Diario: Fraudulent Drivers License Case in Aruba … the usual Suspects Paul Van der Sloot & Gerold Dompig


DIARIO, September 8, 2007: den caso “rijbewijs gate, Jossy 1 ”HUEZ DI ACUERDO CU PETICION DI VAN DER SLOOT, PA YAMA DOMPIG COMO TESTIGO Once again the usual suspects, Gerold Dompig and Paul Van der Sloot. Its nice to see that PVDS is a defense attorney for a suspected criminal. What a shock. The below article from Diario with references to van der Sloot and Dompig has to do with the following case in drivers license corruption case in Aruba. Jossy Mansur, Managing editor of Diario was kind enough to explain exactly what the gist of the article is as follows:

It has to do with a big case of corruption, in which fraudulent driver licenses were Drivers-license_fraudsold. Sloot was one of the defense lawyers for one of the implicated persons. Everyone of his proposals to the Judge (to void the citation, and to set his client free) were rejected. He then asked for Gerald Dompig to be put on the witness stand because he was in charge of the department that issues driver licenses at the time when the licenses were sold. The judge did grant Sloot the petition to put Dompig on the witness stand. Treatment of the case will continue on the 13th of September at 1:00 p.m.

When I asked Jossy Mansur whether the reference to van der Sloot was in fact the same infamous, Paul van der Sloot, he stated the following:

It is the same Paul van der Sloot, acting now as an attorney. 

Diario article:

      I don’t know which is more frightening:

      Paul VDS purporting to be practicing “law” or Paul VDS driving Aruba into hell.

      Someone with integrity needs to get behind the wheel and drive Paul VDS into jail with all the murderers of Natalee Holloway.

      Justice for Natalee.
      Contain the murderers, Aruba and drive them into jail.
      Set the victim, Natalee Holloway – FREE!

    2. disgustedmom on September 9th, 2007 7:14 pm

      Maybe they need to put Paulus on the stand too.

    3. bleachedblack on September 9th, 2007 7:46 pm

      There is something very disconcerting about PVDS practicing law. We know he has lied. We know he advised the perps to lie, to be evasive and obstruct
      the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Now he wants Dompig on the stand? How cozy can we get? ….as the song lyrics go:

      Your left hand
      Always watches your right
      So what if you trust in god
      If you can’t sleep at night

      Paulus defending (inept as it was) someone accused of a crime? Say it isn’t so!

      Dumbpig testifying for the defense? Was the oath: “I promise to tell everything but the truth”? How did he go from Chief of Police to issuer of drivers’ licenses. Doesn’t sound like a promotion to me.

    6. Maggie on September 9th, 2007 7:57 pm

      The guy he is defending is probably the one he and his family got their driver’s license, VIP pass to Carlos n Charlies, and law license from. Can you see Paulus in court based on his police statments. Well I don’t really recall who my client is.. I can’t really remember if I asked for Dompig to be on the stand or not. I can’t remember if this is the court date or not. I don’t recall if I’m a lawyer or not. I can’t remember if my client did this or not. Remember when he said he left the court and said he wasn’t going to return as long as his son was in this mess, because appearances were everything. Then he goes to work for his son’s lawyer. He’s even more sick than his son IMO. He and Anita let their son run the streets all night for years doing whatever he pleased. How is he a lawyer when he has his underage son in a casino drinking and gambling with him? Like Robots says they make me sick. Dompig taking people to court for fake driver’s license? What about Joran with his fake VIP pass to Carlos n Charlies which allowed Joran to be around Natalee? These people make the laws up as they go along and depends on who’s in trouble.

    7. Miss-Underestimated on September 9th, 2007 8:43 pm

      And the two meet up again. What lies with be told in that court room? I’d like to be a fly on the wall.

    8. Patti on September 9th, 2007 8:59 pm

      Yep… always blame everythng on Dompig.

      But, what about his predecessor?

      Did Dompig inherit some extracurricular
      duties with the job?

      It seems to me that Dompig is the one person
      that Van der Sloot would most like to hang.
      He was the one that got his son to confess to
      the murder of Natalee Holloway and was the one
      that was the least interested in going along
      with the dog and pony show that Paulus and
      Mr. Van der Straaten had cooked up. No wonder
      Dompig’s own son was dragged in for questioning.
      Personally, I believe it was then that Dompig
      cooled his heels.

      Makes you wonder… how deep is this sea of
      corruption that even the Police Commissioner
      would bow down to its’ power. Is there any
      doubt in Gerold’s mind that he and his family
      were next-in-line to be the scape-goat?

