Aruba Cooperating with American, Dutch, Antillean Governments on Drugs … What About Missing People and Crimes Against Tourists?


Another war on drug report from Aruba and One Happy Island and its continued drug smuggling and its related money laundering practices and criminal violence. Why is it that Aruba will supposedly cooperate with American, Dutch and Antillean governments when it comes to the “war of drugs” and money laundering but not when it comes to missing persons and crimes against tourists like in the case of Natalee Holloway?

According to American justice, drug smuggling and its related money laundering practices and criminal violence continue to be a threat for Aruba and the Neth.Antilles.

Extending the Judicial cooperation between the American, Dutch, Antillean, and Aruban governments can contribute to lowering that threat on the islands and also to a broader joint fight against the drug criminality in the Caribbean.

Man Sentenced in Aruba for Money Laundering 300,000 euros in Drug Money, Verdict is of Great Importance … Surely you Jest

Aruba more and more important as transshipment location for drugs (Amigoe: 3/5/08)

A huge amount of cocaine was intercepted on sea in February of 2007.  One huge catch can influence the statistics, but is not necessarily an indication for a certain tendency.

ORANJESTAD – Aruba functions to an increasing extent as a transshipment location for drugs that find their way via airplane or cruise ship to the United States and to a smaller extent, to Europe, states the International Narcotics Control Strategy Report for 2007 of the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs of the American State Department that was published last Saturday.  

Aruba was only mentioned as transshipment location in the 2006 report.  According to the Bureau’s available data in the first 10 months of 2007, 390 kilo cocaine and 10 kilo heroine was intercepted.

The 2005 report also mentioned the interception of marihuana and XTC-pills, but these are no longer mentioned in the 2006 and 2007 report.  An increasing use of xtc by the youth is observed in entertainment places.  The production of narcotics in Aruba is not enough to be mentioned in the report.  According to the 2007 report, the Aruban government is pursuing a ‘dynamic anti-drug policy’, in close cooperation with her regional and international partners.  

Aruban justice has arrested and convicted a number of middlemen that delivered drugs to couriers.  The report doesn’t mention details or numbers.  Neither does the report mention the number of American citizens that tried to smuggle kilograms of drugs to the United States.  

The 2006 and 2007 reports vaguely mentioned the expansion of the facilities for the Forward Operating Location (FOL) to use at the airport.  The FOL tries to locate drug transportation from the air with airplanes of the American Air Force and Customs Department.  The 2007 report doesn’t even mention that expansion or that it still exists.

According to American justice, drug smuggling and its related money laundering practices and criminal violence continue to be a threat for Aruba and the Neth.Antilles.

Extending the Judicial cooperation between the American, Dutch, Antillean, and Aruban governments can contribute to lowering that threat on the islands and also to a broader joint fight against the drug criminality in the Caribbean.

      with the chance of being cynical.

      its all about money everywhere

      and if its about humans, its usualy about our spending patern (or lack off)

      Why doesn’t Aruba remove the drug lords from the top of hill…the place where no one is allow to go. Shut down the helicopter landing pads, for beginners. Those that could do something about this won’t.

      Aruba is a mess. Illegal drugs, illegal drivers, illegal immigrants, is anyone there legal except for the native Arubans. Pretty soon they will be outnumbered.

      among other things he claims Joran offered him € 2.00,- to kill the guy who dumped miss. Holloway in the ocean.

      this was said in an interview with Aruban tv after 1 of the camera’s was switched off, P. van der Eem was under the impression that both camera’s were switched off when he said this.

      Patrick had better watch his back!
      Ifffff its true Beth surely could bring a criminal case against our favoriate pervert.

      PS Listened to Jensen..thanks EuRobert for the was really haeartwarming to hear the great welcome Beth got. I don’t speak Dutch but I can pick up bits here and there.

    9. katablog on March 6th, 2008 11:29 am

      Gee FL, if I could read or understand Dutch …. I can only make out the words that are similar to German.

    10. Richard on March 6th, 2008 11:37 am

      I have to say that something doesn’t smell right to me about these claims of Patrick.

      IF I understand correctly what is being said I haven’t seen the YouTube segments, but got a quick ‘briefing’ from someone who has), some three years after “the event,” this guy suddenly is demanding a payoff from Joran?

      And Joran is telling this guy who he happened to meet that he needs some cash to pay him off?

      It is at least as possible that Joran, having begun to tell Patrick his story, now is trying to con money off of him. That’s my suspicion.

      Why would someone who has been quiet about his role for three years suddenly start raising a stink?

      And even more … if Patrick got the info from Joran back in January, why in hell didn’t he pass this on to law enforcement already? (Assuming that he hasn’t.)

      All I have is a little bit of information about this claim … but I wonder about it. Let’s hope that we find out something more soon. This could be a big deal … or might be just another in the countless false leads we’ve seen.

    11. Richard on March 6th, 2008 11:41 am

      As for the topic of this thread, I’ve long suspected that the people (or animals, take your pick) who run Aruba find it very convenient to cooperate with our DEA … that way, they can make sure that the Americans apprehend their rival drug dealers, the “other guys,” all the while giving red-carpet treatment to their own.

