Detention suspect in murder-Wiels extended

Helmin WielsWILLEMSTAD – Luigi F. (Pretu), suspect in the murder of the politician Helmin Wiels, will remain in jail. The court extended his detention by 30 days. His lawyer had previously asked for his release.

It is now clear that Pretu has to appear before a judge on September 13 for the first time. Pretu, which means black, was arrested a few months ago in Zoetermeer in connection with the murder of Helmin Wiels.  He has since been detained in a highly secured naval barrack in Suffisant. The magistrate determined yesterday that he should be transferred to the prison.
