Amigoe; April 12, 2006: Dompig resigned voluntarily
ARUBA Ã¢â‚¬” The Strategic Communication Task Force indicated that Gerold Dompig voluntarily resigned his post as managing the investigation on the disappeared Natalee Holloway. The Public Prosecutor mentioned that the Dutch investigation team has not found anything in the Holloway-case. The team is meanwhile back in the Netherlands.
The Task Force says that Dompig’s decision to resign was a combination of factors. One of them was the media’s criticism in the Netherlands, Aruba, and the United States on the statements he made about the progress of the investigation. And, even more important, the case is now entering a critical, analytic phase, which is especially the expertise of Dompig’s substitute Dolfi Richardson. Dompig stays with the Corps and will continue providing Richardson with advice on the case.
The search of the Dutch specialists was unsuccessful. They used dead body search dogs, ground radar, and metal detectors to find Holloway’s body. The police together with analysts and under leadership of Richardson are reviewing the whole case. The investigation on the missing Holloway continues.
