Hoefdraad wants to hear St. Maarten first

POSTED: 02/29/12 1:58 PM

WILLEMSTAD/GREAT BAY – President of the Common Court of Justice of Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten and of Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba Liesbeth Hoefdraad has said that she must hear St. Maarten before she decides on Curacao’s request to appoint temporarily appoint a seventh member of the Supervisory Board of Directors of the Central Bank of Curacao and St. Maarten. The bank’s charter gives the court president the power to appoint someone if the countries – Curacao and St. Maarten cannot agree on a joint candidate within three months after their country’s three candidates begin their term.

The current supervisory board was appointed on May 31, 2011 and officially took office in early June, but no seventh person has been approved by the governments. This led Jamaloodin to file a petition with Hoefdraad to appoint someone for three months so the governments could try to identify the joint candidate.
