Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

The De­cem­ber 8 tri­al which was sche­du­led to re­su­me on Tues­day was post­po­ned be­cau­se the pre­si­dent of the Mi­li­ta­ry Court, Cyn­thia Val­stein-Mont­nor, is re­por­ted­ly sick. Ir­vin Kan­hai, the at­tor­ney re­pre­sen­ting the pri­me sus­pect De­si Bou­ter­se, told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me that he re­cei­ved a mes­sa­ge that the tri­al will be re­su­med on Ja­nu­a­ry 30. The mes­sa­ge al­so in­di­ca­ted that one of the ju­d­ges is cur­rent­ly sick. Sour­ces in­di­ca­ted that the pre­si­dent of the Mi­li­ta­ry Court is sick. The Mi­li­ta­ry Court on Ja­nu­a­ry 30 is ex­pec­ted to an­noun­ce if the tri­al will be re­su­med or if it will be stop­ped in­de­fi­ni­te­ly. Su­nil Oem­raw­singh, chair­man of Stich­ting 8 de­cem­ber 1982 and one of the sur­vi­ving re­la­ti­ves, told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me that the re­la­ti­ves we­re told that one of the ju­d­ges is sick. He poin­ted out that the re­la­ti­ves still find it pain­ful to see how the tri­al is being ham­pe­red with va­rious obsta­cles. Stich­ting 8 de­cem­ber 1982 does not want the re­so­lu­ti­on of the govern­ment to ha­ve any ef­fect on the tri­al. The re­so­lu­ti­on is re­por­ted­ly ai­med at en­ding the pro­se­cu­ti­on of the sus­pects/ de­fen­dants in the De­cem­ber 8 tri­al.
