Aruba and the AHATA Suing Greta Van Susteren for Slanderous Statements about Aruban Tourism & Natalee Holloway Investigation
ARUBA … STUCK ON STUPID
ARUBA SUING GRETA VAN SUSTEREN AND OTHER MEDIA OUTLETS FOR SLANDEROUS ABOUT ARUBAN TOURISM INDUSTRY AND THE NATALEE HOLLOWAY INVESTIGATION.
“They are threatening to bring legal proceedings if we don’t stop our false and misleading and malicious rhetoric.”
Greta Van Susteren’s response to the idiotic and nonsensical letter from an American attorney threatening the law suit was … “BRING IT ON”.
Greta says, “bring it on, sue me please, I want to get all these people under oath, I would love it”. The panel jokes, but Greta reinforces she wants them to sue her. She could depose police, it would be a field day. Panel member says this was about as well thought out as the investigation was.
In what can only be just another example of the ridiculous, pathetic and inept conduct that Aruba has provided to the world as they have dealt with the disappearance and investigation of Natalee Holloway, Aruba continues to be stuck on stupid. So Aruba and the AHATA wants to sue people for their First Amendment Rights? Aruba, you may be a Banana Republic where people are afraid to voice their opinions and discuss the truth for fear of reprisal. In America … WE THE PEOPLE are not.
How ignorant could these Aruban officials continue to be and the AHATA? They are spending money to threaten law suits against the American media, who will in turn provide Aruba with some of the worst PR imaginable. WHO DO THESE PEOPLE CONSULT WITH?
UPDATE I: Excerpts from Greta’s On the Record with some of the most comical responses from Greta and her panel in what only shows how much of a joke that Aruba has made of such a serious situation as a missing and presumed deceased, Natalee Holloway.
The first thing we need to do if file something against this ignorant, incompetent lawyer who would send a letter. You cannot defame and sue a country. This lawyer should have his bar card re … Even you on behalf of this company this country … get real. (Ted Williams)
My response to this Ted is “bring it on”. Will you please sue me. Sue me right now. I will waive all requirements of service. I want to get all these people under oath and depositions. Because I would love it. (Greta)
I am going to resign from the practice of law because I feel like an idiot that I even share the same membership as this guy. (Bernie Grim)
If you are sued you can talk about it even more. You know this law suit is about as well thought out as their investigation was. Or this threatened law suit. How are they going to prove damages, number 1? Damages can’t be speculative. (Michael Cardoza)
It may now go down because he has now refreshed in the public memory that they couldn’t find Natalee Holloway in Aruba and so now he may have hurt tourism in that country by this stupid letter. (Ted Williams)
UPDATE II: It Looks Like Aruba (AHATA) Will Have to Sue Former Spokesman Steve Cohen and Joran Van der Sloot Attorney Joe Tacopina as Well
If the AHATA wants to sue media outlets in a pathetic attempt to try and silence “Freedom of Speech”, it would appear that they will have to sue former Aruban government spokesman Steve Cohen and present Joran Van der Sloot attorney Joe Tacopina. Both have also made, according to Aruba’s definition, slanderous comments against Aruban tourism and the Natalee Holloway investigation.
Watch the Court TV video from 12–23–05 with Steve Cohen, Joe Tacopina and myself. It seems that Cohen agrees with my point that they investigation was botched from the outset … how slanderous!
