The Paramaribo-Center safety zone project must contribute to safety in the center of Paramaribo and the surrounding area. The project was launched yesterday by Minister Kenneth Amoksi of Justice and Police.
The minister of justice indicates that the inner city of Paramaribo was chosen because of the administrative and entertainment center that lies in this catchment area. The project fits well with the government’s vision. Security is a shared responsibility between the government and the citizens. The ministry will do everything to ensure safety in the entertainment center, Amoksi said.
“Surveillance aims to make citizens feel safe. One of the priorities of this government is security. We live in a democratic constitutional state and when people flout law and justice, the government must intervene. The ministry has a zero-tolerance policy with the aim that the police will take tougher action against people who make society unsafe, ”Amoksi said.
