DEAR SXM, STOP RE-VICTIMIZING THE VICTIM….IT HAPPENS TO OFTEN IN ST MAARTEN

Posted on April 9, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , |

I have to post about this, because I see it too often in St Maarten. The mother of Mark Reid Jr just lost her baby in the most brutal fashion. People seem to sympathize with that, but somehow justify the killing of this innocent child saying, that “he was supposed to be the child father……so dey say….i hear dat he was supporting da child”

PLEASE!!!! Just please! First of all that rumour was started by family of this murderer, and it was started in the comment section of the SXMTIMES.com website. Even the people who wrote the comments, didn’t dare write it as fact, they posted that “they heard”. By the time the Dominican blog had picked up the story, the same comment was repeated on the Dominican blog, and then all of a sudden it was fact.

People….please!

Nothing support that rumour including the fact that the child was named Mark Reid Jr. from the beginning. If your name is Dalton LeBlanc, how do you believe a child named Mark Reid Jr. is yours, and support it unwittingly.

They’re saying that the mother duped this man, but the fact the child was NOT named Dalton Le Blanc jr, should have been enough for the local “black mouth dog”.

This mother is being re-victimized. How would you feel if someone took your 2 month old out of his crib, next to his bible, outside to the streets, and SACRIFICES him?

The next they you know, they’re not questioning HIM, THE MURDERER, they are questioning all of YOUR previous actions. So you lost your baby, and the only thing people can ask is whether you are some type of adulteress, even though there is absolutely no proof to the rumour.
I felt compelled to write this because of a conversation I had with an older Jamaican lady on the bus yesterday, and she was pissing me off so bad, but I couldn’t cuss her out on the bus.

She started.. “well what to you think ’bout what happened?” I said something like “St Maarten needs the death sentence”. But she wasn’t interested in the story from that perspective. She kept saying..”well you know dey say ‘im the chile father..” “you think she needs to do a dna test?” ….”you know dey say ‘im was supporting the child.

And I had to get quiet, because although she claimed to be a mother and a grandmother, she was only interested in the sordid. I finally asked her if the DNA of her child would matter, if a man just walked in and murdered him.

She simply couldn’t get it, and I hope that she is not in the majority.

There is NO evidence that there was any relationship between mother and murderer.

My question to you is, if all of this hearsay and rumours were true.

WHAT DIFFERENCE WOULD IT MAKE?

If all of these rumours are true, then he is TWICE the monster, because he didn’t brutally murder a strange child, he would be the beast that murdered his own child.

People, realize that you’re re-victimizing the family by not questioning the sanity of this man, just the fidelity of this woman who just lost her baby.

DUTCH QUARTER MARIJUANA/GANJA BUST

Posted on April 9, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

3000 plants confiscated from Brill Drive Middle Region to Gibbs drive Dutch Quarter, well my sxm smokers, you know the price in Dutch Quarter just went up.

Legalize it, don’t criticize it. Why are you arresting citizens for growing Marijuana when it should be legalized, taxed with the tax revenue being re-invested in St Maarten. Now these industrious young men, have to sit in a cell next to the guy who just murdered an innocent child, and the guy who just wiped out someone on a gun rampage. So many people could become self sufficient, if they were allowed to grow and sell their own marijuana. I know one retiree in her 60’s, and she asked me; “Why can’t I grow my little thing, and make some change, just like the boys?” I’m not kidding, she told me that she approached parliamentarians about growing her own plants, but it’s not politically correct right now. She told me that the government refused to up her anderstand and her pension. She actually would like to be self-sufficient and grow and sell her own ganja legally.

If parliament wasn’t caught up in so much right now, I would pose the question.

My sympathies go out to the guys who got busted. They don’t want to hire you in St Maarten, when they do, they don’t want to pay you right.

Rather than stealing, begging or collecting government cheese, these industrious young men decided to handle their business, and producing their own goods.

To be continued….

THE LATEST ON “BADA BING” INDEPENDENT MEMBERS OF ST MAARTEN PARLIAMENT TO SUE THEO HEYLIGER

Posted on April 2, 2013. Filed under: ALL PHOTOS JUDITH ROUMOU, ALL VIDEO JUDITH ROUMOU, judith roumou, louie laveist, patrick illidge, PATRICK ILLIDGE, sarah wescot williams, sint maarten police dept, sint maarten police fotos, ST MAARTEN, st maarten, st maarten news, st maarten police dept, ST MARTIN, sylvia olivacce meyers, the st maarten daily herald, theo heyliger, united peoples party sint maarten | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Back in late January, the “Bada Bing” video was already being offered around by The United People’s Party and its agents.

