      Awesome job,,Richard, Hotshot and Observer.. It’s amazing Aruba can spend all that money to come here to try to lure in more tourists and had no money to spend looking for what happened to Natalee.

      I remember them coming on here whining what it cost for hotel rooms for Natalee’s family and food etc. Why don’t they tell us what they have spent to come here to lure in more tourists. Why don’t they tell us the money spent to send people out to smear Natalee and her family.

      Come to the popular night spot CnC where the local guys lurk waiting on female tourists on their last night in Aruba at closing time. Watch your drinks though, because according to Dennis Jacobs, they put stuff in them. Oh we’ve done this 20 times before and nothing bad happened..

      All 5 of you thank you!

    2. San on March 25th, 2007 8:32 pm

      Great job Klaas.

      One hotel manager in Aruba who came over and said how sympathetic she was and she supported what they did. She was from America.

      Other Arubans were generally avoiding them and they had gotten a few nasty comments.

      Why are they avoiding them. If they have nothing to hide then they don’t need to avoid.

      The people who went to Boston did a great job.

    3. nonesuche on March 25th, 2007 8:44 pm

      Great job by the Boston team and also by Dana and SM and Klaasend working in tandem on this !

      Klaasend the video rocks !!

    4. Carpe Noctem on March 25th, 2007 10:22 pm

      GOOD JUBE PEOPLE! REALLY GOOD. You should be proud.



      Joran van der Sloot: ******* I couldn’t have expected that this would happen *****, but if I had been guilty I wouldn’t have come here. Im not afraid of it, I didn’t do anything evil, I didn’t do anything wrong.








      …but if I had been guilty I wouldn’t have come here. Im not afraid of it, I didn’t do anything evil, I didn’t do anything wrong.

      Reporter: Was it a smart idea coming over to New York?

      Paul van der Sloot: Well, it’s a choice that was made and we’ll have to live with the consequences.


      Anita van der sloot:

      This is exactly what happened, what our lawyer in Aruba umm he has I think foreseen this and that’s the reason he didn’t want to travel with us, because he didn’t want to be responsible and we thought ..oh well, no big deal, it will not happen, but what is happening now…

    5. Carpe Noctem on March 25th, 2007 10:23 pm

      uh, I meant J-O-B. LOL

      Aru-Bay Missing Video

      The Missing Aru-Bay Video: What is it and why haven’t we seen it again? (Click the movies titled ‘small movies’ 11620051 through 11620059. These are date formatted. 11620051 = 6/11/2005 file #1. And so on.)

      First of all let me assure you all that it DOES in fact exist. I know because I am the only person that has seen it beside the poster Jacy(Just Me) who sent it to me. I now believe she worked in some capacity to get the Aruban message out then promptly disappeared when the Aru-Bay Video fiasco imploded on them. There is always the chance that she was an unwilling dupe in this instance.

      As I have related many times that video shows men in BIO-SUITS and a small white EURO style white van. The van may actually be a Japanese Daihatsu.


      Daihatsu Van. Closest I could find to the Van in the Missing Video. Dushi Bagels delivery van is almost an exact match to Van in the Missing Video. Van in Missing Video does not have back windows.

      In the video it appears that men in the Bio-Suits are examining a crime scene in the rock area behind the California Lighthouse and are preparing to gather forensic evidence.

      Seems harmless enough and does not seem to imply anything nefarious.

      Is that what really happened?

      The ‘missing video’ is the first in the Aru-Bay series and has eluded the grasp of everyone trying to retrieve it. It appears to have been shot very early in the morning and the person with the two dogs is wearing a windbreaker jacket (possibly green in color). After about 8-9 am, it would be too hot to wear a windbreaker. In the other videos, the person is no longer wearing the windbreaker.

      Is it evidence or more obstruction?

      I now believe this VAN delivered the body parts and heads to the rock area from a grave(s) or the morgue.

      The HEADS in the remaining videos are slightly decomposed and not skeletal. As Carpe Noctem found, there is one head with the tongue hanging out and what appears to be a bullet hole in the right temple and a piece of gauze covering the exit wound on the left side.

      Why is that video missing?

