NV Luchthavenbeheer has debt of USD 17 million
“NV Luchthavenbeheer (Airport Management) has a debt of USD 17 million,” union chairman Lloyd Read told Times of Suriname on Monday. Reports indicate that former management failed to pay debts and hand over the premiums for pensions, general old age retirement and taxes. The union chairman pointed out that big contractors still have not received payment. Read explained that mismanagement by the previous head of the company has left the company with a very high debt. When the company was still under the previous management, the union had been promised that the company would be screened thoroughly. But management kept postponing the screening which still has not happened yet. “If the screening had taken place, we would not have had this problem,” said the union chairman who added that an investigation will be launched to find out what happened to the funds that were not deposited and the reserves that were available. The union chairman explained that several things have been discussed with the new management team in order to make the company healthy again.
