Prison barracks to be renovated
WILLEMSTAD - The Ministry of Justice recently announced that it will renovate the special barracks for foreigners awaiting deportation in the Curaçao prison. Only a limited number of people can be locked up in the current state.
The Netherlands has pledged over 2 million guilders to expand the capacity of the barracks. Curaçao does not a have a refugee policy, therefore, everyone that stays illegally on the island and who is arrested will be deported.
