Constancia possibly to serve sentence this year because of surgical face mask affair

WILLEMSTAD – Member of Parliament Jacinta Constancia of the opposition party MFK has to take into account that she will have to go to jail in the first half of 2019.

As is known, Constancia was sentenced to 20 months in prison in August 2018 and was not allowed to exercise the function of Member of Parliament for 5 years. Constancia has appealed against the punishment. Nevertheless, there is a chance that she already must serve her time in prison.


According to the judge, she is partly responsible for fraud in the alleged purchase of 40,000 surgical face masks. For this, the amount of 365,000 guilders was paid, more than 200,000 dollars, but nothing has ever been delivered.
