PHOTOS: ILLEGAL FILLING, THEY SAY FRANS RICHARDSON IS BEHIND IT, THAT’S WHY HE CAN’T BE SEEN IN PARLIAMENT ALL PHOTOS JUDITH ROUMOU


It’s St Maarten‘s worst kept secret that Frans Richardson is the one behind the filling of the sand, at the Saltpond, behind the zoo.


Well that according to everyone who’s anyone in government.
St Maarteners were outraged when it was brought to their attention that the areas of the pond that had been preserved for historical value, were being filled in to facilitate the building of a cricket stadium, and a drag strip.
The public was even more outraged, when it was leaked that there had been no permits issued, and that no one in government was claiming responsibility.
Theo cast the blame on WIlliam Marlin, saying that sand was illegally taken from the harbour.
William Marlin it appears, has cast the blame back to the Harbour, and Mingo.
I’ve been at Parliament for two days, and this will be the third, waiting for Frans Richardson to show up, so that I can ask him if HE is the one responsible for the illegal filling.
Frans has been a no show at Parliament, and one can only wonder why.
Everyone who’s anyone in politics are saying that Frans began the project, and William Marlin chose to turn his head.
But we can’t just go on speculations, we would have to ask Frans Richardson himself.
After all, it is a yes or no question, and should be quite simple to answer.
Above are photos of the illegal filling at a historical section of our Great Salt Pond (Soualiga). Environmentalists are also raising questions about the further destruction of the Pond’s flora and fauna, and the potential for further flooding, once St Maarten re-enters the rainy season.
