Ivicktion Called Off — But For How Long? [Wassenaar, Netherlands]

Wassenaar. Netherlands. Today (May 25, 2022), Ivicke had a second preliminary injunction hearing (in Dutch: voorlopige voorziening or VoVo for short), to request a suspension of eviction until the higher appeal in our case against the municipality, who want to evict us on the grounds that according to the zoning plan our home should be an office. We already had a first VoVo about this in February. That one we lost, but the judge gave us until the 28th of May before we had to leave. In the meantime, we actually won a civil court case against the owner, because the judge agreed that his plans for Ivicke are nonsense. Our lawyers then managed to get this new case because of that change of circumstances.
