Three New Judges at the Court

Although they have been ruling already at the Antillean Court for some time, yesterday the judges Rene van Veen, Edward van der Bunt and Joost Veerman were officially installed.

Van Veen's domicile is St. Maarten. He has started his second period in the Antilles, after he had been a member of the Court between 1999 and 2004.

Van der Bunt moved in 1997 to the Antilles, where he worked until 2005 at the Directorate of Legislation and Legal Affairs. In 2005 he joined the Court as a judge in training. He is one of the local judges, since he has been working and living on the island for more than 10 years.

Veerman worked as a lawyer in several large cities before he became a judge at the Amsterdam Court in 2006. His specialisation is commercial law and ict-law.