      I believe if it ever re-appeared it would show conclusively that the ALE and Visibility Team created the crime scene behind the lighthouse. IT WOULD SHOW WHAT NO ONE WANTS TO BELIEVE. It would show the ALE and Visibility Team transporting body parts to the rocks area. DIRTY HAND, the ALE and the Aruban Authorities did in fact try to obstruct JUSTICE for Natalee and her Family as early as 6/9/2005. This plan must have been hatched days before.

      We all know that the ATA (Aruba Tourism Authority) and Tamara Waldron began posting on message boards as early as 6/5/2005. The messages they posted are clear for all to see. It was everyone’s fault but Paulus and Joran Van Der Sloots, and the Kalpoe Brothers.

      The attempt to steer the investigation away from the Van Der Sloot house was a diabolical plan conceived at the highest levels of the Aruban Government.

      Any Government that would go to these lengths to hide the TRUTH is dangerous. VERY DANGEROUS.

      Please remember that Prime Minister Nelson Oduber returned from Fort Lauderdale on the morning of 6/9/2005 and gave a press conference at 11 am on the case.

      To protect Tourism and the Van Der Sloots, Aruba went to extraordinary lengths.

      Exposing the COVER-UP that the Aruban Government created has taken time, but the picture is becoming clearer everyday.

      Are these videos still important?

      YES, they are more important now than ever. The ‘Missing Video’ needs to be recovered so the true intent of the ALE, Visibility Team, and the Aruban Authorities can be exposed to the WORLD.

      We need to know why Ed Smith has a video titled Natalee 3 on his site and why it is ‘FORBIDDEN’. Notice that the spelling of Natalee’s name is the correct spelling. It is not a coincidence.

      Nothing that has happened is by chance alone no matter how loud those on Aruba and their allies scream.

      I just heard Dana’s interview with you. Great Job! You have got a spectacular voice for radio (and I’m assuming T.V. also). You were Sincere and heart-felt. Just fantastic.


    8. Patti on March 25th, 2007 11:04 pm

      Anita thinks it’s no big deal to go to New York?

      Too bad she wasn’t in Boston!

      Great Job, Folks! (as Richard likes to call us)

      If they come, again, we’ll be there!

      Boycott Aruba…

    9. Carpe Noctem on March 25th, 2007 11:22 pm

      What kills me is that shes such a dimmed bulb
      waafting pile of dog stink!

      Duh, our attorney told us this what happened,
      but duhhhhhhh, THE SPORTER has to “call is shots.”


      WHICH WAY DE HE GO??? – cartoon

      Hey man, where’s THE SKIPPER, who’s driving
      the VAN DER SLOOT BOAT? Anitaaaa?

    10. Richard on March 25th, 2007 11:23 pm

      Thanks for the attention, Red and Tom, and for the good wishes that so many people have expressed. (I gather that on the “hate sites,” some other kinds of wishes have been expressed, but that’s par for the course.)

      We actually did get some TV coverage; passersby on Sunday (today) said they saw us on the local Channel 7 news, and saw me in an “exclusive” interview with the local Fox News on Saturday.

      Be assured this is not because of my stunning good looks (in the photos, I’m the short guy in front) or acting ability, but just that they came by when the other four of us were somewhere else.

      I’ll be sending Red some comments on the whole event, but have to get some sleep first. We who went thought it was definitely effective and worthwhile … and Aruba Tourism Authority was definitely on the lookout for us!

      See you later.

    11. k on March 25th, 2007 11:36 pm

      Way to Go to the faithful people seeking “Justice for Natalee”!

    12. Carpe Noctem on March 25th, 2007 11:51 pm

      You looked fine to us Richard.

      … & I know dang well
      you looked good to Nat and her family, as someone

    16. Miss-Underestimated on March 26th, 2007 10:18 am

      You all have done a great job. Richard, Hotshot, Observer, Dana. This is great. Every missing person should have advocates like you to help them be found and justice served.

      I stand a salute.

    17. Carpe Noctem on March 26th, 2007 10:28 am

    18. Janet on March 26th, 2007 11:27 am

      You guys did just great! Thank you.

