PHILIPSBURG:— On Friday, April 13th, Moniek Bouland, Partner in the organization Governance & Integrity paid a working visit to Prime Minister Leona Romeo-Marlin as a follow up to an inquiry made on exploring the possibility of re-establishing an internal Integrity Bureau within the Government of Sint Maarten.
The Prime Minister is fully committed to a government that is built on transparency and integrity. In order to achieve this goal, an internal Integrity Bureau can be an asset to the civil service core as the Bureau’s proposed tasks can encompass periodical integrity training of civil servants, internal investigations of possible integrity violations and building trust in the organization to name a few.
At the conclusion of the meeting, both parties agreed that further consultation should be pursued and the Governance & Integrity organization has pledged its support in assisting the Government of Sint Maarten where possible as it explores the possibility of re-establishing the Integrity Bureau.
