Wim van Vemde heads RST

POSTED: 01/23/12 6:31 PM

GREAT BAY/ WILLEMSTAD – Wim van Vemde has been appointed leader of the Kingdom Collaboration Team (RST). His appointment follows an agreement during the Judicial Four-country Consultation on Thursday between St. Maarten, the Netherlands, Aruba and Curacao in Willemstad. Van Vemde is the former Chief Commissioner of Police in Gooi and Vechtstreek in the Netherlands.
Justice Ministers Ivo Opstelten, Arthur Dowers and Elmer Wilsoe took part in the consultation; Roland Duncan stayed home ill and was represented by his Secretary General Ligia Stella.


St. Maarten did not sign the protocol about information and communication technology for the judicial system, because there is still no agreement about the technology it will use for the cooperation with Curacao and the BES-islands. Aruba did not sign this protocol either because it has a well-functioning security system in place already.

Minister Duncan followed the consultation via telephone. Stella said that St. Maarten supports cooperation in the field of information and communication technology.
St. Maarten, the Netherlands and Curacao approved the protocol for the flexible deployment of the Royal Marechaussee – the Dutch royal military police – until June 30, 2015.
