Laville’s scholarships do not exist

POSTED: 07/15/14 2:50 PM

St. Maarten – Independent Member of Parliament Romain Laville said his goodbyes to politics last week with a full page color ad in the Daily Herald. However, the vice-president of parliament stretched the truth beyond breaking point in his advertisement. Among the “achievements” he credits himself for in the ad are the memorandum of understanding with his native Dominica that offers “free scholarships for nursing and agriculture.”

Since education is the domain of Minister Patricia Lourens-Philip (Education, Culture, Youth and Sport) this newspaper asked her how many students are eligible for these scholarships.

The minister’s answer was brief and to the point: “This has not materialized.”
