St. Maarten – During an animated yet intimate reception at the Pasanggrahan Hotel drs. Marsie Jonkers said goodbye yesterday to St. Maarten where he served two years as the head of the branch office of the Dutch Representative in Aruba, Curacao and St. Maarten. The Dutch Representative, Gerard van der Wulp, introduced Jonkers’ successor, drs. Gert Versluis who will remain on the island for the next three years.

Jonkers is now the head of the branch office in Curacao. “I am happy to have him closer to me, given his previous experience at the directorate of Kingdom relations,” Van der Wulp said.

Versluis built his career at the Ministries of Justice and Home Affairs. “I managed to convince him to come here for the next three years,” van der Wulp said.

The Dutch representative also introduced Bianca van der Lee as the new policy advisor for the office in St. Maarten. Van der Lee comes from the Dutch government information service RVD.

Marsie Jonkers said in a brief address that he had enjoyed working on St. Maarten. “This is a beautiful country,” he said. He praised office assistant Anouschka Devid for her work.

Governor drs. Eugène Holiday, Finance Minister Roland Tuitt, Parliament President Rodolphe Samuel, Chief Prosecutor Hans Mos, Solicitor-General Taco Stein and Chief Commissioner Peter de Witte were among the guests that attended the reception.
