It was a much-discussed theme in the media these months: whether or not and how to establish and organize an Integrity Chamber for St. Maarten.

Where does the idea of an Integrity Chamber for St. Maarten come from? What is the (legal) basis and relevant legislation for such an Integrity Chamber? In what way should this chamber be organized, and what tasks and powers will this chamber actually get? And what is the extent of those powers? Will there actually be the Integrity Chamber? Some of these questions cannot be answered yet, as St. Maarten is currently waiting for a new National Ordinance on the Integrity Chamber. A definitive regulation is still missing. However, we would like to share the knowledge and answers we do have. Via this link, you find a first overview based on what we already know about the Integrity Chamber for St. Maarten.
