On October 2, 2014, the Provisional Judge of the District Court of Overijssel (location Almelo) issued a positive judgment in a short law suit. The issue involved five horses from our client ‘A’ residing in Saudi Arabia which were trained by B in England. At some point B has moved the horses without permission from England to the Netherlands, where B kept the horses hidden for A.
The provisional judge ruled in favour of A. B is ordered to stable the horses at the barn of a third party. Thanks to this judgement A knows about the whereabouts of his horses stay and he can monitor their health.
In the short law suit A was represented by Mr. L. M. Schelstraete and Mr. V. Zitman of Schelstraete Equine Lawyers (EUAEL Alliance Partner).
