The Hague to Name Street After Munir

The Hague regional administration has promised Suciwati to name a street in the city after her late husband, Munir, a human rights activist who died from arsenic poisoning in 2004.

During a meeting with Suciwati last last weekend, The Hague administration promised her it would name a city street “Munirstraat”  as a token of respect for Munir, Radio Netherlands reported Wednesday.

If realized, Munir would be the fourth Indonesian to have a street in the Netherlands named after him. The first three are Irawan Sujono, Mohammad Hatta and Raden Ajeng Kartini.

Suciwati said The Hague’s appreciation for her late husband was a pleasant surprise for her birthday, which she celebrated recently with her friends in Amsterdam.

Munir was poisoned with arsenic on board a Garuda flight to the Netherlands.
