Aruba’s Continued Nightmare Courtesy of Joran Van der Sloot … Joran Prospers with Book While Arubans Struggles


You  will be able to find Joran Van der Sloot’s book, ‘The Case of Natalee JVDS_BookHolloway,’  in the fiction section of your local book store. Nearly two years later and the lies still come.  While Arubans and the Aruban economy has struggled and declined since Natalee’s disappearance, Joran Van der Sloot looks to make money at the expense of a missing and presumed dead American, Alabama teen. With the two year anniversary of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance coming up, Joran Van der Sloot looks to once again make this story front page material for media consumption. Who benefits Aruba and who sufferers?

Joran Van der Sloot continues to spread his less than credible version of events and even shows his sick, disturbed and hate for an individual that he is accused of being responsible for her disappearance. This is the mark of a socio-path, always having to spew hatred toward another.

He admits that he didn’t even know her name and had preferred making love to her friend Ruth, who was much prettier.    

Natalee Holloway disappears, Joran Van der Sloot was the last known person with her, he lied through his teeth during interrogations and now almost two years later he makes a swipe  like this at Natalee and her family. What a disturbed individual. Aruba, you had and have a choice. Joran Van der Sloot is the face of Aruba. No amount of marketing is going to change this, only Justice for Natalee will.  

Aruba, this is what you chose to support. You protest “chollers” but not the people who are most responsible for giving Aruba a black eye. When will you make a stand and say enough is enough?

Amigoe, The answer on what had happened must be somewhere    

ORANJESTAD/AMSTERDAM – In the book ‘The Case of Natalee Holloway’ that was published today in the Netherlands , Joran van der Sloot admits that he has probably committed the biggest mistake of his life by leaving the American girl on the beach by herself.      

He has also lied about that night on the beach to the police and realizes that due to his falsehood, he has lost his credibility.   He knows that he is still the main suspect in the case and understood that the OM in Aruba will soon, maybe next month already decide whether they will proceed to prosecution.   Neither the Dutch- and Aruban police, nor the FBI has found a clue on the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.   There is still an active team of Dutch police on the island.     The book has 351 pages and is written by and for journalist Zvezdana Vukojevic, who works for Nieuwe Revu.   She has spent some time in Aruba with Joran van der Sloot to visit all the locations that are of importance.   Joran van der Sloot told her about his life before he met Natalee, his time in prison and the police interrogations.

Two years ago, well into the night on May 30th, the then 18-year old American Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba after having been on the beach with the then 17-year old Joran van der Sloot.   At first he told the police that he had dropped Natalee off at her hotel, while actually, he had left her behind on the beach.   This lie caused him to spend three months behind bars.      


In the book, he tells about Natalee’s drinking behaviour and gives details about them making love on the beach, which lasted for three hours.   He, together with his friends Deepak and Satish Kalpoe met Natalee and the other American students with whom Natalee was visiting the island, in the Excelsior Casino of the Holiday Inn-hotel.   Natalee wanted to go with the boys.   And even though he had an exam the next day, he had himself and Natalee dropped off at the beach.   “She wanted more, but I had no condoms with me.   She then fell asleep.”   He admits that he didn’t even know her name and had preferred making love to her friend Ruth, who was much prettier.      


Van der Sloot also mentioned possibilities that have not been investigated yet, like a declaration about Natalee’s stepfather and the unknown male DNA found on Natalee’s toothbrush.   He talked straightforwardly about his own behaviour and apologizes to the parents of Natalee for his lying declarations.   Especially during the first days of his detention, he lied about almost everything.   He also admits that he has made mistakes.   He says that he will have to learn to live with the mistake he made by leaving Natalee alone on the beach for the rest of his life.   He has trouble with that.    


At the Publisher’s Luitingh-Sijthoff in Amsterdam yesterday, he told many journalists before the camera that with the book, he wants to give his view on the Holloway-case, because after all the publicity this case has produced, it looks like everybody knows everything but the truth about Joran and Natalee.   Zvezdana Vukojevic wrote the book based on interviews with Joran van der Sloot.   She also used notes in Joran’s diary and she was allowed access to the police files.   In July of last year, Sijthoff received via literary agent Paul Sebes the exclusive Dutch rights for the book.

      I hope the people in Aruba are reading in The Telegraph the negative comments the Dutch have for Joran’s TV appearances. Their response has been described as “hate and anger” and I would like to see the local response to his latest efforts to profit from this tragedy.

      He says he no longer cares about the financial impact on Aruba of his actions.

      How’s that working out for you, Arubans? Was it worth it to cover up for Joran?

    2. Abbey on April 26th, 2007 3:58 pm

      Hmmmm….. the mark of a socio-path is always spewing hatred toward another then most if not all posters here are socio-paths. Explains alot…

      well, since jvds is expecting to move back to aruba and start a business, he’ll have to go on the radio down there and tell them how much he loves them, and how distraught he is over those terrible americans who are messing with them over the little tourist girl’s disappearance. he’ll have to perfect arubaspeak pretty quick. that’s when you talk out of both sides of your mouth at the same time. i’m going to check the next time i see him speak and see if his tongue is forked yet. a forked tongue with those beady hooded eyes, and he’ll have the look down pat.

    4. Cindy on April 26th, 2007 4:15 pm

      “Making love”? He thinks he was making love? If that is any indication of the statements made in this book it is truly fiction. Doesn’t this person realize that he and Aruba would have been better off if he had just disappeared into the woodwork rather than splash his face everywhere? Idiot.

    5. John Staton on April 26th, 2007 4:19 pm

      Next will we see a “if I did it” book ala OJ? Allowing him to profit from this is beyond belief.

    6. Just Me on April 26th, 2007 4:20 pm

      Dutch version of OJ 110%.

    7. elisabeth on April 26th, 2007 4:25 pm

      Today it was announced in Holland that the Dutch detective cold case squad have adviced to keep the investigation open. Aruban authorities have complied and have announced that JVDS remains the prime suspect. There is no deadline.

      Maybe he wants to go back and read his Greta interview.. He doesn’t mention Ruth.. It’s Kathleen he wants to meet up with.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Interested in any of them at – at the poker table?

      VAN DER SLOOT: Interested? No, not really. I was more talking – the girl that was sitting next to me, I was – I thought she was pretty and I was talking to her. And when I went – what the point was for going to Carlos ‘n Charlie’s was I wanted to actually meet up with her.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Do you remember her name?

      VAN DER SLOOT: I don’t – I didn’t remember it, but I remember it now because I heard it afterwards. I think her name was Kathleen.

      He is way too cocky and arrogant to just be happy about getting away with murder. He has nothing else going for him. Also it wouldnt look to good in his book if he talks about “Making Love” to a unconscious Natalee.

      I MEAN, ROOS…



      Thursday, April 26, 2007

      Ed Smith is the person that filmed the Aru-bay Videos that have become part of the Natalee Holloway case.

      Some people believe that these videos are very important and others see no correlation to the case. It is still an unsettled area of the case.

      Ed Smith also used the name Tony Smith when posting on Web-Sites before Natalee Holloway became a CRIME VICTIM ON ARUBA. I located him on a site that rates the musical talent of bands and he would comment as to what he liked about the playing style. He also claims to be part of a group called the Digital Dub Deciphiles.
      So who is he really?

      From the Aru-Bay website: contact US at or call 001 297 5834816 in ARUBA and COME post YOUR PICTURES, MUSIC,and/or VIDEO’S from ANYWHERE in THE World,…

      SO…. to recap the past couple of days
      worth of Joran info to put it all into
      proper perspective.

