Justice reinforcements sworn in in Sint Maarten

PHILIPSBURG--On Friday May 1 Minister of Justice Anna Richardson, welcomed and swore in a number of Royal Netherlands Marechaussee Officers, Police Officers and Royal Dutch Marines who arrived on April 27th, 2020 from the Netherlands and will be here in St. Maarten until August 2020. 
 
All had been tested for COVID-19 before their departure from the Netherlands and again once they arrived in Sint Maarten.
 
The request for military assistance was made to ensure that public order and public safety are further maintained. Prime Minister Silveria Jacobs, Chair of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), was consulted in the request which was formally submitted through His Excellency Governor Eugene Holiday. Additionally, military assistance will serve to support our local law enforcement officers, who have all been working diligently to maintain a strong presence throughout our districts enforcing compliance of the lockdown measures.
 
As such, the assistance will also help to bolster current efforts by our local police force in maintaining a “zero-tolerance” approach to those who show blatant disregard for the lockdown regulations. It must be emphasized that under the current measures amidst this global public health crisis, congregations of people in large groups as well as driving on the public road without authorization on lockdown days will not be tolerated and those in violation will be dealt with according to the law.
 
Minister Richardson expressed her appreciation on behalf of the Council of Ministers (COM) and by extension the people of Sint Maarten, to all those involved in supporting the request for assistance, in particular the Dutch Minister of Defence Ank Bijleveld. In addition, Minister Richardson thanked the officers who have come to assist our country during this very challenging time.
 
“I commend and applaud the efforts of law enforcement, whom despite working tirelessly each and every day understand their civic duty and continue to make the best out of our current situation. It is therefore important that all citizens and residents return the favor by continuing to persevere and do their part by adhering to the measures put forth by CPS and the EOC during this lockdown period,” said Minister Richardson.
