ORANJESTAD – Joran van der Sloot has spend the past week internally in a psychiatric Institute in the Netherlands. This was confirmed recently by his close family.
The motive of this was because Joran had flipped and wasn’t himself anymore. It therefore was necessary that he spend time internally and was given treatment necessary for a better health. This news did not come as a surprise here, to see the inner state van der Sloot was in and the way he was acting by which he involved himself in the case of Natalee Holloway.
A youngster of his age, getting so much negative attention will crack any minute. Comments one can hear on the news here, that this did not come as a surprise. In the past his family wanted to give psychiatric attention because of his bothersome actions within the family. There have been several attempts to have him undergoing treatment of a psychiatrist.
But in all instances Joran denied this and said he did not feel he needed a psychiatrist to help him with his alleged problems.
He answered that to do that he had decided to write a 351 pages counting book, titled “De zaak Holloway”, which he produced with the help of a female Dutch journalist. For Joran van der Sloot, the motive for this was it being a form of therapy, to make it possible for him to deal with all the things that had happened inside since the day since he met with Natalee Holloway 3 years ago.
The story has also been picked up by several Dutch papers that appear to be using BonDia as their source. In the Dutch articles Joran’s family is denying it:
If true, is it a strategy by his defense team to keep his mouth shut?
Or is it a ploy to keep him from being prosecuted?
If false, why is BonDia spreading false rumors? We will watch and update as the truth comes out.
UPDATE I: As of this afternoon no verification one way or the other from any “reliable” sources. The only source reporting it is BonDia and if not true, I hope they print a retraction.
UPDATE II: Reaction from Joran’s attorney in the Netherlands as reported in Dutch news