      Joran Van der Sloot

      admits on Dutch National Television

      that he is an untreated Pathological

      Liar, that lied his way though the Natalee

      Holloway Investigation…. he is currently

      untreated, and his parents support him

      with that decision, and they encourage his

      book deal that gets released BEFORE HE IS



      (an ongoing investigation at this moment)

      Certainly I cannot be the only soul

      in this world that sees this as



      Am I the only one that thinks the Van der sloot

      have gone flipping ‘LOONEY TOONS?’ -j4n

      7. Elisabeth

      Thank you Elisabeth.
      This could be cause for optimism. However … I am skeptical that the Dutch and Arubans have a method in their madness and … their plan is to allow the Natalee Holloway case to die a slow death by remaining open but … not active. The “powers that be” realize that Natalee’s family has legal options open to them one the case is closed. I hope I am wrong.
      Jug Twitty
      On the Record s/ Greta
      GEORGE “JUG” TWITTY: Well, the way the system works down here, when the case is closed, we will have all that information, and we can release it to the world.
      Art Wood
      Dana Petzer Show
      WOOD: The family of Natalee needs to put pressure on the US attorney in Birmingham to push the FBI to conduct an investigation after ALE close the case. We have a treaty that allows the FBI to pursue a violation of civil rights of an American citizen there.
      Art Wood
      ‘Rita Cosby Live & Direct’
      ART WOOD, FORMER SECRET SERVICE AGENT: There’s a lot that Americans can do through the State Department. I want to remind everybody that Natalee Holloway was a U.S. citizen. Once the Aruban authorities are done investigating this case, the FBI can still conduct an investigation, and they could extradite these suspects to the United States. Let me point out that there’s a ton of circumstantial evidence in this case to convict these kids.

      I ‘LURVE’ you all! ;)


      Don’t you think you could devote 5 or 10 minutes
      again to Natalee Holloway and her dear family
      about what this horse’s ass
      Joran Van der sloot
      has just done!!!

      He dropped a book in Holland yesterday 4/25/2007, and

      is currently doing a ‘book tour’ complete with Dutch


      and he has not even been RELEASED

      officially as the CHIEF SUSPECT

      in Natalee Holloway’s murder

      in ARUBA yet.

      Now, if that is not the epitome of ‘ARROGANCE’

      I don’t know what is!

      *To add even more insult to injury, he has
      just admitted to being a pathological liar
      that lied his way through the Holloway investigation.

      Sometimes lying for not even a reason!!!!

      He freely admits all of this in public!

      All of this, and his parents still support
      the fact that he is an untreated pathological

      People, puh-leeze…

      you have to be TISH-ing me.

      I am having a hard time putting

      all of this into PROPER PERSPECTIVE.

      It truly seems like an effing ‘freak show.’


    22. 10061906 on April 26th, 2007 5:23 pm

      Joran; your attitude, your father’s, mother’s and the rest involved in this cover up, indicate that none of you are unaware that humans do not posses Immortality.
      When this game is over we, the pieces, all go back in the same box. The only difference is that you are so tall they will have to break your legs, so you will fit.
      Dennis Jacobs will have to have about 150 pounds of fat removed.
      Tell us; have you told your brothers what you did to Natalee? You are so arrogant I can’t see how you couldn’t brag to them on how you dodged the bullet.
      Are you priming them to be womanizers like you and your father?
      How is the relationship between your mother and father. Does Anita really believe he had no involvement in Natalee’s disappearance, or; does she know but is too afraid of your father to do anything?
      Does your father belong to the same organization that Karle Wever and Nelson Oduber belong to? As do probably half the Justice Ministry.
      What is your father’s relationship with Yolanda Wever. Is she Karle’s wife?
      Who is Quido, Yolanda’s nephew? If so you and your father both know him and his parents.
      I once knew a psychopath like you who finally was so guilt ridden that he blew himself away with a .357. I hope you or your godfather, has one that is powerful enough to get through your thick skull.
      The truth hurts but “Suicide is Painless”.

      Great Timing! Good attempt to lessen the booksales of the Urine-from-the-Ditch-book! And hopefully it brings my compatriots to seeing the truth about this sociopath.

    25. Rob on April 26th, 2007 5:30 pm

      Carpe- LmA0!…you’re too funnnny.

      What about his mama? LOL!!!

    26. Angelone on April 26th, 2007 5:34 pm

      yes it’s true the local and dutch authorities have announced that the case will remain open and will not be closed in 2 weeks like the van der sloot’s wanted it too, and yes a lot of new things on the case will be brought out very soon, the newspaper will publish it one of this day’s.they say the detectives sleep very little,and work long hours.

      but let me comment also on the book: Joran said on Dutch tv jes he wrote the book, and that’s a lie (was to be expected right) an writter for the Revu magazine wrote the book, joran didn’t even put one word on paper or typed one and he says he wrote it for therapy, another lie…

      and finally one day if he is found guilty as hell, have him send to the U.S. to be procecuted there, because if by Dutch laws he must be sentenced he will only get 20 years max for murder, that’s Dutch law for you.

    27. 10061906 on April 26th, 2007 5:36 pm

      Is his book available in English. I would buy it just to examine it for any clues that he may have slipped up on and included. Afterward I would return it from where I purchased it claiming that it was defective.

    28. buckeye on April 26th, 2007 5:42 pm


      Are you in the Netherlands or on Aruba??

      What newspaper is supposed to publish the new things??

    31. Robert on April 26th, 2007 5:46 pm

      Main part of the above article; rest is background-info on the NHcase.

      Rotterdam, 26 april. Justice Dep. on Aruba considders Joran vd Sloot still as mainsuspect in de case from the American Natalee Holloway, now that there have been found new cleus about her dissappearence.

      Eight Dutch investigators from the KLPD (=Corps National Polices-Services) in the meen time have arrived at Aruba. Reopening of the investigation makes it possible to see VdSloot continuesly as suspect in the case. Aruban law says that a person looses his status as suspect as his case is not presented to the court.

      Becaus of the renewed investigation this period can be prolongued, says the Procurements Office on Aruba. Last year the Holloway-file became a socalled “cold case”, a crime not solved, and was transferred to the Dutch KLPD. That presented a rapport last month with conclussions and recommendations that according to the Proc. General on Aruba “justifie” closer investigations. About the contents of the conclusions the Proc. Office doesn’t speak out.

      You’re right, I do get emotional. I think everyone that knows what happened in Aruba and the attempt to hide the truth, gets emotional, from time to time… I’m sorry.


      The fact that there were ten Dutch investigators sent to Aruba and they called in reinforcements and are re-interviewing witnesses, working both day and night, is more than good, it’s great! The things that happened and the cover-up was executed by more than one or two people, it’s bound to come out sooner or later. It is my opinion that the Dutch are just as sick and tired of the corruption and mayhem that has become almost an everyday occurance in Aruba since the induction of Nelson Oduber and the death of Natalee Ann Holloway… as are the rest of us. Sure there were strings pulled, favors called in and bribery; but those strings don’t wrap around the heart of EVERY man in Aruba, nor in the Netherlands.

      No man is ABOVE the law and the decision to hide the death of Natalee Holloway and the refusal to return her to her family is more than a criminal, it is pure evil. Nelson Oduber and his crew of Ministers have been doing all they can to keep a strangle-hold on the people of Aruba to keep thier secrets from coming out. I still maintain my trust and belief in the human spirit that rises above nationalism to a simpler level of human-kindness and compassion. And the latest developments in the case of Natalee Ann Holloway confirms that my hopes and dreams are not in vain.

      There will be justice in Aruba and, until then, we will do everything possible to put pressure on the government of Aruba, as well as their closely held ATA, to assure that any one visiting that island can rest assured that there are LAW-ABIDING officials there to protect them.

      Justice for Natalee

      I am not counting on the Dutch. We have seen this all before. Joran’s book 30 days before the case goes ‘cold’ was done to stitch up the loose ends to the case.

