PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - Last week, Member of Parliament (MP) Claret Connor made presentations of the English version of the Constitution and the other Organic laws to both the Prison and the St. Maarten Philipsburg Jubilee Library. 38 Organic Laws were recently compiled in book form by Info Media Foundation.
The representatives of the Prison welcomed the initiative by MP Connor adding that the publications will be added to their library as a valuable resource thereby providing among others the inmates access to essential knowledge. The St. Maarten Philipsburg Jubilee Library also expressed gratitude for the donation on behalf of its patrons.
MP Connor further encourages the community to obtain a series of the publications to better familiarize themselves about the laws as well as the various systems that regulates the functioning of government and related institutions.
