Joe Tacopina, the American defense attorney for Joran Van der Sloot, might be protesting a bit too much. We know he is a defense attorney who’s job it is to throw mud on the wall and hope something sticks; however, its rather comical that he has so much to say when accusing others who have not been accused of any crimes of doing illegal things or lying, yet when asked about the new incriminating evidence and the new recordings, Tacopina shuts up like a clam.
What is even more amazing is the contradictions with in the same breathe of air.
“The two things he said are just so inaccurate. First of all that initial statement that was rumored to be out there and that actually made it into one police report … its absolutely not true.” (Joe Tacopina)
First Joe Tacopina says that there are no new wiretap conversations between Joran and the Kalpoe brothers that post date 2005.
Then Joe Tacopina refuses to answer the question as to whether there are new recordings of any of the three after April 2007. Suddenly, he does not want to violate and Aruban rules. How convenient. However, didn’t Tacopina already violate Aruban prosecutor’s Hans Mos rules?
Joe Tacopina, you mean this statement that does not exist?
