WILLEMSTAD--Curaçao Customs Director Jules Ilario has been placed on administrative leave by interim Minister of Finance Lourdes Alberto.

The staff stated to have no more confidence in the chief and last week took industrial action.
 
Pending further investigation Ilario is on vacation for at least 15 days (three working weeks). The employees do not agree with his policies and hold him accountable for what they say is an unsuccessful reorganisation process at the law enforcement agency.
