There is therefore no question of prohibiting '' Essed concludes.

Prosecutor Roy Elgin asked to stop the process, the court-martial in Suriname. It is a former army chief and current president of Suriname, Desi Bouterse, prime suspect.

Thursday Elgin actually had his sentencing should speak out against, inter alia, the Surinamese president. Bouterse has managed to avoid this by taking the decision to give the Attorney General to stop his prosecution in this process.

Processed finds that the decision of Bouterse is again talk of interference in an ongoing case, as in 2012 was the case when the parliament adopted the amnesty law.,, This is a classic example of interference. So martial can use the same arguments to allow the process to go, '' said the lawyer.

Essed find the reactions from the community on the action of Bouterse,, encouraging.,, People are starting to get that he's his own skin to save and has not taken this decision in the interest of the state. Even supporters of Bouterse I hear that. ''
