Saint Martin Adds May 27 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Wednesday, April 25, 2012)

The list of annual official non-working public holidays in Saint Martin has been amended with the long-awaited gazetting of the return of the May 27 annual public holiday to commemorate the abolition of slavery.

The aforementioned "Décret n° 2012-553 du 23 avril 2012 modifiant le décret n° 83-1003 du 23 novembre 1983 relatif à la commémoration de l'abolition de l'esclavage" (JORF n°0098 du 25 avril 2012, page 7373) thus specifies an annual public holiday to commemorate the abolition of slavery in Saint-Martin on May 27.

The amended "décret n° 83-1003 du 23 novembre 1983 relatif à la commémoration de l'abolition de l'esclavage" had established a specific annual public holiday for each of the French overseas territories (DOM/TOM). However, on July 15, 2007, when Saint-Martin became an independent French overseas administrative area, no longer a part of Guadeloupe, the May 27 public holiday for Guadeloupe ceased to be a public holiday in Saint Martin (16-Jul-2007).
