Aruba Sinks to New Lows, Part II … Tourism-minister Edison Briesen that introduced them to Justice Minister Croes


This mornings article, ARUBA SINKS TO NEW LOW … Think This Isn’t Slander and Libel? … Daniel Young and Kelly Castillo Claim Natalee Holloway abused by stepfather Jug Twitty, would have been so long to write we have decided to break it up into numerous parts.

The question with this farce and smear campaign by Young and Castillo is who paid you to come forward now? Do not tell us no one! There have been far too many opportunists in this case and you two just landed at the top of the National Enquirer list.

(Daniel Young and Kelly Castillo, what Aruba passes off as investigators)

The idea that anyone in Aruba would consider Daniel Young and Kelly Castillo credible shows many revealing aspects of what how people in authority in Aruba will do any thing at all cost to protect tourism and smear tourists reputations. Why would two “mediums” with tin foil hat and moon bat theories become credible now. Why would they be given a forum like Aruba TV? What is even more startling and telling is how these two, investigators as the Amigoe likes to refer to them, came to meet any one of authority in Aruba. The Tourism Minister is introducing these two to the Minister of Justice. As we have always said, in Aruba … its tourism first at all cost.

Let’s face it, Minister Briesen would have done anything to stem the tide of Aruba’s faltering tourism as he hid under his desk dodging questions regarding Aruba’s freefall tourism numbers.Minister_Briesen

Not even Minister Croes, who at that time, two years ago, called them ‘Indian stories’.   It was Tourism-minister Edison Briesen that introduced them to Croes, because he thought that the information was important enough to be included in the judicial investigation.  Croes is of the opinion that now that the case against the suspects Joran and the brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe has brought no results, the Public Prosecution must also consider other scenarios.

So after all this time, after the powers that be in Aruba have done everything in their power to sabotage the case of missing Natalee Holloway, Rudy Croes now states that all scenarios have to be considered. How truly evil a soul do you have Minister Croes. For that matter, why don’t we investigate you Mr. Croes … people have accused you of being complicit in this crime.

Let this be a word of warning to all those who think that the Natalee Holloway story is insignificant and does not affect you. Many have scoffed at this story calling it “Missing Imagine having your child or you yourself you on vacation and “something bad happens”. Imagine that government officials of that island teem up with tourism to smear your name and your child’s reputation. Think it’s so far fetched? Think again … that is what happened in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.


We asked Jossy Mansur what his opinion was of Daniel Young and Kelly Castillo and the credibility of their accusations. As usual, Jossy Mansur was not at a loss for words. He too completely questions their credibility.

Honestly, I cannot waste my time with the two “spiritists” that came to Aruba and held a press conference to make what seems to me to be accusations they did not substantiate with any kind of proof. I hope that, if what they brought forward is a fabrication, Jug will initiate legal proceedings against them. I think Beth should too. But, all in all, nothing of what they said has made us change our conviction that the three ex-suspects know perfectly well what happened to Natalee.

There was no one else involved that we know of, or that has come forward to make any claims. And neither the prosecution nor the investigative team have brought forward any leads to the contrary! In the absence of that, we hold on to our stand that Natalee did not die a natural death, and that the three ex-suspects who are known to be the last persons to be with her when she was still alive, know what happened to her.  However, there is always a very small possibility that she may still be alive, at least until something of her is found to eliminate that hope completely.

If she is still alive (and that is our highest hope) she must have been found or identified a long time ago. With so much media attention, accompanied by so much police investigations here and in the U.S., and so much public interest, how can she have escaped the intense scrutiny, wherever she may be?

      Thats great Aruba bringing in these 2 morons.
      Joran, pimps, etc, know what happened to Natalee along with Paulus. Send those 2 back to their tin foil hats at the trailer park.

      They are no way credible Aruba.

    2. Carpe Noctem on January 19th, 2008 7:55 pm

      Hey Paulus,

      Here is who I think killed Natalee.

      Not the guy on the left, or the over the hill pu$$y in the middle!

      I think it was the toxic piece of human waste, all the way to the right.

      Oh BTW, I reviewed all the footage of Mr. P DeVries getting the wine thrown in his eyes
      by Paulus’ rapist murderer of a son, Joran Vandersloot , last week.

      Paulus is absolutely *laughing it up* as Mr. DeVries is rubbing his burning eyes.


    3. Carpe Noctem on January 19th, 2008 7:59 pm

      Justice 4 Nat and her family.

