PHILIPSBURG:— Notorious criminal and former police officer Rogilio Gregory Koeiman was arrested for the third time based on an international warrant from the USA for drug-related charges in that country. Koeiman was arrested on Tuesday morning after the Prosecutor’s Office on St. Maarten received the decision rendered by the Supreme Court of the Netherlands. The first arrest was made in Curacao but somehow Koeiman and his lawyers managed to get the court on his side and not to grant the USA their wishes in the extradition request.
Koeiman was also arrested on St. Maarten based on the same request and the outcome back then had remained the same.
However, the case reached the Supreme Court who ruled in favor of the USA. Shortly after the decision was sent to St. Maarten Koeiman was arrested.
A press release from the Prosecutor’s office states the following:
