Curacao rejects deal with NL

Curacao’s island council has come out against the agreement drawing up a new relationship between the Antillean islands and the Netherlands.

The council says the Netherlands should take over more of the islands’ debt and have less influence on legal matters. Under the deal the Netherlands agreed to take on €2.4bn worth of debt – around 80% of the total.
