Court of Justice wants more local judges

JudgesWILLEMSTAD - The court wants more local judges. Of the 45 that are now in service, a quarter of them are from the islands. That is according to the report of the Evaluation Committee Judicial Statute Laws.

The funds to achieve this is currently not available. The Court must also consider the position of the Dutch language within law enforcement. All legislation is in Dutch, but that language is not the most spoken language in the population. The Evaluation Committee says that Papiamentu or English should be used where possible.
