I have debated for a few days about putting this out there and thought maybe it maybe something everyone should know about. Last week (not sure of the day), a woman was attacked in her room during the day at the Tropicana. She was assaulted and robbed in her room. The woman was in her 50's and here on vacation. Due to the assault, she requested and was moved to another resort and then went back to the states 3 days ahead of schedule. This story did not make the local English language papers but was in the island news papers that the locals get. Local police and the American consulate were involved in the investigation but I have not heard any more about it or who the perpetrators were. I do not know if they were locals or off islanders. I don't want to panic or scare anyone, but want you all to know that crime is here and to be mindful of who is around and where you are. . . . This is a wonderful island and I want you all to be safe and enjoy your stay here. . . . .

From Curacao

http://www.latintimes.com/articles/3737/20130508/helmin-wiels-curacao-politician-shot-dead-marie.htm

Helmin Wiels, Curacao Politician, Shot Dead On Marie Pompoen Beach
By Amanda Schiavo, May 08, 2013 05:05 PM EDT

On Sunday afternoon, a prominent Curacao politician was shot to death on a pier located on a beach at the east side of the island of Curacao. According to the BBC, witnesses say a gunman killed Wiels on the beach and then sped off in a car.

Helmin Wiels was the leader of the Pueblo Soberano party -- a group with the goal of gaining independence for Curacao from the Netherlands.

According to curacaochronicle.com, "Pueblo Soberano is the largest party in government at this moment. After last election it became the leading party to form a government."

The BBC also reports that Wiels is the first politician to be assassinated on the Island of Curacao.

The Office of the Public Prosecutor issued a statement saying, "The Public Prosecutor's Office Curaçao formed a 'Major Investigation Team' (TGO) after the fatal shooting at Marie Pampoen on Sunday evening. All partners in the judicial chain, led by various public prosecutors, are participating in this."

The Prime Minister spoke to the media and said that they "are not accustomed to these things on the island." No motive for the killing has been stated and there are no suspects in custody. Authorities believe organized crime played a part in the assassination of Helmin Wiels. 

Wireupdate.com says, "Pueblo Soberano won last year's general election with 22.6 percent of the vote, giving it five seats in the 21-member Estates of Curacao. Wiels had received death threats in the past and would typically have a bodyguard with him, but the bodyguard had already been sent home at the time of the shooting."

Witnesses speaking with various news outlets say two gunmen approached Wiels on the beach and fired five shots killing the politician. No bystanders were hurt during the assassination.

"Bribes and corruption within government '         

WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, 2013 16:40

ORANGE CITY - Business leaders in Aruba have to deal with corruption, nepotism and too much bureaucracy in contact with the government. These are the main conclusions of a study by Michiel de Vries of the University of Aruba (UA).

By our reporter

Ariën Rasmijn

De Vries, a special funded by the Governor of Aruba chair good governance holds at UA, presented the findings of the report last night during a lecture in the auditorium of the university. Initially wanted De Vries from inside look at how public services dealing with corporate clients. However, he was denied access. "Then but from outside, from the business community." Of the many companies that were approached in April finally reacted 97 directors. They were among more questions on the functioning of the Aruban government in terms of effectiveness, efficiency, accessibility, expertise, quality of the civil service and administrative integrity. It was also asked about the last time that genuine consultation was held with the Aruban government about the company's key business.

Kickbacks and corruption

The responses of the surveyed managers about where they actually have to deal with when they approach a government, are shocking: 33.8 percent think the government action the last time there was insufficient contact and 23 percent even find it bad .

18.8 percent of the managers who were finally granted their request, called kickbacks and 21.9 percent called corruption. 30 percent say it was settled by private treaty. 41.2 percent reported excessive bureaucracy and 48.5 percent appoints high administrative burden. 48.5 percent of respondents signals cronyism.

Of the companies that did not see their request granted, identifies 33.3 percent corruption. 25 percent kickbacks deficit came to each other to have their business. 93.9 percent appoints excessive bureaucracy and 87.1 percent talks about working at cross of administrations. 59.4 percent called nepotism. 48.3 percent complains about high administrative costs and 58.8 percent even appoint three or more of the problems in the process. Said It is striking that the above mentioned cases of bribes in situations where a company asks an official advice. De Vries explains that this is not the case with permits, precisely because there are all sorts of controls.

Of all the companies who participated in the study had 12 percent no problems.

Companies anonymous

De Vries in the report omitted all the characteristics that would indicate the possible identity of this business. Because they were reluctant to participate in the survey, for fear that they would then be able to do with the government. Part no more business with the company name These companies all over the island, with a fairly even split between companies that existed in the last century and companies less than five years old. On average they have about fifteen people, but there are also sole traders and companies with more than 200 employees. These are directors of trade, tourism, real estate agents, lawyers and accountants. But managers of service companies, manufacturing, wholesale and medium-sized enterprises completed the questionnaire.

