Elvis "Monster" Kuwas in Bonaire for Maximus case

WILLEMSTAD-- Elvis "Monster" Kuwas (40), the man sentenced to life imprisonment for the 2013 murder of then PS-leader and parliamentarian Helmin Magno Wiels in Curaçao, has been transferred from the maximum security prison in Vught, the Netherlands, to Bonaire.
 
The convicted triggerman in the "Magnus" case was led by heavily armed policemen with bullet proof vests and accompanied by a group of plainclothes detectives.
 
The transfer clearly has to do with the "Maximus" trial starting today, Wednesday, in Curaçao, with Kuwas expected to testify. It concerns the probe into the intellectual authors of the paid assassination.
 
Kuwas would have indicated that he wants to make a statement. His life sentence was confirmed by the High Court in The Hague and has become irrevocable.
 
For now Maximus is focussing on the man who is seen by the prosecution as the link between the executors and those who ordered the killing of Wiels. It regards Burney "Nini" Fonseca, who is serving time in the Netherlands on unrelated drugs and money laundering charges. He has opted to stay there and attend the proceedings via video conference.
 
Prosecutor in the Maximus-case Gert Rip did not want to reveal which witnesses are to be heard during the trial.

Fran├žois Fillon captures the popular vote in St. Martin

MARIGOT--Resurgent centre-right candidate François Fillon emerged as the biggest vote-getter in St. Martin capturing 1,376 votes (27.19 per cent) in the first round of France’s Presidential Election, proving here at least that allegations of paying his wife and children for fake jobs out of public money had nothing to do with his programme and did not bother those who came out to vote.
