La Lider De Democratic Party (Dp) Informo Que La Reunin Esta Pospuesta Hasta Nuevo Aviso

La lder del DP explic que el aplazamiento es solo por un perodo corto, ya que permitimos que los muchos eventos programados para la misma fecha tengan prioridad y, a decir verdad, la respuesta ha sido tan abrumadora, estamos contentos por el tiempo extra para atar algunos cabos sueltos.

Incluso podramos tener que dividir las actividades que estaban programadas para el da 12 en varios das, pero eso se decidir la prxima semana.

Suspended Mp Buncamper Shine Some Light On His Case

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 outrank 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 definitely sentenced for certain crimes.

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

El Parlamentario Suspendido Claudius Buncamper Arroja Luz Sobre El Artculo 50 Sub 2B De La Constitucin

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – El 3 de junio de 2022, present un anlisis convincente y detallado al Parlamento de Sint Maarten identificando cmo el artculo 50 sub 2b de nuestra Constitucin ha demostrado ser una violacin de los Tratados Internacionales y especficamente de los Derechos Humanos de orden superior, a los que Sint Maarten est atado.

Estos tratados internacionales y derechos humanos como tales superan el artculo 50 sub 2b de la Constitucin de Sint Maarten en la jerarqua legal y hacen que la aplicacin del artculo 50 sub 2b de la Constitucin de Sint Maarten sea discutible, bajo las circunstancias dadas.

El artculo 50 inciso 2b de nuestra Constitucin regula la suspensin de los diputados, que no hayan sido condenados irrevocablemente y como tales definitivamente por determinados delitos.

Salvaguardar los derechos y obligaciones otorgados a los pases obligados por tratados es responsabilidad del Parlamento de Sint Maarten como rgano legislativo de este pas, encargado de crear y modificar las leyes de esta nacin Read more

Letter To The Editor

Mr. Editor,

I listened with great interest to the radio interview given by former member of Parliament, Mr. Theo Heyliger, on Monday, 22 June 2020. Firstly, it is excellent to see Mr. Heyliger in good health after his diagnosis in 2019 and I wish him continued recovery and health.

This is the second interview given by the former MP in a week, and while it was unclear what the overall purpose of the media blitz was, after the first interview, and subsequent press releases by the party he once led, I think the people can see the story being shopped around.

Revisionist History has been done by key groups throughout history: those who win wars, those who become dictators and, the largest and most controlling group, those who colonize (France, the Netherlands, England, etc) Read more

Up Board: Hearsay Trial Produces Hearsay Verdict

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – The board of the United People (UP) party on Friday said that the hearsay trial of party founder Theo Heyliger resulted in a hearsay verdict, and hopes Heyliger’s legal team appeal the verdict forthwith. We are disappointed, but the fight is not over, the board said.

The board in its response to the verdict in the Larimar Case maintained its position that despite years of creating negative and false impressions about Heyliger, the prosecutors office did not present any physical evidence of wrong-doing.

Instead, the board said, what the prosecutor and now judge went with the “gospel word” of nefarious Dutch contractors and a middle man who was given a deal to testify against Heyliger as a crown witness.

This crown witness who orchestrated everything, the board said, received just 36 months Read more
