Governor meets with entire Council of Ministers

Harbour View — Governor Drs. Eugene Holiday meets today at noon with the complete Council of Ministers to discuss the impasse in the relationship with the Netherlands about the conditions The Hague demands before providing financial aid for the reconstruction of St. Maarten.

The Netherlands insists on the establishment of an integrity chamber and on giving the Royal Marechaussee and Dutch customs officers control over immigration and border control.

Earlier on Monday morning the Governor invited DP-MP Sarah Wescot-Williams for consultation.

Wescot-Williams told minutes ago that she will withhold comments until after the Governor’s meeting with the Council of Ministers that began at 12 noon.
