Former boss Central Bank Suriname arrested

Bericht door Lindau Kar » za feb 08, 2020 9:31 pm

Robert van Trikt, President of the Central Bank of Suriname (CBvS), who was dismissed last month, was arrested on Thursday.

This is reported by a police spokesperson in Paramaribo. The CBvS had asked the Surinamese Public Prosecution Service (OM) last week to investigate possible unlawful acts by the (former) central bank president. At that time it was about the antedating of loans and conflicts of interest, where the bank president had projects carried out by an accountancy firm that he owns.

Now the possible theft of 100 million US dollars has been added, money that Surinamese banks had stored with the Central Bank.

The case is causing financial turmoil. For example, the value of the Surinamese dollar has recently fallen. Van Trikt, registered as an accountant with the NBA, is assisted by lawyer Irwin Kanhai. He is also the lawyer of President Desi Bouterse, who approved the resignation of the central bank president.
