Van Putten fights legal summons to retract white collar crime statement

POSTED: 03/30/11 12:44 PM

St. Maarten – Social and political activist Eldridge van Putten is facing legal challenges after he labeled the actions of Royal Resorts Chief executive Officer Richard Corso as “white collar crime.” Royal Resorts is the management company of the former Pelican Resort Club, now named Simpson Bay Resort and Marina in Pelican Key.

Corso’s attorney Mr. J.G. Bloem has summoned Van Putten to retract this statement, but as things stand now, that is not likely to happen. “I intend to defend myself vigorously and want to show www.health-canada-pharmacy.com/products.html that I am not the only one who finds the conduct of Mr. Corso at Pelican akin to white collar crime,” he wrote in an email to this newspaper.

Van Putten intends to collect the text of all letters to the editor written by Pelican Resort timeshare owners to the local newspapers. Many of these letters, Van Putten says, express the same sentiments. “The statements I made, specifically about white collar crime, came directly from timeshare owners that were published in St. Maarten.”
