Aruban Government Selling Aruba Out from Underneath their People

 

So Aruba, do you really think your government is looking out for you? They seem to be selling your island right out from beneath you, including the last few beaches where the Aruban public goes. All in the name of money and tourism. Does this represent the people or the wealthy off island investor?

Some may have already received permission, like for Boca Grandi and Baby Beach .   We are talking here about the last beaches of Aruba that are not taken by private developers and where the local people frequently go to.

Amigoe, May 21, 2007: Tierra del Sol expands towards Arashi    

Guests of the new Tierra del Sol beach hotel will probably also use the idyllic beach of Arashi.

ORANJESTAD — Tierra del Sol is going to build another hotel complex, Punto Arashi, on 21 acres of her own property; near the old flight of stairs to the lighthouse, across of restaurant El Faro Blanco.          

Punto Arashi is going to be a beach hotel.   ON 25 acres behind the hotel complex, the project developers will build two new branded neighbourhoods, Campo Bello and Paseo Bello.     A spokes person of Tierra del Sol said that the plans are of the design table.   According to reports, the resort will also ask permission to use part of the Arashi beach for her guests.    

Rumours are going around for quite some time already that about the government granting concessions to hotels for beach grounds from Fisherman’s Huts all the way to Westpunt. Rudy Lampe of RED is trying to get inspection of the list of hotels that are negotiating pieces of land with the government.   Some may have already received permission, like for Boca Grandi and Baby Beach .   We are talking here about the last beaches of Aruba that are not taken by private developers and where the local people frequently go to.   The media published earlier that three parties are competing in the tender of a hotel near Fisherman’s Hut; an investment group from Venezuela , Global Destinations on behalf of the Hilton group, and two local proprietors René Kan and Milton Berlinski on behalf of the Fairmont Hotel group.

      Yeah, its only a matter of time before this filthy place sinks into the ocean for all the useless crap they are building. GIVE NATALEE BACK and we will leave your place alone.I really feel sorry for the POOR ppl there. They have no say about anything…Crazy. Soon,Arubians wont be able to mingle with the tourists.Which is a good thing, however if Natalee doesnt get JUSTICE, there wont be any tourists. You only have a few days left DUTCH… lets go.

      Awwwwwww Thank you for your concern SM. You are all soo soo kind.

    3. Pearl on May 23rd, 2007 1:01 pm

      Gabriel Leo, please understand.

      No one means any harm to the good people of Aruba, nor does anyone wish too see any more suffering inflicted upon Natalee’s beautiful family.

      Gabriel Leo, do you not have a mother who loves you, who values you, who sees you as precious in her eyes?

      Can you not understand why Natalee’s mother needs her baby back? Can you not understand the sorrow in Natalee’s father’s heart?

      Can you not find it in your heart to be moved by compassion for the suffering that has been inflicted upon Natalee’s family – if only to honor their requests that remains be returned to them, so that they can at the very least, provide her with a dignified burial?

      These are not extravagant wishes, Gabriel Leo.
      Surely, even you can understand the sorrow in this mother’s heart, and the agony in this father’s soul – in the aching pain they carry inside in the knowledge that they will never see their beloved child again.

      Surely you can see that our spirit of unity to stand by Natalee’s side and join together in boycotting Aruba until justice is served, is a path chosen out of duty and moral responsibility not only to the cause of Natalee’s justice and truth, but for the sacredness of children everwhere who deserve to be protected from what was inflicted upon Natalee and her family.

      We only seek justice for Natalee and her family.
      Nothing more, nothing less.

      JUSTICE FOR NATALEE HOLLOWAY!
      KNOWLEDGE MUST ACT WITH INTEGRITY AND TRUTH!

      Vicki and I have been making calls, and today I finally got through to someone who confirmed that Aruba Tourism Authority will be attending a travel show at the Hilton Hotel located at 2 Poydras Street in New Orleans on June 27 to July 1.

      The sponsor of the event, http://www.vacations.com, said it is open ONLY TO TRAVEL AGENTS.

