The Ministry of Internal Affairs (BIS) of the government of Suriname has announced that Monday, July 2, 2018, would be a non-working public holiday in Suriname on account of the annual "Dag der Vrijheden" (Emancipation Day) public holidays of Suriname, for the calendar year 2018.
Five years ago (26-Jun-2013), the Suriname Raad van Ministers (Council of Ministers) announced that Monday, July 1st, 2013, would be a one-off non-working public holiday throughout Suriname to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the emancipation of slaves ("150 jaar Afschaffing van de Slavernij").
The July 1st non-working public holiday in Suriname, also called the commemoration of the abolition of slavery or the Day of Freedom or Keti Koti or Manspasi Dey, was then maintained in the subsequent announcements of non-working public holidays in Suriname for the subsequent years (23-Jan-2018, 09-Jan-2017, 26-Jan-2015, 17-Mar-2014, 12-Feb-2014 and 15-Jan-2014).