Nobody in government can say that they were genuinely surprised at the videos intentional release, while they were in the Netherlands, because it was an open secret that the United People’s Party were in possession of the tape, and were seemingly trying to barter with/blackmail Patrick Illidge behind the scenes for months.

In January after being told of Norman Wathey’s offer of the blackmail tape, Patrick Illidge claimed that it was a part of a smear campaign, due to his defection from UP to Independent member of Parliament. He maintained that if  The Wathey’s/Theo’s persisted in the defamation of his character, he would sue.

That month, by chance I also interviewed other Indepedent member of Parliament Romain Laville. Romain Laville said that the United Peoples Party were playing a dirty game, and it was basically sour grapes. Romain felt that Jules James‘ accusations about a threat were exaggerated, and simply a part of the UP strategy to destroy his character because he had deigned to unceremoniously leave the party.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lo-fYms8IaE

Romain also stated in video two, that he felt that Calypsonian the Mighty Dow, was a Theo Heyliger/UP loyalist, and that he to had been sent to cause a scene, so that the UP could further smear his (Romain’s) name.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRdB3ldz6I0

Long before the “Bada Bing” saga, Romain had affirmed on camera, that the United People’s Party had offered him $350.000 dollars to stick with the party, it was NOT the $135.000 dollars Jaap Van den Heuvel had stated, but in the newspaper article, it appeared that Van Den Heuvel was taking the amount offered from hearsay.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=tT473AoFTkQ&NR=1

Now it appears that the Independent members of Parliament have begun the legal proceedings against Theo Heyliger/The United People’s Party

I spoke to legal consultant Denicio Brison, and he confirmed that

1) If Jaap Van Den Heuvel testifies in court that Theo Heyliger did mastermind the “Bada Bing” tape, it would be considered a felony, and it IS punishable under Dutch law. He said if proven it would be an attempt to “illicit a criminal act”.

2) If it is proven in court that Romain Laville was offered $ 350.000 dollars in court. That too would be considered a felony, and would also be punishable by law.

3) When it comes to the malicious slander accusations, I guess the above two would first have to be proven in court.

If Michael Granger of the Daily Herald did edit the tape to make it appear incriminating, then it would be quite obvious that all of the articles published within the first few days of the Bada Bing video release by the Daily Herald (over 30) were actually a part of The United People’s Party smear campaign, and was in fact a malicious and slanderous attack.

The fact that the Daily Herald were OBVIOUSLY in on the video release, KNOWING that the video had been in the possession of UP agents(UP Parliamentarian’s Sylvia Olivacce- Meyers family) for months, says that this was a part of a massive campaign not just to destroy Patrick Illidge, but the entire island government coalition.

The day after the tapes release Sylvia Olivacce-Meyers called for the resignation of Patrick Illidge and an investigation, but Sylvia’s family had the tape in their possession. When will the Lands Recherche be questioning Sylvia Meyers?

So we have “The Eastern Caribbean‘s largest newspaper”, doing political hit jobs for Theo Heyliger and the United People’s Party. According to sources in the Government Building, when it came to light that Alita Singh worked for The Daily Herald Newspaper, The UP/Theo Heyliger AND the harbour, people demanded her resignation from the Daily Herald. Theo Heyliger is alleged to have confronted the Editor/owner of the Daily Herald, and theaten to pull all Wathey/UP funded ads from the paper, if they did not keep Alita on at the Herald.

And the Wathey’s Own a HUGE percentage of St Maarten, so the Daily Herald could not afford to lose their ad revenue dollar, or should we say rand?

I specialize in online campaigns, SEO/SEM marketing, promotions and networking. I do SEO and SEM all day.

Let me assure the St Maarten people that the campaign against the Independents and the current government was a professional hit job, and it was lead by The Daily Herald newspaper.

First someone did their best to sanitize Theo Heyliger’s name on the internet, pulling controversial or negative articles about or by Theo Heyliger/Maurice Lake off of the Internet.

