Dino Bouterse MEMORANDUM OF LAW IN SUPPORTOF PRE-TRIAL MOTIONS

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK ———————————————————————– x
DEFENDANT DINO
BOUTERSE’
S MEMORANDUM OF LAW IN SUPPORTOF PRE-TRIAL MOTIONS
S2 13 Cr. 635 (SAS) UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, -against- DINO BOUTERSE, et al., Defendants. ———————————————————————– x
22 undercover agents. There are also several recordings (N-23, N-35, and N-80) that were not  produced to the defense but are referred to in produced DEA reports. The defense has requested these recordings but the government has not provided them. For example, N-80 concerns conversations between an unindicted co-conspirator and government informants while on the trip to Suriname where Bouterse was introduced to the informants. Accordingly, these recordings should be produced as they involve conversations between an unindicted co-conspirator and the government’s agents and confidential sources during the time period charged in the indictment.
DEA Operational File
Bouterse has requested that the government provide him with all budgetary and authority records regarding his case, and the operational file from the Drug Enforcement Agency or any federal agency directly or indirectly involved in the investigation against him and his unindicted alleged co-conspirators.
Counsel’s Dec
l. at ¶ 12. A review of the file would allow the defense to determine if the confidential sources or agents involved in the case operated outside their budget and authority, or inapposite to DEA regulations. Such divergence from proper procedure is discoverable under Rule 16 to discover whether the DEA and/or its operatives violated any federal statute or regulation in its investigation leading to this indictment.
POINT V BOUTERSE REQUESTS DISCLOSURE OF BRADY MATERIAL
In Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83, 87 (1963), the Supreme Court held “that the suppression by the prosecution of evidence favorable to an accused upon request violates due  process where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment, irrespective of the good
faith or bad faith of the prosecution.” The Court later refined this ruling, holding that the duty to
disclose such evidence is applicable even if there has been no request by the accused
POINT VIII BOUTERSE REQUESTS LEAVE TO FILE ADDITIONAL MOTIONS
The defendant requests leave to file additional motions if made necessary by subsequent disclosures. Dated: New York, New York March 28, 2014 Respectfully submitted,  _/s/______________________________ JOSE M. ARRUFAT-GRACIA, ESQ.
