Suriname threatens legal action over the hit Netflix series Narco-Saints

The government of Suriname has said that it plans to investigate legal action against the producers of the Netflix show “Narco-Saints” which shows Suriname in a negative light for portraying itself as a “narco state” and fosters negative images of the country. Based on real-life events from about two decades ago, the series tells the story of a man who risked his life to join a secret mission to capture a Korean drug lord operating in Suriname, Reuters reports.

Foreign Minister Albert Ramdin said in a statement that Suriname no longer has the image that emerges from the series or participates in such practices.

Regardless of whether the practices presented are true or false, they create a negative perception. The entire world sees these things, so they are not desirable.” Ramdin said he may take legal action against the producers. The series was co-produced by Moonlight Films, which referred any queries to Netflix. Perfect Storm Film, the other producer of the film, was unable to provide a comment.
