St. Maarten News – Hope-politician Jacinto Mock and his wife Teresita are fighting in court with the joint heirs of Preston Levi Richardson over the ownership of a property on Back Street. The Court in First Instance ordered yesterday that parties appear on the location of the contested property on August 26.
On February 24, 2015, the court granted Teresita Mock a declaratory judgment that she had become the owner of the property per November 1, 2003 through prescription.
The Richardson heirs demanded that Mock vacate the property and a declaratory judgment that Mock had enriched herself at the expense of Richardson. The court rejected this demand and the heirs have now appealed this decision.
To come to a conclusion about the question whether Mock qualifies now as the owner of the parcel of 600 square meters and the buildings on it, the Common Court of justice ruled yesterday that it needs more information.
