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.
