    St. Martinus sued by students!!!

    Medical students claim their rights
    WILLEMSTAD — St. Martinus University could not count on much sympathy from the judge yesterday afternoon. Twelve
    students instituted proceedings yesterday afternoon against the university – which was forced to close down due to
    financial problems earlier this month – and may count on winning their case.

    The official verdict will be ready tomorrow, but the judge already announced that the St. Martinus University (SMU) would
    have to accede with all the students’ requests.
    With the exception of attending colleges even though, the students indeed have that right, ‘as such was superseded by
    the facts’, judge Joost Veerman concluded at the end of the session. The obtained points should be made available
    immediately, as well as the official transcripts, which the physicians under training require in order to approach another
    university to complete their study.
    Seven students stated yesterday that they had obtained their bachelor’s degree, at least complied with the requirements.
    "Their degree should be granted under the condition that they actually qualify for such."
    The students which still have to take exams on the last semester, should be given this opportunity coming Monday, and
    "the results should be made available during the morning of August 27th so that the students can register with another
    university that same day". That date was put forward as the ultimate registration date. There are medical trainings on
    many of the islands in the region. Most of the students prefer Aruba or St. Kitts.
    Arend de Winter, the attorney-at-law of St. Martinus University forwarded in his defense, as outlined in a letter to the
    students’ lawyer, that he required more time to formalize and issue the study results. The present teacher and dean
    Clinical Sciences Harold Schiff contradicted this and stated that the issuance of the study results is a matter of maximum
    two or three days.
    The problem is that the administration as well as the teachers have not received any salary since months and are
    therefore less willing to cooperate.
    Discussions with John ********* – who manages the training – have not led to anything more than that ‘a (financial)
    solution is near at hand’. The lawyer repeated that SMU is doing its utmost in the interest of the students. The judge even
    suggested an arrangement, but there was no one present on behalf of the university except for the lawyer. "They will now
    pay for it", the judge determined.
    Judge Veerman recognized the dependency of the cooperation of the staff: "I can only state in this matter that I hope the
    teachers will comply with the verdict." If they do not, then this is primarily a responsibility of the St. Martinus University.
    For that matter, in that connection the SMU can count on a considerable penalty in tomorrow’s verdict.
    Insecure future
    It seems that the St. Martinus University is facing an insecure future. As of the beginning of the training until the closing
    down, the university barely succeeded in attracting less than 100 students, and this appeared insufficient to survive. After
    all, in addition to the administration, the institute also required ten to twelve teachers for the various courses.
    SMU has encountered financial problems from the start. In April last year, it seemed that a new shareholder, Maple Leaf
    Fund of Henry Chau, would be the solution, but committee-chairman and director Chau left at the end of April this year
    and blamed ********* that he wanted absolute control of the training. According to *********’s lawyer Arend de Winter,
    Chau did a moonlight flit and ********* has been busy with ‘making the most of a hopeless situation’ ever since. Apart
    from having the electricity and water reconnected, nothing else happened after 3˝ months.

    Other students
    Formally, twelve students instituted the proceedings against the St. Martinus University yesterday. Those twelve students
    represent all study years. Another twenty or so victims attended the session from the gallery. The verdict does not
    automatically apply for the latter. The judge stated that only the requests of the formal claimants would be granted. The
    students and their lawyer Paul van de Laarschot are counting on SMU now to deal with the matters correctly for all
    students.
    The students are from all quarters of the world – from the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, and India. "Valuable
    assets", is what their lawyer says the supposed reason is that ********* is slow with the handing over of the results.
    "Forcing forty students to follow a new semester immediately yields 320,000 dollars on tuition and fees."

    Deceitful 3 year old "news"???????????

    Yet another deceit from specialist in fraud Verokmed. and his ignorant cronies.

    How can these be facts?:

    Here are some quotes from your alleged "news', posted May 25th.

    How do you explain the discrepancy of 3 months with the date posted in the article?
    Or did you conveniently omit to mention that this happened over 3 years ago.
    QUOTE:
    "...the judge yesterday afternoon.."
    "....will be ready tomorrow..."
    "the results should be made available during the morning of August 27th so that ......."

    @mdcur, krissy,thxleave, teflondon and consort toothless yapping dogs, don't you think you made enough fools of yourselves? Ask your puppet master a calendar and study it before wasting our time in futile exercises distorting facts on ValueMD.