      I’m hoping that those of you with blogs will post this info, and that other people will pass the information around as widely as possible. As always, I hope to serve as an information coordinator at the VolunteersforNatalee@gmail.com address, and encourage you to include that e-mail address (but not my name) as a point of contact.

      We confronted Aruba Tourism Authority in Boston.
      We confronted Aruba Tourism Authority in Miami.

      Now let’s stand up for Natalee in New Orleans.

      Pray tell how can the Aruban government sell what they do not own.

      That land is owned by the hotel that is expanding so is the beach.

      And just look at all the US owners and investors.

    16. Mohican on May 23rd, 2007 3:59 pm

      Yielding beach priviliges to tourists is the price Arubans have to pay for prosperity…Arubans would be more worried about problems of greater social repercussions such as the UN complaint about sexual abuse and human rights violations at KIA.

    17. Rastus on May 23rd, 2007 4:10 pm

      Before we start our self-congratulatory comments about this article, we should all understand something very clearly. This article, at it’s core, is about the gov’t of Aruba taking lands and selling those lands to developers.

      In the USA, the same thing happens — its called Eminent Domain. Kid yourelf not, our very own government (city, state) have taken PRIVATE lands and offered them to developers who will ‘re-develop’ the acquired land into ‘better use’ (read: a use that will pay higher taxes).

      So, before we start our attempts at smacking around Aruba, we might want to understand that a very similar occurance happens in our very own country (that would be the USA for you naysayers whose keen sense of observation has somehow made me an Aruban).

      Please comment on the following:

      I have received many e-mails about a boycott. Natalee’s family has told me that they don’t want Aruba boycotted. One reason is that the hotels have been very generous to her and her family and of course the hotels rely on tourism for their income. They do not want to hurt the hotels. So perhaps you could think of another way to voice your protest over this investigation. Incidentally, Aruba has gorgeous beaches and can be a wonderful place for a vacation. One really bad incident – like Natalee’s disappearance – is not a reason to fear the island.

      Yes, they didn’t initially want to do it because

      it does bring harm to innocent Arubans.

      However,

      that was back before Nelson “MY SON RAPED THE MAID & OTHER YOUNG WOMEN” ODUBER was still spitting out sound bites like:

      “NOONE IN ARUBA IS ABOVE THE LAW, WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL
      WE GET THE PERSONS WHO DID THIS TO NATALEE!” ROFL

      … Finally,

      People woke up to realize that Aruba was working to sweep
      this under the rug for good! That casts a different light on everything.

      This investigation on the Aruba end of it, is a joke.

      Obviously you have gotten behind in certain aspects of the Natalee Holloway case. Let me update you. A boycott was called by Governor Bob Riley in November, 2005 on behalf of Natalee’s Family. The implication would be that both Dave Holloway and Beth Twitty supported the actions of Governor.
      _____________________

      BOYCOTT CALLED ON BEHALF OF NATALEE’S FAMILY
      Governor Bob Riley
      CBS News – November 8, 2005
      Gov. Bob Riley called for a nationwide travel boycott of Aruba on Tuesday on behalf a missing Alabama teenager’s family, who accuse the island’s government of not fully cooperating with the investigation into her disappearance.
      .
      http://www.legislature.state.al.us/searchableinstruments/2006RS/Resolutions/SJR13.htm
      WHEREAS, Governor Riley has recognized with appreciation the efforts of many private citizens of Aruba for their assistance in the search for Natalee; however, on November 17, 2005, after careful consideration of the official actions of the government of Aruba, Governor Riley, joined by Natalee’s family, urged all Americans to avoid travel to Aruba.
      .
      DAVE HOLLOWAY SUPPORTS THE BOYCOTT
      Aruba Truth – November 9, 2005
      “I do not have a formal response available at this time, but I will support the decisions of elected officials and therefore support what the Alabama government has decided to do,” Holloway said in a telephone interview Tuesday evening. “The Aruban people elected their officials to make decisions in the best interests of their people, and we have done the same. The Alabama governor made a decision on Natalee’s behalf, so I will support that position.”
      .
      On the Record w/ Greta – November 17, 2005
      HOLLOWAY: … I made sure that the prime minister understood our position. You know, I had been holding off on this boycott as long as I could, and I told him, I said, you know, The big wave is coming, and if you guys are not going to listen, I can’t help you anymore.
      .
      BETH TWITTY SUPPORTS THE BOYCOTT
      CBS NEWS
      March 25, 2006
      Last fall, Twitty called for a boycott of Aruba. The island’s tourism industry has suffered: Travel bookings are off more than 4 percent from a year ago. Does she still support a boycott of Aruba? “The only leverage that we have in getting any traction in the investigation is when they feel the effects of a boycott,” says Twitty.

