Joran Van der Sloot: “I think that I would not have made it in the United States.” Joran, That’s Because there would be No Cover Up
Joran Van der Sloot continues to taunt the family of Natalee Holloway and shove it in the face of America of what he got away with. Who would really want to go to ARUBA that would allow this to happen?
Joran Van der Sloot may have said the first truthful words from his mouth since Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba over 2 1/2 years ago, “I think that I would not have made it in the United States.” Joran, that is because this crime would have been investigated like every other missing persons case and there would have been no cover up to protect you. Like every other missing persons case in the US where the suspect last seen with the victim is guilty.
Yes, this case would have been much different in the US; however, you will always be known for what you did no matter the preferential treatment that you were provided. Also, Aruba will always be known as the place where Natalee Holloway went missing and was killed, while being provided no justice by Aruban officials. Aruba should be ashamed of itself. You purposely botched the investigation and then botched the prosecution.
Yes Joran, you can thank your lucky stars that you had dady’s friends help. However, that does not change the fact that you have a much more important day of reckoning and judgement ahead that will make all this pale in comparison.

ORANJESTAD – Both lawyers had assured that after days of isolation, Joran van der Sloot would not want to say one word to the media. Especially his parents are concerned. On Friday afternoon, a few hours after his release, while walking back home from a supermarket in Noord with his younger brother, he was still willing to give a first reaction. People in the supermarket have already been whispering: “he’s back”, “What has he endured”, and “It’s such a nice family”. He doesn’t seem to be worried to walk over the street. “I think that I would not have made it in the United States.”
It’s obvious that the 20-year old young man, who is still on Justice’s list of suspects, has not got over the adventure of the past days yet. He has been detained for 15 days, and most of the time in isolation. “I was in a cell that could hold 15 men, but I was alone. I was allowed kick a ball so now and then and they indeed gave me the Bible. I would have preferred contact with others.”
The interrogations were heavy. “It’s not that they bothered me all the time, but every time I was interrogated, it was long. I didn’t have anything to tell them. I have already told them everything once and I was silent till the last minute.”
The arrest in his dorm in Arnhem was a complete surprise. He planned to move to Amsterdam, due to the location of his school. He hadn’t planned to go to Aruba for Christmas. “I really thought that it was over; that one day I would perhaps have to go to Aruba for the closing of the case. But I have never thought that I would be arrested again in the Netherlands. It turns out that they have nothing new here. I still do not understand what they wanted.”
Van der Sloot hates the fact that he had to miss part of his studies. He wants to go back soon. He’s not sure how long he’s going to stay on the island. “I’ll spend some time with my parents. Despite everything, Aruba is a special place. I’m going to take a plunge in the swimming pool right now.”
He will not get in contact with the brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe that were released a few days earlier. The friendship seems to have cooled off ‘for years’ already. Yet another effect of the case, agrees Van der Sloot.
According to rumours in the media, Van der Sloot has taken a plane to the United States yesterday evening. The journalists concluded this from his presence at the airport. Nothing is further from the truth. He was there to see his American lawyer off. He will stay for the time being in Aruba.
