On Wednesday 21 September, the court has rejected the claim of Aruba Birdlife Conservation (ABC) to stop the construction works of the Azure Condominiums project at the Bulbaliplas in Aruba. Consequently, property developer PGM Condobuilders is allowed to continue the construction of the Azure Condominiums project.

In this proceedings, the government of Aruba successfully joined and put up a defence with PGM Condobuilders. The government was assisted by senior associate Steffen Hagen and associate Brechtje Huiskes of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne.

The proceedings were closely followed by the media; the judgment of the court was reported on by for example Antilliaans Dagblad, Amigoe and Noticiacla (in Dutch).
