Beth Holloway and Peter R. De Vries with Geraldo Rivera


Beth: You know we’ve really tried to be so careful in Natalee’s investigation to stick with the known facts and it is a known fact that the only medical question that they did ask us, the only one question as far as medical issues, was does Natalee have a history of epilepsy or seizures and that was within the first 48 hours of her disappearance, so we just have to lay the facts out there and they kind of speak pretty loudly that if we hear that within 48 hours of her disappearance and we take it 2 1/2 years later and I think when I, not only just to hear Joran say this but I even see him imitate her body actions as she’s suffering, so I’m thinking you know, it’s hard not to put those two things together.

      I think Beth’s attornies are doing an excellent job of sectioning Beth’s public appearance statements. Since the confession tapes, she has focused on the Police questioning of Natalee’s medical history, and the obvious conclusion that Joran spilled the “choking-shaking” scenario within 48 hr of her disappearance, and they knoew it.

      Whether anyone has followed this story almost 3 years or not, it’s plain to anyone even hearing all this for the first time, that there was a massive if not ill-advised Police coverup. That needs to be continually broadcast over & over. It will sink in even to Aruban corrupt officials. This may now be an important smoking gun.

    2. Betsy on February 11th, 2008 8:30 am

      This article, translated to English by EuRobert, was buried further down in older posts. It’s important that everyone read it. In the article, Anita is always casting blame elsewhere for her son’t actions. She somewhat blames herself for appearing on Pauw & Witteman as if that was the catalyst for all this media attention for a GIRL MISSING THREE YEARS AGO!!!!!!Anita, you fat ass! Natalee matters even though your mosterous son robbed her of her life SO LONG AGO.

      Here the translation of the above mentioned AD article: Mother Joran: trying to live on.

      (Google transl. & EuRobert)

      Mother Joran: Trying to live on.”

      ORANJESTAD – The parents of Joran van der Sloot want to pick up the thread (of life) again. This mother, Anita van der Sloot, says to the AD. ,, We try to pick up life as best we can. We have more children, you know,”

      Anita van der Sloot looks hurt. When pruning in the garden she criticizes the media that last week paid a lot of attention to the broadcast of Peter R. De Vries.

      There their son under the eye of hidden cameras told what would have happened almost three years ago to the missing American girl Natalee Holloway on the beach of Aruba.

      ,, The media distort the facts and only one side of the story is told again and again. It is better not to say too much. Everything is still explained against our intentions,’’says the mother of Joran.

      Anita van der Sloot labels the broadcast of De Vries in which her son stated that his father illegally smuggled a mobile phone in the cell, as “terrible”. She is sorry that she, her husband and Joran went to the talk-show of Pauw and Witteman. ,, That was very stupid. We shouldn’t have done that.”

      After the broadcast Joran threw a glass of red wine in the face of Peter R. De Vries. Pictures of this were soon coming out.

      ‘Bon bende’

      It is a house that anyone on the island Aruban wants to have. The cheerful yellow-blue-red of the walls of Montanja 19 under the burning hot tropical Sun allows no sadness, it seems.

      In the cosy, messy quarter the family Van der Sloot already live some 20 years. Among locals, other Dutch and Americans. No snobbish enclave full of expats. No, the family is well known as social.., involved. They learned the native languages: Papiamento, participate in all kinds of things. Jorans brother was even more to admire in an exuberant carnival. ,, Life goes on.”

      The ‘confession’ of Joran van der Sloot at crime reporter Peter R. De Vries about the disappearance of Natalee Holloway and the subsequent questioning by police last Friday appears to have had little impact on the reputation of the family.

      The parents of Joran are ‘bon bende’(good gang / good people) says L. Da Silva in front of a Chinese-run supermarket. The men around him noisily suck on their local ‘Balashi’ and nodd in agreement.

      ,, Here on Aruba the people of course know the story a lot longer and better than in the Netherlands.”A friendly Anita van der Sloot is also on this Sunday convinced that the people in any case not blame them.

