Emmanuel: Government Actively Trying To Distract From The Ombudsman Report

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten –– In a democracy, elected officials are accountable to the public they govern.

Independent Member of Parliament Christophe Emmanuel on Wednesday said it is embarrassing, yet telling, that the Minister of VROMI is openly and blatantly trying to de-legitimatize, and disqualify the result of the systemic investigation conducted by the Ombudsman on the tendering process for garbage contracts Read more

Emmanuel: Integrity Chamber Will Face Questions About Its Relevancy

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — Independent Member of Parliament Christophe Emmanuel on Sunday said the Integrity Chamber either have to finally prove its worth or endure more questions about its relevancy on the country budget of St. Maarten.

The MP stressed that the Chamber should have already stepped forward unsolicited and investigated the tendering and awarding of garbage contracts and, even more so now, should make the damning Ombudsman report on the same issue an investigative priority.

Emmanuel has in the past called the Integrity Chamber useless and has not deviated from that opinion since I have not seen any change or significant actions and contributions from the Chamber in this country.

From the issues at the airport, GEBE, the Harbour, TelEm, integrity questions in the administration and now the Ombudsman report on actions, or lack thereof, that created the atmosphere for corruption, the Integrity Chamber has been quiet when it should have been more active Read more
