SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – Member of Parliament (MP) Frans Richardson, through his attorney Sjamira Roseburg on Wednesday said that he definitely feels targeted and fully intends to fight for his freedom and innocence, according to a statement released on Wednesday afternoon to the media from the MPs legal counsel.
“Richardson is in restrictive custody and cannot have any contact with anyone other than his lawyer and law enforcement. Richardson still has faith to have a fair trial. His first case has been indefinitely postponed.
“This second case feels like a targeted attempt. The hardest part, however, is not being able to have contact with or see his family. His two young children, his wife, his mother all have to once again go through this traumatic event. More information will be shared with the public when possible by law.”