      HERE IS THE MAJOR loose end:

      To my knowledge, there is no timeline established for Paulus Van Der Sloot on the evening of Natalee’s kidnapping, drugging, rape, and murder. We recently saw that the Aruban courts placed Paulus ‘out on the town’ at 4 am where Paulus has stated he was in at 11 for the night. There are five hours here that are screwed up.

      In the meantime, Joran has previously stated that he was only with Natalee Holloway for an hour. Now in the book, he is having a lovemaking session for three hours. So, before it was Joran walked home after an hour and was on his computer at 3:30am….then Satish gave him a ride…or maybe Deepak…..

      Ya see, the courts found as a fact that Paulus was out at 4am in denying him more $$$ for ‘false arrest’ (ha ha).

      It becomes pretty apparent to me….Joran carries Natalee over to Paulus’ home as after a night of sexual abuse and druggings she is not responding. Paulus frantically gets on the computer at 3:30am to figure out what can be done with an overdose of the date rape drug of choice…and also probably looked up attorneys for each of the boys as they would need to hire out virtually all of the attorneys on the island so that every attorney is conflicted to help the Holloways…Paulus and Joran head out to get rid of the body down by the fisherman’s huts (where, of course, Joran would say that is where he left her last). They make their ATM run to payoff some people for assistance…and return to the compound.

      Paulus is your perp. He has no timeline for the night up until that time…and could have very well participated in the rape (or at least done the filming as the old coot probably couldn’t get it up). Paulus seems to be more concerned about being Joran’s buddy, than a father.

      Aruba brazenly did everything to try to distance Paulus from this case. Joran’s book is an attempt to change that timeline to three hours….because under a three hour lovemaking session….Paulus won’t be scrutinized and hopefully people will continue to look the other way.


      Are you going to do it Dutch investigators? Or are you going to continue the charade in Aruba. Dutch credibility is now on the line…..


    46. Maggie on April 26th, 2007 11:01 pm

      According to this site on the documents.. Someone was on Paulus’s name May 30th 20:34(about 9:30pm?) looking up drugs alcohol and the effects on young people and lawyers..

      I believe Paulus knows.. After his statement on Nova where he said Joran was AGAIN home without him knowing it , the night Beth arrived. In Paulus’s police statement, he said Joran told him he was going to the Wyndham that night and he ok’d it… contradicting his Nova statement. That’s why I believe he knew Joran wasn’t home the night Natalee disappeared and Joran didn’t sneak out.

      Jaime claims Joran called him between 4pm and 7pm to ask if if he wanted to go out to Carlos n Charlies to meet some MB girls..however Joran says he made up his mind to go at 9 or 10.. No way do I believe these 3 planned for almost 4 hours or more to go out to meet girls and forgot condoms as an excuse to leave someone on the beach. Hotels weren’t that far away, could more than likely get a condom there, if that were the case. None of those couples have come forward and 3 fisherman on the beach saw them there. No way someone came along and got Natalee and said oh we better go get your shoes and Jorans by the Marriott.. TUTTI FRUITI!

      I too am appalled at what he said in this interview about the things he said in it..

    47. Carpe Noctem on April 26th, 2007 11:26 pm




      It’s the only way Aruba…

      It’s the only way out…

      You know as well as we do the murdering/raping/serial lying
      Joran Van der sloot did it!


      You’re going to accept
      the word of a self admitted
      pathological liar?

      He speaks for her, because he knows damn well she’ll
      never come back to refute it.

      …and that REALLY MAKES ME









      He did it. He acts like a guilty person who did it!

      He, not once in this entire odyssey, has cooperated like

      and innocent soul would!!!

      An innocent soul WOULD NEVER REFUSE

      police requests to simply speak with him about Natalee’s


      There should be nothing to hide!!!!


      Joran runs from ANY QUESTIONING about it,

      even Peter De Vries who is not

      a cop in Holland or Aruba.

      Peter just had a few questions, and Joran

      runs away like a cornered rat!!!!


      He claims the Aruban

      Police put him through

      “too much.” ROFLMAO

      His father sends him on a fake journey,

      to get a college diploma in Arnhem.

      Which he will probably drop out and go home

      before he reaches that goal.

      (my best prediction)


      You know it, we know it Aruba!


      Now, just do something about it!

      THE END

      GAME OVER,

      MAN. -j4n

      Maggie you are on the ball!! Must admit it was good timing Joran making a ass out of himself while the KLPD is in Aruba.

      Joran Van der Sloot – Greta Interview
      March 1, 2005
      VAN DER SLOOT: Interested? No, not really. I was more talking – the girl that was sitting next to me, I was – I thought she was pretty and I was talking to her. And when I went – what the point was for going to Carlos ‘n Charlie’s was I wanted to actually meet up with her.
      VAN DER SLOOT: And I remember afterwards going into – right behind that casino is a little bar, and I remember watching – walking in there. And there was a baseball game on TV, and again, the group of girls was sitting there. And they said, Oh, yes, don’t forget to come out tonight. And I told them that on Sunday, it wasn’t a good night to go out. It wasn’t fun. It wasn’t – and – but they said, You know, if you want to come, come. And I ended up deciding that, yes, I might as well go and have fun.

      Witness Statement – June 17, 2005
      On May 29th 2005, between the hours of 16.00 and 19.00 (4:00 pm – 7:00 pm), I was called by Joran on my mobile phone with the phone number. Joran had asked me whether I wanted to go out with him that night. He told me that a few American girls would go to “Carlos & Charlies” and whether I wanted to meet up with him there.

    50. Patti on April 26th, 2007 11:48 pm

      Exactly… but that doesn’t mean that Natalee died of an overdose. Maybe he was looking at the effects of drugs and alcohol to make it look like she was suffering from the effects of a self-induced drug reaction. We all know who was in charge of his son’s defense. Everything that was said about the car ride back to her hotel, which we know didn’t happen, was nothing more than an attempt to make the victim look guilty of causing her own disappearance through her drinking, drugging and sexual promiscuity.

      After all the lies were revealed about the hotel drop-off, Joran is still keeping that image of Natalee alive. Basically, saying that he left a drugged drunk, who was hot-to-trot and begged him to stay with her, on the beach. Leaving those who are stupid enough to believe his lies that if someone else came along, she would have seeked out his attention, too. All of those lies are nothing more than a character assassination of an innocent girl that doesn’t do drugs and would have fought off any sexual advance.


      Minnesota Dad:

      I have tried and tried to believe the scenerio of Natalee dying of an overdose at the house of the Van der Sloots and I have a real hard time doing that. If she died there, or was killed there; what is all that blood doing on the rocks?

    52. Patti on April 27th, 2007 12:24 am


      First Joran says that he didn’t have sex with that girl, because he didn’t have ANY condoms. Now, he says, they had sex for three hours until he ran out of condoms.

      I wonder if he’s worried that someone found a condom? I do recall someone saying that they witnessed the rape and murder of a girl on the beach that night. The person claims he has a used condom to proove it… Joran does nothing more than lie in his attempt to keep ahead of the truth. In his own words:

      “You know well that you did bad,

      otherwise, you wouldn’t lie”.

    53. Carpe Noctem on April 27th, 2007 12:31 am

      Hey didn’t we hear of Paulus’s plans of writing a book weeks ago and now Anita’s writing one too?

      I wonder if Anita will disclose that like her delicious sporter, she doesn’t care how much the boycott hurts the island.

    59. buster on April 27th, 2007 2:06 am

      Well what ever happened to Natalee it sure made paulass sweat like the devil himself, Think way back………………….
      have you ever done something and then get caught ??? The split second you realize “yer busted” Your sweat glands explode
      paulass probly never realized he ould be confronted on tv by Natalee’s mom and gretta.

