ORANJESTAD, Aruba —
A judge has ordered the release of a Dutch suspect who was re-arrested last month in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway, the Aruba prosecutors’ office said Friday.
The judge called for Joran van der Sloot, 20, to be freed Friday afternoon, according to John Pauly, a communications consultant for Aruba’s prosecutors’ office. Details of the ruling were not immediately available and a news conference was scheduled for later Friday.
Van der Sloot was arrested Nov. 21 along with two other suspects, Surinamese brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, who were released from jail on Saturday after a judge found the evidence was not strong enough to continue holding them.
The three men were the last people known to see Holloway alive before she vanished in May 2005 but have denied any role in her disappearance.
UPDATE III: So Joran is released from custody and is free to go back to the Netherlands and finish his exams.
Natalee Ann Holloway would be in her 3rd year of college, what about her rights? Aruba thinks it’s over but it’s not, it’s just begun. The inept and corrupt investigation and subsequent coverup has sealed Aruba’s fate. It will always be known as a destination where tourism dollars are more important than a young girls life:
