POINTE BLANCHE:— The Supervisory Board of Directors of the Port of St. Maarten, following a hearing on Monday, August 21, has taken the decision to suspend Port CEO Mr. Mark Mingo pending its inquiry/investigation into the allegations lodged against Mr. Mingo. The hearing was held between Mr. Mingo and the Board of Directors with Mr. Mingo’s attorney present.
The Supervisory Board of Directors informed Shareholder Representative Minister Mellissa Arrindell-Doncher that it is gathering pertinent information and considering the defense brought forward by Mr. Mingo, so a proper assessment can be made, supported by documentation, on the allegations currently formulated against Mr. Mingo.
The board informed the Minister on Monday that it will duly inform the Minister of its findings. The board took the decision to suspend in accordance with the articles of incorporation of the St. Maarten Harbour Holding Company, which stipulates a maximum suspension period of two months.
The board informed the Minister that it will maintain contact with Mr. Mingo (he has also been instructed to do the same with the board) during its investigation to bring a prompt conclusion thereof.
The day-to-day operations of the Port continue as normal and are managed by temporary Directors Ton van Kooten (CFO) and Richard Van Der Mark (COO) and their teams.
