Suriname is presently in very harsh budgetary difficulties simply indicated by the reality that police officers carry out their duties in basketball shoes they supply as the state cannot supply their full uniform kit. But on 11 April 2018 the police of Suriname indicated that police in gym boots can get the job done as they presented 8 heavy criminal files in the hearing of the two Dutch citizens and residents of Suriname charged with being recruiters for Islamic State, facilitating the recruitment and funding of Islamic State recruits to travel from Suriname to Islamic State and most important for planning an Islamic State attack in Suriname. In T&T every year we spend TTD Billions on national insecurity, we have sent more persons to Islamic State than any other country in the western hemisphere and the highest in the world per capita. Yet not a single case has been brought before the courts much less involving 8 thick, heavy bust yuh godi files of evidence. T&T experienced the expectation of an attack on carnival 2018 now those arrested are suing the state for some taxpayers money. We had a whole grap of persons arrested for supposedly plotting to kill the then PM now the bills to the taxpayers ringing up chi ching! It’s a disease that crosses the political divide and it’s only the racist hegemonist believe that their party is decent, respectable, morally superior and competent. Whilst those elected and non-elected politicians play games with public safety the entire structure that recruited, financed and moved all those persons to Islamic State is intact and operational in T&T. Maybe is time we put all politicians, the police and the SSA and those that exist in the shadows in gym boots some Bata gym boots? Cause we desperate and some worn out uniforms with hole in order too.