      We all saw how Mr. Jan left the island in a
      hurry shortly after the cover-up at the rocks.
      Seeking assylum, I suppose.

      I would close by saying that Aruba should rot in
      hell, but it is already rotten to the core. All
      I can hope for is Justice for Natalee and for all
      the other souls that got caught up in their web of
      lies and deceit.

      Boycott Aruba!

    9. Allan on September 9th, 2007 9:16 pm

      Aruba what a joke. Island of criminality run amuck.
      Pretense of government. Aruba island of the slow-witted. Island of self-interest only. Paulus, an attorney of law with no conscious and low to no moral quality. Proven to be a liar and womanizer.
      Proven to defend his son as rapist, murderer or worse.
      How in the hell could he get a woman except by force?

      Will one of those sick perverts in Aruba tell where the body is? Will they tell if she has been sold as a sex slave?

      If this was my daughter part of this would have been over?
      My mannerisms aren’t the same as Dave. Alas it is not my daughter bit I feel I have a interest, concern for the past 2 years.

      Aruba will always be in my mind a vile place. Which it is.

    10. Patti on September 9th, 2007 9:34 pm

      I agree with Allan. If it had of been my
      daughter, Joran wouldn’t be walking around
      with that half-witted look on his face. As
      soon as the videos came to light and the body
      in the bag was published, that would have been
      enough for me.

      Van der Sloot said, “I am going to protect my
      son” and as the mother of the victim, I would
      have protected my daughter. It was obvious,
      at that point, that the corruption ran deep in
      the island and Natalee would never have justice.
      The very people that were to protect her were
      carting her around, hiding her from her own
      parents, obstructing any justice that, under
      normal circumstances, is a God-given right.
      She was robbed, even, the right of a decent

    11. Charges as filed on September 9th, 2007 10:08 pm

      Within the past year, Tennessee LE charged several individuals with illegally assisting undocumented aliens with obtaining driver’s licenses. I know there were lawyers who defended those charged as that is a precept of the US constitution.

      It would seem then that the following is true

      1. Driver’s licenses are obtained illegally and with the assistance of individuals within the United States

      2. Those charged were represented by lawyers whose job it was to defend those charged with a crime.

      How is what happened in Aruba any different than what happened in Tennessee? Answer: NOTHING.

    12. dave on September 9th, 2007 10:43 pm


      you and disgusting mom must be related.

    13. brie on September 9th, 2007 10:51 pm

      I think Dompig was on the right track in the initial beginning but Straaten but a stop to everything…along with and including Rudy Croes and Nelson Oduber….shut that woman up and I am sick and tired of this case…why is Posner, a criminal allowed to own a casino in Aruba, Paulus did the paper work and no one ? him…he threatened Beth… no one ?’d him on his timeline involving Natalee…and now we show void the citation and set the criminal free…just like Joran….forget the crime and set him free…you have to be the worst thing that ever happened to Aruba…as a lawyer I am sure you have violated the rights of serving justice…the Dutch are going to nail your butt>>>!

    14. brie on September 9th, 2007 11:06 pm

      Aruba is now full of immigrants with illegal driver licenses…people are being killed and injured in traffic accidents…and Paulus defends them…I’m sure the people of Aruba are horrified by your actions of disrespect and safety of their island…You lost your credibility along time along… the judge, thank God he denied your requests…you can bring on Dompig and I hope he spills the beans….

    15. Kat_Gram on September 9th, 2007 11:23 pm

      I WOULD NOT WANT PAUL VAN DER SLOOT representing me. Are there no competent laywers in Aruba ?
      Guess not, or maybe these are legal aid cass he is picking up and the client takes whatever is assigned.

    16. observer on September 9th, 2007 11:27 pm

      Just a small snip of the coverup orchestrated by Paul Van Der Sloot and his Friends. No doubt in my mind Rudy Croes and PVDS are up to there eyeballs in Natalee’s dissapearance.

      Jossy Mansur
      October 4, 2005
      GRACE: … Jossy, regarding the connection, what I perceived to be a close connection between the judge, Paulus Van Der Sloot and the retired chief of police who initially handled Natalee`s case, Van Der Stratten, were they friends?
      MANSUR: Of course, they were friends. It stands to reason they were friends because Paul Van Der Sloot had many friends within the police department; he had many friends within the Department of Justice. And he had many friends with — and he was friendly with all the judges in Aruba. He worked out of the same office as they did and did the same work.

