On 8 December 1982, at Fort Zeelandia in Paramaribo, Surinamese authorities committed 15 murders led by the military regime and its leader Desi Bouterse, who had previously come to power through a military coup. Thereafter the authorities disposed of all of their main critics through torture and summary execution. The shock of these events is still felt in Surinamese society today, particularly as the culprits have never been arrested or tried.
