Suriname Education Permanent Secretary dismissed

(De Ware Tijd) PARAMARIBO – Education permanent secretary Robert Soentik has until tomorrow to finish ongoing matters. It is not known why he will be dismissed. Several sources claim that the fuss surrounding the history book for the 6th grade is the reason. DWT has learned from political circles that it is not known who will succeed Soentik. The decision can result in a split between Pertjajah Luhur and Mega Combination as permanent secretaries are often confidants of Ministers. According to a source there are constantly differences in opinion between Soentik and Education minister Raymond Sapoen. The latter however denies this.