      From whom they profit handsomely, I’m sure.
      And I suspect that a certain van der Scum family are among those cashing in.

      Makes a lot of sense to me … use the Americans to clean up your rivals, get them tossed in jail, making it easier for your “home team.”

    12. FL on March 6th, 2008 11:45 am

      #9 Katablog:
      In short:

      Patrick van der Eem, like Joran, was also filmed secretly.

      After an interview witrh a local TV station Patrick said a few interesting things.

      “I know who disposed the body of NH” said Patrick in Papiamento to the Aruban interviewer. “Joran asked me 2000 Euros to keep this man quiet” after the interview.

      Patrick claimed this operation was his idea. I planned everything with the hidden mics and plants. Hidden mics in plants and even tapping the internet connection.

      Patrick thinks he’ll become a millionair with his book. “I will make sure this whole family of Joran will fall very hard”. They can better move to Africa.

      The interview took place at the end of February afer the book Patrick wrote with an American reporter. The reporter of “Un Dia Den Bida” said”I had two cameras. After the interview I switched off one camera, but not the other one. Patrick did not know this but still ansered my questions”.

      The interview will be on air this evening on the Aruban TV. Patrick is back in the netherlands and was not available for an interview.

      A Dutch magazine (Revu) translated the movies as seen on YouTube with an transcript. The most important parts in bold.

      SCARED MONKEYS: Could we possibly get a temporary translator working with this site. We have followed this case for almost 3 years and something big could be transpiring but we can’t read or understand Dutch. There are articles and video’s that we would be interested to know what was being said. I know we have some Dutch friends that have helped but we can’t expect them to do it all. We’re missing out. Please help us out here.
      SM: Google translator does a pretty good job with Dutch and is free for anyone to use. (klaasend)

    14. kayjay on March 6th, 2008 12:35 pm

      Wonder how Mr. DeVreis feels about this little pearl of information…was Patrick holding out on him..sounds like it!!! This case is like a HUGE spider’s web…getting bigger and bigger with a very very large spider sitting in the middle! New game: NAME THE SPIDER!

    15. brie on March 6th, 2008 12:50 pm

      Joran was just trying to get some cash off of Patrick so he can gamble and drink more. The reason why he wouldn’t say Paulus did the dumping was to extract money from Patrick on down the road. Joran planning on how to con.

      We’re just not in touch with everything that is being said because we can’t read Dutch. We have got to get a translator.

    16. dennisintn on March 6th, 2008 1:22 pm

      dolf, the translations i’ve read said that jvds wanted patrick to give him 2,000 euros to pay off the dumper. i’m handicapped by only speaking the middle tennessee version of redneck english so have to count on y’all to interpret for me. please verify which of those two versions is true for me. (and others)

    17. brie on March 6th, 2008 2:06 pm

      I don’t think Patrick was holding out on Peter. They both know a lot more then what’s on those videos. Daury was located and question so that rules him out. Joran didn’t have time to run up and down the beach trying to find someone with a boat that he could trust, he already knew who had the boat and who he could call for help. Paulus, Koen, Sander and Freddy. Those are 4 people who wouldn’t tell. What I would like to know is where was the beach patrol when all this was going on. And what about cell phone records….we never got a report on that. Just real suspicious that Sander lost his cell phone that night.

    18. lost on March 6th, 2008 2:07 pm

      brie — there are very helpful monkeys in the forums and usually translations come pretty quickly. Try this link:

      Brie – you’re tooooo funny. You rip apart the dutch and paint them with this broad brush about how they are all perverts/etc…and then you want a dutch person to translate things for you?
      Unreal. What a joke.

    21. Richard on March 6th, 2008 4:05 pm

      I ask again … why would this person, after apparently being quiet for nearly three years, suddenly start demanding cash?

      And why would Joran think that this casual acquaintance named Patrick would be willing to lend him 2,000 euros, or even one red cent?

      My guess, as I say above … once Joran started telling Patrick his story, if he thought that Patrick was suitably impressed (and it would be consistent, given his cover story, to at least profess to be sympathetic), might be an easy mark.

      It’s also possible, of course, that this story is being made up by Patrick, for whatever reason.

      Let’s see what happens.

    22. Sherry on March 6th, 2008 4:06 pm

      I was thinking earlier today where does Joran get his money? If he has ever worked I havent heard about it. Also, it seems 2k would be easy for him to have..I mean think about it—how can a person live, not work, afford to be an alcoholic, drug addict, and have an addiction to gambling with no money?? AND I surely do not think his family has the kind of money to keep up his habits.

    23. Richard on March 6th, 2008 4:09 pm

      Dennisintn (#16) … Just wondering, and this is totally off topic, do you live anywhere near Adams, Tennessee? It’s a small town up near the Kentucky border.

      If you know about the town, and if you are a Tennessee history buff, you’ll probably immediately know why I’m asking!

