Suriname: Open letter to the Judiciary

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 48/003/2012

Following the adoption by the Surinamese National Assembly of an amendment to the 1992 amnesty law, Amnesty International wishes to remind the judiciary of Suriname of its obligation to uphold human rights law in the trial of the current President and other co-defendants for their alleged involvement in the extra-judicial execution of 15 political opponents in December 1982, and any other trials that might seek justice in cases of human rights violations committed during the period covered by the amnesty law.