Former Prime Minister Balkenende: 'Fight drugs and corruption'         

WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, 2013 16:04

ORANGE CITY - The economic opportunities for Aruba as a hub between Europe and Latin America are up for grabs, but Aruba to drug trafficking and corruption continue to fight and be careful not to get blacklisted as a tax haven. This saying Jan Peter Balkenende and Caroline Rodenburg of accounting firm Ernst & Young.

by

Ariën Rasmij n

If you want to achieve things, then you must first have a dream, an ideal, says Jan Peter Balkenende, Corporate Responsibility partner at accounting firm Ernst & Young and former Prime Minister of the Netherlands. "That is the case here." In a dream follows a strategy and that's where Ernst & Young boarded. That strategy - based on the transfer of knowledge on sustainable infrastructure, energy, agriculture and tourism from Europe to Latin America, Aruba as facilitating switching - was by Balkenende presented Monday during the first day of the conference Europe Meets the Americas (EMA) . What now remains is to perform and the plans will actually continue, he tells Amigoe .

Balkenende feels that something is happening on Aruba. "What I find important developments on Aruba is that it actually is working to turn to ask what Aruba can contribute to a better global society. A long-term orientation down" Aruba takes with this statement a leader position, explains he. "There is no other island in the Caribbean where this occurs. It shows courage and I think it is very good that your next tourism other economic activities trying to find. "In the Netherlands, one often has an attitude of 'yes, but', the former Prime Minister. "But the point is to bring the case. Moving" That Aruba is organizing a conference like EMA also testifies to this, says Balkenende. He thinks Aruba buzzing, like the Gulf States in the Middle East, parts of China and Bangalore in India. "Look at what is happening on other islands, such as political developments in St. Maarten, the hideous murder of Helmin Wiels in Curacao. That causes me great concern. But here depends just want to tackle an atmosphere of business and bring things. "Forward The island is characterized by political stability and good links with the Netherlands, will Balkenende.

Drugs and corrupti e

Balkenende lists a number of conditions for the success of Aruba. Amigoe published yesterday that the former prime minister believes that there is a balance to be struck between short-and long-term goals. "It is a matter of courage in politics. And that has been here. "Safety is also an issue. Aruba has always been and still is a problem with smuggling of people, goods and drugs. "These things we also going to tackle," said Balkenende. "I was once a time on St. Maarten and made a speech in the courthouse. I then gave a huge warning about corruption and lack of integrity. When my message was that if corruption occurs on an island, you can get which investors say they do not want to do business. More a situation And in the fight against drugs, yes there will always have to act. That is also part of reliability, hence it must apply: address ".

Colombia, Brazil, Panama a

A dream is a strategy which make this dream. Caroline Rodenburg signed that strategy. "We were there last summer started. We have built up by first look. At both sides of the ocean Aruba as a hub function between two continents will perform, you should also know what is happening in those continents. What can we expect, what are the issues and opportunities in particular. Initially we looked at Brazil, Colombia and Panama and what's going to happen the coming years. Which sectors will develop rapidly in the coming years and which will be on the basis of opportunities. "Now the economy slows in Europe, his eyes focused on emerging economies in Latin America, Van Rodenburg. Europe is also where a lot of knowledge in Latin America need. "For instance, consider the agrifood sector. Within Latin America is very strong need to make this sector. Sustainable In the Netherlands, for example, a lot of knowledge about breeding of seeds, which can be used in Latin America. "

Facilitato r

The role of Aruba in the transfer of this knowledge to fulfill is that of facilitator. "Not by running large manufacturing companies to attract to the island. Not by actively contributing to economic development in Latin America itself. Brazil wants to build 800 airports in the coming years. Aruba as the bulldozers can not deliver. What Aruba is or may be the contact point between the need of knowledge in Latin America and the knowledge in Europe. The establishment of TNO here is the perfect example for. You can also look at training in Europe which can settle here, "says Van Rodenburg. This type of activity again attract highly skilled Arubans - eg lawyers - to the island. Moreover, low education may also to the bin, but in data processing. Of Rodenburg is convinced that the positive economic effects of the drop of a knowledge hub will be felt. Within a few years

Prefer not to black LISTS n

It will need a good look at legislation, Van Rodenburg. "Of course you have to watch out that you do not tax haven is, in the sense that you will get up on blacklists. But there are many ways still an attractive environment to ensure businesses. "As an example, Rodenburg From Green Zone Aruba, where companies specializing in sustainability can settle. "Then you do not even so much to do to make them attractive to it. The very fact that there are companies that are working with the same subject, makes it attractive for them. Since synergy. "Occurs

I don't know where to start, but I've spent the last couple of years working and going to school. I received my AAS in Political Science about a year ago, applied to the University of Washington, but was told that I needed to fulfill my World Language Requirement, as I fell short by a year. So, I finished up my World Language Requirement, and just today, I received my acceptance letter to the University of Washington. After spending so much time with the Monkey's discussing how Natalee Holloway wasn't afforded the opportunity to continue to touch lives, because of a MONSTER on the island of Aruba, I was again reminded we only get one go around. It is NEVER to late for those of us still blessed with this thing we call life, to make a change.

Thank you Muffy, Klaas, and Wreck. Many of the discussions we have had over the years in regards to Natalee Holloway and her unfortunate murder and disappearance, have had a great impact on my decision to return and finish school. Over the past year or two I've reflected on many different things, and the Monkey's have always played a special part in my progress as an Older But Wiser student, as they call me in the admissions dept. of the UW.

We've had some heated discussions over the years, but I just want to let you all know, I will always be a part of this forum, seek justice for Natalee Holloway, and will always keep ya'll updated on my progress at the UW, in the proper forum. Go Huskies!

JUSTICE FOR NATALEE HOLLOWAY

GOD BLESS
