Press Release from Prosecutors Office in Aruba


Looks like another Friday late afternoon presser out of The Aruban Prosecutors office.

Oranjestad: In this press release, the Public Prosecutor’s Office provides an update of the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

At this time the investigative team, which consists of police agents from the Aruban Police Force under guidance of the prosecutor in charge of this case, is at work in several areas of the criminal investigation into the disappearance of miss Holloway last May of this year. In the first place the team is busy investigating aspects and leads that have not been investigated yet.

The investigative team is also interviewing new witnesses and witnesses who have already been interviewed in this case are being interviewed again. Yesterday for instance, members of the police team interviewed the mother of the missing Miss Holloway. She was on the island for a couple of days.

Besides investigating new leads or leads that have not been investigated yet and interviewing new witnesses and witnesses who have already been interviewed the team is reviewing the whole investigation from the start until now. From this review the team has concluded that there are several aspects that need more attention, for instance there are people living in the United States of America who have to be interviewed again, this time more profoundly. To realize this, the Public Prosecutor’s Office has petitioned the United States of America for legal assistance. When there is more information about this request that can be made public, the Public Prosecutor’s Office will make this information public.

The last development that will be highlighted in this press release regards the tapes of the Dr. Phil show. During this show a couple of weeks ago a tape was shown in which one suspect in the case of the disappearance of miss Holloway makes declarations about the case on camera to a private investigator. After requesting and receiving these tapes from the United States of America the tapes were sent to the Dutch Forensic Institute in Holland for further testing. The results of these tests are not known yet.

The Public Prosecutor’s Office will keep on working as it always has, which is according to the law.

I guess this would be their response to the complaints in the families five page letter asking for all to be taken off the case. Funny, no where in the above presser does it say questioning the three suspects or Paul Van der Sloot.

      No comment about Dennis Jacobs? More profoudly? If the way Joran was handled what could that mean.

      I guess the security guards, Deepak and Satish, Natalee and Beth didn’t work as scapegoats so now it must be the students.

      This release says nothing. Why not just come out and say that Paulus van der sloot is no longer a suspect?

      HarryTho 11/4 Natalee Holloway Update And Commentary

      In my opinion, the Wood letter was authored by a conspiracy of attorneys in Alabama and Aruba under the editorial direction of the masterminds of the Twitty-Holloway-Mansur group.

    3. Marci on November 4th, 2005 10:01 pm

      The Aruban Police want to blame the Holloway/Twitty family for the attention that has been focused on their country. The Aruban Justice System is corrupt. I read a report from a DEA person that Aruba has a huge problem with drug trafficking and money laundering. With the disappearance of Natalee the corruption in Aruba has been exposed. The Aruban Government doesn’t like that because now they must raise the volume of the afore mentioned corruption to bring in the same volume of revenue they are losing on tourism. Apparently the Aruban Government
      doesn’t understand that “THEY” lost a visitor to Aruba, who simply wanted to enjoy the Island. WHY would any one want to visit Aruba?

      Looks like business as usual.
      The belt – we don’t know where it is.
      The swatch of blue/green fabric in the hands of an investigator – what fabric?
      The bone with attached flesh – never saw it.
      The disposible camera impounded from the students – tossed out (they were disposible).
      The metal cage – unrelated.
      The cadaver dogs excited at the sand dunes – dogs did not have a license to work.
      The Dr. Phil tape – sent to Holland
      The lies – boys will be boys.
      The boys – wandering about.
      Head of the body disposal team (Papa aka Chuckie) – filing lawsuit for back pay.
      Son of Chuckie – on campus drinking beer and luring women.

      This statement is about as pointless and unconvincing as the original “Godzilla” movie. Oh no! It’s a scary monster!

      Are these people insane? I don’t believe a word these Aruban officials are printing.

      I commend the Holloway-Twitty family for their decency and their courtesy; if it were my daughter, we would have a whole different set of headlines and blogs, believe me.

      After all this, these many months and all the crap, the Prosecutor issues THIS as some sort of definitive statement?

      How sad.

