Curaçao politician Almier Godett has been murdered. The number four on the list of the political party Trabou pa Kòrsou (TPK) is the cousin of Anthony Godett, former leader of the Frente Obrero i Liberashon 30 di May (FOL).
The shooting took place in the Juan Domingo neighborhood. According to the Èxtra, the deadly shooting is the result of problems in the family. Godett would have liked to calm an argument. A suspect linked to the murder has been arrested in the Mahuma district. Apparently that arrest was not without a struggle, because there were bullet shells on the street too.
It is the second incident at TPK, the party of Rennox Calmes. Earlier this year, party member Athly Maria, number sixteen on the list, was arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. Trabou pa Kòrsou (Work for Curaçao) is one of the fifteen parties participating in the state elections on March 19. The party had collected more than 2,200 support votes in the primary election. Rennox Calmes split from Partido Inovashon Nashonal (PIN) last year because he disagreed with the course of Suzy Römer’s party. He took his seat and continued as an independent member of the States. Calmes wants to deal with old traditional politics and pay attention to economics and education.
