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 Holloway,’ 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.
