SURINAME: DEATH PENALTY ABOLISHED

March 3, 2015: The Parliament of Suriname abolished the death penalty, in the framework of the discussions regarding the adoption of the new Criminal Code.
On 19 May 2014, the Justice and Police Minister of Suriname, Edward Belfort, announced an amendment to its Criminal Code that will remove the death penalty.
On 2 July 2014, the vice-chair of the National Assembly, Ruth Wijdenbosch, told the annual general meeting of the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty in Puerto Rico that Suriname "will soon abolish the death penalty".
On 18 December 2014, for the first time, Suriname voted in favour of the Resolution on a Moratorium on the Use of the Death Penalty at the UN General Assembly. Previously it had always abstained on the Resolution.
The last time someone was put to death in Suriname, was in 1982, when the military rulers executed political opponents. In March 1982, Wilfred Hawker, a sergeant they found guilty of treason, was executed by firing squad at dawn for staging two coups. (Sources: Parliamentarians for Global Action, HOC, 05/03/2015)