    19. Arubaanse on March 26th, 2007 12:10 pm

      Wow:D I have more respect now for Richard,Hotshot and Observer!

      What ashame that my fellow Arubans were avoiding them :(
      That just shows you how ignorant they really are. The only thing some of them could do best was giving them a dirty look and nasty comments. Wow, immatures. I just hope that you guys have this in the back of your head that not all of us are like these people. These people only care about money and doing busniss, nothing else, not even about their fellow Arubans.

      Btw Klaasend, how are you? It’s been such a long time since we last time spoke to eachother


      SM:   I’m fine.   Big hugs to you though, I read about the accident…I’m so sorry :(   (klaasend)

    20. Arubaanse on March 26th, 2007 12:30 pm

      I know Klaasend:( I still can not believe it but it is gods will and we have to accept that:(

    21. Arubaanse on March 26th, 2007 12:38 pm

      I like to think that he is in far better place now. But thank you Klaasend!

    22. Dan in Tx on March 26th, 2007 12:51 pm

      There is one thing that puzzles me: what could Aruba possibly gain by not surrendering Natalee’s body the second it was found (or at least letting her family ID it)? The Rebecca Middleton murder in Bermuda shows that the result if a body is discovered and announced to survivors immediately is that the family takes their daughter home, has the funeral, grieves, and assumes justice would be served (of course in Rebecca’s case it has not to date). How many people have heard of Rebecca Middleton to date? How many have heard of Natalee Holloway?

      Either Aruba has not found Natalee yet (and is probably not interested in doing that as evinced by their piss-poor track record and lack of results today), or she’s not on the island (and I do NOT mean in the water I mean nowhere near Aruba). From a tourism perspective, allowing this to go unsolved and witholding a body could only result in ruin to their economy. And as arrogant and stupid as ALE and the Oduber government is, they’re not so stupid as to jeopardize their entire economy and place in governmental power in this way.

      Don’t make the mistake certain investigators in the case have and assume she is dead…or died in Aruba as the suspects claim. I can think of worse things and worse scandals than death, and these have not been decisively ruled out.

    23. Dan in Tx on March 26th, 2007 12:55 pm


      The government and ALE are 100% to blame for this fiasco. We don’t blame the Aruban people; I really don’t even blame the ATA for protecting their investments and clients.

      But what I would like you to answer is: why do Arubans tolerate a government that obviously can only lie and make excuses and not produce results? If Aruba is a representative government, then why do you not hold the government to a higher standard than you’re getting?

      Dave and others on Aruba have often said they felt the Arubans were afraid to say too much. Who is an entire island afraid of?

    24. Carpe Noctem on March 26th, 2007 2:22 pm

      Hiya Arubaanse, hope all is well in your world. I missed you.

    25. Arubaanse on March 26th, 2007 2:31 pm

      Dan in TX, first of all, how are you?

      I know that Americans don’t blame the Aruban people. I have many friends in US and they are nice to me and the monkeys have always been kind to me and they have always told me that they don’t blame the Arubans.

      And to answer your questions. Arubans don’t see the reason why Nel Oduber would be involved in a cover up for a dutch boy. Nel is someone who is known for not taking any crap from the dutch people. He is famous for that. My fellow Arubans believe that he won’t risk our economy for a dutch boy and his dutch papa. So I think that is why Arubans don’t believe that he cover this up. ARubans are mostly for the MEP party and they believe that people like Jossy Mansur( who is pro AVP party) is trying to destroy Nel. It’s actually a pretty long story. I personally don’t want to see AVP nor MEP as our Government anymore. I want them to give other party a chance.

      Who is an entire island afraid of? Good question. I have no idea. I don’t understand why they are afraid or of who they are afraid of. The only thing i know is that, if i knew what happened to Natalee, i would have broadcast it along time ago.
      But i do know this and i think this plays a role why Arubans don’t talk too much. I have been called many times, fake aruban, Aruba hater, unpatriotic and so on and so on, just because i said that i believe that there is a coverup. I have been told many times to shut up cuz i don’t know what i am talking about. But my problems is, i don’t know what shut up means and i always say what i think. Alot people in Aruba are worried about their reputation, oh my god, what would people think of them and blah blah. My family are like that, they care too much what other people will say and I don’t care what people think of me.