    6. oneyka on November 4th, 2005 10:54 pm

      The cover up continues. Now seems the Public Prosecutor Office and Dumping want to focus on the Mountain Brook kids, why? They were over one hundred kids on that trip, but Natalee was seen for the last time in company of the three culprits.
      Is there anything clearer than that? What a system? It stinks, and so Karin Janssen and Dom…pig!

    7. BRENDA on November 5th, 2005 12:28 am

      stay on this AMERICA don’t let ARUBA twist it on AMERICANS that’s what they will try. that way it doesn’t look like they had anything to do with it. how stupid. they really are insulting are intelligience. another form of furthering this cover up!! twisted criminal minds that’s what they are all of them. CRIMINALS. self serving criminals. out for there selfs. sadistic thinking. they are mean!!

    8. D. Nichols on November 5th, 2005 12:35 am

      I am ready for the Aruba Boycott to begin.

    9. sandy on November 5th, 2005 1:36 am

      Lies lies and more lies from these officials. They havnt worked on this case from the gitgo and now we are to believe they are doing so. They have nothing to work with they threw all the evidence away or it still is sitting in some drawer because they dont want this case solved. BOYCOTT NOW……………..

    10. Jack in Southern California on November 5th, 2005 3:55 am

      WHY BETH TWITTY AND HER KABALA are blocking the interview of Natalee’s fellow students is puzzling.
      It serves to only reenforce the rumors I read about hidden agendas on the part of the TWITTYS, HOLLOWAYS and, sadly, the students from Mountain Brook High School.

      Why were detailed interviews never taken fo the students?
      Were Natalee’s brother(s) a part of the Aruban crowd?
      Where the heck were the chaparones?

      Something’s fishy and it’s not based in Aruba. It’s in Alabama.

      Time for BETH and her Kabala to fess up.


    11. robert noggle on November 5th, 2005 4:00 am

      i have to commend the twittys and holloways for thier patience! im all for pounding knucklebumps on these guys heads until they start talking, father included! coverup isnt the word for the disgrace in law enforcement in aruba, and lets not forget holland. not only should aruba be boycoted but holland also and evrything they export to the u.s.! its hard to believe holland is just sitting back letting this happen.until they step in and correct this situation they should be boycoted also. get with it holland and fire the law enforcement in aruba and get some honest people in the law in aruba!!

      Forget the Boycott! America needs to liberate Aruba of Corruption

    13. Ron Smith on November 5th, 2005 4:57 am

      Not just Boycott, But Also Liberate Aruba!

    14. Jim Hanson on November 5th, 2005 7:40 am

      I don’t blame the Aruban police wanting a statement from Beth T .. she has many many unfounded statements to be asked about.
      Let’s not forget, this case can only be investigated by the Aruban police …

    15. DougG on November 5th, 2005 8:00 am

      Broadcast the phrase “Boycott Aruba” throughout the Internet. That means, in every blog, every email address in your book, every site you can think of. Pass it on.

    16. Joe on November 5th, 2005 8:10 am

      Yet another feeble attempt of the old Aruban ‘spin machine’ at work. Hey Aruba – the family and friends of Natalee Holloway are not going to rest until the case is solved and the perps are punished. You won’t dupe the world any longer with this sort of rambling and ridiculous rhetoric…..

      I know I am getting old when news articles make me splutter in my morning Jim Beam. The “Holloway-Twitty-Mansur” team…ah, yes, Beth Holloway-Twitty has been hatching her evil scheme for years in Mountain Brook, Alabama, to destroy the tourist trade of Aruba…her first sly move is to murder her own daughter there, to implicate that son of God, the Dutchboy van Sloot. The Dutch are historically not a brave people (check your history books before you start flaming) and have an incredible capacity for denial and tolerance for evil as long as it’s profitable to them. Americans need to do whatever it takes to show them it’s not profitable…including diplomatic pressure. In the meantime, hit ‘em where it hurts – in their smug lying image as “a happy island”. (I’ve been to Aruba. Trust me on this one.)

    19. John Staton on November 5th, 2005 9:41 am

      Again a Dutch report in 1993 stated that Aruba was completely under the control of Drug Lords. The authorities are so accoustomed to being on the take that the chief investigator started out with a request for a bribe. Who will do the interviews? The ones described by the FBI as totally incompetent? Perhaps the dirty cop above that destroyed evidence and stopped a rape charge against Joran. What about Freddie (Loco Man Pimp) what happened to him? Why is he not on the hot seat being questioned?

