St. Maarten – MP Gracita Arrindell met with Lawyer Hijmans earlier this week, to discuss further preparations of the objectives to introduce a draft law on domestic violence.

Arrindell will also discuss this issue with Professor de Doelder. Doelder visited St. Maarten in 2011 to assist Minister of Justice Roland Duncan when hearings were held in 2011 regarding the Penal Code.

Contact will be made as well with other stakeholders including Safe Haven once a draft is made to get their input in the document.

”I have received a copy of the law and the explanatory notes thereto of the special law as established in the Netherlands regarding domestic and relational violence.

Domestic Violence Awareness and its consequences on society are at the front burner of many governments around the world. It was very encouraging to me and dare say to the millions of women and men around the world to hear President Barack Obama refer to the Domestic Violence Act, in his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening. It is that important of an issue,” the MP stated in a press release.
