Not giving up! Former Prime Minister opens foreign bank accounts for donations

WILLEMSTAD - Former politician and former Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte is not giving up. After his banker Orco Bank had frozen his account for donations, he immediately started looking for a solution, Schotte says in a new video on social media.


Schotte, who was convicted of corruption, has two bank accounts abroad where sympathizers can deposit money to pay his debt to the state. He must have collected 1.8 million guilders by 12 May at the latest to be able to pay the Public Prosecution Service. For this, the former Prime Minister of Curaçao has now opened two current accounts with TransferWise. Incidentally, this is not a bank, but an electronic money institution. A checking account is for donations in euros. The other is for dollar payments. Schotte has already repaid more than 30,000 guilders of his debt.