      ,, In the Netherlands the story has only much later become to play a real role and that gives a distorted picture.”Maybe sometimes she wants to explain it all. ,, But for the time being we want to say nothing because everything by the media will be told one-sided.”

      Thanks to whoever tapes these shows for YouTube. Again last night I was unable to watch. Interesting Newsweek article too. Apparently de Vries things the Kalpoe brothers are not involved. If he means not involved in the actual murder and disposal of Natalee’s body, I think that’s possible.

      But if he means “innocent”, I disagree. I think that Joran HAD to tell Deepak something the next night if not before. How would Deepak know the things he did (the girl is dead, your own father, you’ll get 15 years if they find the chit on that girl). It’s just strange that Deepak would run around with Joran that night after Natalee has been discovered missing.

      The meetings with Paulus I can understand because Deepak probably saw that something was in this for him. I still believe Paulus had something to do with the 1/2 ownership in the Internet Cafe.

      What I can’t explain is why Deepak hasn’t given it all up after spending some time in jail. He did immediately tell the guard that he was involved in their frame up.

      Surely Deepak understands by now that Paulus doesn’t have near enough money to buy his silence – certainly not the money that Deepak could make by telling everything he knows to either DeVries or to several US news media outlets. It will be interesting to see Deepak’s lawyers next move after the Dr. Phil case ends (which I think will be soon since they apparently can’t produce the documents the judge is demanding). It’s unfortunately that his lawyers will take a bunch with whatever deal they swing next.

      I feel quite certain that Deepak has enough to at least confirm Joran’s DeVries Confession. Certainly he seems to have some things on Paulus that would capture the world’s attention. What else do you have Deepak?

    4. katablog on February 11th, 2008 8:47 am

      I should add that I also think Deepak knows that Natalee was slipped a drug. That would be very helpful information to investigators. Perhaps Deepak thinks his fore-knowledge will also get him and Satish in trouble?

      If not, Deepak and or Satish have to be guilty of something that they remain silent. Wish we could convince them that someone can get them expert legal help if they simply spill the beans.

    5. katablog on February 11th, 2008 9:16 am

      wah, wah, wah. Want some cheese with that wine? Guess even anita doesn’t get it: it’s about Natalee!

      Yeah Anita we are just too stupid when we believe our lying eyes and ears. Sure we believe there is an explanation. It’s just all distorted, umm humm.

      Give me a break!

    6. downloadingdaddy on February 11th, 2008 9:25 am

      Unbeleivable, All the media did is show a tape of what her son said and she is calling them one-sided. Anita is blaming the press for what her son said. I can’t beleive what comes out of the van der sloots mouths.

    7. brie on February 11th, 2008 9:34 am

      I don’t care much for Geraldo, I think he was really getting on Peters nerves…so who cares how much Patrick was paid….it was worth every cent!

      Paulus sneaking the cell phone to Joran, I’m sure that wasn’t difficult since he’s on the prison committee and probably paid a guard….Joran was maybe never heard on the cell phone because he used text messaging.

      Speaking of cell phones, Paulus lost his and so did Sander all at the same time….the night Natalee disappeared…

    8. Diane on February 11th, 2008 9:35 am

      Mother Dearest Anita – WAKE UP & SMELL THE COFFEE – Your son & husband are the scum of the earth…. What do you think your hubby was doing sitting next to Natalee at the Casino while you were still in Holland??? Hmm, let me guess, he picked natalee out and Joran took over to get her out of the casino so Papa could have some fun too…

    9. brie on February 11th, 2008 9:50 am

      I know Beth had to see more of the tapes then us and I’m glad we didn’t see Joran imitating Natalee’s seizures….so bring Joran on over to the US, I’m sure our FBI can take care of things…Joran would more than likely be tried as an adult and his prison sentence would be much longer than in Aruba…I wonder if the Kalpoes would need to come as witness…we also have the Mountain Brooke students who said they would testify but only in the US….and we also have Sander here…maybe more young American tourists who visited Aruba and was raped by Joran might come forward…

    10. Diane on February 11th, 2008 9:52 am

      ABC did show the part of Joran imitating Natalee’s shaking of seizures. Maybe there was more than just that.

