PHILIPSBURG--Police are presently investigating an embezzlement case involving InselAir manager A.H, and a former employee for allegedly skimming close to US $100,000 from the company.
The missing funds were discovered after an internal audit that took place two weeks ago by an external team of investigators. Reports of missing funds started to surface at the main office in Curacao several months ago and top management decided to send the investigators to find out what was taking place.
They discovered the missing funds and sent the manager on immediate leave of absence, while the company terminated the contract of the other employee. Talks had begun for a settlement between the two parties, however management decided to go another route and file an official complaint with the Police Department.
Meanwhile A.H. travelled to the Dominican Republic and the former employee’s whereabouts are unknown. Local prosecution spokesman Gino Bernadina stated that indeed an embezzlement claim was filed by Insel Air.
