WILLEMSTAD–The only remaining director of the Central Bank of Curaçao and St. Maarten (CBCS), Alberto “Chos” Romero, will reach the mandatory pension age of seventy this Friday. This means the Councils of Ministers of the two countries in the monetary union need to appoint a new one by then.
Normally, management consist of two directors and one president. The latter, Emsley Tromp, was recently dismissed in connection with his “Safire” tax-fraud and money-laundering case, while director Jerry Hasselmeyer also retired in July.
Curaçao Finance Minister Kenneth Gijsbertha confirmed that former Finance Minister José Jardim and Lelia Matroos-Lasten were nominated by the Supervisory Board as directors. Sources told the Amigoe newspaper that Elton Daal may become the new CBCS president.