    11. Betsy on February 11th, 2008 9:56 am

      Brie, Geraldo is an attorney himself and I think he was only playing devil’s advocate. 40K is not a lot for 60 mo. work and especially since he had day/night work.

      It matters a lot how much he was paid. If Peter had given him a few million, for example, it would call into question Patrick’s motive and then perhaps people would say there must have been entrapment etc. Millions is a lot of motivation. 40K for 6 mo. is very reasonable, if not low. It certainly speaks to Patrick’s motivation as a father wanting to get the goods on Joran.

      As for Anita, it is really pathetic, to say the least. There is a lot of information to be gleened from her brief statments. Three years ago for one girl comes to mind. It’s as if she sees no more value due to the fact that her son only killed one person and for the fact that it was so long ago.

      The part where she claims going on Pauw & Witteman was a mistake caught my eye as well. Joran’s crimes against Natalee pre-date their TV appearance by years and yet she blames all this on making a mistake going on the show. Did she think Peter was so mad about the wine that it motivated him to catch her darling Joran?

      Anita, my friend, the mistake was made by your son and his friends once he made the decision to drug, rape and murder an innocent girl. And, for once can we say her name instead of “the girl?”

      NATALEE HOLLOWAY is her name. She was a human being who deserved to have a life that your son the monster stole from her for his own sick sexual pleasures. Live with it!

    12. brie on February 11th, 2008 10:09 am

      #10…Diane, yeah I saw that but I think what Beth saw was much more into detail…Joran just showed a little shaking…a seizure is much, much worse…my brother-in-law had a cancerous brain tumor and I saw him when he had his seizures…nothing you want to see…believe me. How hard it must of been for Beth to view those tapes…everything Joran did and said is just beyond…as Dave said, words cannot even describe it…

    13. brie on February 11th, 2008 10:14 am

      Betsy….I guess your right about the money, a million would of been questionable…I was just looking at what Geraldo said and then Peter was put in the spot to defend it…

    14. brie on February 11th, 2008 10:32 am

      Anita keeps talking and some bad things could happen around the Sloot compound…she’s just making things worse, the island does want them anyway, so you better put a sock in it, actually several….

      On second thought, hmmmm, maybe just go on irritating and annoying those that want to kick you off the island…typical of the Sloot’s, bring it on yourself…

    15. Carpe Noctem on February 11th, 2008 11:00 am

      When Anita Van der sloot wants to

      feed the media stuff again… she needs

      to hoist herself off the mighty copious

      petard that ol’ broad has worked up over

      the years… & watch this clip of her demon spawn




    16. Miss-Underestimated on February 11th, 2008 11:12 am

      Didn’t Deepak say he picked up Joran at 2 different times?

      What about the claim that “something bad happened to Natalee”?

      I think if I had kids in Anita’s classes I would ask they be put with another teacher. I think Anita has been doing too much ABSTRACT art.

    17. LilPuma on February 11th, 2008 11:24 am

      O’Reilly is going to do a segment on the DeVries’ tapes tonight, according to a preview on Fox News this morning. I wonder if he’ll have his body language person on.

      I still think the Kalpoes were involved in the drugging/raping part. Even if they were only there when Joran did the crime, they’re culpable. Well, maybe not under Aruban law. I’ve always believed they booked when Natalee didn’t come to and someone else came to help Joran.

      Anita is in denial. Joran has had several opportunities to get his side of the story out there in the U.S. and Netherlands. She had a lengthy interview with Kimberly Guilfoyle. Joe Tacopina is on tv regularly saying there’s no evidence, false accusations, yada yada. Still, she says the media portrays it in a one-sided manner. She can’t understand why we think her son is guilty because she can’t face what he really is. That’s how Joran has gotten away with so much in his life. Like many in Aruba, they thought the media coverage and their problems would go away. They want to dismiss it like they did Max DeVries, Amy Bradley and Bud Larsen. Not going to happen this time, Anita.

