Refugees from Suriname
AbstractThe Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in Washington published a brief report on the situation of human rights in Suriname in October 1983 following a visit of a special commission in June of that year. The report questions the government's expressed intention to allow for the expression of popular will or to permit freedom in the media. The Commission concluded that serious violations of important human rights occurred. The International Commission of Jurists in Geneva also published a report entitled "Human Rights in Suriname" which concluded that "the chain of events since 1980 demonstrates an escalation in the military authority's disregard for the rule of law, which is set aside whenever they consider it necessary for the consolidation of their position. " This characteristic report provides background information to the creation of refugees from Suriname in the Netherlands.
