Bouterse trial postponed
2012-12-15 09:06:46 | (0 Comments)
The trial of President Desi Bouterse and others implicated in the deaths of 15 prominent people who were opposed to the then military government in Suriname in 1982, has been postponed.
The trial was due to restart on Wednesday, but the Prosecutor's Office announced that it was awaiting a ruling from the Constitutional Court on the amnesty law which was recently passed.
The trial had been halted in May after the National Assembly approved the controversial Amnesty Law that could pardon all the suspects in the December 1982 murders.
