KRALENDIJK – On February 2, 2024, the court of first instance in Bonaire ruled in the dispute between the Public Entity Bonaire (OLB) and Bonaire Bayside N.V, operating under the name Cuba Compagnie. 

The judge ruled in favor of the Public Entity regarding the concrete planter that Cuba Compagnie had placed on Wilhelmina Square, without having the permit to do so.

On May 15, 2024, Cuba Compagnie complied with this verdict. In consultation, the parties decided that Cuba Compagnie would remove the concrete bin themselves. By doing so, Cuba Compagnie rectified the violation and complied with laws and regulations.
