JUDGE SMID STRIKES AGAIN...WILL HE DO THE RIGHT THING?



The Dutch Island of St. Maarten Involved in Human Smuggling--Will Judge Smid Act Upon This Travesty? Only Time Will Tell!



PHILIPSBURG/St. Maarten--Three female immigration officers who worked at Princess Juliana International Airport (PJIA) face allegations of involvement in human smuggling, accepting of bribes and membership of a criminal organisation.


Prosecutor Dikran Sarian said the women had made St. Maarten a “transhipment point for illegal immigrants” and asked for 145 days, one year suspended with two years’ probation, and a US $3,000 fine for suspect S.A.M. (27).


For V.V.M.S. (23) Sarian asked for a 146-day prison sentence on top of a two-year suspended jail term with two years’ probation, 100 hours of community service and a $1,000 fine. For S.M.R. he asked the judge to impose a 48-day prison sentence and 6 months suspended with two years’ probation, 240 hours of community service and a $3,000 fine.


The women were the first to appear before
Judge Rick Smid on Tuesday. They will be followed today, Wednesday, by five other suspects in this large scale case. The two main suspects, A.C.H. (28) of St. Eustatius and Y.F.J. (26), will be tried on Thursday. The three officers all denied Tuesday that they had done anything wrong in performing their duties at the airport between January 2006 and the days they were arrested in October and November 2006.



All three admitted they had received considerable amounts of money from alleged leader of the illegal operations A.C.H. But, they said, this was not in return for services, but just because this wealthy man liked to flaunt his money. The Prosecutor’s Office is accusing the Immigration officers of having admitted Chinese and nationals of the Dominican Republic access to the Netherlands Antilles without their having the proper travel documents, and of helping them in travelling to the U.S. Virgin Islands.


The women said they had merely followed instructions by their superiors in which it was stated they should let through Chinese nationals who were in transit in St. Maarten while travelling to other islands in the Caribbean, even if they were travelling without visas and tickets to their final destinations.


According to the women’s defence lawyers, this policy was according to a ministerial decree that was issued, but Sarian said this decree had been replaced by a new policy because it had been misused for the illegal entry of undocumented persons into St. Maarten. It was then stated that persons travelling from so-called high-risk countries such as China, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Guyana, but also countries in Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, travelling without a visa should be refused at all times.


According to the Prosecutor, the three female Immigration officers had given undocumented travellers from China access to the country on the indication of A.C.H. and with the assistance of other persons working at PJIA. The suspect’s lawyers all pleaded for the acquittal of their clients for lack of evidence.


Judge Smid will be handing down his ruling in these cases on April 24. (Let's see what Judge Smid does this time...I'm not holding my breath with that degenerate scumbag.)

We all know Queen Bea is the boss of Smid. Again Judge Smid will release the corrupt airport officers from guilty charges based on the Queen Bee's decree. The Dutch law allows the bribe money to be treated as the transplant fee as the French also probablily do the same thing. All the Queen cares about the prostitution economy. The South Americans prefer more Chinese prostitues with silky complexions. The Queen is the dirty hand.

Michelle,

Please refresh my memory. What did Judge Smid do again as per Natalee?

Michelle said...

He didn't do anything to Natalee per se...he let JVDS out of jail and the next day he was off to Holland. I don't trust ANY of those judges down there. That's my point.

Rick Smid is the epitomy of a corrupt judge. This is the guy who ordered Joran held another 30 days and then fled back to Curacao and faxed in a reversal of his decision within hours. He is truly the scum of the earth.

The Queen is the most evil Dutch sinner. She had led the whole Netherlands and Aruba to commmit rapes and murders against foreign guests with the encouragement of no prosecutions. Time and time the queen did just that. Her righteous son hates her so much, he wants to become the new King, to restore the Dutch normal rule and order. The church bishops had asked to queen to give up her throne to her son to save the Kingdom from destruction. Maybe the queen will reverse her insanity and fire Rick Smid and put Joran back in jail to keep herself in power.

Crown Prince Willem-Alexander is the only hope for the depressed Dutch people and the dying Dutch Kingdom. He would assume the throne under the title of King William IV of the Netherlands upon his mother's eventual abdication strongly recommended by the Dutch Reformed Church. Crown Prince Willem is a born again Christian. He thinks Aruba is corrupt to its bones.

The new King believes justice for all, including all the American tourists. The Dutch judges are serving at pleasure of his Majesty. King William will retire all the corrupt judges, especially Rick Smid and Bob Witt. He will also suspended the law license of Paulus van der Sloot to restore the global confidence on the mighty code of Dutch law. The King's new decree is declared as that you will not lie before the King, the judges and the police. Joran will be sent back to prison in Aruba for trial and the due process. The "No Body, No Case" claim will be banished from the Dutch law to protect the raped and murdered victims.
