Canadian Man Found Guilty of Killing Palm Springs Woman, Draining Bank Accounts While Hiding Money In St Maarten and Anguilla

“There was a plethora of evidence at his home,” Carter testified. “It included a receipt for duct tape, travel to St. Maarten, manifests from St. Maarten to Anguilla in the Caribbean. There was a passport we located. We located banking information from the bank in Anguilla. We located banking information from the Royal Bank of Canada.”

AI: Peter De Witte, Former St Maarten Police Chief Responds To Bibi Ho

This technology is AI: Artificial Intelligence.

I won’t dumb it down, I won’t back down. People like Glen Rombley, ‘Mr Cool’, should be wise enough to question what they don’t understand, but that’s expecting too much in St Maarten, where the population is considered ‘slow’, and people are too stupid to understand video animation and manipulation.

Life is too short for those who can’t or don’t want to understand.

In St Maarten where they love the path of least resistance, criticizing is better than educating any day.

This is A.I. it is animation, not real. Bibi Ho is upset that St Maarteners are dumb enough to fall for A.I. when EACH TITLE BEGINS: ‘A.I.’

Rather than concerning herself with St Maarten political satire and melee, why doesn’t she go scrub down Ramsan, before he relapses again?😉

Yes, political satire is as dangerous in St Maarten now, as it was in Biblical times when they were locking up Apostles such as Paul for calling out King Herod and putting three 666’s to his name.

So persecution of satirists has been happening since the beginning of satire. The only thing that changes is the technology.

Everyone knows:

1) I have been putting together a videographic online series of documentaries about the history of St Maarten. It is very time consuming work, so I take breaks by messing with software like this.

2) The Vlog started last week. It’s been too rainy, but I will be shooting LIVE as soon as the weather is better.

3) I have set up some surprise new websites. Stay tuned

4) I will be teaching online yoga and pilates again FINALLY 2020

5) I do everything myself, so it might take some time, but it will be worth it.

6) New blogs, videos, animations coming up!

‘These accusations are deeply offensive and wrong. Scott’s race, and Kenny Mitchel’s race, are irrelevant to the facts of what happened,’ he added. 

Prosecutors in Anguilla are yet to respond to his comments and allegations.  

Mitchel’s friends and family have already disputed Hapgood’s version of events and his te

WUITE DELIVERS NATIONAL STATEMENT TO 40TH SESSION OF UNESCO GENERAL CONFERENCE

On November 14, 2019, Minister Plenipotentiary Jorien Wuite delivered Sint Maarten’s National Statement at the 40th session of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) General Conference in Paris France. 

The Sint Maarten delegation at the General Conference comprised of Marcellia Henry, Secretary General for UNESCO, Sint Maarten and Carol Voges, Director of the Cabinet of the Minister Plenipotentiary, and Kamilah Gumbs, youth representative for the 11th UNESCO Youth Forum, who will be joining the delegation for the youth forum on November 18-19.

The delegation was part of a wider kingdom delegation including the Ministers of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands, Curacao and Aruba. 

Minister Plenipotentiary Wuite, on behalf of the Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports, who was unable to attend the General Conference, shared the progress of Sint Maarten on behalf of the Government and the people of the country.

A major highlight of the speech related to the Department of Culture and the Sint Maarten National Commission for UNESCO officially launching Sint Maarten’s first Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) inventory under the awareness campaign, I.R.I.CH., which means ‘I Remember Intangible Cultural Heritage’. 

Sint Maarten reaffirming its commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was another high point of the speech.

Minister Wuite also emphasized Sint Maarten’s strong support of the UNESCO Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Action Plan and UNESCO’s initiatives aimed at promoting the importance of mitigation and adaptation, as well as building the resilience of SIDS to impact climate change.

The Minister also accentuated that only by working together and granting SIDS an equal platform within global platforms, such as UNESCO, can we ensure the creation of a desirable future for all our children.

During the conference, Minister Marilyn M. Alcala-Wallé of Curacao, on behalf of the Dutch Kingdom signed the 2019 Regional Convention for the Recognition of Studies, Degrees and Diplomas in Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean. 

This instrument commits the signatory countries to adopt all necessary measures to recognize the studies, degrees and diplomas of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean according to the terms contained in the new Convention.

The aim is to promote academic mobility in the region, intraregional cooperation and regional integration.

Minister Plenipotentiary, Jorien Wuite and Marcellia Henry, Secretary General for UNESCO support the convention and the implications for Sint Maarten and look forward to our island ratifying the convention in the near future.

The Sint Maarten delegation also secured two high-level meetings with Directors of the Social and Human Sciences Sector at UNESCO where the Anti-Doping Convention and the Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme were discussed.

Outcomes of the meeting were the necessity for Sint Maarten to ratify the 2005 International Convention against Doping in Sport, and to be actively involved in the MOST programme.

Further collaboration for the MOST programme will also be explored between the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science in the Netherlands (OCW) and the Minister Plenipotentiary of Sint Maarten.

Another positive result was Sint Maarten obtaining the opportunity to participate in the upcoming Second UNESCO International Science School “Promoting youth leadership on climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction in the Caribbean” Regional event to be organized in Havana, Cuba, from 3 to 5 December 2019.

Los Roques: How Venezuela Is Using Aruba, Bonaire And Curacao to Smuggle Its Gold.

Los Roques had already drawn attention before. In September 2019, the Venezuelan Ecological Society (EVS)  denounced the government of Nicolás Maduro for the delivery of illegal concessions for infrastructure projects in the archipelago. The EVS made the complaint after the Ministry of Tourism offered to national and foreign investors the opportunity to build “high-level tourist accommodation” in Los Roques, overcoming Venezuelan regulatio

Turks and Caicos’ Jamaican coaches denied entry into Guadeloupe

RJR Sports understands that Jamaican coaches Andrew Edwards, Omar Edwards, Shavar Thomas and Aaron Lawrence have been denied entry and visas to Guadeloupe. The quartet who are working with the Turks and Caicos Islands Football team, have a clash this weekend against Guadeloupe in League “C” of the CONCACAF Nations League, needing a win to progress to the Gold Cup qualifiers. 

But due to having Jamaican passports, the four have not been allowed into the French Overseas Territory. RJR Sports understands that the Turks and Caicos Islands Football Association has taken the matter to FIFA and the French Government to get the coaches into Guadeloupe for Sunday’s encounter. 

The Turks and Caicos secured back to back wins for the first time in the history of the sport after defeating St Maarten 3-2 on Thursday.
