Aruba’s Choller Problem, Second Relief Center will come in Oranjestad


The choller problem continues to be an issue on One Happy Island. The number of homeless and drug addicts has drastically increased in Aruba in the past few years. Still think its the same Aruba as it ever was?

Amigoe, May 14, 2007: Most likely a second relief for chollers in Oranjestad    

ORANJESTAD — Despite heavy criticism expressed by politics, proprietors, and citizens on the government’s relief-policy for the homeless in the past months, Public-health-minister Booshi Wever (MEP) continues to back his policy.   He didn’t exclude during a debate in Parliament last Friday that a second relief center will come in Oranjestad.    

The minister says that the current relief center Dak riba Cabez – the former Hotel Central – offers accommodation to 50 homeless drug addicts and that all the beds are currently taken.   He continues to insist that the relief center must stay in its current location.   He even thinks that a second one must future, because the number of homeless people has drastically increased in the last few years.   He also says that he likes the idea of the relief center, where the drug addicts can get a bite to eat and because of this, be less aggressive.   However, AVP , MPA, and RED are of the opinion that Wever is undermining the current problems and has to attend to the pleading of the community, who want the relief center in the center of town be closed down and moved elsewhere.   They do not want the chollers in the center of town.

AVP also showed a report of the Drug Control Coordination Bureau that mentions the lack of relief centers in Oranjestad and Dakota.   The minister could not even give figures on the addicted homeless persons that have rehabilitated after their stay in the relief centers.   “If the minister’s objection is to fill the stomach of the drug addicted homeless people, why does he need 2 million florins for that now?   When I was a priest, I also helped with a project that feeds the homeless and it definitely didn’t cost this much, said Rudy Lampe of RED.

      Start with the predators. Clean them from your island first. Then, worry about the chollars!

      I wonder if Aruba Tourism Authority will be talking about the choller issue? Two guesses, of which one doesn’t count….

      How about stopping the drugging of tourists at C and C’s.
      Did it ever occur to you to set a camera on the bartender?

      Even Dennis Jacobs admitted it goes on and yet,
      you do nothing about it!

      #3 I say a better solution is to shut C and C’s down.

      Even if they suspect they are drugging drinks they can remove they liqour license…no license no business.

      Dutch Team:


      “Freddy gave his statement on June 12. He told polis that Joran told him the HI lie on May 30.”

      (Special knowledge of Natalee’s disappearance on the part of Joran–the HI lie was made up long before Beth arrived and before it was publicly known that Natalee was missing)

      How did Joran know about Natalee’s disappearance so soon?
      Because he was INVOLVED in a MAJOR WAY.

      Go after Paulus. He knew early on, too!

      Holler for the Choller….Aruba while your cleaning uptown, how bout the Klaphoes and VDS?

      This is from Freedy’s PV …The FBI and the girls family were at his house. After that Joran told me that Deepak, Satish and himself did not drop off the girl at the Holiday Inn Hotel, but that the four of them drove to the beach at the north side of the Marriot Hotel. The girl had fallen several times on the way to the beach. Joran told me that at some point she “no longer came around/no longer regained consciousness” and that they had left her on the beach.

      This is all according to Joran but his ” friend ” says this. And Paulus and Anita knew that this had happened.
      This does not sound like a romantic consentual interlude on the beach does it ? Did she fall trying to get away from her attackers ? Or, did they chase her down ? Or push her down ? Or hit her with the car ? Or did Joran kick her with his missing shoes as Peter De Vries thinks ? And these animals hire a lawyer… Joe Tacopina to rehab Joran’s public image and the creep writes a book for profit ? The persons who started the Joran Defense Fund and solicited donations must be just as sick to think that these animals were in need of a defense fund. What were all the American interviews about where Joran lied and lied and his parents tried to pretend that he was a normal person. And Anita teached children. What a sick bunch of perverts the Sloots are !

      I believe that the silence of Beth Twitty is furthering the Aruban agenda of protecting Paulus and Joran. It was the voice of this determined mother who would stop at nothing in her quest for answers … in her quest for justice … in her quest to expose the corrupt investigation. Beth asked the hard questions that dictated media attention. According to Natalee’s father, Dave Holloway, the focus of the media on the disappearance of his daughter is only reason that Aruba is going the motions of an investigation … the only reason for one horse and pony show after another.
      Aruba cannot win. Beth may required a time to renew her strength … renew her spirit but … justice for Natalee demands that she again has to rise up and be heard. This incredible woman needs to continually remind the world that conflicts of interest within the Aruban investigation is prevent jutice from prevailing

      VAN SUSTEREN: Did the media help or hurt you?
      HOLLOWAY: Oh, the media was our best friend. If it hadn’t been for the media this thing would have been swept under the table the very first day and we’d have been calling back to Aruba “Have you heard anything? Have you heard anything?” I truly believe that.