      No, the fix is still in and the only way to get anything going is to make all of Aruba pay a very high price.

    20. Lauralynn Staton on November 5th, 2005 9:48 am

      Brenda brings up an interesting point when she says “twisted criminal minds”. Would that it would be so simple as it is on TV. Just send in the profilers from “Criminal Minds”. I’m sure Maddy Patakin and his team could do a much better investigation than the Aruban authorities. BTW does anyone know if an FBI profiler has been a part of the investigation?

      We do know who the UNSUB’s are!

    21. John Staton on November 5th, 2005 9:57 am

      Again. A Dutch report in 1993 stated that Aruba was completely under the control of Drug Lords. The authorities are so used to being corrupt that the first thing that Dennis Jacobs did was request a bribe. Who is to conduct the interviews? A FBI agent stated that the cops were inept. However, I believe that instead it was all a fix. They never wanted to find anything. Jacobs destroyed evidence and stopped a rape charge against Joran. If that had gone forward 2 more would have come out against him and 2 against the brothers.

      What ever happened to Freddie (Locoman Pimp)? He should be on the hot seat now, force him to give up what he knows and the gang rape video of the 4 of them on the girl.

      Again just more smoke and mirrors from Aruba. The only course of action is to make all of Aruba pay for what they are!

    22. chris on November 5th, 2005 10:00 am

      I should be asleep, instead I’m sitting here furious about the latest staement out of Aruba. Do these people really think we are a bunch of dumb americans who could not see that this was a cover-up from the very start?
      I think I’ll just run out and get a plane ticket to Aruba, NOT EVER……

    23. Bodo on November 5th, 2005 10:00 am

      The boys lied again and again and again and again and again. Wouldn’t it be logical to question them again and again and again and again and again? At least until they are on the same page and get their stories straight?

    24. morgan on November 5th, 2005 10:31 am

      Well, “hello” Aruba and “Welcome to the year 2005″ in which 3 of your own loving and caring sons just “LOST” a lovely girl and apparently you think it all has to do with the United States. Let the boycott proceed as planned…heard that rich guy say Aruba will not be able to get a “bar of soap” once it starts….

    25. dennisintn on November 5th, 2005 11:29 am

      i haven’t seen anything written by an mb student or parent that faintly resembles a reluctance to be reinterviewed. dompig just needs to quit talking about it and get on with it. showing up here unannounced one day and demanding to talk to l30 students and adults the next day won’t wash though.

      the f.b.i. should be involved, and not just as observers. mb should be willing to comp everything for the arubans, without bragging and bitching about it later, and show them true southern hospitality while they’re here. yes, i know, southerners don’t need to be reminded of that last part at all.

      the bottom line is, give them nothing to add to their propensity to blame natalee’s family and friends for the slowness of the investigation.

    26. rafael on November 5th, 2005 1:09 pm

      We all have our theories,
      the one thing that stands clear in my mind is Aruba is focused on one thing, repairing its image. Finding Natalie is bad for its image. So they don’t want her found, they want this thing to go away. But they want it to go away while they make it look like they are doing everthing possible to locate her. Folks, we don’t have to call for a boycott, the world is watching and their tourism dollars are going to take a hit anyway. By the way, I thought Beth was going on the Oprah show, does anyone know if this is still happening????????

    27. Richard on November 5th, 2005 1:38 pm

      Despite their self-promotion, I don’t see anything about new suspects or new leads in here. All I see is that they want to interview some of the kids from Mountain Brook … and haven’t they already said what they have to say?

      I think that they’re really just trying to divert attention from the announcement by the UNIFIED Holloway Twitty family that they want new personnel in the probe. Finally Dave, Beth, and Jug are all saying the same thing … and that doesn’t bode well for the Aruba government.

      Clint van Zandt said that perhaps the Dutch government could send a new team. I don’t think anyone has confidence in the Aruba clowns … and if those people continue to dither and try to point the finger away from their own cover-up, then we the American people ought to insist that our government start treating Aruba as it deserves. After all, the primary function of our government is to protect its citizens … at least, that’s what it used to be.

