Welcome to my personal site!
My name is Nardy Cramm. Born and raised in Friesland (the Netherlands), I spent half of my adult life in the Dutch Caribbean islands of Curacao & Saint Martin (former Netherlands Antilles), studying law, working in IT and enjoying life.
As a natural researcher with a true passion for sun, sea, freedom, justice and fresh Japanese sushi alongside crystal clear blue waters, I got accustomed to traveling back and forth between all my countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, while working as an information technology analyst and specialist.
Knipselkrant Curaçao (KKC) was founded in 2010 by mr. Nico Herders, who lived in Curaçao. Soon after, I volunteered to grow his blog into the largest Dutch independent online freedom of speech/press platforum and archive in the Caribbean & Latin America.
What started out as a good and simple idea, turned out to be quite an adventurous journey. Little did I know then about the tremendous hurdles we were about to face along the way. After some peculiar stumbling blocks in the beginning, I was recommended to read a certain book and found the following quote:
“The Netherlands comes equipped with built-in island laundromats – Aruba, Sint Maarten and Curacao – and the Dutch speak English. Best of all, lax Dutch law means even if they get caught, there isn’t much anybody could do.“
From: The Sink – Crime, terror and dirty money in the offshore world – Jeffrey Robinson (2003)
From here on, pieces began falling into place. Political policies and media strategies started to make more sense looking at my beloved little countries through the eyes of narco, maffia and financial offshore families. To offer a truly objective, reliable and independent online news, discussion and archive platform, I had to adapt a more critical media vision towards shadow economies like our Dutch notorious drugs trade history and worldchampion tax paradise business model.
Organised crime Inc.
As a Dutch Kingdom affairs blogger, I became concerned about the abuse of our Dutch Kingdom islands in the Caribbean as a hub for corporate service providers with mainly Dutch backgrounds, managing international organised crime through anonymous shell companies and freezones, misusing tax treaties/rulings, weak supervision, lack of regulation and almost absence of financial law enforcement to harbour the world’s biggest offshore online gambling network of thousands of online gambling websites as a sophisticated money laundring, terrorism finance and underground banking infrastructure.
It’s not new. In fact, for centuries Dutch companies have been using our Dutch Royal Kingdom counterparts in the Caribbean to outsource the shady side of their business to our former colonies. Watch this short Curacao footage cut in the Netflix series ‘Narcos’ (S03E06) from the USA drugs enforcement agency DEA perspective:
‘So here’s what you need to know about Curacao. It’s a smugglers paradise. And for the Cali cartel, you can’t beat the location. Only 40 miles seperates South American coast from Curacaoan ports. Prized for centuries by smugglers, slave traders and now cartels. Cruiseships filled with old people, next to speedboats filled with cash. And what doesn’t get smuggled through, ends up in banks. Hundreds of them. Way back, some enterprising Dutchmen set up a financial system cloaked in old-world secrecy. Their economy is so dependent on money launderers parking their cash, that you can make an arrest, just not at or near a bank.’
Supporting slavery, smuggling and the Cali Cartel in Colombia was then. The last decades, Dutch and Antilles governments evolved towards openly supporting corporate services providers like notaries, trustcompanies, accounting firms and banks to serve Italian maffia, Colombian, Mexican and Venezuelan drugscartels, Maduro’s narco-regime and other international crime organizations, supplying them with thousands of illegal and unregulated offshore online casino sublicenses fromout of Antillian freezone datacenters, directed and managed by Dutch Antilles tax beneficiary trustcompanies. Here’s how.
In short: with almost an absence of functioning regulation, supervision and law enforcement on the Dutch islands in the narco-region, the same taxhaven infrastructure setup for multinationals is also utilized by criminal organizations to launder narcocapital, managed by the same trust companies and related service providers.
With the help of wonderfull volunteers, brave whistleblowers, loyal readers, international media and myself as a blogger and editor-in-chief, we exposed trustcompany CEO’s, accountantfirm partners, bankers, financial, tax, legal and payment services providers, linking top level government officials to the world’s most powerful narco’s and maffioso’s and their corporate services providers, as their ‘clientele’ cannot operate without the support of government officials, bureaucrats, politicians, police, prosecuting and intelligence officers. Together they created the world’s largest illegal and unregulated criminal-financial offshore online gambling empire by abusing the Kingdom’s extensive Double Taxation Treaty (DTT) network between the Netherlands, the European Union and beyond for preventing double taxation for multinationals, doubling as the world’s most advanced underground banking, money laundring and terrorisme finance infrastructure for organized crime. At heart by supplying criminal organisations with anonymous tax-avoidance corporate constructions including illegal and unregulated online gaming sublicenses and a state-owned, E-zone licensed telecominfrastructure to circumvent AML/CFT/KYC standards, to ensure dirty money ending up offshore in international banks and hedgefunds. Basically hiding in plain sight. In 2019, the Britsh Broadcasting Company (BBC) exposed the missing money laundring link.
With most (but not all) Dutch and Dutch-Antilles media knowingly ignoring and/or misrepresenting the facts, the Dutch offshore online gambling network proves not only to be the Dutch narcostate main artery transplanted to the Dutch Antilles, but operates also as the world’s biggest laundromat for international trustcompanies, banks, hedgefunds and crime organizations. Therefore, as a Dutch Kingdom-affairs blogger shining the light on this massive shadow economy, I cooperated with well respected international media like New York Times, PBS/Frontline and BBC, becoming a frontrunner and expert regarding the subject.
