“No facts exist to question his integrity”
St. Maarten News – Minister of Finance Richard Gibson made his position clear on the publicity surrounding the integrity of the Central Bank of Curacao and St. Maarten and its President Dr. Emsley Tromp. The minister said that an investigation ought to be initiated into the source of the leak of confidential information. This is the unabridged version of his statement:
“It is lamentable that confidential information obtained in the course of exercising the regulatory duties of the CBCS has been leaked to unauthorized persons. The publicity of this information is damaging to the reputation of the CBCS and sends the wrong message to local and international investors in terms of doing business in Curacao and Sint Maarten. Investors have to rely that confidential information provided to the regulator remains confidential under all circumstances to maintain and guarantee a sound financial system. With this in mind the law dictates that certain information has to remain secret. The leaking of secret information protected by law is a serious crime and an investigation should be conducted to determine the source of the leak of this confidential information.
