WILLEMSTAD – The ruling party MFK headed by former Prime Minister Gerrit Schotte wants independence from the Netherlands. Both Schotte and former Minister of Public Health and current Member of Parliament for MFK Jacintha Constancia made a plea for independence in front of the TV cameras.
Yesterday after the raid at Schotte’s house, the former Prime Minister said that the Netherlands was the de facto ruler in Curaçao. “Curaçao is still a colony,” said Schotte.
Constancia also expressed this during an interview with the Dutch news channel NOS. “It’s time for us to take care of our own business here on the island.”