      Aruba is just as laughable in attack PR as they are in law enforcement. Send in the clowns.

      Well, Mr. Croes, why don’t you further study why no results were obtained. HINT… Straten, Dompig, Jacobs, YOU, Shippers, Cohen… Read Dompig’s statement.. every road they went down leads back to these 3,,, read Mos’s statement,, every road they went down leads back to these 3. He already threatened to shut Beth up.. that should bring action against him as is.. btw Croes,,, how’s your friend Paulus doing?

    6. Betsy on January 19th, 2008 9:21 pm

      Boycott Aruba, justice for Natalee!

      Paulus, you are a disgusting pig! Anita, you define pig. Joran, go jump off a bridge.

    7. dennisintn on January 19th, 2008 9:29 pm

      briesen brought the 2 clowns over, introduced them to croes, croes thinks they are viable sources, and briesen is “loaning” some touriist bureau employees to the a.l.e. to help with the investigation. and everybody is supposed to see these things as reason to hop right on down to aruba and spend their money and trust their families to the vagaries of “life on the happy island”. right, we’ll get right on that.

    8. JusticeforNatalee on January 19th, 2008 10:00 pm

      Hey, idiots in Aruba,

      Every time you hurt Natalee and her family in any way–every time you lie about them or attack them–you just turn more and more people against your island and you lose more tourists.

      Aruba lies, Aruba attacks, and then Aruba loses.

      Wake up, Aruba!

    9. LilPuma on January 19th, 2008 10:34 pm

      All avenues have been pursued and we’ve been told more than once that all roads go back to J2K. The FBI questioned Natalee’s classmates. ALE came to the U.S. and questioned some of them again, in the presence of FBI agents. Jug’s friends had to submit affidavits because ALE didn’t take their statements initially. As I’ve said many times, this case can’t be solved unless you investigate the investigators who covered up this crime. (And it made me physically ill to hear that Anita said the same thing on the Wine Throwing Talk Show.)

    10. Carpe Noctem on January 19th, 2008 11:28 pm

      Paulus Vandersloot laughing at De Vries

      shortly after his rapist/murderer of a son, Joran,

      tosses wine in Peter’s face and eyes on a

    12. minnesota dad on January 20th, 2008 12:29 am

      You know what….

      I have my own theory on what happened. Do you think Paulus and the rest of the crew would allow me to have a press conference in Aruba?


    13. mayan_moons on January 20th, 2008 12:30 am

      Yeah there is freedom of the press but how many times have we seen tabloid papers be sucessfully sued when they printed outright lies.

      What part of the US do these two clowns come from? Someone on the previous thread said that these clowns have joined the list of most hated in America and i ditto that statement.

      I do hope Beth & Jug look into filing a lawsuit against these POS and force them once and for all to PUT UP OR SHUT THE HELL UP!~

    14. Gabriel Leo on January 20th, 2008 12:38 am

      Aruba sinks to a new low? HAHA you got to be kidding me! You guys really deserve now a job at Comedy Central or maybe you should replace the writers who are on strike over there, and take their jobs over.
      If I do recall, these people are from your side, your country, your pair or known as US Citizens Right? and not Arubans. If they want to voice their opinions I see no problem with that, no matter what you want to say or slander about Aruba.
      If what they are saying is true, I don’t know and truly don’t care. I can say though that their story about Twitty arriving in the morning and not in the night is not true, because I personally know those who were with Twitty and company when they arrived that night.
      But about their other findings, can’t tell, but does make you think!
      Bottom line is that these are US Citizens voicing their findings and US citizens here on this blog don’t like that and now after wanting to tear up Aruba, want to try their luck and do so with them. Now that’s a shameful disgrace. Monkeys leaving menacing posts on Aruban websites ect, trying to scare us? It’s your “paisano’s” not ours. They appeared on local media, now if it appeared on your US media you should do what you do best, which is run to your computers and Bombard them with e-mails, and wine and complain to them of doing this not us! Hope this shows how disgusting your US-media can be (if it did appear on your media). I BET you must think it all must be a conspiracy, as you think the entire world is, let’s all RUN FOR COVER the Conspiracy is on the Rise!
      P.S. Mafia Mansur still keeps on getting the best of you here huh. I dare you to ask him if he thinks Aruban Government is behind and see what he answers, I surely want to HEAR HIM ADMIT IT!(I better don’t say much about him because I might not be posted like before by talking about your god, boehoe!)

