DEN HAAG – The news of the arrest of Member of Parliament Frans Richardson has the attention of Prime Minister Leona Romeo-Marlin; she stated, “It is regrettable that as a young country we find ourselves in this situation once again, where the integrity of the highest body (Parliament) is being tested. However I have confidence in our Country’s legal system and am convinced that the truth will eventually emerge from the investigations by the Justice Department”.