    60. Sparks on April 27th, 2007 4:04 am

      I pray for Natalee and her family their is some good evidence the Dutch have to go after Joran. I can not believe the Van Der Sloot family would want to profit from Natalee’s disappearance.

    61. Richard on April 27th, 2007 6:35 am

      Question: Given that we hear so much about the independence of Aruba and its legal system from the Netherlands, is it possible (if only theoretically) that Aruba can refuse to obey the Dutch recommendation that the case be kept open?

      This is something I’ve always wondered. Does Aruba have to obey the Dutch? What if the attorney general, or whoever, says “Sorry, but we don’t have any new info. It’s being closed.” What then?

      It’s hard to imagine that this arrogant book comes out just as the Dutch investigative team is in Aruba. One wonders if the timing is coincidental. Maybe the Dutch have decided that something needs to be done? We’ll see.

      Another thought on my mind: Joran seems to have said that he doesn’t think Natalee is on Aruba, dead or alive. I know it’s not the prevailing view … I’m just wondering if this is his way of giving the (metaphorical) knife an extra twist. In other words, he’s saying “Yeah, I know she was taken off the island alive. Go do something about it.”

      Just wondering … he seems to be psychopathic enough.

      The Miami Herald travel show is this weekend, and the Aruba Tourism Authority has a booth. (Apparently it’s a smaller one than they had in Boston.)

      We will not abandon our efforts to dissuade people from going to Aruba. No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.

      If you can be there, stand up for Natalee in Miami!

    62. jay on April 27th, 2007 7:31 am

      Translation of comments on
      1) Joran did not write one epage in this book and he says in the other interview that the sole reason he wrote the book is as therapy…and no other reason…interesting!!!

      2) it’s thanks to Joran van der sloot that my lovely island of aruba is in bad lighting, specially tourism got hit hard. He calls himself a liar and he’s still lying. Shameful, unbelieveble to say something like that. he has to say the truth NOW and NOW!! Bye and thanks

      3)He told his story to the writer and the writer wrote it down, that’s why he/she is a writer right!!! Joran I would defenitly buy your book.

      4)Well well, dirty up Aruba’s name and profit from it too. His parents never educated this great joran about right and wrong. That’s why nowadays kids grow up without parents they have to be send to prison for raising kids like pigs.

      5)Here a link to the interview with Joran on dutch TV

      6)Joran when will you repent and say the truth that it was you and the Kalpoe brothers that got rid of Natalee Holloway

      7) Joran says on dutch tv that when asked of he’s worried about what’s happening on aruba he just answered “no” because he thinks the boycott is nonsense..because he is the one that wasn’t given a chance..he is the one who ran away to hide in the netherlands..but it’s oke you didn’t get you punishment in live you will get it in dead..god people can’t lie to.

      8)thank god he decided to stay in the nethelands because i think he forms a real danger for our little island!!!…he, together with everyone who helped him cover up the truth!!!! Joran is a true genius to be able to lie and plan things!!! I observed the interview…it’s more than clear that he says he doesn’t need a psycologist because he is more intellegent he doesn’t need proffesional help because they might get the truth out of him!!Bah(red. sing of disgust)…what a true con artist but, “the truth always reaches you in the end no matter how much time had passed!!! We all really FELT through bone and marrow what his lies cost aruba as a whole!!!!! he is in the limelight again he seems to like negative publicity!!!

    63. Rammstein on April 27th, 2007 8:26 am

      and finally one day if he is found guilty as hell, have him send to the U.S. to be procecuted there, because if by Dutch laws he must be sentenced he will only get 20 years max for murder, that’s Dutch law for you.

      Comment by Angelone | April 26, 2007, 5:34 pm


      the maximum for murder under dutch law is natural life although it is unlikely that Joran would even be sentenced to considerably less than 20 years (not my opinion of what he should get but it is an on average statistical fact that for murder one usually gets around 12 years (maybe even 14).

    64. Waterboy (Jerry) on April 27th, 2007 8:32 am

      Joran was recently found buried in sand up to his chin. Seems he had been there for days on the beach in Aruba, and no one saw him. The tourism department said thousands of people must have just walked right by him.

      Mayan, apples don’t fall far from the tree, Joran a self proclaimed liar…….Anita saying her house was searched?

      Why would Aruba harbour and protect ppl who flee from the island and don’t care about the boycott?

      Wise up ppl of Aruba they sent your island to the dogs or pigs, whichever you like.

      BTW Hey Aruba or Dutch LE, Jorans editor had access to police records, check your laws, some may have been broken AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

    68. minnesota dad on April 27th, 2007 11:05 am

      Rumors buzzing about activity at the Van Der Sloot’s residence this morning…..

      Must be catching Judge Smid and Anita screwing around with each other while Paulus films.

      Should make for an interesting day if, in fact, the rumors are true. Perhaps the monkey next door has provided a statement about what he saw on May 30th.

      By the way Aruba….and Dutch Investigators….here are a couple little hints while you are seperating Smid and Anita:

      1) Search the whole property
      2) Especially search Paulus and Anita’s residence
      3) Especially search the room with a new mattress that was purchased in the summer of 2005.
      4) Search underneath the ground in the area around the bushes where Paulus was hiding from Beth and Greta (murder weapon buried there).
      5) Don’t forget to tear up the new cement that was laid down in the backyard.
      6) Slap cuffs on Paulus…Smid…and Anita for their various crimes committed including those committed under the ‘color of law’.
      7) Bring them down to the pokey and breakout the waterboards (or send them to camp gitmo and we can help).
      8) Drive over and pick up the Kalpoes next. Though it is clear that they are minorities and will be the ultimate fall guys before anyone Dutch will fall….they may provide some interesting statements.
      9) Drive over to Steve Croes home and arrest him for being a false witness.
      10) Shut down the Excelsior Casino for 90 days…or until everyone talks. Serving minors, giving minors large credit lines, and allowing minors to gamble is bad….even in a Dutch province.
      11) If Smid is not in bed with Anita, have him handcuffed in Curacao and flown into Aruba to defend his rulings.
      12) Have the new AG retract the letter stating Paulus was no longer a perp.
      13) Produce all of the physical evidence that was sent to that ‘black hole’ in Holland.
      14) Arrest Boeti for false statements
      15) Arrest Michael Dompig for false statements
      16) Arrest Koen Gottenboes – if he is still on the island – and either have him give a statement or go to jail for a couple of years.
      17) Arrest Jan Van Der Stratten

      Anyone want to add some instructions for the Dutch now that they are sniffing around Paulus and Anita’s home???


    69. 10061906 on April 27th, 2007 11:38 am

      This probably one of many excuses our State Department does not want to get involved.

      Aruba serves as one of two forward operating locations (FOLs) in the Caribbean for U.S. counterdrug aircraft. The FOL, located at Queen Beatrix Airport near Oranjestad, provides a landing and servicing area for counterdrug detection and monitoring missions in the region.

      I must say, the photo of the dear little sporter on the cover of that book is so appropriate … looks like a prison cut and a prison mugshot.

      Another instruction for the Dutch: remember the case of Amy Lynn Bradley, kidnapped from a cruise ship that was docked off Curacao in March 1998. Last reported seen in the Caribbean.

    73. Richard on April 27th, 2007 11:50 am

      10061906 (#69) … That, alas, is part of the problem. Where better to have a drug empire than under the noses of the foreigners who rely on you for support and information?

      Aruba, by virtue of its work with our DEA, is well placed to make sure that no drug shipments get through … except their own. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but you get my meaning.

    74. Miss-Underestimated on April 27th, 2007 11:54 am

      Md, how about Charles Croes?

