Oranjestad- In a press release issued by RCN, the Dutch Government informs that they are asking the opinion of the State Attorney (Landsadvocaat, editor) to look at the agreement which the Government of St. Eustatius meant to sign with Nustar, outlining (among others), the financial agreement between the two.
According to the press release, it is in the interest of the development and future of the Public Entity St. Eustatius and its population to reach good contractual agreements with Nustar.
“All efforts are directed towards reaching accurate and legally correct agreements in order to reach clarity for all parties about the content and scope of the new arrangements. This is a 10-year agreement that not only touches St. Eustatius and NuStar but also areas of several ministries”, reads the text of the press release distributed by RCN.
According to the release “it is therefore, that the Ministry of the Interior Affairs and Kingdom Relations (BZK) has asked the State Attorney to look at the agreement and provide an advise”.
The BES-Reporter will write more extensively about the issue which has arisen with the signing of the agreement, based on information received from both Commissioner Charles Woodley and DP councilman Koos Sneek.
