Mos: “I see no task at this time”

POSTED: 04/11/12 2:18 PM

St. Maarten – Public Prosecutor Hans Mos does not believe the allegations being made against former President of the St. Peters Community Council Maurice Lake and his board “need to be solved in the realm of a criminal investigation.” The remark was made on Tuesday, when he also confirmed that he’d received his copy of a letter sent to the Soualiga Movement of Social Justice by Lake’s lawyer Roland Zwanniken. That letter, dated April 4, demands that the movement and three people – Reginal Arrindell, Rene Wilson and Natasha Manuel – either provide proof of their charges or retract their allegations and insinuations within five days.
“Neither the organization nor any of the individuals have filed a formal complaint here. At least I have not seen anything. I also don’t think these allegations need to be solved in the realm of a criminal investigation. We are the ultimate destination and I see no task at this time for the police of for the public prosecutor,” Mos said.
Zwanniken acknowledges that the five day deadline has arrived and said he now plans to discuss further steps with his client because the movement and the three people in the letter have not supplied their evidence. Zwanniken also said that Wilson refused to accept his copy of the letter when it was delievered by courier at 3:15 p.m. on April 5 and that both Arrindell and Manuel refused to give their address when contacted by his office.
