After a major search on board Zr.Ms. Johan de Witt has been found drugs again by the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee. The LPD returned on Thursday after deployment in the West and an exercise near Spain. In September drugs were found at a crew member of the ship, there were indications that more were on board.
Zr.Ms. Johan de Witt left Den Helder at the end of August for the Caribbean Coast emergency relief exercise in the Caribbean. While the JWIT made the crossing, hurricane Dorian destroyed islands of the Bahamas. The ship was then (after a stopover on Sint Maarten), with hydrographic survey vessel Zr.Ms. Snellius, directed to the Bahamas. Afterwards it sailed to Curacao where the ship had to undergo an emergency repair. The ship sailed to Den Helder via a port visit to the US and Lisbon, where it arrived on Thursday. But instead of a relaxed return home, the ship, the helicopters and the crew awaited a police and customs investigation team. The ship was thoroughly searched on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday it was announced that 11 kilos of hard drugs were found. The search was set up because, according to the Marechaussee, there were indications of the presence of drugs on board. A 23-year-old soldier from the Johan de Witt was arrested last month when he had 11 kilos of drugs in his backpack. It is currently being investigated whether there is a connection between the two parties.
Drug capture is again a disappointment for the navy. In a year and a half, it is certainly the fourth time that a large amount of drugs is found in the navy. In July 2018, drugs were found by marines at the Marine barracks in Doorn in a container that came from the West, in June 2019 a cargo of cocaine was found at the naval base on Curacao , in September and in October on board Zr.Ms. Johan de Witt. Exercise skipped?
Zr.Ms. In the context of the upcoming leadership role of the Netherlands in the NATO Response Force task force in 2020, Johan de Witt would participate in the Dynamic Mariner exercise after the exercise in the West. This exercise ran from 7 to 18 October from the Spanish Rota. However, the ship was still in the US three days prior to the start of the exercise, and nothing has ended up in the public domain of participation in the exercise by the JWIT, while the Navy had previously announced that it would pay a lot of attention to participation by the Johan. de Witt. The Van Speijk was visible on social media.
“After he was arrested, we received specific indications that there were more drugs on the ship,” said a spokesperson for the military police. In Den Helder, where the ship is now located, the Johan de Witt has been extensively searched. The personnel that came on board were checked. Three helicopters were also searched.
The spokesperson does not want to say where the drugs were hidden.
“I fully understand that sentiment. But I don’t want anything to do with that. It must be done independently. The Public Prosecution Service must always be separate from Dutch politics, but also from Aruban, Curaçao and Sint-Maarten politics. ”

MP Jacobs & NA Board reacts to MP Emmanuel’s arrest
Leader of the National Alliance and formateur Silveria Jacobs as well as the Board of the National Alliance have taken note of the fact that our MP Christophe Emmanuel and his former Chief of his Cabinet were detained today, with house searches being conducted by the National Detectives of Sint Maarten.
The timing of his arrest is indeed very unfortunate and can be seen as interfering, as we are in the process of forming an interim government and preparing for yet another election on January 9, 2020. The MP certainly was within his rights as Minister of VROMI to issue land in long lease, had received advice from the relevant department and has therefor not handled outside of his purview.
We know that MP Emmanuel has been very critical of the functioning of the prosecution office here in St. Maarten and we hope that this is not what triggered this sudden arrest. MP Emmanuel has been representing the people with passion and dedication and has been labeled the voice of the voiceless.
Regardless of this situation, we assure the general public that we are 100% in solidarity with MP Emmanuel and his former Chief of Cabinet and remind all that one is innocent until proven guilty.
We also take time out to encourage MP Emmanuel, his former chief of cabinet and their families to stay strong and remain faithful. Our prayers and support are with them at this time as they endure this ordeal.
