PHILIPSBURG:--- On June 3rd, 2022, I presented a compelling and detailed analysis to the Parliament of Sint Maarten identifying how article 50 sub 2b of our Constitution has proven to be in violation of International Treaties and specifically Human Rights of a higher order, to which Sint Maarten is bound.

These international treaties and human rights as such out-rank article 50 sub 2b of the Sint Maarten Constitution in the legal hierarchy and render the application of article 50 sub 2b of the Sint Maarten Constitution moot, under the given circumstances.

Article 50 sub 2b of our Constitution regulates the suspension of Members of Parliament, who have not been irrevocably and as such definitively sentenced for certain crimes.

Safeguarding the rights and obligations granted to our country by being bound to treaties is the responsibility of the Parliament of Sint Maarten as this countrys legislative body, tasked with creating and amending the laws of this nation Read more
