St. Martinus University’s demand to rectify article published in Curaçao Chronicle rejected by judge

WILLEMSTAD - Curaçao Chronicle does not have to rectify an article it published about the St. Martinus Medical School on November 9, 2017. This is according to a ruling by the Court of First Instance on January 8. The ruling was dated December 15, 2017, but published by the court on January 8.

In the article, Curaçao Chronicle based itself on another court ruling dated October 12, 2017.

The article stated: “The medical university operating in the former St. Thomas School building at Scherpenheuvel, the St. Martinus University must close its doors immediately. This was determined by the judge in the Court of Appeal.

The university operated by the International Healthcare Holdings from India has nearly 500,000 guilders in rent that is overdue. They indicated that they are not willing to pay because they invested a million in the maintenance of the building.”
