DUTCH rail construction company Strukton and its parent Oranjewoud have filed a request at the Corporate Chamber of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal to permanently extend the three-month suspension of majority shareholder and CEO, Mr Gerard Sanderink.

Sanderink was suspended following what the Strukton supervisory board describes as a “period of incidents.”

The board says that the permanent suspension is necessary for calm and stability in the companies.

The court previously ordered Sanderink to leave his position as CEO of IT company Centric, which he also established, in November 2022.

Sanderink is involved in public disputes over Centric with his first and second wives and threatened a judge during a recent court case.