In my researches, I realized that the Daily Herald had pulled off a lot of articles concerning Theo, but appears to have promoted negative articles about Patrick Illidge, Louis Laveist, William Marlin, and the rest of the ruling coalition. Samuel Allen at SXM Times appears to have done the same to his Theo Heyliger articles.

ABCNEWS.com is a part of the ABC network in the United States. Why did ABC so fervidly cover the story of a politician on a 16 sq miles DUTCH island, who’s politics have NOTHING to do with the U.S.? Is because OUR Daily Herald was feeding them the information. Now when you click on the ABC.com search, and search for Theo being investigated by the Lands Recherche, you will see that they published the story, and their is a link, but the link is dead. You cannot access info about Theo’s investigation on that site, because someone removed the article, but even after you remove an article, the ghost of the dead link remains the same

http://abcnews.go.com/International

NOW HERE IS THE LINK THAT’S SUPPOSED TO LEAD TO THE STORY:

NOW  TRY CLICKING ON THE LINK, IT’S DEAD! Coincidence?
But if you search “patrick illidge” is link is certainly living

When The Daily Herald intentionally posted the “Bada Bing” video, while the St Maarten government was is in The Netherlands, it FED the link to DOZENS of mainstream online news site in Holland, The United States, and the rest of the Caribbean.

That is the power and the connections of owning the largest newspaper in the Eastern Caribbean.

Notice that the Daily Herald came out with dozens and dozens of articles about Patrick Illidge, saturating the media market with everything negative about Illidge and the current government.

When it was disclosed that The Daily Herald’s own Michael Granger has been implicated, and Theo Heyliger (their main source of income) was also involved, suddenly the stories trickled away.

The Daily Herald had the opportunity to come out and apologize for one (or more) of THEIR STAFF being implicated in a blackmail, slander and entrapment scheme.

They had the chance to recuse themselves from the story, since they are now a part of the blackmail investigation.

They had the chance to explain to the St Maarten people the role that they played in the entrapment.

The least the Caribbean’s most biased paper could have done, was cover the revelation that the Leader of the Opposition United People’s Party, Theo Heyliger was implicated in the Bada Bing fiasco, with the same relish that they covered the “Bada Bing” blackmail tape of Patrick Illidge.

Times have changed.

The Daily Herald might be the Eastern Caribbean’s largest newspaper, but the SXM ONLINE NEWS NETWORK pulls in more views and readers per day.

We have the largest online network in the Eastern Caribbean, with millions in the network

The Daily Herald can no longer be used by the SXM Democratic Party OR the United People’s Party to suppress the truth, because after four years of blogging, people are now realizing that there is an alternative.

People are now setting up their own alternative blogs.

The times, they are a changin’

That old Afrikaner who owns/runs the Daily Herald told me in 2010 that the politicians controlled the stories in the paper. He told me before he knew who I really was, and what I really did.

It is alleged that certain political party’s have their own blackmail videos, but these videos are of the Owner of the Daily Herald’s SON in VERY compromising positions, so one does not wonder why The Daily Herald jumps when certain politicians tell them to.

There’s a very good chance that The Daily Herald too are being blackmailed, and that’s why they have to dance to Theo’s tune.

Who knows what Theo has on video of the other United People’s Party members.

Everybody is asking the question, and no one in Parliament seems more nervous than the UP.

It will be fascinating when this all gets to court,

much more to come

FULL VIDEO COMING UP-Yanchi Leonard might be upset by this article, but then again, I’m upset for Yanchi Leonard throwing that tantrum at Parliament today, storming out of the meeting. I met him in the lobby, and I asked him if he stormed out as a protest. He claimed that he had to got to the bathroom. Now watch the video and tell me if he didn’t storm out of there. Like I said on Edwin Gumbs program, lots of theatrics and histrionics, but very little being done. The U.P. want to sanction Rudolph Samuel, president of Parliament for starting the meeting late on Friday. But twice now I’ve seen U.P. Parliamentarians disrespect their fellow parliamentarians, today and when they walked out on Minister of Health Cornelius de Weever, because Dr. De Weever had chosen to answer to questions orally.

1) Neither Patrick Illidge nor Roland Duncan are under investigation right now, so you are doing your St Maarten people a great disservice when you insinuate anything other than that. Yanchi YOU know, that YOUR boss and LEADER, Theo Heyliger is under investigation for the bribing of those three police officers: Officer R. Officer W. and Officer B….I know who they are, you are a former police officer, you know who they are.

