Farewell party for Chief Prosecutor

The Daily Herald writes that Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Caribbean Netherlands bade farewell on Friday to David van Delft with a reception in the “Mangazina di Rei” on Bonaire. Van Delft has officially stepped down as Chief Prosecutor for Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba (BES-islands). For a period of four years in the nineties Van Delft was Public Prosecutor in Curaçao. In 2007 he returned to the former Netherlands Antilles as prosecutor and “Chef de Mission” on Bonaire and since the constitutional transition on 10-10-‘10, Chief Public Prosecutor of the BES-islands. Under his leadership, the prosecution formed a new organisation with offices on three islands. It should be noted that these offices are 900 kilometres apart. “Van Delft literally built up the Prosecutor’s Office of the Caribbean Netherlands. The organisation stands and is now a solid foundation on which to further be built by his successor,” a press release stated. Several people addressed Van Delft on Friday, including Attorney General Guus Schram, Chief of Police for the BES-islands Hildegard Buitink, correspondent for the Extra newspaper Boi Antoin and former Lieutenantgovernor Glenn Thodé. Van Delft will be succeeded per July 1, 2014, by Henry Hambeukers who, since August 1, 2013, has been working at the Prosecutor’s Office of Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba.
