October 2, 2005; AHATA and ‘Task Force’ request an urgent meeting with Prime Minister, in regards to the Aruba boycott
This comes in to the category of so much for pro-active involvement in handling the very situation that this task force was set up to do. They are now meeting with a lawyer and making the following statement?
Recently, AHATA consulted with a lawyer’s office for advice and representation, in relation to the mother of the young American woman Natalee Holloway’s mother, Beth Twitty who has asked Americans to boycott Aruba.
According to AHATA, the negative American press attention becomes worse if Aruba doesn’t make a move.
For this reason, AHATA and the Task Force sent a letter to the Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, to get an urgent meeting to discuss this matter.
After all this time and threatened boycotts by some in the very beginning of this terrible ordeal in the search for Natalee Holloway, the Task Force makes the following comment.
After looking at this, the Strategic Communications Task Force of Aruba met, to look at what is going to happen, seeing that, after assessing the matter, the boycott will have negative consequences for our tourism and economy.
Is it any wonder that Jossy Mansur made the recent editorial entitled, “Where has Jorge Pesquera been“?