    24. brie on March 6th, 2008 4:15 pm

      Thanks everyone for the help on translation.

      We don’t know if some of those things were said when Patrick thought he was off camera or not….he doesn’t have anything to hide…Anita and Paulus probably have a dirty hand in this….as usual…the family of devils!!! Who wants to discredit Patrick or Peter, except for the Sloots and those that played a part in the corruption. And/or those that are getting a payoff!!!

    25. brie on March 6th, 2008 4:38 pm

      Hans are you investigating the cell phone records…who did Joran call…or did he not call anyone because Natalee was at the house and so was Paulus, Freddy, Koen and Sander. Perhaps Sander was using his cell phone to communicate back and forth for the theft of the crab cage and what was taking place on the boat. However you want to look at it the phone was used in Natalee’s disappearance and the ALE has covered it up.

      Just who is going to serve justice there when those, as Joran refers to as masters to be, are corrupt and in charge.

    26. brie on March 6th, 2008 5:05 pm

      Why doesn’t Hans insist that our FBI come back to the island to investigate…it was Paulus who did the paper work and Dompig had to follow suit. The Dutch own the damn island so take possession and do something about it! These corrupt people on Aruba are running wild!!!!

      Brie #25: “who did Joran call…or did he not call anyone because Natalee was at the house and so was Paulus, Freddy, Koen and Sander.

      So let me gets this right…you are saying you have no idea if anyone called anyone, and you have no idea what person’s phone was being used to make calls you are not even sure were made, but (Brie says)”However you want to look at it the phone was used in Natalee’s disappearance and the ALE has covered it up.”

      Wow – I sure hope you are never on a jury in the US. If we go with that logic, who would be left to make my Starbucks Mocha? 95% of the population would be in jail.

      Aruba could solve this case right now if they wanted to. Bring back Stratten, push ugly Steve Croes on the alibi lie. Question piss in the pants mama boy Koen right here in Georgia which wasn’t allowed in Aruba. Our State Dept. isn’t following up either right here in the US. Question that lousy a@@ judge at Paulus house about why he stopped the search if nothing was to be found. Bartender. Surveillance in the motel rooms. Booti in the bushes peeping tom.

      think everybody understand what is ment with “silence him”

    45. jasper on March 7th, 2008 2:07 am

      This is heading in a completely different direction than expected. I have seen the tapes yesterday, but this one is more interesting :,1

      Short summary, for our non-Dutch reading friends. After the tape scandal of yesterday, Patrick van der Eem, a former criminal and still doing curious jobs, has THREATENED the journalist who made the secret tapes of him, in a phone call which has been broadcasted to the live audience. Patrick van der Eem is going to criminal court, and is looking forward for serious jail time.

      Now returning to the tapes themselfe, I have the fool transcript of the discussions, which are in Papiamento, but translated to Dutch (Sorry, in Dutch) :

      1. Patrick claims he knows Joran allready for MANY YEARS. Something that Joran claimed as well, but Patrick always said, we met in a casino in the Netherlands, a couple of months ago.

      2. Joran had asked Patrick for 2000 Euro to shut a guy up who was involved in the body dissapearance act.

      3. Patrick claims he KNOWS who the guy was who made Natalee´s body dissapear.

      4. Patrick claims he is going to become a millionaire.

      And @ Brie : I do not see any Joran supporters here. Fact with you is, you know sh*t about the Dutch legal system. “… don´t even try …” . I tell you again, this case will not hold in court. As I posted yesterday, the claim of Moskowics is the only claim which will stand a chance on behalf of Beth Twitty. 8She was in the netherlands by the way last week).

    46. Amsterdam 020 on March 7th, 2008 3:45 am

      Because of the secret taping, Patrick van de Eem threatened the tv reporter to kill him:,1

      Dutch link of course.

      Apparently, Patrick called the reporter after the show in which Patrick told the reporter that he has known Joran for many years and that he knows who threw the body of Natalee in the ocean. The reporter put him on speaker phone so the whole staff listenend in. The reporter is going to file a criminal complaint.

      It may not hold court, he may be shot in the head or slashed to death like Pit & Rene.

    57. Richard on March 7th, 2008 11:25 am

      The issue that concerns this board is not the character of Patrick. As Geraldo Rivera said, usually informants aren’t perfect human beings.

      Let’s not be diverted from our concern, though.

      Patrick and deVries captured Joran giving the same story in a series of tapes … something that completely erases his earlier statements about not knowing what happened to Natalee.

      He said that he helped an accomplice/accomplices put her body in a boat. That makes him a witness as well as a suspect. We’re told that under Dutch law, suspects can lie but witnesses cannot.

      Of course, it’s the Aruban interpretation of Dutch law that counts. And we’ve seen for the last three years what THAT is.

      A complete, brazen, and still-continuing cover-up as the Caribbean judges mumble to themselves.

      There’s no excuse for not supporting a boycott of Aruba. Some people in St. Louis will be demonstrating for that this weekend.

      No justice for Natalee … no tourists for Aruba.