    15. on January 20th, 2008 1:13 am

      Gabriel Leo: What an idiot! You didn’t see US media giving 10 seconds of time to these people. They had to travel to Aruba, not once, not even twice but three times on the Aruban dime to get any press time.

      Hey, Gabe…

      Can you explain the history of your island for the last two and a half years?!?!

      In case you haven’t noticed:

      Your POLICE protect the killing

      of INNOCENT people from all over the world…

      over and over and over and over and over



      Why don’t you talk about THAT?!?!?

      What’s wrong with you?



    19. JusticeforNatalee on January 20th, 2008 2:08 am

      You are a moron if you believe any of that trash about Natalee and Jug.

    20. Patti on January 20th, 2008 2:21 am

      It’s no wonder your government refuses to supply the Netherlands with your immigration records, while you have had over three years to try to complete the amount of U.S. Dollars you take in every year…

      Your NUMBERS don’t add up!


      F Aruba!

      WTH are you talking about gabe suggesting we’d not be critical of these con artist’s just because they are American? What an asinine thing to say. Being American doesn’t protect you from being held accountable for you’re actions and sometimes your inactions.

      It is just terrible how the Dutch always manage to get people out of prison and never in!

    28. LilPuma on January 20th, 2008 8:54 am

      Mafia Mansur? Have you looked at the owners and operators of the Excelsior Casino, where Joran was allowed to gamble underage. Where Joran met Natalee Holloway a few short hours before she disappeared? Maybe the Mansur family is the only reason Jossy can speak out about One Corrupt Vile Island without too much fear of ending up on the end of a rope with his hand in his pocket. Arubacide. How many other places are owned and operated by organized crime–besides Oduber’s office.

    29. Bob on January 20th, 2008 9:52 am

      And with this latest abomination intent and insult to the Twitty family, is it small wonder that ARUBA will never again take a place at the world table? No matter how hard those ARUBAN leaders try to portray that flea invested sand bar as a Happy Island, they have only earned the deserved “2008 Disgrace Award”. Congratulations.


    30. benh on January 20th, 2008 10:24 am

      Gabe,Any one who belives that sick story is beyond stupid.The people responsable for Natalees death live in Aruba,and we all know who they are,but it can not be proved due to your goverments help in the cover up.This cover up hasstained your country for ever before the home computer came along this would have been a short lived story but now we can all spread THE story of Natalee Holloways MURDER and the goverment COVER UP on a daily basis…God BLESS NATALEE and her FAMILY.

    31. Susan on January 20th, 2008 10:48 am

      Just goes to show that the poverty stricken, drug infested, third world lawless isle of Aruba is full of twits. Anyone who believes in “mediums” are in need of a psychiatric evaluation.

      Castillo and Young should be executed by a firing squad at sundown, no blindfold, no last meal.



    32. Betsy on January 20th, 2008 11:28 am

      Anita the “Butterball”:

      “Oh Paulus, I’m in the mood tonight. Let’s create new monsters together.”


      “Where did I put my 2×4? Darn, where is the 2×4? Anita, wait for me darling butterball, I’m trying to find the 2×4.”

    33. Miss-Underestimated on January 20th, 2008 11:38 am


      Yes Paulus was laughing when Peter was rubbing is eyes. How do you suppose Paulus acted when the boyz said soemthing bad happened to Natalee.

    34. mommytraveler on January 20th, 2008 11:46 am

      Is everyone in Aruba STUCK ON STUPID – or is it just me thinking they are?

    35. dennisintn on January 20th, 2008 12:52 pm

      #34, no ma’am, you are not alone in thinking that.
      but the tourist dept’s minister briesen is sending over some of his employees to the a.l.e. to help in this investigation. isn’t that thrilling news? it just gives you a warm inner glow thinking about how safe the happy island will be now. wait, that warm glow was indigestion, i must have accidentally swallowed some of that aruban swill.

    36. chris on January 20th, 2008 2:22 pm

      I don’t know if it’s possible, but wouldn’t it be great if Jug and Beth could sue the two fools and everyone involved who made it possible for them to come to $hit island.
      Also, why wouldn’t DeVries take any action? What better reason would he need to drag the Frankenstein monster into court.
      I could see where a couple of lawsuits would keep Natalee’s name alive and Aruba with fewer and fewer visitors. So much for wishful thinking.

