Arrest of Regina Labega, Fabian Badejo, Edward Dest
When it comes to The Latest Bobol in the Arrest of Regina Labega, Fabian Badejo, Edward Dest and co. it’s a lot simpler than you think.
I can’t say whether they are guilty or innocent, because in my opinion jumping into politics is like jumping into a three week old garbage bin, how can you not get dirty?
The last time I saw Regina Labega and Edward Dest’s name together on the front page was several years ago during the Tourism Bureau or Per Diem scandal.
At that time, someone who I’ve met in Holland Bas Roorda was supposed to have fled the island, because he was receiving death threats for being a Dutch spy.
According to media sources then, someone had pointed a laser at his house, and Miguel de Weever’s car was fire bombed, into keeping him silent.
This is not the time to get into the ethics of Bas Roorda, or his own allegations of misdeeds and corruption, this is more about trying to figure out why the latest arrests happened.
The latest arrests happened because the SXMOM, Sint Maarten Prosecutors Office or Openbaar Ministerie are cheap pawns who are easily bribed, blackmailed or in order to attain political favors do political hit jobs.
The St Maarten Prosecutors Office is so corrupt and inept themselves, that they could not even investigate the Buncampers home without committing crimes themselves.
At that time someone from the Prosecutors Office actually entered the home and used their camera phone (Van der Wolp) to take photos of confidential information.
The prosecutors’ of course after years of pursuing the Buncampers whenever they were ordered to by the local politicians or criminal bosses, lost their case against the Buncampers.
I believe the same is going to happen with this new case.
It doesn’t matter how many fancy names the Prosecutors and Investigators give these cases.
Since they are all in the same sewer, everyone has dirt on everyone else, and this case is going to fall through just like the rest of them.
Having dealt with the local Prosecutors who entered my home with warrants, and spent hours taking photos of catboxes and catshit before killing my animals, I would not put anything past them.
It must suck to be the local Prosecutors and Judges, never knowing when the next shoe will drop, and when they will be the ones in handcuffs.