    24. Rastus on May 23rd, 2007 5:44 pm

      Why do you assume that those who believe J2K innocent are not supporters of Nat?

      Fact of the matter, one can support Nat and yet have a different (and completely plausible) view of the chain of evnets leading to her dissappearance.

      Your apparent argument to the contrary should frighten you.

      Simple question, if you could wake up tomorrow morning, and the case was solved (e.g. airtight, no loose ends), AND the outcome was 180 degrees opposite of what many on this board believe, could you support the findings?

      I know I could — regardless of outcome.

      Owww stop contradicting yourself. First you say no tourists come to Aruba or as you so proudly call it Satan’s Island. Then you change your words and say only Old People and tinny Kids come here. Hey I betcha tiny kids don’t just get aboard on a plane all by themselves and go to Aruba. Old or tinny (with their parents), I think they are also called tourists! But hey, since you said no one comes to Satan’s Island You must be DarnNN right, because hey your PC, US Media and a newspaper, which this blogg site has become so found of, from Curacao (Amigoe) says so, so dog nag it, it MUST BE SO!

      Thou shalt not permit sexual predators to stalk and prey upon your only means of survival, tourists.

      Wow, impressive. 20 people on the beach in Aruba at 9:15am and NO people on the beach at 6PM! That’s right, not one friggin soul. Aruba must really be crowded with all those tourists when no one is on the beach during a beautiful sunset.

      Guess the US developers are buying up the great beaches so they will have nice developments when Aruba totally sinks. Perhaps they will sell out the whole crappy little island.

      Beth and Dave have to walk a fine line on the boycott..just in case there might be just one moral, decent individual on that foul smelling island that will come forward with some credible information to help them find their daughter.
      As far as their beaches are concerned, if we are in the middle of global warming I hope the whole place gets washed away, but not before we’ve found Natalee.

      You know GL, actually we do care. Which is more than I can say for your Govt, the VDS’s or the people that helped cover up Natalee’s disappearance. Your sarcastic attitude and those with the same mind set as you have only helped bury Aruba.

      Do you actually think its funny that the very land that was set aside for Arubans is now the privately owned property of rich developers? You actually find that humorous? Your own govt is selling the interests of its own island to others all in the name of the mighty florin. And I am sure there are some back door reimbursements as well.

      Red- I care. That’s why I’m still here. Why I am not giving up. The more they fight it ~ the more determined I become.

      If we didn’t care this would have been over on day 2. As far as I can see it’s the bloggers and the posters that have kept this case in the spotlight for almost two years. Not an easy feat if you ask me. I can’t think of another case that has had the staying power that this one has had.

      If they close the case without charging JP2K I will tell more people than I originally told to go to Aruba not to go.

      The boycott isn’t about revenge; it is a call to justice.

      I care about the effect on everyday people; however, I care more about
      the justice that Natalee deserves.

      You still haven’t answered the question in comment 9.

      Rob,

      If the case is closed without charges, it will be easy to convince
      more people to join the boycott. No one will want to go to Coverup Island.

      Which funeral home Rob?

