Personnel from the detectives’ department is busy investigating a stabbing that took place on the evening of April 2, 2021, around 05.30 pm in the vicinity of the casino on Welfare Road. According to the preliminary investigation, it appears that the victim made an arrangement with a man to take him to the casino on the island. An argument arose between the victim and the suspect in connection with the payment that ended in a scuffle.
During the scuffle, the victim sustained a cut in the face with a knife that the s
That board doesn’t deliver and even performs so poorly that you have to intervene. That has been unanimously supported here and across the street. Then there is an interim situation for two years, in which the Netherlands does everything and everything. Then there are elections and then the same administration comes back. Can you suffice to say that that is democracy? Is that all? That is certainly democracy, of course, but should you not also think about what we have actually achieved? Because it’s also about doing it with the people, isn’t it? Those are your words, too, and they’ve been taken from my heart.
State Secretary Knops:
That’s definitely democr

The tender for the next three schools is in preparation. The remaining 13 schools will follow the restructuring of the agreement between the World Bank and Sint Maarten. Additional funding is also required for this. This is an example of a project that has taken far too long. There was a long run-up and a long preparation. It was in the Ministry of Vromi.
You’re going to have to invest in that. As part of the Envelope region, we have made 7.2 million available for the implementation of the coral restoration plan. Another part that is currently running, also with tourism organizations, is certifying destinations and tourist locations as Blue Destination destination.
State Secretary Knops:
I do not think it helps in the relationship between two countries the charges just mentioned, namely elements such as doubting the intentions and placing things in the perspective of postcolonial et cetera. That makes it all complicated. Sometimes you have to maneuver around something to get to the target. In a relationship in which there are only two countries in the Kingdom, one of which has a problem as a result of a natural disaster, you hope to be able to organize it differently.
But we saw, for example, at the airport that there was a lack of political will; Let me put it this way. With the dump, it is also an issue that the knowledge and expertise are hardly available and that there was no follow-up. The ministries responsible, the Ministry of VROMI in this case, did not have sufficient execution power to be able to do so themselves. So you can have a very capable World Bank with all the technical expertise, but if on the other side of the partnership one is insufficiently receptive or does not have enough knowledge to be able to respond to it, then it does not work. That balance has to be sought. We may have thought too easily
arrangements that had to be concluded, for example an establishment agreement that the government of Sint Maarten had to conclude, so that the World Bank can legally work well on Sint Maarten. That’s taken way too long. Covid got over it, so people weren’t allowed to fly in and out. That made it complicated, too. B
But we all have a good heart for the people of those islands. And such a good heart that Mr van der Burg even says: we want to get involved so badly, because it has to go well for that population. And then you come to the question: we would like to get involved, but how does that relate to the Statute for the Kingdom of the Netherlands? Article 41 states that the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten independently represent their own affairs. That is a basic principle, which we cannot ignore unless we are going to amend the Statute. Mr Recourt has already said that perhaps the Statute is not entirely contemporary.
In the letter from the State Secretary to the State Council of Ministers, I read about the interventions involved. For example, I read: “Labour markets need to be reformed to give opportunities to the large and growing group of outsiders in the labour market.”
The Senate wants to use the discussion of the budget for Kingdom Relations to exchange ideas more deeply with Knops now that the end of his term of office is approaching. The following senators will speak: Paul Rosenmöller (GroenLinks), Arda Gerkens (SP), Toine Beukering (Nanninga Group, ex-Forum for Democracy), Jeroen Recourt (PvdA), Boris Dittrich (D66), Ria Oomen (CDA) , Annemarie Jorritsma (VVD), Peter Schalk (SGP), Peter Nicolaï (Party for the Animals) and Ton Raven (Independent States faction).

The dysfunctional enforcement of law and order is noticed when a visitor manage to enter the country and don’t seem to need any residence permit to live and work here. Without a work permit they would search for jobs in order to survive. These undocumented workers will find employment because employers will rather employ these undocumented persons and pay them what they want, while not paying SZV insurance and or pay as you earn taxes to government, which is a requirement by law.

1) The only person in St Maarten who might have embezzled more money than Andrew Dick, is his buddy, MP Rolando Brison. The person he was with, before his rampage, arrest and walking the streets.
2) You cannot continue to reward a person when they should be disciplined or punished.
3) Someone who is always allowed to get away with anything, will always be trying to outdo themselves.
4) I did not rejoice at anyone’s downfall, I treated Andrew Dick with more respect than he had ever given me.