      Anyway Dan,
      take care

    26. Arubaanse on March 26th, 2007 2:32 pm

      hey carpe, that is so sweet, i missed you too:)

    27. vicki on March 26th, 2007 2:54 pm

      Arubaanse, we all missed you. Sorry about your troubles. I just wanted to thank you for being real.

    28. Miss-Underestimated on March 26th, 2007 3:10 pm


      I take from the posts here that you have suffered a loss, I am sorry to hear that and hope you are doing well.

      I truly feel for the ppl of Aruba, if Aruba has done this to a tourist and her family, one can imagine what is being done to her own citizens. My question for you though, is too what extent of the tentacles of Paulus and Smid, go into the government and LE? Smid, I believe called off the search of the sloot main residence.

    29. Arubaanse on March 26th, 2007 3:12 pm

      hey Vicki, thank you, how are you? I missed all of you monkeys out there!

      Don’t be sorry, he is in a better place now. He sleeps in the arms of God now.

    30. Arubaanse on March 26th, 2007 3:26 pm

      Hi miss-underestimated, how r you doing? I am doing much better thank you.

      You know, to be honest with you, i have no idea. Funny thing is, that i have family working in the ALE and it didn’t cross my mind to ask them about Paul and Smid. Thank you, I will go back to Aruba soon. I will annoy them with more questions

    31. Miss-Underestimated on March 26th, 2007 4:06 pm

      Thanks Arubaanse, you take care. I will wait to hear from you.

    32. hotshot on March 26th, 2007 5:13 pm

      Hey Arubaanse, haven’t heard from you in a while, and did loose your email with my computer crash. Sorry for your loss. When will you be going back to Aruba, and for how long? Email me if you’d like, all my tickle/zorpia/myspace sites are not working for me anymore, so I can’t get your messages there. Looking foward to hearing from you.

    33. Dan in Tx on March 26th, 2007 5:20 pm


      I am not trying to be confrontational, but what you have told me about not knowing what Arubans are afraid of is not new to me. However, people who were in Aruba (Natalee’s family, TES volunteers, PIs) have all said the Arubans seem afraid of someone or something. So these two accounts are not matching.

      As for Nels covering up for a Dutch boy- not for a Dutch boy but for the island’s reputation. But understand this- not allowing an undeniably honest, transparent, uncorrupted investigation had done far more damage than Natalee’s disappearance. The gov’t claims it is illegal to let the FBI or Dutch become involved in the investigation, but the truth is there is no precendece. That is not the same as illegal.
      The truth is, the gov’t could allow the FBI and Dutch to be as involved as they want- and if they refuse to we have to ask why?

      Now, please comment on Aruba’s past history of drug smuggling, money laundering, and corruption / graft charges against Rudy Croes in the last two years. Please comment on the Caruana-Cuntreras scandal of the late 1980s. Is this the thype of thing Oduber is really trying to protect Aruba’s reputation from?

    34. Pali druif on March 26th, 2007 6:39 pm

      Dan in TX:

      The Dutch (Royal Dutch Police Dept.) have taken over the investigation…

      About your questions to Arubaanse:

      1. Drug Smuggling: There is now the NA and Aruban Coastguard

      2. Money Laundering:
      Look at the Aruba part.

      3. Graft charges against Rudy Croes ???? What do you mean by this ?

      4. Caruana-Cuntreras scandal…1980 ??? That is like 27 years ago…What is that of importance for 2007 ??

    35. Carpe Noctem on March 26th, 2007 8:45 pm


      in drug trade, money laundering, and human trafficking!

      Not saying that Natalee was sold for sex slavery or anything…

      I am saying -

      …with that happened to her… some of the players
      exposed, would rip the friggin doors
      off of Dutch/Aruban Mafioso.


      Aruba has washed a lot of “DIRTY LAUNDRY” baby. Let’s
      leave it at that.

      …and of course they will be exposed
      one by one now, it is the only avenue they
      left open.

      f’n idiots, serves you right. what WERE YOU THINKIN’

      FARRRRRRR to overlook it now. Natalee & her family
      deserve better, just like your family member
      would deserve it too.