    18. JusticeforNatalee on February 11th, 2008 11:41 am

      “We have more children, you know.” AVDS
      And Anita, that’s why (1 reason) you need to wake up and see Joran for what he is. Stop making excuses; stop coddling.

      The whole world can see!
      Anita, why can’t you?
      Joran deserves a prison sentence
      or mental institution sentence.

      You DO have other children, Anita. They need to see that life has consequences when you COMMIT CRIMES. With Joran in jail or a mental institution, you will then be able to:


    19. Richard on February 11th, 2008 11:42 am

      As for Anita van der Scum, what else CAN she say? It seems obvious that nobody in that family has a shred of decency … and she’ll continue to whine in her fantasy world about the way Joran is mistreated (hey, lady, he said what he said under no duress). She isn’t worth spitting on.

      And for the Kalpoes … seems to me there’s one and only one reason that PvdScum paid for their lawyer at first. And that isn’t because he’s a decent concerned person.

      He wanted to make sure that he was in control of their defense … the person who pays the bills makes the calls and runs things.

      Why would he do that if they were innocent?

      I don’t know how much of Joran’s confession we can rely on, but I’m certain that the Kalpoes were involved in assaulting Natalee, if not disposing of the body.

      I’m also wondering if it’s the best thing now for Beth to go on TV shows with the likes of Geraldo Rivera. My idea is that she ought to … well, be a bit more selective. I can’t imagine that anyone takes the likes of Rivera seriously.

      It’s up to her, of course, and we’ll continue to support her and the family until we get answers and justice for Natalee.

    20. JusticeforNatalee on February 11th, 2008 11:46 am

      By the way, Anita, BETH has other children, too.

      Ask Matt Holloway how it feels to lose his sister and to watch the killer roam free!

      sound familiar ???

    22. Michael on February 11th, 2008 11:48 am

      I think Anita is just being naive and doesn’t know what her husband and son have done (she wasn’t on Aruba). I think it’s normal for a mother to protect her son. She’s blind for the facts. Maybe Anita is the key to it all if she finally realizes what they have done. She could be the one that starts to talk than. She is not that strong of a person as Paulus and Joran.

    23. Joran is a Terrorist on February 11th, 2008 11:49 am

      for what ??

      because someone called them names??

      try again idiots, you told so many stories that were meant to throw off the investigation, or did you forget about that little fact?

    26. Richard on February 11th, 2008 12:00 pm

      My point in the comment above being: at this stage, I don’t think Beth really NEEDS to be each and every TV show. I could be wrong.

      Rivera does make a good point here, though:

      Informants generally aren’t priests or rabbis, they tend to be people with colourful pasts….

      And I can see Joran with his own criminal streak looking up to someone who has a little shadiness in the background. He gained his trust, Joran starts talking because no one can make your lips move and say those words if you’re not saying them.

    27. Deetch on February 11th, 2008 12:04 pm

      Anita is married to a murderer, her son is a rapist and psychopath.

      To say she is in denial is an understatement.

    28. MikefrMd on February 11th, 2008 12:14 pm


      Thats kind of a double edged sword I think….does she go full bore and get all the press she can while she can to get action or back off a bit, and we know what ALE does when you back off….nothing.

    29. Miss-Underestimated on February 11th, 2008 1:02 pm

      If I recall, wasn’t it Satish who saw the “ghost of the GIRL” when he was in lock up in prison?

      Whats with that? Why’d he even think about Natalee being a ghost?

      All liars, every single one of them. Anita why’d your camera go missing?

    30. Miss-Underestimated on February 11th, 2008 1:07 pm

      Why would homocide, murder, premeditated murder or manslaughter be mentioned so early in the case. Aruba said it did not have the body of Natalee?????

      Lying stinking pigs….