      Take a close look what a joke this Investigation is. The Police commish is best friends of Paul Van Der Sloot and worked for him years earlier. He even commented how can I do this to my best friends son? He was in constant contact with PVDS in the middle of a investigation and some of the conversations were even tapped. After he killed the Investigation,Authorities in Aruba said he was retiring to Holland as he had planned for many months. He then left to Bonaire and kept the same title. He gave his good Friend and Godson 10 days to destroy evidence,get there stories straight while he and dompig were framing two innocent men. What evidence has this man seen?

      5-13-05-Jan Van Der Straaten tells Joran he will help him get into a Mental Institution instead of prison.

      Tuesday night(5-14-05) during the broadcast of the most popular entertainment news program in The Netherlands, RTL-Boulevard, crime reporter John van den Heuvel announced that he talked to police commissioner Jan van der Straten, who is heading the investigation. The commissioner told van den Heuvel that they expect the case of Natalee Holloway to be solved within the next 24 hours.

      6-11-05 Announcement was made that there was a confession and the suspect was leading them to the body. Deputy Chief of Police Gerald Dompig used his star witness(Drug dealing crack head brother in-law Buti Naar)to implicate two innocent men to divert attention away from the real suspects. This same crack head later said that he saw Natalee Holloway with drugs. In turn the ALE now says that she killed herself from a cocaine overdose. Both are flat out lies and the whole world knows it.

      Also this same week Antonio Carlo visted the Chief Prosecuter Karen Janssen that Joran played a major role in the dissapearance of Natalee. What did she do with the information…Nothing!!
      Both Carlo and Van Der Sloot were barred from seeing Joran and for good reason. However that was short lived as apparently PVDS toook Rudy Croes to court and won the decision. Even though both of them Obstructed a Investigation by talking to witnesses.

      The Aruban newspaper, AweMeinta, opened their Wednesday edition with the following headline: “Tata di Joran cu caso kontra Ministerio Publico”, the translation of this headline is: “Joran’s father takes justice ministry to court”. The article relates that Joran’s father, Paulus van der Sloot, has lost his patience. Paulus van der Sloot is taking the justice ministry to court because Unlike Joran’s mother, he hasn’t been allowed to visit his son since his arrest. Van der Sloot is also mad because Joran’s attorney, Antonio Carlo, has been dismissed by the justice ministry. The case is supposed to begin today in Aruban court.

      Also Friday, the court barred van der Sloot’s lawyer, Antonio Carlo, from visiting the teen, effectively removing him from the case, said Attorney General spokeswoman Mariaine Croes.

      As a result, the van der Sloots retained two more attorneys for the defense of their son, Richie Kock and Arjan Debie.

      The court granted prosecutors’ request to remove Carlo because he had visited one of two former security guards who had been detained and released in the case, authorities said.

      Croes said the Dutch teenager has a team of lawyers, so Carlo’s removal will not leave them without representataion.
      On August 30, 2005 Judge Smit issued a ruling that Joran should be held another 30 days, fled to Curacao and immediately faxed in a reversal of his ruling. Two weeks later he released all of the suspects,while ignoring incrimating evidence as well as a list of inconsistencies from the suspects.
      DE VRIES: Well, the search in the home address of the family van der Sloot was very strange because the search warrant was made by head prosecutor Karin Janssen, and contained an allowance to search the whole address, “Montanja nineteen.”
      So, the gardens, the buildings–everything.

      But, when the police was on the spot, another high-ranking employee of the Justice office–it was Mr. Bob Witt–reduced the search warrant to only the room of Joran–and that was very strange.

      Paul Van Der Sloot was allowed to Obstruct Justice by editing Jorans Transcripts,Talking to witnesses and Lied about a murder investigation. He called Natalee a corpse before she was even reported as missing. Instead of telling his son to tell the truth he told him to be quiet and lie about what happened. When all of Aruba was looking for the Missing Girl he hired a team of lawyers. He is seen on Video tape with Natalee just hours before she dissapears at the Casino. It is also proven he picked up Joran and Natalee at about 4AM on 5-30-05. A Witness had seen him as well as many witnesses including Police Officials heard it from his own mouth.. On 6-17-05 he then changed his statement and said he picked Joran up at 11pm. That same day he called a friend in N.Carolina and told her Natalee died after she hit her head and drowned.

