File in Suriname December killings case vanishes from bank vault

(De Ware Tijd) PARAMARIBO – To Jozef Brahim, former director of De Surinaamsche Bank (DSB), the disappearance of a file he had put into the bank’s money vault is “a big mystery”. He put the file in the vault as a favor to former police inspector Herman Doorson. Afterwards, it turned out to involve a preliminary investigation into the 1982 December murders. During the resumption of the December trial yesterday, Brahim stated that DSB’s vault was just the best place to keep such a file. To enter the vault, three keys are needed at the same time, one kept by management, one by internal affair, and the other by the cashiers’ department. The file was placed in the vault in 1984, but has disappeared since then.
