A government spokesperson seems to have admitted that there were mistakes made in the beginning of the investigation of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. I think that Beth Holloway Twitty concurs. This coming from the meeting that both Beth and the Aruban Prime Minister Oduber had over the weekend.
ORANJESTAD, Aruba – Aruba’s prime minister believes that authorities made mistakes at the start of the investigation of the Natalee Holloway case, a government spokesman said Monday.
Beth Holloway Twitty, who has often criticized authorities on the Dutch Caribbean island since her daughter disappeared on May 30, met in private with Prime Minister Nelson Oduber over the weekend.
“I think that he’s in absolute agreement that the initial investigation has been so badly botched,” Holloway Twitty said on NBC’s “Today” show.
She said the prime minister also told her that Aruba needs to review the first stages of the investigation to find out “who let this go wrong.”
Aruban Government spokesperson used some cautious language but pretty much agreed that there were some initial problems with the investigation.
Oduber told reporters over the weekend that during the meeting he assured the Alabama woman that investigators would not stop looking for answers about the fate of her 18-year-old daughter.
Government spokesman Ruben Trapenberg said Monday the prime minister had expressed concerns about the initial investigation, though he used more cautious language.
“The prime minister agreed that in the beginning the case could have been better handled,” Trapenberg said. “He didn’t say it had been ‘botched.’”
