Looks like some more nice treatment of tourists in Aruba. From Diario,
Trahando como bouncer na un club nocturno den tempo liber….EMPLEADO DI GOBIERNO DETENI PA MALTRATO SERIO RIBA TURISTA. (Diario 9/18/06)
We don’t remember reading about this recreation that one could have on Aruba in the travel brochures. Funny, don’t remember reading about a visit to the hospital after being beat up by a bouncer as one of the things to do while in Aruba. Let’s hope it was no one that came to Aruba aboard the maiden voyage of JetBlue.
Aruba, you are one event away from losing all tourism … this was close … We do not yet know the nationality of the tourist.
GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE ARRESTED FOR SERIOUS MISTREATMENT OF A TOURIST
ORANJESTAD(AAN) A public worker that in his spare time works at a night club is now under arrest for heavy battery against a tourist who had to be taken to a hospital after the beating.
The public employee goes by the last name F. Contrary to Holland, where an Aruban died as a result of mistreatment by various bouncers, this one in Aruba is under arrest for the act that he committed.
What happened exactly we do not know, but the public employee is in prison and will probably lose his job. It seems that the tourist had to be interned in the hospital for the beating that he received.
Detectives on this case arrested the suspect while the tourist has already left for his country.
