Island Council St. Maarten is talking bout TelEm again

The threat of the in New York established The Merritt Group with a lawsuit against TelEm Group of Companies was the most important subject in today’s Island Council meeting. Opposition party National Alliance (NA) requested the meeting.

The Merritt Group is demanding almost 2.5 million dollars in commission for a loan of 78 million dollars of the Citibank Group that they fixed for TelEm and St. Maarten International Telecommunications Company Smitcoms between 2005 and 2007. Smitcoms decided in October 2007 to break the contract with The Merritt Group.

NA-leader William Marlin said that the media knew about the information on the threatening lawsuit, but that the BC has not officially informed the public. The subject was going to be discussed in the Island Council on June 25, but this meeting was postponed due to no quorum. The entire Democratic Party didn’t show up.