    37. Para2legal on January 20th, 2008 3:14 pm

      Let me quote someone, “enough of the b.s.”
      Aruba has sunk to a new low.

    38. Maggie on January 20th, 2008 4:18 pm

      Gabriel Leo, there is noone here showing that story, because they are aware of the muliti-million dollar lawsuits they would face if they did. The fact that Aruba did air it speaks volume of the character of the people in charge in Aruba, showing what appears as falsified documents as fact.

      I certainly hope Jug and Beth and the lawyers really go after this group of people. Renfro and her group has been putting this kind of trash out for almost 3 years as fact.

      Did you see what happened to Dan Rather when he aired the false story about George Bush.. His career of 30 plus years at CBS..gone..

    39. Rocky on January 20th, 2008 4:53 pm

      Betsy 32, too funny!

      is the 2×4 to tie to his a$$ to keep from falling in?? hahahaha!

      BOYCOTT ARUBA!!!!!!!

      Any tourist shows in Seattle? I’d volunteer to assist with the boycott

    40. Betsy on January 21st, 2008 12:43 pm

      Hey Rocko did you see the size of Anita’s a$$ on TV? Next time she should sit where the interview tables can cover up what we know to be not one of her best features. At least she covered her “cellulite thigh arms” for the interview. Otherwise, Paulus might have been too worked up to cover for all Joran’s lies.

    41. Arubaanse on January 21st, 2008 2:26 pm

      My fellow Arubans always manage to do something stupid to embarress me.

    42. Aldolfo Angela on January 21st, 2008 10:52 pm

      Joran and Kalpoe brothers have Dutch Nationality. If they were Aruban (low classes to mid classes -like the most of us living on this island). They were already thrown in the jail and with no chance in getting out.

      I remember there famous saying “no body no case”. This comes from a higher teaching. And now a days the cops are not allow to apply the tactics to let them talk because of Amnesty Guidelines (a Dutch idea). Again a higher teaching knows that they can not apply this. That is why they say a lot of lies and choose not to talk when they can apply this.

      I sincerely hope they solve this case soon.

    43. Dolf on January 22nd, 2008 5:22 am

      weren’t those Kalpoe brothers Surinaams?

      and they have jails on Aruba..then why are all the criminals comming over here (with or without dope in their stomach)?

    44. Dolf on January 22nd, 2008 5:24 am

      #27Steven on January 20th, 2008 7:09 am
      It is just terrible how the Dutch always manage to get people out of prison and never in!

      yeah, damn shame that that innocent guy had to leave jail.

    45. Richard on January 22nd, 2008 12:42 pm

      On one point, I disagree with Jossy Mansur. He says it’s impossible for Natalee to still be alive, because she surely would have been located by now.

      We need only remember the case of Amy Bradley, who was kidnapped from a cruise ship in 1998 while it was docking at Curacao. There is good reason to believe that she still is alive, but despite several sightings (and in at least one case, she identified herself by name), her present whereabouts are not certain.

      Ditto with Shawn Hormbeck, the Missouri boy who was held captive for FIVE YEARS.

      Jossy’s initial argument was that Natalee couldn’t have been taken off the island alive … because he’d never heard of it happening before.

      Doesn’t convince me.

    46. Richard on January 22nd, 2008 12:43 pm

      Remember, too, that if she was/is in the custody or control of someone like a drug lord, then few people are going to take action to help her. It’s their own lives that would be at risk.

    47. Dolf on January 23rd, 2008 4:13 am

      Richard, I don’t believe that.
      Think drugslord are to smart to do it that way.
      They don’t really like media attention and I think that they wouldn’t grap a US citizen this way…they would be asking for a US respons

    48. AA on January 23rd, 2008 8:22 pm

      Surnaams, Dutch, it doesn’t matter.

      Where is “here” and please do not include drugs in this? Because drugs is a two way street. There are users and buyers. They are carrying it for someone to use, right.

      I am 100% against drugs.

      We have jails, but the Dutch laws are applied here and these laws are BAD (too little).

    49. Dolf on January 24th, 2008 3:58 am

      AA: Doesn’t matter wtf?

      btw: You have Buyers and Sellers.

      Dutch law could use a re-do at some points.

      Think our drug polici is ok, but they should legalize weed/ hash

      (yes, I did do drugs (xtc, acid, mushrooms) when partying, but I somehow matured out of it :( )