    39. mayan_moons on May 23rd, 2007 10:56 pm

      Natalee’s case does have staying power thanks to all of you who have given of themselves so much to see the guilty put where they belong and bring Natalee home. We knew it would be a battle and it has been but we have won some of these battles. Some of the most important were catching Peter de Vries attention with Natalee’s story, another is seeing some of Paulus’s contemparies call him on the carpet.
      The BOYCOTT is working folks and we know that coz there wouldn’t be any Dutch Investigator’s on Aruba now and having searched the Sloot property if we hadn’t fought for it!

      If i ever need unyeilding support from people i know i can count on to never give up, the people of Scared Monkeys is where i would come.

      Thanks Rob…..i believe there are 3 funeral homes on the island arn’t there?

    43. mayan_moons on May 23rd, 2007 11:31 pm

      This is the first i’ve heard of Gabe being related with this funeral home you linked!

    44. mayan_moons on May 23rd, 2007 11:45 pm

      Jurine and his father Paulus treated Natalee so bad and the way Beth,Dave and the rest of the families were treated by Aruba Official’s and ALE is shameful and disgusting.

    45. Richard on May 24th, 2007 5:29 am

      Actually, all that those of us who support the boycott are doing are pointing to the actions of the Arubans. Since day one of Natalee’s saga, it is Aruba, with its deeds and omissions, its lies, evasions, and hostility, that has provided the BEST REASONS to boycott.

      Anyone who is familiar with this case would boycott Aruba simply as a matter of common sense. You don’t need to be bitten by a rattlesnake to know that it is best to avoid them. Similarly with Aruba: we’ve seen how their government has treated one American family. Why take the risk of being put in the same position?

      Those of us who adhere to ideas of basic justice and equity, of course, have even stronger reasons to avoid it.

      No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.

      #28 and #30 – NICE JOB!

      #36 – Absolutely!

      Dutch investigators: WHY was DEEPAK looking for people to LIE FOR HIM after being IDENTIFIED AND SEEN by the Gardener?

      DUTCH INVESTIGATIVE TEAM: WHERE ARE THE FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS TO ALL THE LIES AND UNANSWERED QUESTIONS?

      DUTCH INVESTIGATORS: IS THIS WHY THE FBI WALKED OUT?

      GEROLD DOMPIG: How can you uphold security on the island of Aruba, if you can’t even manage an honest investigation into the crimes executed upon Natalee Holloway, particularly since you gave that big speech about how the ALE follows all leads? Where’s the follow up questions to the many, many inconsistent statements and ALL THE LIES told by: PAULUS, JORAN, DEEPAK and SATISH?

      To paraphrase a few…

      Where are the follow ups to: “WE GOT BORED AND ALL DECIDED TO GO TO THE HOUSE…”

      Where are the follow ups to: ‘I first realized he wasn’t home when I went to his apartment and knocked on the door’?

      Where are the follow ups to: “That is impossible. He was with me at the casino gambling.”

      Where are the follow ups to: I picked him up at 4 AM on 5/30.
      I picked him up at 11 PM on 5/29?

      Where are the follow ups to: “The father….ALL OF THEM TOGETHER MADE UP THE WHOLE STORY…the SECURITY GUARD, THE CLOTHES HE WORE…EVERYTHING…” ?

      Where are the follow ups to: the dispicable LIES that followed DEEPAKS JAIL-CONFESSION TO MICKEY JOHN, THAT ATTEMPTED TO MORPH “THE MEETING” – FROM HAVING OCCURED BEFORE THE LIES BEGAN TO BE TOLD – TO – “We held a few meetings at our house and discussed the case…”

      WHERE ARE THE FOLLOW UPS TO: DAY 1 ” NO CORPSE, NO CASE” ?

      FIND A CONSCIENCE: BOYCOTT ARUBA!

      PROTECT CHILDREN FROM GANG RAPISTS SANCTIONED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT: BOYCOTT ARUBA!

      PROTECT YOUR FAMILY FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT’S SANCTIONS OF CRIMINAL ACTS EXECUTED UPON TOURISTS: BOYCOTT ARUBA.