    28. James Jenkins on November 5th, 2005 2:00 pm

      The Aruban government/police/attorneys appear to be very deceiving and corupt but is there really anything that American citizens can do ?? I would imagine that behind closed doors the corupt ones are laughing knowing that Beth T and others will not reach their goals of finding much about natalee. It is so sad. If O.J. can escape a murder charge in OUR COUNTRY..then perhaps we all need to face the facts that Aruba will “get off the hook” too.

    29. Dave on November 5th, 2005 7:56 pm

      Jim Hanson,


      Let’s not forget the Aruban police are in up to there corupted necks!

      Go Beth take Aruba DOWN!

    30. mchenry on November 5th, 2005 9:18 pm

      I will believe this when I see the witness! The Aurba LE is totally incompetent! They do not have a clue how to investigate a crime. The three being asked to be replaced should be fired for: loosing evidence, throwing away evidence, not following through with questioning, searching the V place, and letting the 3 guys last seen with Natalee run loose for days. They have covered up and tried to sweep this case under the rug. The 3 suspects have lied under oath-CHARGE THEM WITH PERJURY! I don’t care who they are friends with-THEY ARE USELESS! I will not travel to Aruba untill Natalee is returned to her family. I wonder how may of these Aurba LE have had a missing child in another country? Bring in a new investigation teem and have them GET TO WORK!

    31. dianne on November 5th, 2005 11:14 pm

      Boycott Aruba…. I’d stay home before I’d go on vacation to Aruba. I will NEVER go there… and I will tell everyone that is considering going there about this case. Aruba Sucks!

    32. Billy Goat Jesse on November 5th, 2005 11:26 pm

      I agree, I dont think O.J. Simpson actually did it himself, but its more than likely he had his son or someone else do it.

      In regards to this case, Aruba should be forced to hand over all of the suspects to US custody. the Kalpoes and the Van Der Sloots including Van Stratten, Mike Posner, and Mr. Pink.

      There are Evil Forces in Aruba that need to be exposed.

    33. Sue on November 6th, 2005 5:44 am

      They Will only get away with being Corrupt If we are quiet and Beth goes quiet
      We have to help keep the pressure on Aruba If that means writing letters to the goverment in Holland, ( I get the impression the ones in Aruba cant read)
      It is critical that everyone that supports the family just keep on talking, If you chat put it in your profile list it anywhere someone online will read, Keep it very visual..I have the link to the petition on my personal profile anyone clicks all they have to do is sign.. We have to keep the faith for the family, Beth has said time and time again it is the support of the americans that help her get through
      We cant let her down now

    34. dennisintn on November 7th, 2005 11:51 am

      giving dompig the benefit of the doubt. if he can prove that natalee was not drunk or drugged at the time jvds and the kalpoes got there, and then not long after they got there, she was acting out of character for natalee, that would go a long way to suggest if not prove positively that drugs were slipped into her drink.

      jvds’ friends and schoolmates know he has bragged about using date rape drugs on visiting girls before. the reasons given for pvds’ suspension and arrest was for the “no body, no case” advice and also for his talking to jvds’ friends from school before and after they had been talked to by ale.

    35. commonsense on November 8th, 2005 11:15 am

      To the boycott crowd,
      Enough already! Boycott if you want! It won’t help. Of the 30 people I work with, only me, myself, and I know much about this story. 4 have been to Aruba this year, and one is there now. Looking for Natalee? No, enjoying the island for vacation. This is the way it is. Not enough people know this case to boycott. And those who do know it well, don’t believe there is a conspiracy against the Twitty family. Most are sick of this story. More see the mother as a villian to an extent. I can tell you that most have their own questions, and they are directed at the family.
      So get on with your boycott already! Are you waiting for some magic “gentleman, start you boycott” to be said first? I would bet that 99 percent of you had no plans to go there anyway, so you are not pulling money out of the island. Tourism there is strong. It is still the safest island out there. It was an isolated case.
      I will be in Aruba again in February. It will be me and 20 co-workers with our significant others. We can’t wait. Sorry, no boycott will make us change our minds.
