June 9, 2021 THE HAGUE - The Netherlands has stopped liquidity support to Curaçao. Although the 25 percent cut on the employment conditions of ministers and members of parliament has been implemented, the legislation for this has not yet been approved by parliament.
Just like the legislation that provides for the 12.5 percent cut on the employment conditions of government-affiliated entities. According to Outgoing Undersecretary of Kingdom Relations Raymond Knops, that should have happened a long time ago.
The undersecretary also does not agree with the ‘little’ trick that the Rhuggenaath government has played by first placing the salaries of ministers in a higher pay scale and only then applying the 25 percent discount. As a result, there is a net salary increase.
