The lecture entitled "Revisiting the Constitution" will be held at the USM Lecture Hall from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. USM is organizing these free lectures to inform the general public.

"The Draft Constitution for Country St. Maarten is an important document and as such the people must be aware of its contents and its implications to them as citizens," said USM President Josianne Fleming Artsen.

The St. Maarten Constitution is being lauded as one of the most progressive in the Kingdom of the Netherlands since it was modeled after that of Aruba, the most recent country in the Kingdom to have a constitution with improvements.

One of the important aspects in the constitution is how elected officials are dealt with if they are arrested or convicted of a crime. Changes to this aspect have been recently made and keynote speaker Mr. Groeneveldt will be discussing this matter.

The Central Committee of Government is scheduled to handle the revised constitution within short.

The general public is invited to attend this important lecture and be informed on the matter. Mr. Groeneveldt has been one the many legal minds working on the constitution from the inception.

The third of the lecture series entitled "Revisiting the Constitution" will be held on June 22, 2010 at the USM. All the lectures are FREE. The USM LECTURE HALL has a seating capacity for about 200 people and attendants are urged to be on time.
