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.

MP Connor added that as a knowledge-based community, 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.

MP Connor lauded Former Prime Minister Marcel Gumbs and the members of Info Media Foundation for taking up this initiative aimed at educating the masses about the laws of land.

Three things cannot be long hidden, the sun, the moon and the truth. There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth. NOT GOING ALL THE WAY and Not starting.