    75. minnesota dad on April 27th, 2007 11:55 am

      Sounds like the PERP….Paulus has been taken into custody.

      Would be fascinating to know how for 22 months we have been told Dutch Law does not allow a search, and that the KLPD can’t touch the sloot property because he was released as a suspect….but hey, rumors are the KLPD is there setting up tents.

      I can see it now in the interrogation room….”Paulus, we know you are the perp and have all the statements and evidence to back this up… either fess up that you did it and do not implicate anyone and we give you 10 years (15 with early release for good behavior), or, you can ‘hurt a lot’ of people and serve the rest of your life.” What’s it gonna be Paulus???

      It has been way to clear that the justice department and Aruban law enforcement has covered for Paulus and his crimes. The day of reckoning may be coming.

      Caution Monkeys – this could also be a ruse by the KLPD to say they looked under every stone and didn’t find anything. Allows them to close the case saying they went through all of the motions…gives them credibility. Until these predators are put behind bars, I would not count on anything. I do find it odd this flourish in the final thirty plus days — Joran’s book release with new timelines, KLPD coming to the island — and contrary to ‘Dutch Law’, marching unannounced onto the Sloot property and taking Paulus into custody. Will Paulus sue again when they try to sell us that they didn’t find anything on the property???


    76. Miss-Underestimated on April 27th, 2007 12:01 pm

      Paulus was taken into custody, today?


      SM:   At least for questioning if nothing else.   The home is being searched and we are hearing that Joran is expected to be detained also ;)   (klaasend)

      Talk about timing. Always knew the tall sporter couldnt keep his pie hole shut.

      Open Open Open. Being on this side of the glass bites.

    81. 10061906 on April 27th, 2007 12:47 pm

      I hope they (the Dutch Investigators)got all the right paperwork and got their ducks in a row.
      At this late stage of the investigation we do not need someone crying foul and having evidence and suspects disallowed because of some procedural screw up…..

    82. Richard on April 27th, 2007 12:50 pm

      We have to keep in mind, also, that this could be another false lead that will not produce anything. Doesn’t seem possible to me that this is being pulled out of thin air, but we’ve been down that road before ….

      What about the Kalpoes?

      Hard (for me, at least) to imagine that after all this time, a body would be left interred on their property. Of course, they might not be looking for a body but for fingerprints or other evidence.

      All that we can do is hope … and continue to boycott.

    83. Richard on April 27th, 2007 12:52 pm

      As I said before, it’s hard to imagine that the Dutch team just happens to be on Aruba even as the sporter’s book is released in the Netherlands. Could be that the timing was calculated to capitalize on the book; i.e., it provides even more evidence of what the vdS clan really is.

    84. Miss-Underestimated on April 27th, 2007 12:53 pm

      I am assuming that if they have tents set up at the VDS residence they have cause to believe they are gonna be there awhile and ususally tents means shifting thru forensic evidence? Does anyone know anything else?

      Extremes though for a pony show?

    85. 10061906 on April 27th, 2007 12:57 pm

      Realistically what would they hope to find by searching the Van der Sloot house two years after committing the crime? Maybe Video tapes of the odd couple.
      A search of the well and more recent cement work around the pool would seem more logical.
      A luminal spray and search of Joran’s apartment is even a better idea.

    86. Mike on April 27th, 2007 1:01 pm

      hear that some officials and Ministers are being questioned
      as well. Ofcourse, that may have already been done… the
      new witness may very well be one of them. It reminds me of
      an analogy that was made at the very beginning about the
      house of cards… has someone, finally, flipped the card
      that results in them all falling? I think so.

      Is this for REAL? Who is telling us this???

    92. Miss-Underestimated on April 27th, 2007 1:23 pm

      Wow, Anita, maybe they will find that missing camera…wink, wink.

    93. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 1:33 pm

      Is there a news crew out there filming and reporting on this search? WHO’s telling us this?

    94. kermit on April 27th, 2007 1:34 pm

      Paulus and Joran and many others, some names we have not heard are going to be arrested. Kermit predicts.

      It is happening and I am so happy.

    95. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 1:34 pm

      lol Richard…you’re right…..Jipshit looks buzzed and ready for prison!

    96. Miss-Underestimated on April 27th, 2007 1:40 pm

      Okay Kermit what’s next?

    97. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 1:40 pm

      No word on the Kalpuke’s?

    98. Patti on April 27th, 2007 1:41 pm


      It must of been one of those officials with a conscience…

    101. Kat_Gram on April 27th, 2007 1:44 pm

      MF ( a person from Aruba ) says P is in CUSTODY …
      All Monkeys read the forum.
      I am now kinda sick. Laugh, cry.
      Maybe I will just PRAY for a resolution for the Holloway and Twitty families.


      SM:   MF corrected himself later and said not actually in custody but being questioned/interrogated (klaasend)

    102. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 1:45 pm

      Is there a way to see all these tents and such on Google Earth?

    103. Janet on April 27th, 2007 1:49 pm

      89. Patti

      Art Wood predicted …
      ‘Rita Cosby Live & Direct’ – Dec.1/05
      WOOD: …… But that’s why this case could be solved, Rita. The reason this case could still be solved is because there are so many people involved in Natalee’s disappearance and in the disposal of her body. When somebody talks, they’re going to all go down. This is like a house of cards.

    105. Miss-Underestimated on April 27th, 2007 1:54 pm

      I am wondering if someone talked….I don’t know why, but I think someone rolled on em. Could Karin have gone to the NL with more info than she led on? Were the Kalpoes hoping to come to the US for some sort of asylum?

    106. NM on April 27th, 2007 1:54 pm

      Just me #100,
      who is laughing?

      I wonder if Jossy has any info?

    109. Patti on April 27th, 2007 2:09 pm

      Janet #103:

      Thank you….

      I have a good memory, to a point.
      I’m glad you have your library!


      Miss U #105:

      I predicted a few months back, that there would be one that
      would roll – one with a conscience. In fact, I asked that
      Scared Monkeys not lean on him too heavy as I was afraid
      that his heart would become hardened if he was put under too
      much scutiny. It’s not Karin that I’m talking about. Do
      you remember who the investigators went to see before going
      to Aruba?


      Mums the word. We still don’t know for sure that my
      prediction has come true. It may come later.


      Let there be JUSTICE IN ARUBA!!!

    110. NM on April 27th, 2007 2:09 pm

      thanks Jay!

      Just in case Beth and Dave peek in here.


    113. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 2:24 pm

      Anna in the forum said “anyone who pours concrete while being suspects in a drug/rape/murder inveatigation is crazy or arrogant”

      I couldn’t agree more Anna!

      Once i heard thats what they’d done i knew in my gut that Natalee would be found on the Sloot property. To nervous to put her anywhere else…..wondering all the time if someone would stumble apon her or (starving dogs) dug her up. People like these scummy Sloots felt everything is ok as long as they can control the area Natalee lies in.

    114. Miss-Underestimated on April 27th, 2007 2:28 pm

      Mayan, I’d like to add that if the ALE allowed them to do that (I imagine you have to get permits to do that) they are nuts too.

    115. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 2:30 pm

      Their arrogance is also why they have keepsake’s if you will of what they did that night. Pics and or video of them with Natalee, her drivers liscense, her panty.

    116. Carpe Noctem on April 27th, 2007 2:36 pm

      Well, it is nice to know that
      Joran is keeping himself updated
      on the happenings of the day!!!

    117. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 2:36 pm

      Certifiable Nuts Miss U!~

    118. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 2:38 pm

      Whats Jossy saying about this? And how does someone from one of the hate sites know Paulus is just being interrogated and not in custody? hmmm

    119. Carpe Noctem on April 27th, 2007 2:45 pm


      I ask very little of you…

      but if you can do just one thing for me this year…

      …bring Natalee home to her family…

      …even if it is only in the form

      of THE TRUTH of what Joran did to her.