Patrick Illidge has NOT been questioned in the Bada Bing case, but YOUR leader, Leader of the United People’s Party, Theo Heyliger has been questioned by the Lands Recherche AND the prosecutors office in the case.

Yanchi, you are trying to feed the St Maarten people BULLSHIT!

If it offends you so greatly, to go to Holland, because you don’t want to be considered corrupt, then you would have resigned from the United Peoples Party a long time ago, because as you can read in the below article, the Dutch have called YOUR LEADER, Theo Heyliger, a corrupt crook, a criminal, a mafiaboss, and Mr 10%.

St Maarten expand bribery probe of Opposition leader

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 | 12:10 PM

PHILIPSBURG, St Maarten (AP) — Authorities in St Maarten are investigating the leader of the island’s main opposition party following allegations that he asked the manager of a strip club to help blackmail a fellow legislator.

Solicitor General Taco Stein said late Monday that officials expanded the probe after local media reported that United People’s Party leader Theo Heyliger allegedly sought to blackmail legislator Patrick Illidge so he could break the current ruling coalition and seize control of government.

Illidge is an independent parliamentarian but forms part of St Maarten’s governing coalition.

He appeared in a recently publicised video as seeming to accept stacks of money from the manager of the Bada Bing strip club as they discussed business permits.

Heyliger did not respond to requests for comment.

Attorney General Denies Giving UP Leader Preferential Treatment — Heyliger was questioned at his Home in Guana Bay.

Philipsburg:— The Attorney General of St. Maarten Taco Stein denies the allegation made by several persons including politicians that the leader of the United Peoples Party and Former Deputy Prime Minister Theodore Heyliger was given preferential treatment by the national detectives that are investigating the alleged bribery involving Member of Parliament Patrick Illidge and Bada Bing strip club owner Jaap van den Heuvel.
According to information provided to SMN News, the detectives working under the helm of Ademar Doran chose to interrogate Heyliger at his home because they did not want the media to get the word that they had spoken to Heyliger on Tuesday. When SMN News confronted Deputy Attorney General Taco Stein for an explanation on where the interrogation took place, Stein said that the national detectives tried to reach Heyliger by phone and he was not responding to their calls. He said they got word from Parliament that Heyliger was off island and they were also tipped off when he returned to the island but when the detectives called his phone Heyliger still did not respond. Stein said that the detectives then decided to go to Heyliger’s home in Guana Bay and they found the UP leader at home and decided that since both parties were there they would interrogate him at his home because it was convenient for both parties.

When SMN News asked the Deputy Attorney General why his office or the office of the Prosecutor chose to withhold the information from the media and the public in general for two days after they questioned Heyliger, Stein said they do not see the need to inform the media or the people of St. Maarten as to who they speak to on the case, and where these interviews took place. He said a press release was issued two days later when several other witnesses were also heard.

When SMN News asked Stein where was the Minister of Justice Roland Duncan, Minister of TEATT Romeo Pantophlet, and others were questioned, Stein said both Ministers were questioned at the Office of the National Detectives.

The Deputy Attorney General said that at no time they chose to give Heyliger preferential treatment. “The only reason the interview was done at Heyliger’s house was because he was not responding to the phone calls made to his phone, secondly we needed to speak to him so we went to his home and he was there and the interview was conducted there.”

SMN News also learnt that some focus is being placed on the leader of the National Alliance because according to comments made on SMN News and what was told to the detectives by Heyliger, all politicians including the Prime Minister knew of the tape and the only person who would have benefited if Illidge is taken out of Parliament is the National Alliance since the seat MP Patrick Illidge holds will return to the National Alliance.

It should be noted that the National Detectives is also tasked with investigating the election fraud case which is sitting on their desk for the past two and half years. When asked if Heyliger was questioned on that case, Stein said that the detectives only dealt with the Bada Bing Investigation.

LAST UPDATED ( TUESDAY, 26 MARCH 2013 23:06 )

PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten – The video tape scandal involving Bada Bing owner Jaap van der Heuvel and MP Patrick Illidge has taken another turn based on statement attributed to van der Heuvel.