      FIND YOUR VOICE: STAND UP FOR JUSTICE; STAND UP FOR INTEGRITY, STAND UP FOR NATALEE HOLLOWAY AND BOYCOTT ARUBA!

      NO JUSTICE, NO HONOR, NO INTEGRITY, NO TRUTH, NO FINDING NATALEE AND RETURNING HER TO HER FAMILY? – THEN NO TOURISM.

      TAKING A STAND AGAINST CRIMES COMMITTED UPON CHILDREN IS AN ACT OF INTEGRITY.

      TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST PREMEDITATED HIDEOUS CRIMES COMMITTED UPON CHILDREN – THAT ARE SANCTIONED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS IN ARUBA, IS A MORAL IMPERATIVE.

      BOYCOTT ARUBA = PROTECTING THE SACREDNESS OF CHILDREN!

      BOYCOTT ARUBA = STANDING TOGETHER AGAINST VIOLATIONS OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF NATALEE HOLLOWAY!

      BOYCOTT ARUBA = STANDING BESIDE NATALEE HOLLOWAY, WHO WAS TARGETED FOR KIDNAPPING, RAPE AND MURDER, WHILE ALL THE PRIMARY SUSPECTS IN HER CASE WERE IGNORED, EVIDENCE DESTROYED, COLLUSIONS AND COVERUPS PLOTTED, AND A HIDEOUS CONTEMPT DISPLAYED FOR HONOR, INTEGRITY, JUSTICE AND THE SACREDNESS OF NATALEE’S LIFE, WHILE HER KILLERS AND ALL THE CRIMINAL CO-CONSPIRATORS WERE THEN GRANTED THEIR FULL UNIMPEDED FREEDOM, AS NATALEE CONTINED TO BE DISREGARDED.

      FIND A CONSCIENCE AND STAND UP FOR NATALEE HOLLOWAY!
      BOYCOTT ARUBA.

      NO JUSTICE FOR NATALEE = NO TOURISM FOR ARUBA.

      JUSTICE FOR NATALEE HOLLOWAY!

      Ok I have 2 questions those vey disturbing pics obvioulsy I see what they are showing. But I want do not understand who is the photographer of these pics. They are obvioulsy GUILTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! of hiding the body. What was done with the bag?

    48. Pearl on May 24th, 2007 8:47 am

      Dutch Investigative team: Where are your follow up questions to the identical descriptions given on May 31 by Deepak AND Satish for a BLACK SECURITY GUARD – WHO ALE KNEW DID NOT EXIST?

      Dutch Investigative team: Where are the questionings of hotel employees from the HI Hotel?

      Dutch Investivgative team: Where are the follow ups to Joran, Deepak and Satish concerning the admission of the HOTEL SURVEILLANCE TAPES indicating that NO DROP OFF EVER TOOK PLACE AND THAT NO BLACK SECURITY GUARD EVER EXISTED?

      Dutch investigative team: Why were there no records of the casino security surveillance tapes being viewed or used as a basis for questioning Paulus, for verification regarding Paulus’ statements concerning HIS ACTIONS on 5/29?

      It’s difficult to believe Dompig’s “We follow every lead” spin, Dutch Investigative team, when we SEE that NOTHING was FOLLOWED UP ON THAT WOULD IN FACT LEAD TO NATALEE’S KILLERS, WHILE – PLENTY WAS CREATED AS A DIVERSION TO “FOLLOW” THAT LED TO ABSOLUTELY – NOTHING.

      Can you explain this Van der Straaten/Dompig/method of polis work to us?

      Dutch Investigative team: can you help us understand why a search would be started that directs everyone to head SOUTH to the San Nichols area, when in fact, POLIS KNEW – that NATALEE WAS EYE WITNESSED BEING LED AWAY BY JORAN, AT C AND C’s?

      CAN YOU HELP US UNDERSTAND WHY THE “BIG SEARCH” HEADED SOUTH – TO SAN NICHOLS ON JUNE 7th, WHEN ALE KNEW ON MAY 31, THAT JORAN, DEEPAK AND SATISH ALL AGREED TO GO TO “THE HOUSE” ?

