Isn't this wrong? Shouldn't be "I am coming to see Martine." Or "I come to see Martine?"

Je viens de voir Martine. I've just seen Martine. <- Past tense???

This relates to:

Bonjour Jim !

No, this sentence is correct here.
Indeed, to express what we call the Close Past or "Passé Proche" in French, you use "venir de + infinitive" in Le Présent.
Have a look at our related lesson:

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