      Whatever you need to do to work that out,

      then that is what needs to be done, I guess. -j4n

    120. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 2:56 pm

      I’m praying too Carpe…..i know we all are.

    121. Mortella on April 27th, 2007 2:56 pm

      I want them to know we are watching their every move and won’t be mum about it! They are less likely to pull a hush up if they know they are under heavy scrutiny.

      If someone rolled it is because of anger and I doubt conscious attack, JMO.

      But maybe KJ is angry enough about not getting a renewal to go to The Netherlands and talk. Tell who refused to do their job, etc. Maybe those perps can get a little trouble, too.

      Jackhammers! Anita’s lie about them digging up the flower beds is about to come true. That’s Karma, Anita, lol!

    124. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 3:01 pm

      Let Natalee be found and brought home.

    125. justice4nat on April 27th, 2007 3:01 pm

      #119 – I agree 100%. Couldn’t have said it better myself!

      Still hoping that this is not another dog and pony show from Aruba and praying that Dave and Beth get some real answers in the next day or so.

    126. Miss-Underestimated on April 27th, 2007 3:02 pm

      Oh Carpe, I agree. That’s beautiful.

    127. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 3:03 pm

      Did i read the brother’s talked??

    128. jay on April 27th, 2007 3:05 pm

      A portable toilet was brought to the scene, so they are planning to stay there a while.

    129. Maggie on April 27th, 2007 3:08 pm

      Janet, when I read this on Greta’s interview I took it to mean he left the casino around 9 or 10 and stopped by the little bar and talked to Natalee and her friends and then decided he was going to go to CnC..Jaime said he called him between 4 and 7pm to ask him to go to CnC to meet some MB girls, but he told Joran he might have to work and said later Joran called him again, but the machine picked it up and he never spoke to him again that night.

      VAN SUSTEREN: So did they all leave together, sort of like a herd of girls, do you remember?

      VAN DER SLOOT: Yes, I think they left in a group. They all stayed together.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Did they…

      VAN DER SLOOT: And I remember afterwards going into – right behind that casino is a little bar, and I remember watching – walking in there. And there was a baseball game on TV, and again, the group of girls was sitting there. And they said, Oh, yes, don’t forget to come out tonight. And I told them that on Sunday, it wasn’t a good night to go out. It wasn’t fun. It wasn’t – and – but they said, You know, if you want to come, come. And I ended up deciding that, yes, I might as well go and have fun.

      VAN SUSTEREN: About what time did you walk out of the Holiday Inn casino for the evening?

      VAN DER SLOOT: I don’t remember exactly what time it was.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Can you give me an estimate?

      VAN DER SLOOT: It was probably 10:00, I think – 9:00, 10:00.

      VAN SUSTEREN: And they were already gone at that point, do you remember?

      VAN DER SLOOT: Yes, they were sitting in a bar behind the casino.

      VAN SUSTEREN: And where did you go when you left the casino?

      VAN DER SLOOT: And I called another friend of mine and asked him if he wanted to go out, and he said he had to work the next day, so he couldn’t go out

    130. WorldJOURNIER on April 27th, 2007 3:19 pm

      ….the Laws Enforcement need evidence presented to the judge to obtain property search warrant….

      ….the judge granted the property search warrant…

      ….Laws Enforcement brought jack hammer(s) ((& port-a-potty, presumably for hours/days-long stay))

      .: therefore, there must be some kind of evidence for Laws Enforcement to think they needed jackhammer(s)

    133. Maggie on April 27th, 2007 3:27 pm

      ty Patti, been real busy offline. but I never waiver in my beliefs of who is responsible for what happened to Natalee.
      Joran wants everyone to believe he’s just a little kid making minor mistakes lying. He is cold and calculated and knows exactly what he’s doing in my opinion. We’ve all seen movies about people like this..

      When the cops came to talk to Scott the day of Laci disappeared or the day after the entire house was immaculate and he was not even a suspect, but cops found a phone book on the counter turned to Attorneys. Does that sound familiar in Aruba?

      I’ve always believed Natalee was drugged, the reason to take her to another bar in the place at closing time. A reason to take her out at closing time to, lots of confusion going on out front with a mass of people. Joran had a VIP card to the bar so I’m sure he has friends who work there.

      I dont believe he ever had any intention of take her back to her hotel or going near her hotel where all her friends were at.

      2 years is a long time to wait to search the VDS, but it’s better than never. It should’ve been done right at the start instead of searching the security guards homes at daylight.4 days or so after Natalee disappeared. Should’ve taken the cars too instead of giving them time to clean them up like the Kalpoes cleaning their car repeatedly for the 2 or 3 different reasons they gave why. Bleach works wonders cleaning stuff up. I also believe he’s a walking time bomb for anyone who gets in his way and don’t let him have what he wants. Let’s all hope they get them this time. The answers are with all of them. I can’t imagine my son sitting around bragging he’s a pathological liar and lies everyday and people want him to see a psychiatrist but he’s not going to , he don’t want to. All we hear from him and his family is poor us we are the victims. The only people they are victims of is themselves and a son they never took time to correct or teach right from wrong. He grew up to be just like dad. The only person Joran is in love with is himself imo.

      Natalee was every parents dream of a daughter and Joran is ever parents nightmare of a date for their daughter.

      And where’s nychic?

    147. 10061906 on April 27th, 2007 4:03 pm

      IMO someone who knows what happened must have talked. There would be no reason for the KLPD to question Paulus or search his property after almost two years.
      I don’t believe the denial of a full search of the Van der Sloot residence from the begining would have piqued their interest. Someone talked. Someone who has been flying under the radar that was not involved but knows. My best guess is the guy who wears the Rosary beads.
      Carpe: I hope so also. It has been a long haul for the Holloway and Twitty families.
      God willing we may have the answers soon.

    148. Patti on April 27th, 2007 4:03 pm

      Maggie #133:

      As always, I love your post. I’ve missed you but I understand that we all get busy. There has never been a doubt in my mind that you were with the family in their quest for justice.

      We’ve all put so much into this. We’ve all prayed for justice and believed that we were doing the right thing as each and every one of us gave of ourselves, in every way that we could. It won’t be long before we know the truth and I don’t mind being wrong, in my perception of things, as long as it means there is justice.

      Seeing you here, puts a smile on my face… This is what we have all been working for.

    149. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 4:07 pm

      1906, I agree, like World J said they’d have to have a search warrant based on evidence, I might add some hard evidence for them to bring in the jack hammers and the johns, looks like they may be there awhile. I wonder if Steve Croes was called for some digging,,, I wonder does anyone in his family own a lanscaping firm?

      Let’s not ever forget Natalee and the injustice in Aruba. Sadly the anniversary is approaching. Two years and we know no more now than we knew in 2005. Sadly, nobody has been held accountable for her disappearance. Joran goes on with his life, Natalee’s family still wondering what happened to her and want justice as do I!!!
      I have boycotted Aruba for 2 years and will continue to boycott and hit them where it hurts.

    155. Patti on April 27th, 2007 4:21 pm

      Thanks, 10061906…

      Carpe, when all this is over and the whole Sloot and Kalpoe bunch are behind bars, I would very much like to meet and shake your hand. You have continued to keep all of us informed while giving us soooooo much to smile about during the past 2 years. I touched on this before, but I’ll say it again. Perhaps we all can meet one day and have a huge gettogether celebrating the final downfall of the perps. Vegas sounds so good. In the meantime I will stay glued to see if any more substaniated news is coming out of devil’s island. I pray that there is some truth to it this time.:-)

    161. Just Me on April 27th, 2007 4:50 pm

      NM… at the time somebody asked about the Kalpoes..

