Joran Van der Sloot still a suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway as judge denies Joran’s petition. One wonders how Joran’s civil defense attorney, Joe Tacopina, can make the statements that no one can call his client a predator or murderer when his client is a lead suspect in a crime that is a potential sexual assault and murder. If judge Smid of CuraÃƒ §ao said its ok to continue to call Joran a suspect, what exactly does everyone think he’s is suspected of doing?
Interesting loss for Joran Van der Sloot and really the first since he was let out of jail in late summer.
HUEZ A NENGA PETICION DI ABOGADO CARLO, DI DECLARA JORAN VAN DER SLOOT COMO NO SOSPECHOSO
ORANJESTAD (AAN): Wednesday, the judge’s decision became known, in the case which attorney Carlo brought forward, representing Joran van der Sloot.
Attorney Antony Carlo started a case a few weeks back, to request that the Public Prosecutor declare that his client Joran van der Sloot is officially no longer a suspect in the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, or to instruct the Public Prosecutor to set a period of time within which they have to start a case against his client.
Both petitions were denied by judge Smid of CuraÃƒ §ao.

Superior Court rejects attorney Carlo’s demand
Penal investigation against Joran van der Sloot is not closed
Bondia, March 9, 2006
ORANJESTAD Ã¢â‚¬” Last Monday, attorney Carlo started a case in which he asked the Superior Court to close the penal case against his client, Joran van der Sloot.
For this case, a judge from CuraÃƒ §ao traveled to Aruba, in which Mr. Carlo as well as the representative of the Public Prosecutor widely debated in court. Treatment of the case took place behind closed doors, which made it difficult for Bon Dia Aruba to cover it. However, an investigation conducted by Bon Dia Aruba shows that Mr. Carlo, among other facts that there is no new developments in the investigation, argued that they have to close the penal investigation against Joran van der Sloot.
Tuesday, the Superior Court handed down the sentence in CuraÃƒ §ao and yesterday, the verdict was finally known. Bond Dia Aruba has understood that the Superior Court denied Mr. Carlo’s demand. This means that the Superior Court is not closing the penal investigation against Joran van der Sloot.
