PHILIPSBURG–The Prosecutor’s Office has decided it will not be necessary to send E.E.R., the female Pointe Blanche prison administrator from Aruba detained on allegations of fraud, to Bon Futuro prison in Curacao.

Prosecutor Dikran Sarian also said that although the suspect’s attorney had requested that she be transferred to the Pointe Blanche prison from the police station, she probably would remain in the police cells until the end of the investigation, which he said should be wrapped up within a week.

The Prosecutor’s Office had initially opted not to keep E.E.R. detained at the Pointe Blanche prison during pre-trial detention because some of the money she is suspected of stealing belonged to inmates.

Chief Prosecutor Taco Stein had told The Daily Herald on Thursday, “You can imagine what might happen if the inmates learn that there is someone locked up amongst them who is suspected of stealing their money.”

E.E.R. was detained following an investigation into the disappearance of almost NAf. 200,000.
