    ODM advises residents to monitor media for Waste Haulage Company Schedules for Pre-Hurricane Clean-Up

    The Office of Disaster Management (ODM) is calling on residents to monitor the print media (Daily Herald) for the pre-hurricane clean-up schedules of Waste Haulage Companies.

    Hurricane forecasters have already indicated that the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season will be a busy one.

    The Ministry of Public Housing, Spatial Planning, Environment, and Infrastructure (Ministry of VROMI) announced early June about the pre-hurricane clean-up that will be carried out by Waste Haulage Companies.

    All construction work sites should be cleared of excess debris and hazardous materials in preparation for the hurricane season. Contractors are responsible for the clean-up of their worksites.

    Homeowners are advised to safeguard their neighborhoods by cleaning up and removing materials from their yards that may cause damage to nearby properties.

    This includes trimming trees, moving bikes, lawn furniture, grills, propane tanks, building materials, etc. Please store all materials or have them fastened down in the proper manner in a safe area.

    The community is urged to learn more about hurricane hazards and how to prepare for a storm/hurricane strike by visiting the Government website: http://www.sintmaartengov.org/hurricane where you will be able to download your “Hurricane Season Readiness Guide’ and “Hurricane Tracking Chart.”

    The storm names for the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season are:
    Bonnie, Colin, Danielle, Earl, Fiona, Gaston, Hermine, Ian, Julia, Karl, Lisa, Martin, Nicole, Owen, Paula, Richard, Shary, Tobias, Virginie, and Walter.

    Listen to the Government Radio station – SXMGOV 107.9FM – for official information and news before, during and after a hurricane.

    For official weather-related information, check out the website of the Meteorological Department of St. Maarten (MDS): http://www.meteosxm.com

    ODM falls under the Fire Department (Ministry of General Affairs) and is headed by Fire Chief/Disaster Coordinator Clive Richardson.

    Remember, it only takes one hurricane to make it a bad season. Be prepared this hurricane season!

    Nature Foundation Responds to Fuel Spill at Sol

    Mid-Morning on Monday, June 13th the Nature Foundation responded to calls regarding a fuel spill occurring in the area of Cay Bay. Upon investigation it was confirmed that the spill originated from Sol. Foundation staff and Sol crews tried to mitigate the spill using fuel absorbent supplies, however the extent of the incident and the difficult weather conditions caused much of the pollution to be washed out to sea.

    “We received a call from a concerned boat charter company to let us know a significant amount of fuel could be seen in the water as they were passing Cay Bay. We were able to respond to the call within 15 minutes, but by the time we arrived a wide slick of fuel could be found more than 1.8 Kilometers (1.1miles) away from shore. It was unclear how much product was able to enter the environment during this incident as the fuel had mixed with the water and spread while it was pushed away from the area,” stated the Nature Foundation.

    17th Nature Foundation To New Fuel Spill The Latest

    In response to the incident Sol has released the following statement, “Sol Antilles N.V. (Sol) confirms that on June 13, 2022, at approximately 8:00 a.m., an incident occurred during the connection of the new white oils receiving pipeline at the Sol Cole Bay depot in Cay Bay. Due to the swift reaction of the internal response team, the operation was immediately halted, and majority of the spill was subsequently contained.

    As part of its overall contingency planning, Sol has an emergency response team of trained and certified staff and has oil spill equipment readily available should it be required. There was no harm to any personnel, however, a small quantity of fuel escaped out to sea. All other on-site activities were ceased immediately as a precautionary measure. The maintenance activities have since all been completed without any further issues.

    “At Sol, we take pride in conducting our business with our business core values of Safety, Integrity, Community and Respect at the helm and as such, we are currently engaged with the relevant regulatory agencies and stakeholders to keep them fully abreast of the situation and of the mitigation measures put in place. These stakeholders include the Nature Foundation, The Coast Guard, the Department of Maritime Affairs and the Inspection Department of VROMI. Sol’s main focus is the protection of the health, safety and security of our employees, customers and the communities within which we operate.”

    17th Nature Foundation To New Fuel Spill The Latest

    Due to the high winds and waves during the day the majority of spill that was not contained was pushed away from the island quickly, but dive schools reported remnants of fuel still at nearby dive sites as late as 5pm the same day.

    While the foundation was monitoring the spill, mapping the affected areas, and attempting to absorb thick patches found on the surface many animal species were spotted. An endangered Green Sea Turtle, several sea birds, and flying fish were all seen on the surface of the water in and among the pollutants.

