Prior to the meeting held in Aruba the government of St. Maarten issued an instruction to all civil servants and government owned companies not to speak to the appointed Quartermaster because as far as St. Maarten is concerned the Constitutional Court annulled the protocol that was signed by the Dutch and former Minister of Justice Dennis Richardson.
Added to that Minister of Justice Rafael Boasman said that as long as the discussions are ongoing then the letter issued to all civil servants remains intact.
