One would have thought this matter of volunteer questioning would have been discussed by Steve Cohen back in the very beginning when the issue was brought up that the three suspects would be brought in for questioning?
It is expected that he will be re-questioned somewhere in the next 10-day period. I doubt that they will bring him back for questioning immediately, but it will be in that period. And also, it is expected the Kalpoes will also be brought in for questioning.
But as we later learned from Steve Cohen, “we all misjudged the process”. Did we? Or did we all just believe what we were being told by those who were put in charge to make sure that the American Press got the correct information and did not report erroneous information?
Amigoe: January 11, 2006; The suspects in the Holloway-case will not be interrogated
ARUBA Ã¢â‚¬” The three suspects in the Holloway-case will not be interrogated for the time being. Steve Cohen, spokesperson of the Strategic Communications Task Force announced in several American media that they would be interrogated. But suspects cannot be forced into new interrogations, unless there is new evident, which is not the case.
Right before the turn of the year, the Public Prosecution (OM) had sent the lawyers of Joran van der Sloot, Deepak and Satish Kalpoe an invitation for a conversation. Anthony Carlo, Van der Sloot’s lawyer: “We did not accept the invitation.”
One of the issues during the conversation would have been the recording that Jamie Skeeters had made of Deepak Kalpoe and broadcasted it in Dr. Phil’s show. Also the brothers Kalpoe had declined a conversation with the investigation team. The Court released the suspects from custody in September and the OM didn’t like this. Neither of them had to remain available for interrogations, meaning that this can only be done voluntarily now. This can only happen if or when the OM can come up with new evidence.
