Court Cases / Fourteenth GMS Court Case
ASOTEKO vs. Bonaire Government 2
The right to adequate housing is set out in art. 11 Int. Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural rights. The Bonaire Government has accepted the responsibility to make sure all citizens shall have adequate housing. Nevertheless, when a citizen petitions the government to be granted a parcel of land-lease to build a home on, he is lucky if he gets it within 10 years. This wrong must be righted.
