MISSING MILLIONS FROM FINANCE MINISTRY IN SURINAME RECOVERED

Armand Achaibersing


September 30, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett |

Suriname’s outgoing Finance and Planning Minister Armand Achaibersing says the 59 million dollars reportedly missing from the ministry has been recovered saying it was not about a scandal but “a common theft”.

In July, the Dutch-speaking CARICOM country was rocked by a major fraud scandal in which millions of dollars had been withdrawn from the bank account of the Ministry of Finance and Planning through forged documents and receipts.

The authorities said “the funds had been withdrawn from the account in April and June, with the perpetrators presenting false documents to the Central Bank of Suriname for cashing”.
