A further $20000 is authorized.

A collaboration with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has been established as part of this donation, and officers from that agency will go to Suriname later this month to train the Mobile Unit there. Under the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative, Suriname received $300,000 last year for law enforcement training.

We hope that this donation and our continued support to Suriname under the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative will help the police to do their job more effectively and keep the Surinamese public safer.”

Always challenges

Minister Kenneth Amoksi of Justice and Police indicated that many discussions have recently been held with various American organizations. “These are all subjects that, when implemented, will certainly help us to step up the maintenance of public order and to do it in a professional manner”. The minister indicated that there will always be challenges, but they are really doing their best to raise the human rights situation to a higher level.
