Joran Van der Sloot Ordered Held by Judge for 8 More Days … Also, So Much for No Body No Crime


Today for Joran van der Sloot it was an Aruban Ground Hog Day … the judge saw Joran’s shadow and ordered the suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Hollway to spend another 8 days behind bars.



A judge today in Aruba ordered that suspect in the Natalee Holloway disappearance, Joran Van der Sloot, be held for eight more days. Joran Van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers are being held and charged with the voluntary manslaughter of Natalee Holloway.

 Joran Van der Sloot ordered to stay behind bars for another 8 days

So much for Paulus Van der Sloot’s comment to his son Joran of “no body, no crime”.

Joran says to the brothers: You said that he (Joran’s father) said that if there’s no corpse there’s no case, or I don’t know what more sorts of shit.

Joran says to the brothers: That’s not true, the only thing he (Joran’s father) said that if there’s no body there don’t have a case.

Aruban prosecutors are going forward with their prosecution of the three suspects with or without a body. There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s dead,” said Hans Mos, Aruba’s chief prosecutor.

Aruba’s chief prosecutor said Friday that there is enough evidence to prove Natalee Holloway is dead — even if the Alabama teenager’s remains are never found.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s dead,” said Hans Mos. “I think we have enough evidence to prove the girl is not alive anymore, even without a body.”

Mos further explained that Aruban law does not require a body to prove someone is dead “and any day that passes now is just more evidence that she is not alive anymore.”

Joran Van der Sloot to Stay in Custody for 8 more days in Natalee Holloway case

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (CNN) — A judge Monday granted the prosecution’s request to hold Joran van der Sloot for a total of 16 days “on the suspicion of manslaughter” in the case of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway.

Van der Sloot, 20, was arrested Wednesday in the Netherlands and taken back to Aruba, where he is a suspect in the disappearance of 18-year-old Holloway in May 2005.

Two other suspects, brothers Deepak Kalpoe, 24, and Satish Kalpoe, 21, were arrested in Aruba the same day as van der Sloot.

      Well…. that’s good for starters.

      I don’t quite understand their system so I guess

      the thing to do is to wait for a trial. These

      days are for interrogation, only, right?

      (Hope it works)

      Let’s hope they charge all three and add in Papa perp! Every time I see Taccopina or his cohort on TV professing Joran’s innocence (because they came to know him, spending time with him, a “sweet boy”) I wanna puke!
      Aruba, throw the book at all of them. Make it stick, send them away for a long time!!! Justice for Natalee…… accountability for their actions…… peace and closure for Beth & Dave.

      If Joe Tacopina is such an important part of Joran’s defense why is he still in the U.S. and not in Aruba with his Aruban attornies? Something tells me he has no idea what is going on in Aruba.

      PL-EEEz – How many times are you guys going to fall for this ****? This is another Aruban ploy and a good one to save face for the Dutch. Okay…Let’s call them in on “NO REAL NEW EVIDENCE” and we’ll change them and they will get off with no conviction because of ” LACK of EVIDANCE” and then guess what….it’s ALL OVER and we did our job and we’re off the hook.

      My Heart goes out to you suckers there is no justice left in the world least of all for a beautiful you woman just beginner her life to have it taken away so sadly.

      You may be right…

      We’re stuck between

      the Dutch and a Ditch.

      I don’t have any faith in Aruba…

      Not as long as the current Administration

      is in office. They made their choice on

      June 10. And, unless they have actually

      found a bone or something that proves that

      Natalee is dead, their going to have a hard

      time proving “matter of death”.

      Pray for Justice, but beware…

    6. Patti on November 27th, 2007 1:48 pm


      That should be “manner of death”

      But, you get my point.


      Justice for Natalee

      #4 Lisa, I think the same thing. If they were going to do something, they would have done it a long time ago. They have had the evidence.

    8. Richard on November 27th, 2007 6:46 pm

      All that we can do is wait to see what happens … and to keep up the pressure by continuing the “boycott Aruba” campaign.

      Great line Patti … stuck between the Dutch and a Ditch!

    9. da_wench on November 27th, 2007 7:29 pm

      #4 – I hope you are wrong, but I understand why you feel that way. Aruba has jerked us around for 2 1/2 years and it’s hard to believe in someone or something when they have done nothing by disappoint you in the past.

      #5 – Stuck between the Dutch and a Ditch – good one!

    10. Patti on November 27th, 2007 9:34 pm

      What I don’t understand is that in Aruban law, you cannot testify against yourself. In other words, if you confess to doing something and there is no evidence to prove what you did, you’re innocent.

      Why do they keep up with these interrogations if what they have is so damaging? They say they have these special technics they’re using, but so far no one is talking. Even if they did, what good would a confession be?

      Remember, Joran confessed before, supposedly, and it was thrown out on a technicality. I don’t understand why they didn’t use the information in his confession to convict him and just not enter the confession itself.

      I read Shango and he talked alot about the walls of the Palace being crooked. I think this is what he meant. The laws are written more for the criminal than for the people. Atleast, it appears that way to me.

      I know alot of people believe in this prosecutor, but he is from the same lot as the others. He may be a slick Willy type and be quick on the draw, but is his heart in the right place?

      Aruba, may be doing this just to make a little Christmas money from all the press visiting the island. I don’t hold out much hope for justice in Aruba, and was shocked that the Dutch just handed everything back and, virtually, left.

      It was my understanding that the Dutch were supposed to be investigating the corruption after the crime as much as the crime itself; but I don’t see any indication that any of that was done. Why didn’t they trace the money that was withdrawn and/or deposited into Paulus’ account. How rich can a Judge-in-Training be to pay off so many lawyers, public officials and gangsters?

      I think we’d make better investigators than many of them. Although we don’t know everything, because we have never been allowed to; and although we may have differences of opinions, we have a better understanding of this case than most people… besides, we’ve got the burning desire to have this case solved.


      Justice for Natalee


      Thanks for the compliments (Smiles)

      Patti, we don’t really know what the Dutch did or didn’t do, are or aren’t doing, have or haven’t done. Apparently nobody knew that the simultaneous arrests of J2K were coming … the Holloway Twittys have said that they were blindsided … so who can say? I certainly can’t.

      I don’t mind if they don’t play the celebrity media game that has corrupted American journalism.

      The proof of the matter is in the pudding, as the old adage says. Let’s see what finally comes of all this, and meanwhile keep our powder dry and our “Boycott Aruba” protest signs up in the air.

      By the way, we all remember that Karen Janssen also specifically said that a body was not required for prosecuting. But where did that get us?

      And kudos again for the comment “Stuck between the Dutch and a ditch”; we all remember that van der Sloot means “from the Ditch.”

      Yes, he and the son of a ditch. A Dutch ditch.
      And the witch.

      well Arube and Holland have a mixed relationship

      (they want our money, we want them to be fiscal responsible)

      Aruba doesn’t do taxes for the ppl who live there, they just want Holland to pay up and shut up.
