Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten recognize court rulings in Suriname
WILLEMSTAD - Judicial sentences issued in Suriname, are also recognized in Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. This was agreed in a deal between Suriname and the Kingdom of the Netherlands in July this year.
The agreement concerns the extension of an old agreement from the seventies. Although the relationship cannot be determined as warm, this can be very useful in practice.
“I do not expect that there will be full normalization of relations, but a pragmatic look at the relationship will benefit our countries and peoples,”said Dutch MP Harry van Bommel to the media.
As a member of the Parliamentary Committee for Foreign Relations, he can find himself completely in the silent diplomacy of the moment. The agreement applies to judgments in civil matters. Even judgments in the Dutch Caribbean islands are recognized in Suriname.
The Dutch embassy requested early last year to extend the agreement, so that the three islands can be part of it. Paramaribo agreed on it this year.
