WILLEMSTAD, Curacao:--- Three men who were in a moving vehicle shot Member of Parliament of Curacao Herman Wiels to death on Sunday afternoon. SMN News learned that Wiels was shot next to the Breeze Hotel in Marie Pompoen around 4:45pm on Sunday. Reporters from Radio Direct told SMN News that Wiels was wearing a bullet proof vest at the time he was shot, but he received between seven to ten gunshot wounds. They said that the Member of Parliament was taken to the St. Elizabeth Hospital in critical condition. MP Herman Wiels was the leader of Pueblo Soberano. However, other reporters told SMN News that Wiels died on the spot where he was shot. They said police already found about sixteen catridges that were fired apparently from a machine gun.
According to reliable sources, speculations are that the shooters could have been related to the Dos Santos families due to a radio program that was broadcasted on Saturday. Other sources in Curacao said that Herman Wiels has been very radical and forceful with some of the measures he has been implementing in Curacao. SMN News further learnt that Wiels broke loose when he discovered that UTS and Robbie's Lottery allegedly has some secret bank account on St. Maarten with millions of guilders. So far, no official report from Curacao law enforcement has been released.
