The biggest newspaper in Paramaribo, the capital of Suriname, will close by the end of the month because it cannot buy newsprint. Leo Morpugo, editor of De Ware Tijd, said the Central Bank has not issued the U.S. dollars needed to buy imported newsprint, even though the paper has sufficient funds in local currency.
