POSTED: 12/11/13 6:40 PM

St. Maarten – Former Finance Minister Hiro Shigemoto will probably have to stand trial in the spring of next year on charges of money laundering, fraud and forgery.

Shigemoto was arrested on December 16 of last year as a suspect in the Piranha-investigation that also involves 59-year old Roberto G.

The prosecutor’s office said in answer to questions from this newspaper that at the beginning of next year there will be a pro forma hearing, whereby defense attorneys will get the opportunity to submit their wishes for further investigation. The trial will take place at a yet to be decided date in the spring.