Van der Heuvel told the today news paper that he made the tape based on a request from the UP party leader Theo Heyliger and that MP Patrick was not taking a bribe but was in fact being repaid money he had lent to the business man.

He stated that it all started when MP Illidge gave his support to the present coalition government which removed the UP leader from power.

He Theo Heyliger had even tried to pay off MP Laville in a bid to regain his support.

That did not work van der Heuvel stated and it was at that time that Heyliger came to him for his help. Attorney General Taco Stein told our news room on Monday that this information is being looked into as well; all aimed at determining if a crime was committed.

March 11, 2013

Bada Bing owner Jaap van den Heuvel said on Monday in an interview with the English-language daily Today in St. Martin that he is the video that shows how he pays money to the independent Member of Parliament Patrick Illidge made at the request of Theo Heyliger, the leader of the opposition party UP.

Jaap van den Heuvel

“I have the recording to Theo and he has the material to the Daily Herald handed,” said Van den Heuvel over the phone from the Netherlands.

The payment to Illidge is a term for a loan that the Member in 2011 to the strip club owner was doing. Van den Heuvel said Heyliger him initially aanwreef Illidge that he had paid to obtain a license for his business which includes the restaurant Neverland belongs. ”I have denied and explained that I had borrowed money from Patrick. That’s why he regularly came to me, in order to collect installments. “

Thereupon Heyliger for one of these encounters on video capture. ”I had while Deputy Prime Minister William Marlin moot. Heyliger knew That there were problems between Marlin and Illidge. That was the only part of the video that he would use with the aim Patrick back to his side. “

Illidge was in 2010 by 593 votes to parliament elected on the list of National Alliance William Marlin’s, but he declared himself independent where he soon Heyliger led by the UP-DP coalition supported. During the so-called calypso-coup in April last year Illidge concluded an alliance with former UP leader Romain Laville and former National Alliance member Frans Richardson. The three independent MPs then formed a coalition with the National Alliance and the Democratic Party. The coup took Heyliger – said Minister of Housing, Spatial Development, Environment and Infrastructure was the first Wescot-Williams cabinet – politically sidelined since none of his group was willing his or her seat in parliament for him to give up.

“Theo was very angry about this and he spoke with many people, including me,” says Van den Heuvel. “He said he would do on return to politics. Romain Laville first he tried to buy back $ 135,000 and when that failed, he came to me to ask a favor. “

The Bada Bing owner stated that the video Heyliger told The Daily Herald had given. ”His friend Michael Granger would be the part where I pay Patrick delete.”

Granger is employed as a reporter at the newspaper. He is a former press secretary to Mary Buncamper-Molanus, which in December 2010 was forced to resign after revelations about speculation leasehold land.Granger worked in the past as an assistant for Heyliger. Granger is currently also chairman of the local carnival.

Van den Heuvel said that UP-leader Heyliger left the island just before the story by the Telegraph in the Netherlands was brought publicity. ”This is politics played. Theo wanted the fire to subside and return to his place in politics again occupy. “

Justice Minister Roland Duncan says Van den Heuvel nothing to do with this affair, although his name is mentioned in the video. The license that the picture is spoken in the strip club owner called a removal permit in 2006 for which he has paid to his case moved to a new address. The license he has never received. The paperwork has to come from the Ministry of Economic Affairs, not of Justice.

Van den Heuvel returns on Tuesday returned to St. Maarten despite the fact that the Dutch Security Service has let him know that his life may be in danger on the island.

Van den Heuvel said he has discussed the situation with Illidge. ”He was obviously very angry and disappointed. We’ve known each other for years.I know Heyliger also long. But I do not participate in political games. Can not anyone in this way the pages leave while he is innocent. I would be better off if I were to say Illidge is corrupt. But that is not so. Heyliger wants at all costs back into politics. “

“My friendship with Illidge goes back to the beginning of his political career. Our children went to the same school. He helped me when my marriage broke down and now I have this to him. I have enormous regret what I did. “

11 maart 2013

Bada Bing eigenaar Jaap van den Heuvel verklaarde op maandag in een interview met het Engelstalige dagblad Today in Sint Maarten dat hij de video waarop te zien is hoe hij geld betaalt aan het onafhankelijke parlementslid Patrick Illidge heeft gemaakt op verzoek van Theo Heyliger, de leider van de oppositie partij UP.

