(Caribbean News Now): WILLEMSTAD, Curacao -- Curacao airline Dutch Antilles Express (DAE) will take its local competitor Insel Air, its directors and shareholders to court, according to Nelson Ramiz, chief consultant of DAE.
Law firm Soliana Bonapart & Aardenburg is currently considering the formulation of the claim, said Ramiz.
“DAE has given Bonapart instructions to find exactly what director Edward Heerenveen said about our daily flights to Paramaribo, here in Curacao and in Suriname. Then we’ll look at how we can sue Insel Air,” Ramiz said.
Heerenveen has commented negatively in different media on the daily flight by DAE to Suriname. He apparently insinuated that these flights are against the law. Heerenveen has also stated that DAE has had a preferential position towards Insel Air with the government for two years now.
“Usually I pay no attention to all nonsense that is said. But now it’s enough. This must stop,” Ramiz added.