      He should have never been released as a suspect and been able to practice Law. He should be in prison!!It is proven he and his son were the last to see Natalee…So I have one question for Paul Van Der Sloot..What the hell did you do with Natalee Holloway??

      Joran van der Sloot: One day I will explain exactly what happened. But right now I don‘t feel ready to do that.
      Paul van der Sloot said in a phone conversation with Peter de Vries that they had a lot to tell but they will not do that just now because of people involved who could be hurt by this information

    17. Charges as filed on September 10th, 2007 12:06 am


      Actually, no we are not related.

      Why do you make that assertion?

    18. Patti on September 10th, 2007 12:16 am


      If Dompig was busy working on the investigation
      into the two security guards, it was because he
      was being kept out of the loop. Which is strange
      because he was the one that got Joran to confess
      in the first place. I, honestly, don’t think
      that he would have looked the other way if he had
      of been present during the removal of Natalee’s
      body from the rock area. I think he is more of
      the type that wanted to make a big splash and
      couldn’t help himself from going over the time
      limit for interviewing a minor because he WANTED
      to solve the crime.

      We all know who was in charge – Van der Straaton
      and at that time he was Dompig’s superior officer.
      Dompig had to do what he was told. By the time
      Dompig was in charge, the cover-up was complete,
      besides, he didn’t hold the same clout in the
      Justice Department as Van der Straaten and no one
      was going to spill the beans… it was over, with
      Dompig left to take the heat.

      That’s my interpretation.

    19. Carpe Noctem on September 10th, 2007 12:34 am

      She didn’t hit her head on a rock, Paulus…

      TRY THIS -

      Joran Vandersloot hit her in the head with that rock, as she was trying to desperately get away
      from that Eddie Munster looking maggot.

      She fell on it, as a direct result of your

      feral pig, rapist of a son. -j4n

      Excellent summary, Observer! ( #16)

      #11, maybe you should read #16, and if you still cant see what is different, then perhaps that’s because of what you are rooted in.

      There will always be a huge difference between INTEGRITY and DEPRAVITY.

      Patti, do you really believe that Gerold Dompig knew nothing about those painted rocks?

      Take a real closer look at the Aru-bay videos.

      If anything has become abundantly clear about Gerold Dompig, it’s the KIND of man he really is, and WHAT he really is.

      He’s the kind of man who picks up a beautiful child’s picture, claiming she’s “like family”, and then proceeds to slander her good honorable reprutation, her good and honorable character.

      He’s the kind of man who can sleep at night, knowing he participated in the savagery of lies and cruel depravity that denied a brutally victimized child – something as decent and simple as a grave, and denied her family any ability to ever be at peace.

      Gerold Dompig, the man who would be “chief”, who had neither the courage nor the integrity to honor what he KNEW was Natalee’s painful truths.

      That is his legacy to the children of Aruba.

    22. ben on September 10th, 2007 5:51 am

      Bravo Scared Monkeys,you continue to keep this case alive .Boycott Aruba.

    23. Richard on September 10th, 2007 8:38 am

      Given what we’ve seen go on in Aruba over the last few years, corruption with driver’s licenses is so picayune as to be risible.

      The whole damn place is corrupt, ruled by drug lords, money launderers and who knows what else.

      And our government doesn’t have the guts to speak out for an American citizen or an American family.

      I, too, still have my Natalee Holloway and “boycott Aruba” posters on my car’s back window. They aren’t coming down until we get answers, prosecutions, convictions, and the return of Natalee dead or alive.

      Remember Amy Bradley. It may have happened again.

    24. Pearl on September 10th, 2007 10:34 am

      Number 11 …if reading Observer doesn’t help you to understand the “differences”,
      then try the last ELEVEN WORDS of the PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE.


    25. brie on September 10th, 2007 1:20 pm

      #16….Paulus picked up Joran and Natalee at 4:am on 5-30, this is the first I’ve heard of that…all I have ever read is the atm withdrawal at 4:am, where did he pick them up at and who are the witnesses?

    26. Patti on September 10th, 2007 1:27 pm

      #21 – Pearl

      You’re right. Once he became Police Commissioner,
      he did slander the reputation of Natalee by
      suggesting that she died of a self-induced over-
      dose. After Michael was taken in for
      questioning, he all but dropped his interest in
      the case.

      But I do believe that there was a time when he,
      sincerely, wanted to crack Joran and find
      Natalee. In fact, he was the one that said there
      was proof that Natalee’s body had been moved
      several times which may account for the Dutch
      team taking soil samples. Who else in the
      Justice Department was willing to let the family
      be aware that there were several people involved
      in moving Natalee’s body around the island.

