Amigoe: “Highly placed Government Official said … the team expects to find Holloway’s Remains soon in Aruba
As Joe Tacopina and the defence teams spin for Joran Van der Sloot, one of the three prime suspects in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, others are stating something quite differently. We think Joe Tacopina dost protest too much. For anyone to believe that a through search of the Van der Sloot home and a greater focus on Joran Van der Sloot is a positive event is guilty of spin to the n’th degree.
A highly placed government official told Amigoe last week that the team expects to find Holloway’s remains soon in Aruba …
The OM says that the Aruban and Dutch detectives that are currently working on the case have indications that ‘justify a further criminal investigation.
Amigoe, April 28, 2007: Again a search at the home of the Van der Sloot family
About 20 forensic experts from the Netherlands searched the family home of Joran van der Sloot yesterday. This is the second time that this is done in connection with the disappearance case of Natalee Holloway.
ORANJESTAD – About 20 forensic-technical experts from the Netherlands have been busy searching the house of the family Van der Sloot since yesterday. The investigation on the disappearance of Natalee Holloway since May 30th 2005 received a new impulse since April 16th, said the Public Prosecutor (OM). The Corps national police service (KLPD) in the Netherlands has investigated the file again and came up with more findings.
A highly placed government official told Amigoe last week that the team expects to find Holloway’s remains soon in Aruba , But official channels do not confirm this. The tracks-investigation at the family home of Joran van der Sloot, who is still the main suspects in this case, will possibly take a few days. Experts of among others the Dutch Forensic Institute are combing out the house and the grounds around it and dogs have been put in. The OM does not want to tell what the reason is for this investigation and what they are looking for. The local authorities, the FBI, and officials of the Dutch Forensic Institute have already searched this house at numerous occasions before, and have confiscated several items and also 2 cars belonging to family Van der Sloot.
The OM says that the Aruban and Dutch detectives that are currently working on the case have indications that ‘justify a further criminal investigation. That’s all they wanted to say. Justice emphasized though that this house search has nothing to do with the book of Joran van der Sloot that was published in the Netherlands last Wednesday. “This search action was already planned as part of the investigation on the missing Natalee Holloway that is still going”, stated a press release of the OM.
Justice-minister Rudy Croes (MEP) asked the KLPD for assistance in the case last year. A team of Dutch detectives investigated the file and came out with a report and recommendations. The KLPD gave the report to the Attorney General at the end of last month and the investigation is being continued based on this. This one is being led by the Aruban public prosecutor Elivia Lugo.
