Connor:Know the law

PHILIPSBURG - Member of Parliament Claret Connor (United People's party) presented copies of the English translation of St. Maarten’s Constitution and the other organic laws to the Pointe Blanche prison and Philipsburg Jubilee Library.
 
The translation of the 38 organic laws was recently compiled in book form by Info Media Foundation.
 
Representatives of both institutions thanked Connor for his contribution.
 
The MP encouraged residents to acquire their copies of the law books to become familiar with the laws and systems that regulate the functioning of Parliament, Government and related institutions. "Being insightful about our laws places our constituents in a better position to critique and have meaningful dialogue about the role and functioning of Parliament, for example," Connor said. He commended former Prime Minister Marcel Gumbs and Info Media for undertaking the translation project.