Jaap van den Heuvel

“Ik heb de opname aan Theo gegeven en hij heeft het materiaal aan de Daily Herald ter hand gesteld,” zei Van den Heuvel via de telefoon vanuit Nederland.

De betaling aan Illidge betreft een termijn voor een lening die het parlementslid in 2011 aan de stripclub eigenaar deed. Van den Heuvel zei dat Heyliger hem aanvankelijk aanwreef dat hij Illidge betaald had voor het verkrijgen van een vergunning voor zijn onderneming waartoe ook het restaurant Neverland behoort. “Ik heb dat ontkend en uitgelegd dat ik geld van Patrick had geleend. Dat is de reden dat hij regelmatig bij mij kwam, om termijnen te incasseren.”

Daarop stelde Heyliger voor een van deze ontmoetingen op video vast te leggen. “Ik moest daarbij vice premier William Marlin ter sprake brengen. Heyliger wist that er problemen waren tussen Marlin en Illidge. Dat was het enige deel van de video dat hij zou gebruiken met als doel om Patrick weer aan zijn kant te krijgen.”

Illidge werd in 2010 met 593 stemmen tot parlementslid verkozen op de lijst van William Marlin’s National Alliance, maar hij verklaarde zich al spoedig onafhankelijk waarbij hij de door Heyliger geleide UP-DP coalitie steunde.  Tijdens de zogeheten calypso-coup in april vorig jaar sloot Illidge een verbond met voormalig UP fractieleider Romain Laville en voormalig National Alliance-lid Frans Richardson. De drie onafhankelijke parlementariërs vormden vervolgens een coalitie met de National Alliance en de Democratic Party. De coup zette Heyliger – die minister van volkshuisvesting, ruimtelijke ontwikkeling, milieu en infrastructuur was in het eerste Wescot-Williams cabinet – politiek buiten spel omdat geen van zijn fractiegenoten bereid bleek zijn of haar zetel in het parlement voor hem op te geven.

“Theo was hierover ontzettend kwaad en hij sprak hierover met veel mensen, ook met mij,” aldus Van den Heuvel.”Hij zei dat hij alles zou doen on terug te keren in de politiek. Eerst probeerde hij Romain Laville terug te kopen voor $135,000 en toen dat niet lukte kwam hij mij om een gunst vragen.”

De Bada Bing eigenaar verklaarde voorts dat Heyliger de videobeelden aan het dagblad The Daily Herald had gegeven. “Zijn vriend Michael Granger zou het gedeelte waarop ik Patrick betaal verwijderen.”

Granger is in dienst als verslaggever bij de krant. Hij is een voormalige perssecretaris van Maria Buncamper-Molanus, die in december 2010 tot aftreden werd gedwongen na onthullingen over  speculatie met erfpachtgronden. Granger werkte in het verleden ook als assistant voor Heyliger. Granger is op het ogenblik ook voorzitter van de plaatselijke carnavalsvereniging.

Van den Heuvel zei verder dat UP-leider Heyliger het eiland verliet vlak voor het verhaal door de Telegraaf in Nederland in de publiciteit werd gebracht. “Dit is politiek gespeeld. Theo wilde het vuur laten uitwoeden en bij terugkeer zijn plaats in de politiek weer innemen.”

Justitie Minister Roland Duncan heeft volgens Van den Heuvel niets met deze affaire te maken, hoewel diens naam op de video wordt genoemd. De vergunning waarover op de beelden wordt gesproken is volgens de strip club eigenaar een zogeheten verhuisvergunning waar hij al in 2006 voor heeft betaald toe hij zijn zaak naar een nieuw adres verhuisde. De vergunning heeft hij echter nooit ontvangen. Het papierwerk moet komen van het ministerie van Economische Zaken, niet van Justitie.

Van den Heuvel keert op dinsdag terug naar St. Maarten ondanks het feit dat de Nederlandse Veiligheidsdienst hem heeft laten weten dat zijn leven mogelijk in gevaar is op het eiland.

Van den Heuvel zei dat hij de situatie met Illidge heeft besproken. “Hij was natuurlijk enorm kwaad en  teleurgesteld. We kennen elkaar al jaren. Ik ken Heyliger ook al heel lang. Maar ik doe niet mee aan politieke spelletjes. Ik kan niet iemand op deze manier op de voorpaginas laten staan terwijl hij onschuldig is. Ik zou beter af zijn als ik zou zeggen: Illidge is corrupt. Maar dat is niet zo. Heyliger wil ten koste van alles terug in de politiek.”

