- Published in Soualiga Newsday Features
SINT MAARTEN/CURACAO - The Common Court of Justice of Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten and Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba today presented its annual report and annual accounts for 2022 to the public during a press conference.
The theme for this annual report is Novus populus cogitationes novas, in other words: New people, new perspectives. In many ways, 2022 can be seen as a year of recovery, after two years of forced slow down due to the pandemic.
For the Court, this has become visible in the attachment of a number of important files of business operations. For example, a decision has been taken on the redesign of the support services and the employees concerned have been placed in their (new) positions.
Furthermore, there is progress in the field of housing for the Court in Curaçao with the establishment of a project group for the renovation of the City Hall in which the Court also participates. This is a first, important step in the return of justice to the monumental '21 trapi' in the heart of Willemstad.
It also looks at developments in the number of cases that the Court had to deal with, both at first instance on appeal, in 2022. Attention is also paid to high-profile cases at the various branches of the Court.
