DH | Theo recovering well, but more tests needed

Heyliger is under the watch of prison guards, and all visitors must present a valid form of identification before accessing his room.

CAY HILL–Suspended Member of Parliament (MP) Theo Heyliger is recovering well from surgery performed at St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) on Monday. His doctor has determined that more tests are needed to ensure there is no longer any immediate danger due to his recurring gout.

Heyliger has been a patient at SMMC since Thursday evening when he was transported there from the Pointe Blanche prison.

His family has reiterated that visitors should take into consideration his surgery and overall medical condition and therefore limit the number of visits. Visitors have been steadily pouring into the hospital since he was admitted.

Visitation at SMMC falls under a regular visitation schedule for patients, unlike the restricted visiting times at the Pointe Blanche prison. Heyliger is under the watch of prison guards, and all visitors must present a valid form of identification before accessing his room.

The ailing Heyliger, who was the highest vote-getter in St. Maarten’s last parliamentary election and the only MP to earn his seat outright to date, was transported to SMMC from the Pointe Blanche prison in a Police K9-Unit vehicle.

Heyliger’s wife Grisha Heyliger-Martens has blamed Heyliger’s hospitalisation and subsequent surgery on the insufficient administration of his medication.

Heyliger was arrested at his home on February 19. He was first held in the Philipsburg police station holding cells until he was transferred to facilities in Bonaire. A court battle ensued regarding his return home, which resulted in his detention at Pointe Blanche.

On the request of the Prosecutor’s Office, the court extended Heyliger’s detention by 30 more days on Friday afternoon.
