Amigoe: Namdar has offered the Aruban government party MEP one million florins in bribery … Hmm


Investigations requested by Rudy Lampe (RED) in Aruba on bribery and attempt to bribery charges. These seem to be rather serious allegations coming from Lampe. Aruba … bribery? Say it isn’t so Joe, or Rudy Lampe as the case may be.

The Aruban Parliament-member Rudy Lampe (RED) presses for an international investigation in the Namdar-case.   The investigation must include Aruba and the Neth.Antilles and also the Netherlands and the United States.  

Amigoe; March 29, 2007: International investigation in Namdar-case  

WILLEMSTAD/ORANJESTAD – The Aruban Parliament-member Rudy Lampe (RED) presses for an international investigation in the Namdar-case.   The investigation must include Aruba and the Neth.Antilles and also the Netherlands and the United States.  

The Namdar-case involves both Aruba and Curacao.   It appears from leaked out e-mails that the American diamond dealer and businessman Effy Namdar has offered the Aruban government party MEP one million florins in bribery.   It appears from correspondence that refers to the Tourist Minister of Curacao in May 2006, that also the Curacao commissioner Ivan Strick (Finance and Tourism, FOL) and possibly also the former Tourism-commissioner Gerrit Schotte (MPK then, MAN now, have been in contact with Namdar.  

In the meantime, also the following politicians are involved in the matter: Governor Fredis Refunjol, former MEP-minister, Tourism-minister Edison Briesen (MEP), former minister Glenbert Croes (OLA), who most likely plays a part with regard to Curacao.

Lampe wants an international investigation, considering all these names from several countries involved in the matter.   “These are serious accusations.   It’s about bribery and attempts to bribery.   There are UN-treaties against bribery.   It is therefore best that all the countries in question join forces and have this case thoroughly investigated”, said Lampe who was an active priest before.

      Bribery is wrong and everything… but human life

      is worth more! Aruba needs a priority overhaul.

      Apparently, Aruba is still sucking with

      a great PURPLE puckerish passion.

      They did not receive the MEMO!

      Hey, Rudy if you really get a wild hair up it dude,

      why don’t you request an international investigation

      on what happened to Natalee Holloway. I mean, one where

      you get the answers at the END, after you’re done! As

      opposed to this effing limp Twizzler EXCUSE of an

      investigation that is SUPPOSED TO BE GOING ON NOW.

      (one where you already knew what the answers would be,

      before you started.) — Hmmmmm? —


      okayyy, enjoy this broadcast day.

      Riches…primary political motivation for Status Aparte.

      An International Investigation?

      Wonder what role Aruba will allow the US in THIS investigation?

      Similar to the one they allowed the FBI in Natalee’s case??

      Oh, wait.

      They actually want the truth to come out with this one – so, likely they’ll let the US take the lead.

      lampe’s probably just p.o.’d because his party wasn’t offered the deal.

    5. joe bear on April 2nd, 2007 1:02 pm

      Did they take it

    6. Richard on April 2nd, 2007 1:53 pm

      What gall! This bozo Rudy Lampe calls himself, or his party, RED if the info in parentheses can be believed.

      For those of us who associate that term with the honorable gentlemen on this forum, that’s an insult. I think said gentleman is entitled to sue for slander and misuse of his “name”; a link with Aruba doubtless is not desired.

      Interesting that the article points out that Lampe was “an active priest before.” Before WHAT? Before he joined the ranks of the corrupt scoundrels who run Aruba?

      Anyway, I hope our government, and the Netherlands, are preparing a very incisive reply on the question of getting involved in this. Anyone want to guess the precondition we should demand?

      By the way … how does it involve the US or Netherlands governments in any way? Sounds to me like the ones who weren’t offered a feeding at the trough are jealous.

      If Arubans are so terribly offended by the loud,
      annoying, pesky Americans & want us
      to stop trashing them for their
      own stupidity…


      Howza-bout we propose a “REVERSE BOYCOTT???” ha!

      They can BOYCOTT US FOR A CHANGE – and keep their BIG BONBINI,
      PORCH LIZARD WATCHING A$$ES at home where they
      LOOOOOOVE it so much in de ALL GREAT AROOOOOOBA!!!

      >> IMPORTANT:

      That means staying out of the USA, and
      not buying anything that comes from those
      “pesky” “annoying” Americans. (products/services)

      The bribe was an accident. It was not an bribe accident only.
      We happy island. We love Aroooba!

