Inter-Assure wins Court case

The Court of First Instance in Curaçao dismissed all claims that insurance company Nagico had instituted against Inter-Assure – former general agent of Nagico.

In late January, the Court of First Instance in Curaçao gave its final judgment in the long-lasting legal proceedings between National General Insurance Corporation N.V. (Nagico) and Inter-Assure (Curaçao) N.V. According to Nagico, Inter-Assure had wrongly collected premiums from its insured. Nagico also claimed monetary compensation.

According to the Court of First Instance in Curaçao, these accusations of Nagico were all unjustified. Justus van der Lubbe, Managing Director of Inter-Assure: “I regret that, out of necessity, we ended up in proceedings for years, while we had already terminated the relationship with Nagico. As the Court – who thoroughly studied the case – has found all Nagico’s claims unfounded, we can finally give our full attention to our business again with, inter alia, the further expansion of our activities on the islands for the clients who have remained loyal to us in all those years.”
