WILLEMSTAD – Members of the Dutch Parliament for the coalition party D66 wants the Dutch cabinet to send the naval vessel Zr. Ms. Karel Doorman again to the Caribbean. The rapid increase in the number of infections on St. Maarten and Aruba gives cause for this, the party believes.
The Karel Doorman had also been in the area for some time from the end of April. Navy officers provided assistance on Sint Maarten with, among other things, the transport of the sick and the maintenance of public order. The ship returned to the Netherlands at the end of June.