      Whats up with this sum of stuff? lol

      I will change my name.

    162. Patti on April 27th, 2007 4:51 pm

      Here’s a post at the Forum by Spock:

      The prosecutor had to present the Judge with new evidence
      that gave the police probable cause that NH or some
      physical item related to her disapearance was at the Sloot
      residence. There is no other way to obtain a search warrant.
      We need to see the document presented to the Judge that
      authorized the search and seizure.

      I’m inclined to agree with him. It’s also been reported
      that the searchers have ripped out a tree in order to
      search under it.

      Where are all our Aruban posters?

      Please, if you’re here, let us know what is being reported
      via radio and T.V. broadcasts. Have there been any arrests?

    163. NM on April 27th, 2007 5:01 pm

      Just Me,
      No don’t change your name! Then if someone new comes along and happens to use Just Me we will have to go all throught it again!!!!! thanks for the answer!

      3+1=5 lol watch me lose this post for being a smart a$$.

    164. Crioyo on April 27th, 2007 5:09 pm

      aruban poster here..
      11:00pm i just got off the phone with aruba and heard that paulus was possibly in custody and that the dutch have literally set up camp..

      so now i’m going to read your posts and find out what’s going on. cheers!

    165. Maggie on April 27th, 2007 5:13 pm

      I read on this site, Greta will be covering the search tonight on her show..?

      Patti I appreciate everyone who shows up to support Justice for Natalee. It’s long overdue.. Mayan, I too have wondered where NYCHIC was and Grams.

    166. Just Me on April 27th, 2007 5:13 pm

      Sooo Just me it is! Cause after all it is.. Just Me. Lol.
      I want Greta to eat her words sooo bad. I hope this isnt a bunch of hype.

      Hot off the Press:

      Update on Aruba-Zone
      Breaking News: Search of Van Der Sloot Home!
      Friday, 27 April 2007

      After nearly 2 years of the dissapearance of Natalee Holloway, today in a breaking news we have information that members of the Aruba’s police department and KLKP from the Netherlands are searching the house of prime suspect Joran Van Der Sloot in the district of Noord. A search effort was already made in the first weeks of this case nearly two years ago, however as many have said an entire search of the property was never done. Today, accompanied by the Arubian authorities the members of KLKP are doing a search of the home of Paul Van Der Sloot (father of Joran Van Der Sloot). We from will be keeping you posted on any info that we might receive.

      Information indicates that Paul Van Der Sloot has not been arrested, but is being held for questioning by authorities.

      New information indicates that the KLPD is searching the garden of the Van Der Sloot residence, they have even moved a whole “kukwisa” tree from it’s place. That is the work going on outside. From what is going on within the home there’s not much information, everything indicates that the authorities are there to stay for a while. Keep posted, as we get more information we will post them on our website.

      Thanks, Klaas!!!

      Hey! Crioyo:

      We’re celebrating!!!

    168. 10061906 on April 27th, 2007 5:18 pm

      Thanks Patti but I think we have all made a promise to Natalee or else we would not be here. I felt like quiting many times but a promise made is a promise kept.
      And yet; after all this time it is almost anti climatic that we may get answers.
      Vegas would sound like a great place to meet.

    169. Patti on April 27th, 2007 5:25 pm


      Have there been any reports in
      the Netherlands about Joran
      being detained?

      Cheers to you, too!!!



      I haven’t seen NYChic, either… I’m sure once
      she gets the news, she’ll be here. She wouldn’t
      want to miss this for the world!

    170. Carpe Noctem on April 27th, 2007 5:30 pm

      160 – Chris, I’d be honored to shake your hand! A
      get together at the successful conclusion to
      this saga, WOULD BE WONDERFUL! I hope that

      Thank You Maggie!

    173. mayan_moons on April 27th, 2007 5:36 pm

      Yeah Grams too! Haven’t seen her posts for awhile but her post’s are long lasting! (get your trash bags boys!) lol

    174. Crioyo on April 27th, 2007 6:04 pm

      As far as dutch news reports go, I can’t seem to find anything on NOS’s site, neither GEENSTIJL, ANP, RTL or SBS seem to have picked up on the story for their websites. But it’s already late here. We’re 6 hours ahead of Aruban time, so I think maybe tomorrow there’ll be more news out.

      Found an NRC article but it’s from april 26th 2007.

      I’m tired and sleepy so this rough translation will hopefully be readable and probably old news to you all.

      Basically says 8 detectives have arrived on the island and that joran is still prime suspect. Reopening if the makes it possible to keep considering JDVS as a suspect since according to Aruban law a person loses the status of suspect after a period of 2 years have passed since the start of the investigation without it being presented in court.

      Because of the new investigation, that period can be prolonged. Last year the Holloway-dossier was transfered to the KLPD as a ”Cold Case”. Last month the KLPD brought out a report with conclusions and recommendations which according to the PG in Aruba ”justify further investigation”. The OM doesn’t want to comment on the content of the report.

      *Reopening the case makes it possible

      Thanks for the translations. Are you on the island??

      63 Angelo
      Thanks also. Papiamentu is a difficult language. Especially for someone that took french and not spanish, lol.

      164 Crioyo
      Any news from the motherland??

    177. buckeye on April 27th, 2007 6:14 pm

      Jay, angelo and others:
      Just want to be sure you know you can read the inside thread at . You can also see copies of PVs etc. You won’t be able to post without registering but you can read (and see the pictures).
      Thanks Crioyo…get some sleep.

    178. Patti on April 27th, 2007 6:17 pm

      Thanks, Crioyo!

      Get some rest and maybe you’ll hear something
      about Joran in the morning…

      As always, I appreciate your help.

      Say your prayers (smile)


    179. Patti on April 27th, 2007 6:35 pm

      Where is our ANGEL?


      Please come in….


      SM:   I could be wrong but I believe she’s also in the NL.   If she’s smart, she’s sleeping ;)   (klaasend)

    180. jay on April 27th, 2007 6:47 pm

      hey buckeye,
      I’m in the netherlands…
      there is no news here. I guess i’ll have to wait till tomorrow

    181. Just Me on April 27th, 2007 6:47 pm

      Oh for where art thou Julia?

      Come out where ever you are….
      Not very attractive when you can drink all the men under the table.. ya know?

    182. Richard on April 27th, 2007 6:54 pm

      Whatever happens with this search, the Miami Herald travel show protest is still being held this weekend. No relenting on Aruba until we get evidence, trials, confessions, convictions and sentences.

      The jackhammers are there, but I wonder if they will be used or if that’s contingent on the dogs coming up with something. The Dutch are citing new evidence, and there must be something that justified them getting the search warrant. But is it a false lead, a phony tip, or just an attempt to dot all the ‘i’s and cross all the ‘t’s?

      No way to know right now. But what a letdown, a total letdown, it will be if they don’t come up with something.

    184. Frank on April 27th, 2007 7:02 pm

      I have posted rarely but read here daily and have from the begging. I’m thinking Jurine and Poppasweatyslop must be puckered up so tightly right now what with all the digging going on around their house you couldn’t drive a toothpick up their……with a sledge hammer. I sure hope so anyway.

      Justice for Natalee

    185. jDoe on April 27th, 2007 7:21 pm

      On FNC now – Shep Smith: :Breaking news from Aruba, up next after commercial.

    186. jDoe on April 27th, 2007 7:30 pm

      Shep sez “They are digging up the VDS yard”.

      Sorry, missed the rest.

    187. vc-birmingham on April 27th, 2007 7:40 pm

      I just heard in a local news tease that Aruban Investigators have gone to the VDS home with jackhammers, dogs and tents. Does anyone have more info???

