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.
