Heavy criticism from VVD regarding mutual arrangements with CAS countries

THE HAGUE - The VVD parliamentary group has expressed significant doubts about the feasibility of the "mutual arrangements" with Curaçao, Aruba, and Sint Maarten, which State Secretary Alexandra Van Huffelen presented last month as an alternative to the rejected Kingdom law Caribbean Body for Reform and Development (COHO). 


Representing the largest governing party, Roelien Kamminga confronted the minister today during a committee debate, highlighting the numerous weaknesses in the agreement that was reached. "The oversight appears to be weak, the enforceability remains unclear, and I would describe the approach to resolving disputes as outright naive. Unfortunately, our past experiences with this matter have taught us that trust is good, but control is better," expressed the VVD's concerns.