    9. Hmmmm on April 3rd, 2007 11:14 am

      Comes down to all palms weren’t sufficiently greased. If the offer had been 2 million, we wouldn’t be hearing jack about it.

    10. vicki on April 3rd, 2007 4:07 pm

      Its amazing how all these dirty little deals are coming to light….this island makes me sick….Sink it, shoot it and drop a bomb on it….who gives a rats behind about it…..

    11. Miss-Underestimated on April 3rd, 2007 4:55 pm

      What do you expect? Money before life…that is there logo.

    12. Carpe Noctem on April 3rd, 2007 5:35 pm

      I do not like Aruba in a car.

      I do not like it, near or far!

      Why don’t we turn all
      Arubans back in the airport

      >>with the rental car.

      Until the Natalee Holloway Case is completely
      solved and those killing Van der Rapists and
      Kal-bones are tracked down & captured… I propose a vote
      that we should greet each one of those Aruban
      macaroons with a knee to the
      nachwurst & pom frits!

      Justice For Natalee

    15. Carpe Noctem on April 3rd, 2007 6:44 pm

      …and another thing, while I’m at it:

      W-H-A-T I-S- U-P with that dreadful
      see through bra that Anita
      likes to wear so much?

      There’s enough material & tension in
      that darn thing to craft a
      old timey trebuchet!

      That turbo BAD BOY jug loader could slingshot
      Dirt-pack Kalpoe’s Honda roughly the length of two
      football fields. That thing is truly friggin’
      ponderous, man! I bet you it makes Paulus Van der sloot
      nervous a lot.

      Anita is the only chic that ever actually scored
      Mardi Gras beads to PUT ‘EM AWAY / PUT ‘EM AWAY!!!
      I’d like to take “WHAT IS “SHANGO SAY: SOME SECRETS
      SHOULD REMAIN HIDDEN” for 200, Alex.” BOYCOTT!!! -j4n

    16. mayan_moons on April 3rd, 2007 8:11 pm

      LOL Carpe!

      When the $hit hits the fan, her bra is where everyone is gonna hide.

    17. Carpe Noctem on April 3rd, 2007 8:37 pm

      OYE PAPITOOOOOO! Aye Carumba, bee-hatch.

    18. Carpe Noctem on April 3rd, 2007 8:48 pm

      On a serious note though:

      The A.L.E. was kind enough to let me
      and my search party search Palm Beach
      this week in Aruba!!!!!

      We found the pair of underwear that
      Anita Van der sloot claims she dropped
      at the beach.

      It was a quite a find! We will push on,
      until we find Natalee, nothing shall stop
      us in the search. We are relentless.

      I see I wasn’t the only one that needed a few days off…. Everyone slowing their roll? That’s a good thing.

      Whats a good thing Roy?

    22. Carpe Noctem on April 3rd, 2007 10:43 pm


      Roy… Dompig called while you
      were out…

      He said come by Saturday to wash his car.

    23. Roy on April 3rd, 2007 11:20 pm

      Slowing their roll? Regathering their thoughts… reflecting on statements, slowing down from a personal standpoint…etc etc….
      Dompig called? Who, me? I doubt it…while I may regret many things I’ve said on this board and others to many people who I may have misunderstood their actions and statements…his is not one of them… I have never waivered in my opinion of him, his family, and his friends who I have always felt caused harm to Natalee and contributed greatly to this cover-up……I’ve seen nothing to change my mind on that….Till that day comes.

    24. Richard on April 4th, 2007 6:43 am

      I believe that this jewelry guy is also supposed to have some kind of ties with Royal Caribbean, the mammoth cruise ship company. So that involves another angle of possible skullduggery.

      Aruban officials selling their country out … who could think it?

    25. Carpe Noctem on April 4th, 2007 12:08 pm

      Justice for Natalee!

      Here’s a great pic that one
      of the Boston 5 took last week?

      Boycott it, baby bubba.

    26. Carpe Noctem on April 4th, 2007 5:06 pm


      See yourself.

    27. freedom on April 4th, 2007 10:30 pm

    28. Carpe Noctem on April 5th, 2007 10:44 am

      27 – Well ooga booga.

      Reopen the Natalie Holloway investigation now! Your police have been paid off by Joran’s father. Joran sold Natalie for $10,000. Joran and his father discuss it on a recorded tape provided by Joran.