      The complete stupidity with which they have tried to cover THIS UP… is absolutelllllly breathtaking!

      If they’d upped those responsible from the start, this would have been put to sleep in 30 – 90 days.
      GAME OVER,MAN. No further questions asked!

      BUT N*O*W —-

      It has turned into a CBS DRAMA FRIGGING MINI SERIES, and it’s gonna get A LOT WORSE… if the appropriate parties responsible — DO NOT “SEE A MAN ABOUT A THING” —as they say on the SOPRANOS. IMO — Their lives will not
      be worth a plug nickel. …and maybe that’s for
      the better for everyone at the end of the day. :-) -J4N

    36. Richard on March 26th, 2007 10:04 pm

      Arubaanse, sorry to hear of the unfortunate events in your family. Best wishes to you.

      I made the comment about the “dirty looks”; I don’t know if any of the other people at Boston got them (or noticed them), but I was the first one on the ground and definitely got the feeling that the guy hanging around outside was on the lookout for the protesters. His expression was mean to the nth degree.

      However, most of the other people in our group spent more time inside the exhibition hall talking with the Aruban staff than I did. With the exception of one white blond lady, who seemed distinctly unfriendly, I didn’t hear about any other expressions of outright hostility.

      And one woman of American background took the trouble to come over and say (something like) she supported our doing what we felt we had to do. She is the owner of a hotel in Aruba. I won’t identify her any more closely than that.

      When the Aruban staff came outside for cigarette breaks, I got the impression that they had been instructed mostly to ignore us, or to pretend to take no notice.

      I know that at least one passerby with whom I talked did what I suggested: he went in and told the delegation that he would never go to Aruba, and why (because of Natalee).

      He said that he talked to four different people there, and that they were politely regretful. He said they replied that they had been given instructions not to discuss the Natalee Holloway case. Some of my colleagues evidently did manage to get some comments early in the exhibition, but maybe they changed their plan of action as things went on.

    37. Patti on March 27th, 2007 7:42 am

      Pali Druif:

      I wish that you could understand. We do not hate Arubans. If anything, Arubans can benefit, in many ways, from the things that are going on as a result of the fact that the corruption on your island raised its’ ugly head in the case of Natalee Ann Holloway. There is nothing worse than being lied to and pushed around by a bunch of thugs. And, though, I don’t have any personal experience in that regard, I would imagine that the same is true and perhaps even worse if the lying and battering is coming from your own government.

      The report that you sited in your post regarding the money laundering operations on Aruba comes from our own State Department. There are certain tests and reporting requirements that have been put in place to assure that every man, woman and child be aware of the issues that can influence their well-being… it benefits all of us. Some may think that the State Department doesn’t have any business interferring with their affairs, but it is through their efforts that crime that is committed on a grand scale; the type that effects world safety, is addressed through these reports.

      We have already reviewed reports that have to do with human trafficking, drug trafficking and travel advisories. The link that you posted, above, for money laundering is the latest report and although I didn’t check the date of the report, I can assume that it was prepared sometime in March of 2007 as that is when these reports are due. The 2007 report discloses information obtained from the countries for the year of 2006.

      Here’s the information from the State Department Country Report ~ Aruba, 2007 Report for the year of 2006:

      The MOT is authorized to inspect all banks, money remitters, casinos, insurance companies and brokers for compliance with reporting requirements for suspicious transactions and the identification requirements for all financial transactions. The MOT is currently staffed by 12 employees. By September 2006, the MOT received 5,017 suspicious transaction reports, resulting in 86 investigations conducted and 22 cases transferred to the appropriate authorities. In June 2000, Aruba enacted a State Ordinance making it a legal requirement to report the cross-border transportation of currency in excess of 20,000 Aruban guilders to the customs department. The law also applies to express courier mail services. Reports generated are forwarded to the MOT to review, and in 2005, approximately 872 such reports were submitted. No data was provided for 2006.

