President Arrindell calls for moment of silence at Parlatino Parliamentary Forum in Connection with Malaysian Plane Crash

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten – President of Parliament Hon. Gracita Arrindell last Thursday requested a moment of silence to be observed in connection with Malaysian Flight MH-17 crash victims at the Parlatino Parliamentary Forum on Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) that took place in Panama City.

80 delegates stood for a moment of silence for all victims of violence and the victims of MH-17.

“The moment of silence was dedicated to all the victims of violence in general and in particular the victims of MH-17 that crashed in Eastern Ukraine.

“It was logical for me to make a request to the Congress given the agenda point of the day,” President of Parliament Hon. Gracita Arrindell said on Sunday.

The Parliamentary Forum on SALW was founded in 1999 by parliamentary initiatives to create a platform for greater on SALW. 

Officially constituted in the Spanish Parliament in 2002, today the forum is the only global network of parliamentarians specifically dedicated to matters of arms control and violence prevention.

The mission of the organization is to support parliamentarians in their small arms related work, contributing to the advancement of the small arms agenda, and providing a space for parliamentarians to meet and join forces with other stakeholders and actors, such as civil society organizations.

Founded as an initiative by parliamentarians from Central America and Europe, the Forum today unites parliamentarians from various political fractions in Latin America, Africa and Europe.

Arrindell is also one of Parlatino’s Vice Presidents.