    “Sol was able to immediately halt their activities and activated their response plan. As part of this workers deployed absorbent materials to help control what was lost into the sea. However, whether it is present in St. Maarten shores or not, fuel spills like this have a distinct and long-lasting impact on the ecosystem,” explained the foundation, “Not only can it directly harm the animals that encounter it, but it also has long lasting effects on food sources and can disrupt biological growth. It also won’t just disappear; this fuel will travel with the wind and waves and could impact other Caribbean islands.”

    Foundation staff continued to monitor the area throughout the week and saw no further signs of pollutants entering the water. The Nature Foundation urges that any company working with environmentally hazardous materials to have equipment and protocols in place to handle inevitable issues such as oil or fuel spills. Including contacting the foundation as soon as possible in the event of emergency in order to mitigate the impacts on our precious environment.

    “With major environmental incidents involving fuel or oil happening at varying locations in 2010, 2014, 2018, 2021, and now 2022 it is clear that there is a need for a change in policy and regulation when it comes to dealing with these hazardous materials,” stated the Nature Foundation.

    Court of Justice of the Islands takes action against Investico/De Groene Amsterdammer/Argos exposé

    Court of Justice of the Islands takes action

    The Joint Court of Justice of Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten and Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba has ruled against the answers attributed to it in the investigative document of Investico/De Groene Amsterdammer, and the subsequent radio program Argos. The press judge wrote in the Antilliaans Dagblad that several judgments were incorrectly reproduced.

    At the end of May it became clear that research platform Investico , together with De Groene Amsterdammer and radio program Argos , were working on a piece about the gambling sector in Curaçao. They tried to prevent publication of that document by means of summary proceedings , but the judge did not agree.

    Three days later, the piece “ Roulette with the rule of law ” was published, followed a little later by the Argos radio broadcast . As a result of the investigation , the ChristenUnie submitted parliamentary questions , the trade association Coga in Curaçao called it exposé character assassination .

    The Court itself has now also responded to the document. In an article on the front page of the Antilliaans Dagblad yesterday, press judge Sigmar Carmelia names various matters that she believes are incorrect:

    “The Court has previously been in contact with Ms Kuijpers, who put a number of questions to the Court. It is striking that the answers are unfortunately not complete, and on some points have been incorrectly incorporated in the document. This does not do justice to the response of the Court to Mrs Kuijpers’ questions.”

    Press judge Sigmar Carmelia
    Court of Justice opposes Investico over Cramm
    In the article by Investico / De Groene Amsterdammer and the radio broadcast by Argos , ample attention was paid to the vicissitudes surrounding blogger Nardy Cramm. The Dutch journalist indicated in the documents that the gambling sector on the island is making her life miserable because she opposes the current system of master licensees and sub licenses. In addition, she continues to call that system illegal, which is against the sore leg of the sector, which indicates that it is fully legal.

    In the article in the Antilliaans Dagblad, the press judge mainly opposes the documents relating to Cramm. For example, the documents of the Dutch investigative journalists stated that a judge had not excused himself in a case against Cramm. This while that judge previously worked as a lawyer for the gambling sector. The press judge wrote that he had clearly indicated to Investico / De Groene Amsterdammer / Argos that Judge Lasten had no reason to excuse himself, but that the defense could have submitted a request for challenge. It did not and during the hearing the defense did not raise the possible conflict of interest.

    Cramm, who stated in the Argos broadcast that he went into hiding abroad for fear of retaliation, is not just a blogger and journalist. She is also founder of the SBGOK foundation. That foundation conducts lawsuits against the master licensees and trust offices on the island on behalf of injured players. In the article in the Antilliaans Dagblad, the press judge nuances the comment in Argos that Cramm has lost three summary proceedings. According to the press judge, it should also have been mentioned for the balance of the piece that Cramm’s foundation SBGOK also wins lawsuits against the online gambling companies.

    Since the 2017 hurricane, the Community Development, Family & Humanitarian Affairs (CDFHA) has implemented two successful minor home repair projects as one of the recovery activities within the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labor (VSA).

    However, there were still some registered members of the community who were unable to receive assistance owing to various obstacles.

    Consequently, after much discussion, Minister Ottley deemed it necessary to assist these individuals, and on May 25, 2022, CDFHA launched the Home Repair program.

    The initiative targeted Seniors, the disabled, single parents, and unemployed parents. The program is expected to last three months.

    “Upon entering office, this project caught my attention and was immediately placed on my priority list. I found it of great importance, and I am ecstatic that the project can be carried out just in time for the hurricane season,” said Ottley.