      CAN YOU HELP US UNDERSTAND HOW…THE LAST THREE MEN SEEN TAKING A MISSING CHILD AWAY, ARE ALL LYING REPEATEDLY, WITH EVIDENCE MOUNTING THAT THEY ARE LYING AND CLEARLY AVAILABLE – IMMEDIATELY TO POLIS, YET, ALL OF THIS IS IGNORED SO THAT A FAKE-SEARCH CAN BE CONDUCTED DAYS LATER, IN ORDER TO LEAD TTENTION AWAY FROM THE PLACE KNOWN BY POLIS TO HAVE BEEN USED AS A POINT THAT THE VICTIM WAS TAKEN TO?

      WHY WOULD THE ALE LEAD A SEARCH TO SAN NICHOLS, WHEN THEY KNEW ON MAY 31, THAT DEEPAK, JORAN, AND SATISH HAD TAKEN NATALEE TO “THE HOUSE” AND, SINCE ALE IMMEDIATELY KNEW THAT NATALEE WAS NEVER RETURNED TO THE HOLIDAY INN, WHY WAS “THE HOUSE” NEVER SEARCHED IMMEDIATELY ON MAY 31, AND WHY WAS A SEARCH IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION BEING CONDUCTED, AFTER THE INNOCENT BLACK MEN WERE ARRESTED – WHO, INCIDENTALLY WERE BARELY QUESTIONED?

      CAN YOU HELP US UNDERSTAND HOW SAN NICHOLS BECAME THE TAGETTED “SEARCH” POINT, DUTCH TEAM?

      CAN YOU EXPLAIN HOW THE CAR AND THE HOUSE WERE NEVER SEARCHED IMMEDIATELY IF THESE WERE CLEARLY THE LAST PLACES WE KNOW THAT NATALEE WAS SEEN IN AND TAKEN TO?

      BOYCOTT ARUBA: STOP THE LIES, STAND UP FOR INTEGRITY AND JUSTICE FOR NATALEE!

      GET A CONSCIENCE: BOYCOTT ARUBA!

    49. LilPuma on May 24th, 2007 8:56 am

      So Aruba is selling it’s beaches to developers for money and the US is selling it’s citizens and their tax money for votes.

      Feeling cynical and a bit grumpy this a.m., but it’s true.

    50. Vicki on May 24th, 2007 8:57 am

      well said Richard…very well said. Its commen sense to boycott the Island.Bad things can happen,but when you are SET UP and drugged…than how can you avoid it???By not going there.
      Has anyone gone back and read Freddys statement to the polis? He states that Natalee fell down many times and then finally just didnt wake up…..according to what satans spawn told him….

      Susan posted this in #29 but it bears repeating:

      Thou shalt not permit sexual predators to stalk and prey upon your only means of survival, tourists.

    52. Pearl on May 25th, 2007 8:44 am

      Building on the amazing J4N and Susan ( 28 and 51):

      Thou shalt NOT …

      1. Thou shalt not permit sexual predators to stalk and prey upon your only means of survival, tourists.

      2. Thou shalt not villify a CHILD brutally victimized, and glorify MURDERERS.

      3. Thous shalt not label a defenseless little tourist girl – ganged up on by a bunch of savages as: “ISOLATED INCIDENT”.

      Help me out, Monkeys!!….CONTINUE THE “THOU SHALT NOTS”!!!

    53. Pearl on May 25th, 2007 9:41 am

      Oops! I inadvertantly left out the great Janet!

      Building on 28, 29, and 51…

      Let’s build a THOU SHALT NOT for ARUBA!

    54. Brie on May 26th, 2007 3:07 pm

      testing

    55. Cory Skalisky on February 7th, 2008 7:49 pm

      I would encourage everyone to continue to boycott any and all vacations to Aruba until Joran faces justice for killing Natalie Holloway. The world can see it, but apparently the ones in power in Aruba choose to look the other way. Shame on you.
      There are so many beautiful islands in this world…who needs aruba.
