In the recently published verdict of the court martial against Desi Bouterse, the following can be found on page 110:
Suspect has never repented except to state that the victims, together with foreign powers, were engaged in subversive activities to overthrow the military government, without any report on how he carried out that investigation. At the time , contrary to the current situation, there was no Internet traffic and no mobile traffic to maintain contact with foreign powers. In order to be able to conduct a foreign call, as is evident from the statement of the director at the time, an application had to be submitted first.
Here the judges appear to take the view that it is unlikely that the “victims” were engaged in “subversive activities” because “there was no Internet and mobile traffic to maintain contact with foreign powers”.
When I read this I immediately wondered whether or not they had Internet and mobile traffic around the same period in Grenada when the American CIA destabilized the country and eventually launched an invasion. Could it be that during the same period they did have Internet and mobile traffic in Nicaragua when the CIA, just like in Suriname, was destabilizing the country together with local people? Similarly there are many other countries in Latin America where the CIA was active in (and well before) that period, that apparently had Internet and mobile traffic. And did the Dutch criminal government, through Colonel Hans Valk, also use Internet and mobile traffic to support Bouterse’s coup on February 25th 1980? Surely Valk didn’t have Internet and a mobile phone when he was locally recruiting officers in the [Surinamese] army to do the dirty work? And was it also thanks to Internet and mobile traffic that the Dutch criminal government, through Colonel Bas van Tussenbroek, was able to assist Ronnie Brunswijk shortly afterwards to revolt against Bouterse?
In other words, I wondered why this nonsense could be published without anyone saying anything about it. No journalist has questioned it. Starnieuws published this information blindly. Sad.
I expected at least a response from the NDP. Even Bouterse doesn’t seem to be interested in pointing out this obvious example of nonsense to people. Strange.
Locally established foreign embassies, especially the Dutch and American ones, also didn’t rush to point out that Internet and mobile traffic are definitely not necessary to organize their subversive activities together with parts of the local population.
If the court martial clearly demonstrates in this way that they do not understand at all how (foreign) (military) intelligence agencies (read terrorists) work and communicate (usually through their embassies on location), there is absolutely no need to trust and/or value the rest of the verdict. The court martial will undoubtedly also not be familiar with the terms “compartmentalization”, “plausible deniability” and “need to know”.
It seems that everyone who should know better has an interest in keeping the local slave population of the plantation Suriname as ignorant as possible. Mr. Eugene van der San sometimes complains about “monkeys” on the plantation, but that situation is deliberately kept this way by everyone. Maybe because even the opposing parties all benefit from the fact that the people remain ignorant and believe in fairy tales. But keep in mind, an ignorant people will be (ab)used against you in the future. Today you benefit from it, but tomorrow you may find yourself on the other side.
