Draft law Integrity Chamber separates administrative and criminal investigations

PHILIPSBURG – The draft law Integrity Chamber that reached Parliament on Thursday maintains “a strict separation of administrative and criminal investigations.” Parliament will handle the draft shortly – probably on Friday afternoon - since approving this legislation is a condition for the release of 550 million euros in Dutch funds for the reconstruction of St. Maarten.

The government says in the elucidation with the draft that it takes integrity issues seriously: “Careful reading if the integrity reports causes the government serious concerns about the nature of concrete abuses in the public sector. The government is faced with a double integrity problem. Lack of research causes stories to stick around whether they are correct or not and there is no objective establishment of the facts.”