“Mijn vriendschap met Illidge gaat terug tot voor het begin van zijn politieke carrière. Onze kinderen gingen naar dezelfde school. Hij heeft me geholpen toen mijn huwelijk kapot ging en nu heb ik hem dit aangedaan. Ik heb enorme spijt van wat ik heb gedaan.”

THE KEY TO POLITICAL INDEPENDENCE OF A UNIFIED ST. MARTIN by theophilus f. priest

Posted on March 25, 2013. Filed under: judith roumou, ST MAARTEN, st maarten news | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Citizens of the world. There are about 60.000 – indigenous St. Martiners worldwide, including the over 15.000 who are presently residing in their homeland St. Martin (North and South)’ a 37 sq mile Caribbean island with a total population of 100.000

By definition, a Native – Indigenous St. Martiner is an individual of any race, creed, religion, or nationality born in any part of the world, who can trace his or her family tree, blood lineage, heritage, identity and prescriptive land right back to the post-slavery historical period between 1848 and 1963 in North and South St. Martin.
It’s imperative that we as a dignified St. Martin People in the months to follow do some serious soul searching and reflection on our present state of the union, as being a non-recognized, re-colonized people, reduced to a native minority in our homeland. Struggling to maitain our dignity and God given right of self-determination to finalize our spiritual, mental, cultural, socio-economic, and constitutional emancipation processed towards Sovereignity of a unified St. Martin; “ONE PEOPLE – ONE ISLAND – ONE DESTINY.”
The Historical Rights of Native Indigenous St. Martiners Worldwide must be recognized in their homeland as described in the U.N. declaration concerning Post-Colonial Rights of native people.
“conditio sine qua non” if there is to be any viable future for our sweet St. Martin land. We as a dignified St Martin people must think seriously out of the box when during the transitional period (2015-2020)
We re-negotiate our constitutional relationship with the European Union (EU) to become a full fledged constitutional democratic Ultra-peripheral unified sovereign member state with permanent – exempt status within the European Union (EU) ;
THIS IS THE PROPOSED SOVEREIGN ST MARTIN OPTION.
The conference of European member states in October 2007 consented to modify article 299 of the draft that governs the EU Treaty and the treaty of the European Community where it relates to St. Martin.
St. Martin will be able to consider a third option, that is to say negotiate a status specifically to suit the needs of an island with a unique identity.
A proposed third option for a constitutional democratic Unified St. Martin sovereign state must be presented as the original thinking out of the box, thus creating the window of opportunity for both Dutch and French to establish a unified, indigenous government structure in the form of an autonomous constitutional assembly during the transitional period will not only have as a task, the unification of French and Dutch St. Martin into one sovereign state, but will also have as its main task to prepare St. Martin to meet all criteria tobe admitted to join the EU as a sovereign full fledged ultra-peripheral member state with permanent exempt status by July 1st 2020.
This proposed political independence in the form of the sovereign St. Martin option, would entitle the citizens of St. Martin to hold St. Martin – European passports as full -fledged EU citizens.
St. Martin as a full-fledged Ultra-peripheral EU memberstate with a permanent exempt status would have legal competence as a sovereign nation to conduct international outside of the EU, also with direct participation and integration into the United Nation (U.N.) the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and other regional and international organizations.
Now considering the fact that the Conference of European member states in October 2007 consented to modify aarticle 299 of the draft governing the EU treaty and the treaty of the European COmmunity to enable St. Martin to consider a third option, that is to say negotiate a status specifically to suit the needs of an island with a unique identity is reason enough for we a St. Martin people to finally get our act together by holding an island wide constitutional referendum on the Sovereign St. Martin Option; EU membership St. Martin (North and South) will never be able to make use of its God-given right of self-determination to achieve its full socio-economic potential as a constitutional democratic unified sovereign state if was a dignified St. Martin Native people do not have the political will and courage to overcome the North-South political divide to pursue this proposed third option; THe Sovereign St. Martion Option, guided by the principle of: ONE PEOPLE – ONE STATE – ONE DESTINY
