WILLEMSTAD--Equipment to eavesdrop was detected inside the Central Bank of Curaçao and St. Maarten (CBCS) main building in Willemstad, confirmed management.
News of the possible presence of such devices was reported by local media on April 5.
It turns out the matter was first checked after personnel reported a sense that they had been listened into. The bank also does a regular security assessment.
Based on early indications, further investigation followed. It concluded that there was indeed equipment that could be used for eavesdropping and recording conversations, but also to prevent such.
None of the devices were active and they have since been removed.
