Knops 7: Homosexuals Have To Fly To Bonaire Because They Can’t Marry In Aruba Curacao

Finally, Mr President, one thing I have not been able to discuss. On 1 April we celebrated the opening of marriage here — in the Netherlands, I mean. There all kinds of people were interviewed, including from the islands. They said to us: “It is really a pity that we, same-sex couples, cannot marry in Curaçao or Aruba. We then have to go to Bonaire, when we want equal rights and are also entitled to them according to the ruling of the Supreme Court.” So my question to the Secretary of State is: what influence can the Netherlands exert, so that equal rights will actually be equal rights throughout the Kingdom?
Thank you very much.
