Broad based committee to review outstanding BTA applications

POSTED: 03/17/11 2:37 PM

St. Maarten – The Public Prosecutors Office has completed its criminal investigation around the implementation of the Brooks Tower Accord. Some 1, 100 files were scrutinized and returned and will subsequently reviewed by a committee that will have representation from every Ministry except Public Housing, Physical Planning, Infrastructure and the Environment (VROMI).

Ronald De Graaf – a local immigration official – will chair the committee, which is charged with vetting the 1, 100 dossiers and other files before providing the minister with an advice. The decree installing the committee should be finished by the weekend.

“All ministries have been invited to designate a person so everybody has been invited to share in the joys of deciding on whether people get permits or not and I hope to have the committee functioning by early next week,” Duncan said.
