By Wade Alexander Bailey:Phillipsburgh Sint Maarten N.A.
Sint Maarten is a former colony of the Netherlands. The island is a Mafia haven . It is also a trans shipment point for Cocaine from Colombia destined for America and the Netherlands. On Sint Maarten the present government and past governments have helped to facilitate criminal activity. On Sint Maarten it is illegal to operate a brothel, prostitution in any form is a crime under the present legal system. Allthough the law state that prostitution is a crime the government has subverted the laws that they are supposed to uphold and have created, a culture of illegal prostitution and drug running to flourish. A cursory examination of houses of prostitution on the island will reveal, that key figures in government are connected some peripherally and some directly to prostitution. A case in point is the granting of licenses to operate a Bar and Restaurant the owner according to the law can operate a Bar and Restaurant, and they are "only", allowed to have Topless Dancers. The "dancers", are not allowed to sleep on the premises, all forms of prostitution in such an establishment is prohibited by law. In practisd once persons obtain a licnse to operate a bar and restaurant, wherein topless dancing is allowed they, go to Coloumbia or the Dominican Republic and they lure women under false pretenses to Sint Maarten and coerce them, sometimes threaten and force them into prostitution which is facilitated by the "government" of Sint Maarten.