There’s nowhere that I won’t go, and there’s nothing-I’m going to ask every question. I don’t care how painful it is. I will do it, because I’m not going to have any regrets.

      Aruba Tourism, you should be cheering the Dutch Team on.
      A prosecution and conviction will HELP tourism.

      Don’t let the predators ruin your island.
      You will become known as Predators’ Paradise.

      Dutch Team:

      Was Deepak’s car switched?

      How about the interior?


      Dutch Team:

      Why haven’t you charged Steve Croes for providing a fake alibi?
      My grandmother could get him talking, for crying out loud!

      Dutch Team,

      Koen (afraid and sleeping with parents)
      Satish (seeing Natalee’s ghost)
      Steve Croes (not too bright)

      JANSSEN: Well, the father has spoken with those three suspects and he said he gave them some legal advice but I think the advices were going further than that. They spoke about the situation that when there is no body, you don’t have a case, and that was already in the first day after the disappearance. And secondly, the father and the mother have asked a friend of Joran, the suspect-the minor suspect, to come to their home to tell them what he has explained to the police. And that is, well, I can say was an obstruction of the investigation.
      SAVIDGE: Do you consider the father a suspect or is it this obstruction or interference that you arrested him for?

      JANSSEN: No, we did not arrest him for that interference situation. He was a suspect and the judge made his decision that there were insufficient grounds to make him a suspect.

      Bootie, with Dompigs help is establishing where the drug addicts can live in the bushes at the motels. They will still be able to peep in and steal from tourists tho. Drug problem cured from Dompig and Bootie, thanks guys.

      Choller, Yikes! This means you need to get your Choller shots before you go to Aruba….I have had them, there are 3….two weeks apart. And they don’t last long….so you will have to do it again and again….if the price of jet fuel doesn’t put them under then CHOLLER will. Oh my, what’s next?

      If the chollers aren’t happy they are forced to hang themselves like we saw last week. It was a casual suicide where he had his hand in his pocket. Much more peacefull than Pitbulls suicide. Suicide rate vs murder rate in Aruba must be the highest in the world!! One Happy Island!!!!!!!

      I think there are several ways to read Freddy’s statement of June 12th. He could have been saying not that Joran the dirtbag told him the story on May 30th, but rather that at a later date Joran told him the story that on May 30th they dropped her off at the HI. However, there is no question in my mind that Freddy knows more than he’s told.

      There’s also no question in my mind that Anita and Paulus know more.

      As far as the chollers problem – you would thing the Aruban government would make arrangements to rent some of those empty hotel rooms at a discount rate to them rather than building a new structure. And yes, the homeless rate has increased in the last year. Now is the Aruban government smart enough to figure out why? Hint: Her name is Natalee Holloway.

      Boy that place is really sounding more and more like a vacationers’ paradise. Just what I always like to do on my vacations, beat off the sex perverts while running from the chollers. Disney is probably already inventing this type of interactive ride.

      Show some integrity and honor, sloots. How do you sleep? Well, I guess when you are dutch in aruba it doesnt matter. You will always be on top, huh? Well, for what its worth…..this will never go away. I actually feel sorry that you will always wonder what people are thinking when they look at you. Yep..thats what they are thinking..thats them…the Sloots…..pathetic.

      ORANJESTAD, Aruba – Dutch and Aruban investigators on Saturday went to the house of two brothers who were once suspects in the 2005 disappearance of an Alabama teenager, the Aruban prosecutors’ office said.

      The investigators conducted what they termed an “inspection” of the property where Surinamese brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe live with their parents, a spokeswoman for the prosecutors’ office, Vivian van der Biezen, told The Associated Press. Nothing was seized from the home and no further details were released, the prosecutors’ office said in a statement.

      An inspection aims to analyze “a specific place or circumstances under which a criminal offense may have been committed” or to establish facts in a criminal case, the statement said.

      Journalists need to get their facts straight before witing articles.. They (klaphoes are still supsects)

      Outside of that…this article infers that they investigation is looking for something in the houses…maybe the pigeon had told that is both of these houses…