      The MOT shares information with other national government departments. On April 2, 2003, the MOT signed an information exchange agreement with the Aruba Tax Office, which is in effect and being implemented. Recently, the MOT and the Central Bank signed an information exchange memorandum of understanding (MOU), effective January 2006. The MOT is not linked electronically to the police or prosecutor’s office. The MOT is a member of the Egmont Group and is authorized by law to share information with members of the Egmont Group through MOUs.

      Aruba signed a multilateral directive with Colombia, Panama, the United States and Venezuela to establish an international working group to fight money laundering occurring through the Black Market Peso Exchange (BMPE). The final set of recommendations on the BMPE was signed on March 14, 2002. The working group developed policy options and recommendations to enforce actions that will prevent, detect and prosecute money laundering through the BMPE. The GOA is in the process of implementing the recommendations.

      Note: It appears nothing has been done to adhere to a money laundering act that was placed into effect in 2002. And… no information regarding moneys being transferred into the country for the year.

    38. Patti on March 27th, 2007 8:11 am


      The reason that I am concerned is this:

      Aruba has, over the last few years, been a target area for many crimes that are committed on an international level. The fact that they are being bombarded by drugs, both from Venezuela and Columbia, is troubling enough. The fact that there is human trafficking; the trafficking of women from one country to another is even more troubling. But the fact that they are in the business of laundering money is proof, beyond a doubt, that there are dirty dealings going on in Aruba and that the money attained from these dirty dealings stops there.

      What does that mean for Aruba… the average Joe?

      It means that there is an underground world that is being operated, on a daily basis, in many of its’ above ground operations. It means that there are people operating their dirty business among a group of peaceful, kind and loving people. These people’s lives are effected. There are men, women and children being shuffled on and off that island. People that are being used and manipulated to do what is required of them, by a group of people that are lining their pockets with the dirty money that comes from these enterprises. Whether it be to prostitute themselves, or to pick-up or drop-off drugs, or to simply ship these human beings on to another island or country; these illegal activities are going on, underneath the daily operations of everyday life. The ones that oversea these operations are vry violent and the average person is looked upon, by them, as being nothing more than a pawn… or a threat, if they are living outside of these operations.

      The average Joe, as we call him, could fall victim by their mere presence. Being a witness to these operations would be enough to make a person want to leave everything behind and flee, perhaps to the Netherlands, or to someplace where they feel safe. But, in the case of the common Joe, that is not possible… they are forced to live where they are being bombarded by the drugs, prostitution and violence that comes with the territory of organized crime.

      The people of Aruba live in fear. There small island is being attacked by thugs, drug lords and pimps that have enough money and power to effect the outcome of any investigation. The corruption that exists in Aruba effects every single aspect of their lives. Justice is non-existent as the very ones committing the crimes have the means to tip the scales in their favor. An operation of this magnitude on an island of less than 100,000 people is nothing shy of pure tyranny.

      I fear for Aruba.

      Interesting creative story, but which I think cannot be backed up by facts…

      Everybody can read everywhere bits and pieces of information, and try to make sense of it all by “connecting some dots”…

      That is what I think you have done…Nothing more and nothing less than “connecting some dots”…

      Aruba is a peaceful island, with some problems yes (as is everywhere in the world), but not as sensationalist as in your story…

      Maybe not, but certainly the connection of the dots along with the reality that there are many people on your island that are living in a state of fear, creates a picture very similar to what I described.

      The State Department is not going to draw us a picture, but they do encourage us to use the information that they provide in deciding where we go on vacation and the dangers that certain areas may pose to the unsuspecting tourist.

      I pray that the island of Aruba and the many sweet, innocent people that live there benefit from the boycott that we have against their island. I hope that they will find their own justice, one day, and their independence from an island that is bombarded by those that are only interested in money and the things that it can buy for them. I also hope that the dirty hands that are making their own government corrupt and their laws crooked, will soon be abolished. But most of all, I pray that the American “girl” named Natalee will, finally, find her way home.

      Yes Patti, ;-)

      In other words, we’ve been doing the job that the
      as the A.L.E. DIDN’T/WOULDN’T DO

      We are the DOT CONNECTORS.

      … not a bad to be thing to be.

      When juxtaposed
      with unchained frauds, like
      those of A.L.E. & ARUBAN GOV. -j4n
