We spoke to a friend in Cannes who is retired lawyer and lifelong
Amel owner. He is attending an Amel function Thursday where he will ask
Amel's help for owners caught in the storm. Also he is posting Alex's
post from St Martin on a Cannes net so more I'll know of his and others
dilemma. He told us this morning the government is sending foreign
legion to restore order. His email is below:
J'ai poste sur mon facebook et sur celui de mes amis de St martin
mais pour l'instant c'est le chaos à St Martin.L'armee et 500 légionnaires et
des commandos de police arrivent aujourd'hui à St Martin pour sécuriser
l'île.C'est horrible et nous le plaignons beaucoup.Nous sommes en FRANCE et ne
pouvons rien faire d'ici.J'ai envoyé à AMEL votre message et le témoignage
d'Alex,COURAGE GAYLE NOUS VOUS EMBRASSONS ET ESPÉRONS DES JOURS MEILLEURS POUR
VOUS REVOIR À ST MARTIN.
I post on my facebook and that of my friends of St martin but for now it is the
chaos in St Martin. The army and 500 legionnaires and police commandos arrive
today in St Martin to secure We are in FRANCE and can do nothing from here. I
have sent to AMEL your message and the testimony of Alex, COURAGE GAYLE WE WILL
EMBRACE AND HOPE BEST DAYS TO REVIEW YOU IN ST MARTIN.
I spoke with the Swiss Goverment. In St.Martin there is no Swiss
Emassy and no Consulat.
The contact Alex needs is the following:
Regional Konsulatcenter for St. Martin is in Den Haag, Holland
Regionales Konsularcenter Benelux Den Haag
c/o Schweizerische Botschaft
this office is also responsible for St. Martin
maybe I coud help a littel bit.
And Alex take care my thougt are with you
