PHILIPSBURG – On September 26, the people of St. Maarten went to the polls to elect a new parliament.

The Prosecutor’s Office, meanwhile, received indications that voters may have been bribed to cast their vote for a particular party or person.

In light of this new development, the Prosecutor’s Office is calling on anyone who has information about any suspicious situation concerning vote buying that may have taken place, or who were approached to accept money or any other type of goods or favors, to contact the National Detectives Agency (Landsrecherche) at +1721-526-2242.
