His Highness Majesty King Willem Alexander and
Prime Minister Mr Mark Rutte p/a Kabinet Der Koning Postbus

Bonaire, June 27, 2022
His Highness Willem Alexander, Honorable Mr Rutte,
I write this letter as a follow up on our personal meeting on Bonaire, November 16, 2013 and following letters communications. Especially my prior letters to your Highness of June 9th, 2017 and October 22nd, 2017 and July 4, 2018 based on your promise to me and the people of Bonaire on violations of the United Nations Charter, Human Rights and International Law by your government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
As your Highness would be aware of that your promise was not complied with, on the contrary was broken and your government abusing their power and without any remorse illegally annexed our people and island by embedding us in your constitution in October 2017 under unequal rights in violation of all humanity rights.
As your Highness may know that the Dutch government recently instructed three main Dutch constitutional and legal experts Prof. dr. Gert Oostindie, Prof. Gerhard Hoogers, and dr. Wouter Veenendaal to investigate our organization continuous allegations and protests, of the violations of the UN Charter on self-determination and human rights and international law since the illegal annexation of 10-10-10. The same as I informed you in our conversation in September 2013.
For your Highness information these experts in a recent press release and report admitted and confirmed that our island Bonaire and former Netherlands Antilles decolonization was never confirmed by the United Nations. (See attached) And furthermore that Bonaire and the other former Netherlands Antilles islands were unjustly removed from the UN list when your government gave its own interpretation to the United Nations Charter article 73. The Netherlands were incorrectly absolved from its reporting obligations and compliance to article 73 when they implemented the Statute in 1955.
For us as Bonaire this admission of the truth is a huge step, on the road to the re-listing on the United Nations list of Non Self Governing Territories. As your Highness may remember that you questioned me very seriously if what I want was independence, where I answered to you, no. That I want our people’s self-determination rights to be restored and respected according to United Nations article 73.
The world was misled that we as former Netherlands Antilles were free and equal in your Kingdom. By this recent historical admission after almost 70 years by your own constitutional experts exposed that your government since 1954 wrongfully remains in violation of your own co-signed UN Charter and human rights conventions.
Recently we received very disturbing indications that your intelligence service has all my personal communications wire-tapped. I herewith kindly request your Highness influence and cooperation to stop the Dutch government immediately from its illegal practices of violations of my human rights.
I seemingly became a victim of your government colonial political repressive actions, as there were three attempts on my life, in September 2012, January 2015 and June 2017 and I was unlawfully arrested in September 2019 all because standing up and voicing against your government article 73 human rights violations, your own truths that are now admitted by your own experts.
Finally I have no other choice to put your Highness Kingdom Government responsible for any attempt on my life.
We hope that you as our King, which we all highly respect, will take the responsibility to do everything in your power to address your government cooperation to return us back to the list of Non-Self-governing-Territories of the United Nations. According to Article 73 your government obligations to restore our right to emancipation and nation-building, our self-government back to our people as your promise to me on November 16, 2013, and Queen Wilhelmina promised to the United Nations and the world and the Kingdom signed on June 26, 1945 and Kingdom Law of July 1, 1863, where we all be equally human and equally free.
With utmost trust in the Justice and Equity of Your Royal Highness,
