Amen­ded Re­call Act sent to ju­d­ge

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

Nai­lah van Dijk, the at­tor­ney re­pre­sen­ting Ray­mond Sapoen, Die­p­ak­koe­mar Chi­tan and par­li­a­ment’s chair­wo­man Jen­ni­fer Geer­lings-Si­mons, has sent the amen­ded Re­call Act to the ju­d­ge as in­struc­ted. The at­tor­ney con­fir­med that she has al­rea­dy sent a co­py of the Re­call Act to the ju­d­ge and ex­plai­ned that the ju­d­ge can now de­ci­de when she wants to an­noun­ce a ru­ling in the law­s­uit that had been fi­led by Bar­kat Mo­ha­bA­li, Prem Sard­joe and the fol­lo­wing po­li­ti­cal par­ties: the Pro­gres­si­ve Re­form Par­ty (VHP), the Na­ti­o­nal Par­ty Su­ri­na­me (NPS) and Pert­ja­jah Lu­hur (PL). Van Dijk has ex­plai­ned to the ju­d­ge that the law re­gar­ding en­ding the mem­ber­ship of le­gis­la­tors is clear­ly ap­pli­ca­ble in this ca­se and that the PL par­ty does not stick to its own by­laws on re­calling mem­bers of the par­ty. The amend­ment of the law means that the­re is a dif­fe­rent pro­ce­du­re that must be fol­lo­wed when po­li­ti­cal par­ties want to re­call le­gis­la­tors.

The at­tor­ney ex­plai­ned that the de­mand of the po­li­ti­cal par­ties, Mo­hab-Ali and Sard­joe must the­re­fo­re be re­jec­ted. She poin­ted out that Sapoen and Chi­tan we­re not re­cal­l­ed in the pro­per legal man­ner and that the par­ty has vi­o­la­ted legal pro­vi­si­ons. The VHP, NPS, PL, Bar­kat Mo­hab-Ali and Prem Sard­joe ha­ve as­ked the court to or­der the chair­wo­man of par­li­a­ment to ban Sapoen and Chi­tan from at­ten­ding par­li­a­men­ta­ry ses­si­ons.
