Former trust owner released Monday

PHILIPSBURG–The 54-year-old Aruba-born owner of a former trust office in St Maarten was released on Monday evening, according to her lawyer Remco Stomp. She had been arrested on Sunday because of an ongoing investigation into corruption with building projects in St. Maarten.

  “My client denies any wrongdoing and cooperates with the investigation,” Stomp stated. C.deT. is suspected of co-perpetrating money-laundering, not reporting unusual transactions, conducting a trust office without a licence and destroying evidence, the Prosecutor’s Office said in a press release on Sunday.

  The investigation is being handled by the Anti-Corruption Taskforce TBO and the National Detective Agency (Landsrecherche St. Maarten).
