In the case of the Central Bank of Suriname (CBvS), the prosecution demanded four years against Faranaaz Hausil, former director of legal, compliance and international affairs at the CBvS, less time in custody. A fine of 100,000 SRD was also requested in the alternative for ten months of police custody and his detention.
Attorney General (ovj) Cynthia Klein held a 36-page indictment and said that due to proven facts, the prosecution cannot settle for a lighter sanction. The required penalty entails an unconditional deprivation of liberty of a considerable duration. The prosecution also said the Hausil had a vital role in the whole.
Lawyer Murwin Dubois tells journalists that the prosecution has explained on the basis of which it is of the opinion that the conviction can be resumed by the district court. Dubois does not want to value the four years required because he still believes that his client is innocent. Soon it will be his turn to prove his client’s innocence.
The prosecutor has described his client’s position of guilt and it is now up to him to prove the position of innocence. Dubois indicates that this is a preview of the first officer and that views may differ. It is now up to him to highlight this difference during the next session, which is scheduled for June 29.