    188. pablo on April 27th, 2007 7:57 pm

      What someone needs to do is buy the book and photo copy the whole book and put it on my space and everywhere people can get it for free. Than everyone can see his mistakes and he gets “0″ -

    189. miss-underestimated on April 27th, 2007 8:04 pm

      Well if they find Natalee or any evidence in the sloot residence yard, no question that Paulus and Anita were heavily involved in the cover up maybe more. I keep thinking how in a polis statement they said Joran was biting his tongue till it bled.

    190. jay on April 27th, 2007 8:05 pm

      doing a show about it

    191. Carpe Noctem on April 27th, 2007 8:07 pm

      Hey Frank,

      ix-snay on all the

      “blue talk” about

      the ooth-pick-tay up the ol’ iney-hay!

      It makes Rammstein-Bob

      Squarepants ‘orny.


      Good to see you again!

      >You da man, bro bro.

    192. jay on April 27th, 2007 8:19 pm

      what was said in the show was that there are about 20 forensics searching the van der sloot residence. The father was questioned and there is no comment on what if anything was found.
      the images show ground penetrating radars. Alot of other equipment. the reporter’s question wether or not joran was informed was not answered.

    193. miss-underestimated on April 27th, 2007 8:29 pm


    194. Patti on April 27th, 2007 8:32 pm

      Thanks, Jay!!!

    195. maria on April 27th, 2007 8:40 pm

      Let’s hope justice gets served. And the dutch are who they say are.

    196. Robert on April 27th, 2007 8:42 pm

      Good news, this renewed activity on aruba.

      Here’s a news article from the dutch Telegraaf:,1

      Only news in this article: according to just.dep. this search has nothing to do with the releasing of the book of Vandersloot. This search was planned some time.”

      It’s night here so it’s to late to translate the whole article, sorry.


      SM:   Thanks Robert – I think we already got a translation.   Some people are thinking that this is all for show.   What is your opinion?   Do you think the KLPD would be digging up the Sloot house for show? (klaasend)

    197. Robert on April 27th, 2007 8:54 pm

      My experience with the KLPD-method is that they work quite silently and don’t react much on what is in the media on a case they are working on. I guess they have found some new smaller or bigger facts – don’t know – and they have good reasons to act now. They normaly don’t do things just for the “show”. They’re quite serious…

    198. jDoe on April 27th, 2007 10:01 pm

      Greta is interviewing Jossy now on FNC.

    199. jDoe on April 27th, 2007 10:11 pm

      Jossy said the search is over for the day and there have been no arrests. Also, that the forensic team is not just there on a whim. He seems to think they have a specific reason for being there.

      Taco Joe says the VDS family is “distressed” about the search & this is just a last effort in order to close the case. This is the beginning of the end.

    200. evilive on April 28th, 2007 7:57 am

      Yes jDoe:
      But the begining of the end for WHO?

    201. Future arubian presedent on April 28th, 2007 3:20 pm

      Boycotting aruba does not help..
      we have been informed that are tourism is going up quick..
      twice as many tourist are coming ( are island is safe.. it’s just joran isn’t) ( Hope the tourist who come here will have a wonderfull time.. God bless aruba.. God bless america)
      I am an arubian and i just want to say this:
      ” DONT Talk about something that you don’t now.. cause there’s news that they saw halloway using credit card, after she was missing.. but do you believe it.. NO .. do you go and tell everybody that .. no .. cause you weren’t there at that time to see her.. so if you saw it and the news it is not 100% true..
      and we were not hiding anything for joran.. so next time think before you speak.. Arubians won’t damige are country for a duth boy.. were not Stupid..” if you want to discus or ask me something about aruba or the nathalee case :

    202. Carpe Noctem on April 28th, 2007 8:31 pm

      You can’t even spell PRESIDENT… a-hole!

      Boy, I am glad Klaas let that one through.

      Many Arubans are wonderful people

      and want Justice

      for Natalee too…

      and some are just dumber than an effing Bucuti

      porch lizard!!!!

      Go p-off #201, ya big dug a$$!

    203. Anneke on April 29th, 2007 5:16 pm

      The most cruel joke Joran played was publishing this book in Dutch making his poor US lynchmob wait to make a point misrepresentation supposition etc. On TV, presenting his book he was a bit of a snottnosey normal kid with a history. Actually nobody seems to have picked up on the story any further. I think the book will sell maybe 15000 and that’s it. And yes he’s doing fine in College I hear from a neighbour who has a kid studying there.

    204. misterM on May 9th, 2007 12:12 pm

      TO: Carpe Noctem.
      How is it you know so much about Arubians? Do you know 1 Arubian you imbecile? Americans aren’t dumb people it’s just u make that hard to believe. I think most people making comments on this site are fueled by emotions rather than facts.

      The fact is Joran wouldn’t be punished in the US either.
      Fact is FBI could’t find anything either.
      Fact is all the Arubians who took a day of to search for this girl could’t find anything.
      Fact is all these arubians got a bad name and boycott as a thanks
      Fact is there are more important things to care about like a war in the middle east where more americans are dying each day.
      Fact is there are more american girls missing each day in america but they are no as influential and don’t get any coverage as a result.
      Fact is you are all suddenly expert without credential(idiots for that matter)

      Get a life


      SM:   4000 Aruban’s were given the day off to search, out of 4000 less than 800 searched.   The coverup is obvious to everyone (klaasend)

    205. Carpe Noctem on May 20th, 2007 12:15 pm

      Okay, I will get a life…

      …but only if you promise to give

      that undulating dumptruck load

      it’s a shame… it’s a terrible shame… shame that because of a DUTCH man and two SURINAMESE men caused such a terrible blow to a small island in the caribbean. Now, reading through some of these comments (I’m not gonna waste my time reading them all) I find it… well… awkward that most of you are lashing out at the aruban community, when it is obvious that these 3 gentlemen aren’t even locals! But I digress…

      there are several unanswered questions which still linger to this day, like: what is fact? what is fiction? where’s natalee? Why boycott Aruba? (and if so, why not boycott Korea after the whole Virginia tech incident? or boycott Mexicans for speaking spanish? or maybe Jews for… being jews!)
      Investigations have come up empty! If Aruba is “corrupt” (according to most of you), then what about the dutch and/or american law enforcements that have done a thourough investigation on the island? They’ve come out – dare I say – empty handed! Either this individual DUTCH man is an extremely clever person OR there is more to this case than what the media has portrayed it to be, i.e. a simple girl-gone-missing case where Joran (a dutch immigrant… I can’t emphasize this enough) is the culprit. I linger more on the latter, which seems more likely to me!

      In conclusion (being less witty and scholarly): stop complaining! Learn dutch, read his childish book (unfortunately I have). Put every single fact on the table (not JUST the ones you want, being more suitable to your opinion) and finally: STOP believing every single nonsense the media is feeding you (you’ll end up as paranoic as New yorkers after 9/11).

      Thank you!
      -an ashamed American living in Holland-

    207. Tico Suarez on October 11th, 2009 6:16 pm

      Thank you for kind words “Ashamed American living in Holland towards Aruba and its locals. I am an Aruban and a native born in Aruba would never ever do such a thing. All of the non Aruban born do not have the humble upbringing that was instilled in us. Yes we proudly carry the Dutch passport, and this filt called Joran has brought such shame to his own homeland of Holland along with the two other culprits from Suriname. Aruba was a peaceful island untill people such as this Joran came to live on the island, through his father who got an assignment as a judge. And where is the criticism towards his parents. They are as rotton as he is. Lastly I am a firm believer that crime does not pay. I am sure Arubans pray for the day that I am sure will come that God willing this great tragedy will be solved. Thank you for allowing me to espress myself.
