WILLEMSTAD - The expectation of the Supervisory Board that, with the appointment of a new president, a start can be made with the restoration of the reputation of the Central Bank for Curacao and Sint Maarten, has not crystalized yet.
The Supervisory Board has urged Leila Matroos-Lasten to accept a mandatory leave of absent to await the outcome of an investigation into the leakage of important information about a candidate minister from the Central Bank. Matroos-Lasten has ignored the request of the Supervisory Board.
The top of the Central Bank of Curacao and Sint Maarten has been rumbling for years. Last month, the Supervisory Board announced the (temporary) appointment of former IMF CEO Bob Traa as CEO, whose task is to restore confidence in the bank.
