Giltay partied as chairman of the Central Works Council of the National Police, according to his old employer. He and his wife made candy trips to Curaçao and Sint Maarten and spent the night there in expensive hotels, according to the police. He also hired friendly entrepreneurs, according to the police, and messed with the invoices.

I extend heartfelt congratulations to the government and people of the Commonwealth of Dominica on their 41st Independence anniversary.
I salute this Caribbean nation and its people for their tenacity and resilience. The last few years have been exceptionally challenging, but the people of Dominica continue to bounce back stronger after every setback. Dominica in 1968, gained self-rule within the British Empire, and 10 years later on November 3 1978, gained full independence . Dominica and St. Maarten have always enjoyed a close relationship amongst their citizens, due to family ties, trade and a shared Caribbean history.
In a special way I salute the many Dominica nationals who call St. Maarten home and who have for decades and for several generations contributed to our island through their hard work and perseverance.
Happy Independence Day.
