “because politics has directly interfered with the operations of both companies.” Aqualectra is therefore currently almost bankrupt. This was reported by researcher Huub Willems in his opinion, which was published by the Dutch newspaper Amigoe. Read the article in English in the Curaçao Chronicle.
