Appeal judges cancel flight to St. Maarten. MPs’ Buncamper, Heyliger, Richardson, Matser Trials Postponed Full Details From Curacao

At the moment that the decision was taken to continue with the hearings – after considering all the interests at stake and deliberation with the local health authorities in both St. Maarten and Curaçao – the governmental decision to close the borders was not yet in place. As that is the case now and the flights have been cancelled, there is no other choice but to cancel the trip,” Joint Court acting spokesperson Desi Dijkhuizen said in a statement on Saturday.

Knops 10: Job Center Set Up Bonaire. Job Advice Career Opportunities. Affordable housing 500 New Rented Homes FCB. 76 Are Ready.

Ministry of Social Affairs and Social Affairs, a job centre has been set up. That was before corona. There, people looking for a job can get advice on their job and career opportunities. Then affordable housing; 500 social rented homes, that is really a breakthrough with the local housing corporation FCB. There are now 76 ready. I’ve been visiting, too. Beautiful houses. Work is currently underway on the realization of the next phases. A bill has now been passed, also by this Chamber, on the rental committee on Bonaire.

Knops 4: “Sometimes you have to maneuver around something to get to the target… With Sint Maarten, that was just much more complicated.”

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.

Knops 3: With The Airport, There Was A Lack Of ‘Political Will’, At The Dump And Vromi, A Lack Knowledge, Expertise & Execution Powers

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.

Knops 1: €352 MILLION Deposited In Trust Fund, 9 Projects Underway. 2 Being Prepared Worth $419 Million. 2000+ Participants Income Support/Training. 1300+ Roofs Repaired

We have currently deposited €352m into the trust fund. Nine projects are in progress and two are in preparation, worth $419 million. We have successfully completed an income support and training project with 2,000 participants, who are therefore more employable in the labour market. More than 1,300 roofs have been repaired. More than 100 shipwrecks in the Simpson Bay Lagoon have been cleared. The new building of the hospital has started. The tender for the reconstruction of the airport is currently underway. The tenders have just been received and are currently being assessed.

UPDATED Knops Answers English, FULL Policy Debate On Kingdom Relations. Minister Raymond Knops Questions Answered: Sint Maarten, Aruba & Curaçao

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.”

Political system throws light on law & order in St Maarten. WENDELL MOORE, Exclusive Analysis

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.

Before Andrew Dick Was In Jail & On The Streets, He Was Waiting Outside My Home. An Hour Before His Arrest, He Called Me. WHY?

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.

I want to tear down the walls that divide us”

I lived and worked on Sint Maarten for over twenty-two years. I have seen up close how Hurricane Irma forced society to its knees. But I also saw how people can get back on track, together with each other. How they show resilience under difficult circumstances. Also during the corona pandemic, the consequences of which are felt throughout the Kingdom. Let’s join forces and work together for a better Kingdom.
