~Our Land Matters, today it's us, tomorrow might be you.~
MARIGOT:--- Rinaldo Webster and Ferdinand Beauperthuy has once again called on the population of St. Martin to come out on Monday morning to support their cause as they continue to fight for what is theirs.
The younger Webster told SMN News on Sunday that his father bought land in 1985 and 20 years later they are being told that his father bought the land that is succession land. He said that his father used a well-known notary to execute the purchase and he is in possession of a legal deed. Webster presented a copy of the deed to SMN News as proof and he also provided a letter from the Prefecture that certified that the land that his father purchased is legally registered to him. Besides that Webster said that the courts in Paris have decided that his father’s land will be placed on auction on Tuesday in Paris.
His uncle Ferdinand Beauperthuy explained that they are being disadvantaged because the list of 255 persons in France and Venezuela does not include his grandfather who is supposed to be an heir.
The Beauperthuy and Webster land matters dated back to quite a number of years and the situation has worsened. So far the local government did not voice an opinion or intervene in the situation but promises are now being made that a meeting will be held with the President of the Collectivity and the family.
Several politicians that are gearing up for the March 20th and 27th Territorial Election have already voiced their opinion on the matter.
It is expected that this matter will be a major topic during this election campaign.
