PHILIPSBURG:— Prime Minister William told members of the media on Wednesday that the Kingdom would be out of place if they appointed a quartermaster for the integrity chamber of St. Maarten. Marlin said if that was indeed done then that in itself is a breach of integrity. He made clear that so far the government of St. Maarten was not informed on the appointment and as far as he is concerned the appointment has to either be a rumor or joke.
Marlin said there is a court decision regarding the integrity chamber on St. Maarten and while the country believes that integrity must be upheld St. Maarten has enough entities, one being the Prosecutor’s Office and the Police to prosecute people who commit crimes and or integrity breaches.
The Prime Minister further explained there must be communication between the four countries of the Kingdom and so far the government of St. Maarten did not receive any information on the appointment of a quartermaster. He asked why St. Maarten should have an integrity chamber while the other countries of the Netherlands do not have any. Marlin every country in the world have integrity problems and each of those countries deals with those problems. He made clear that the Netherlands also have integrity problems and they do not have an integrity chamber in place. Marlin further explained that St. Maarten is doing its job when it comes to addressing matters of integrity.