    31. Crimson on February 11th, 2008 1:29 pm

      “The media distort the facts and only one side of the story is told again and again…’’says the mother of Joran.
      WTF?!? How is this only one sided. The story that is being reported and aired over and over is the one told by her own evil spawn. It is all in his own words, from his own mouth, bragging about his exploits. Though it may be peppered with lies, there has to be some truth to it. Joran is (in his own mind) so much smarter than ‘stupid’ Aruba, ‘stupid’ ALE and the ‘stupid’ Kalpoes. I cannot believe Anita is so blind to this, still believing her little sporter is the epitome of perfection. She needs to wake up and realize, before the other two hellions become like the brother the family has put on a pedestal. WAKE UP ANITA, Open your eyes and other senses… see and smell the pile of bullsh** that has piled around you for 3 years.

      Anita, this one is for YOU:

      saw another psychiatrist
      he said on dutch talk tv network Het Gesprek last tuesday something along the lines:

      “whether it is a crime or not by law he couldn’t say but Joran is sick in his head. he will never recover. should be put away forever in mental hospital. he has no conscience and is self-obsessed.”

    33. txchic on February 11th, 2008 3:30 pm

      i’ve been waiting for some one to point out that the advise to joran given by his accomplice sounded like his father.
      however, with the additional fact that the holloway/twitty’s were asked several times about epilepsy, i’m wondering if the accomplice could have been joran’s godfather?

      What we have here is a bunch of simple minded people clutching desperatly to the last threads of the tangle web they have woven. Clinging for their lives to try and hand on to their wolrd as they once knew it. They are all in complete denial about any responsibility on their part(s).

      Anita can’t bear to face the fact that both her husband and son are preditors and find drugging tourist for sex a sport and Natalee is just collateral damage. As a woman one would think she would find this appalling but after all it keeps Paulus from pestering her for his pleasure so what the heck party on boys and don’t get caught…ooops

      Joran clearly is the Ted Bundy “Becoming” for the new millinium this guy could have been the worlds next great serial killer except we are watching him now. We are fortunate that he was caught in the early stages of his development or there is no doubt in my mind there would have been hundreds of young girls lost to this sicko.

      Paulus now there is a man for you wow wow wow. Obiviously he has aquired a position in the drug cartel and legal system of the Golden Triangle enough to keep him safe for now. But what type of “MAN” helps his son to beat the system by breaking the rules teaching him to lie, cheat and cover up murder. I know its super “Dutch Dad” remember son, “Nno body… No crime” you are safe this time…but be more careful next time..

      Denial they are all in some hypnotic denial grasping at their little lives were they ruled the roost on a little island…why don’t you guys come out and play with the big boys ooooh yhea that would mean you would have to play by our rules not yours…well in the end you will have to play by Gods rules and that is something you can never lie your way out of….

      The Dutch Government is to busy counting their money from the drug business they run…a murdered girl is not high up on their agenda considering they make money off of slave trade too and it was one of their cartels very own that committed the murder… so cover it up. It will go away or we can just drag this out till everyone involved is dead..

      Read the Monster of Montanya the Sweaty the Elder’s police statement. He asked questions the night BHT drove to the HI looking for Nat. He was told that the only functioning camera was in the hotel lobby.

      He is the one that provide that lie/alibi later that the three used in their police statements!

      Monster of Montanya the Younger – you could jump out in front of moving traffic!

    41. txchic on February 12th, 2008 2:55 pm

      one things for certain… the dutch government CAN NEVER accept that the marijuana caused joran to lie.
      because pot’s legal there, it would open up a whole can of worms. imagine all the criminals who would use pot as a defense!

      There must have been more at the “party” of her disappearance than we could imagine. PVS must be the high priest of some satanic cult and Joran his successor. Those people went in down there, Godless, clueless, and wicked and took over the island with their filth and nose thumbing at the law. Jack Blue

    44. jack blue on February 16th, 2008 11:19 am

      One of the sorry judges was stationed in the higher court of appeals in case the prosecutor appealed decisions in order for prosecution. He blocked it there, I am thinking. One blocked in the lower courts and one stationed in the higher appeals court. They are into some bad stuff, those people, worse probably than we can imagine.

      I hope this website can initiate a BOYCOTT ARUBA campaign.

      Let’s make their government feel that pain and lets all send a message that we will never forget this poor girl and her family.

      Corruption is deeply ingrained in this little country. So let’s hit them in the pockets even though that will never change what happened.