      I think that he was sincere in his investigation,
      but, someone got to him.

    27. mayan_moons on September 10th, 2007 2:56 pm

      To bad Dompig turned his back on justice and all the American’s who came to believe that he was the only official telling the truth and being straight with us. He could’ve been a hero but in the end was just another big fat ZERO to the Aruban people, Natalee and millions of American’s counting on him.

      Was Micheal involved with joining in on group sex with an unconcious tourist before Natalee? Maybe he was & his father threatened with video of it or just threats of other’s making statements that he had participated on previous tourist’s. But i think if he had been involved with Natalee we would’ve found out about it & he’d have been detained and his father would have never made the statements he made about the suspects to begin with.

    28. Pearl on September 10th, 2007 3:21 pm

      27 Patti, if Dompig was so concerned with Justice and Truth, then why did he cave in so rapidly, when Ahata offered him a chance to represent their version of “what” happened to Natalee, which he offered to the American public, as being what the “polis now believe”.

      I wonder what polis Dompig was referring to?

      Do you think that’s what OUR USA police now believe, Patti?
      Do you think that’s what our FBI believed, as they were being relegated to positions of “observer”, while Aruban officials were telling the media how “closely” Aruban polis were working with our FBI !

      What did initially seem like some remnant of genuine concern for Natalee, on Dompig’s part, faded rather rapidly.

      As I recall, he was very interested and outspoken concerning questions surrounding who the Dutch were going to appoint to the island as their next big polis “CHIEF”.

      Concern for Natalee, or self-serving interests that he hoped would merit him a pat on the back and a upgrade in salary?

      Only time will tell, Patti, but I can tell you this, I won’t be “holding my breaths” for a man who can’t seem to breathe one breath of life-giving sustenance for Natalee or for her heart broken, suffering, tormented family.

      Dompig spoke of what some might perceive as aspirations of hope through the holding of our breaths, while what lay beneath the big “build up” of the investigation being conducted by Karen Janssen, was nothing more than a suffocation of Natalee’s truth… a stealing of her precious breaths of truth!

      Breathing life into something so depraved and callously cruel as this case, would indeed be a powerful gesture – even from a man like Gerold Dompig.

      The question is: Is there something life-giving inside this man’s heart that he could be so moved as to behave with honor, integrity and a long lost sense of justice?

      I would be very happy to be very wrong about who Gerold Dompig appears to be.

      Only time will tell…

      In the meantime, Natalee’s hope awaits the chance that someone with enough compassion in their heart, and a sense of truth and integrity in their soul, might breathe new life into this vicious prison of torment that Beth and Dave continue to be subjected to.

      Justice for Natalee!

    29. observer on September 10th, 2007 3:59 pm


      Please see the other thread about the 4am pickup/dropoff. I believe there was a witness who saw PVDS driving at 3-4AM,Many witnesses heard PVDS declare it as well as the Supreme Court of Aruba said he had two contacts with Natalee. You can forget about Joran leaving Natalee at the beach and Paulus sleeping soundly throughout the night because it never happened.

      PVDS said to many people that he picked both Natalee and Joran up at Mcdonalds at 4AM. It’s possible it was never a pickup because they were already at the VDS house. The Key question is where did he take them because it certainly wasnt the HI. Only two places come to mind and thats the Van Der Sloot or the Van Rijn house. What day did Joran catch the bus to school on the rd outside of Savaneta??

    30. Patti on September 10th, 2007 5:51 pm


      Maybe you’re right or maybe the scales of justice
      are tipped by the wealthy and powerful. I believe
      that had it been Dompig or anyone else, they would
      have buckled under that power.

      Maybe he got some money… apparantly, he had the
      money to invest in a private security company with
      all the state of the art equipment to handle any-
      thing from your average house break-in to an all
      out terrorist attack. You don’t earn that kind
      of money on a police commissioner salary.

      The point that I was making is that I find it
      rather funny that Paulus Van der Sloot should
      want to go after Gerold Dompig, given the varying
      circumstances of the Holloway case, mainly, the
      confession. Perhaps he’s got a vendeta against
      the guy and who should know better about the
      extra-curricular activities of that position than
      Van der Straaten’s best friend, the Judge in
      Training, himself, Paulass Ban der Snoop.

      We’ll see…

      Perhaps their past history might have some relevant factors….
