Interview with Madelaine Aanstoot and Bram Reinke, both attorneys-at-law of HBN Law, Cees den Heijer of Architect DenHeijer and Maurick Wolf of Wolf Bouwmanagement
During a nice conversation at the porch of one of the most beautiful houses on Curacao at the Spanish Water, designed by Cees den Heijer, along with a good glass of wine and some Old Dutch cheese cubes, one realises once more life isn’t bad at all. Unfortunately “the outside world” isn’t always that colourful and is also home to troubles, disputes and discontent. It is a vehicle of opportunities but also of risks.

The internet is an important source for finding legal information.
Governments, institutions and individuals have put legal resources on the World Wide Web. The number of statutes, court decisions and other legal documents available on the internet grows daily.
Internet is an ideal and cost-effective place to find a recent court decision, to track current legislative developments or to find out about any companies activities.
Dutch Caribbean Legal Portal asked mr. Karel Frielink, President of the Curacao Bar Association, to give his view on the importance of sharing legal information.
