AMSTERDAM — Aruba’s Public Prosecutor’s Office (OM) has expressed regret about a row over the choice of an actor has distracted attention away from the goal of the television reconstruction of the events leading up to the disappearance of US teenager Natalee Holloway.

Minister plenipotentiary Paul Comenencia of the Netherlands Antilles accused prosecutors and the makers of the re-enactment of “consciously and manifestly distorting the facts of the case” by picking a non-white actor to play the main suspect, white Dutch teenager Joran van der Sloot.

Comenencia suggested the choice of actor reinforced a Dutch stereotype about criminals. He said this raised questions about the accuracy of the rest of the reconstruction.
