Aruba: Justice Minister Rudy Croes & Lawyer Hendrik Croes Given a Rap over the Knuckles


Aruban Justice Minister was given a rap across the knuckles for his handling of the situation with procurator general Theresa Croes-Fernandes Pedra. If this is how they treat their own, imagine how outsiders are dealt with?

Even though the PG has lost her case, the judge questioned the minister’s way of handling as well as that of his brother and lawyer Hendrik.  The minister has not complied with the instructions of the verdict of November 22, 2007 …

PG must continue being paid for as long as she does not resign; Theresa Croes-Fernandes Pedra (Amigoe: May 22, 2008)

ORANJESTAD – Justice-minister Rudy Croes and lawyer Hendrik Croes were given a rap over the knuckles in the lawsuit instituted by procurator general Theresa Croes-Fernandes Pedra against the minister.

Even though the PG has lost her case, the judge questioned the minister’s way of handling as well as that of his brother and lawyer Hendrik.  The minister has not complied with the instructions of the verdict of November 22, 2007 and that is the reason why the PG has decided to institute another lawsuit, requesting the Court to force the minister to follow these instructions.  This case was down for hearing in January and the judge gave verdict on February 1.  The judge referred to this in his evaluation.

The judge pointed out that the keynote of the law is that same as other bodies, the government bodies must follow the decisions of the judge.  He also said that this is the so many time that the minister of Justice does not take a position on the PG’s first request of March 15, 2007.  This does not only apply to the Justice-minister’s decision of December 7, 2007, but also that during the hearing, his lawyer was constantly bringing something else to the fore.  

He indicated that on January 6, 2007, the lawyer of the minister had brought up another law that he had ‘discovered’ and would relate to salary settlement of the PG.  The judge observed that nothing was mentioned in the minister’s decision of December 7, 2007 or in the answer on the appeal of the PG.  From this the judge draws the conclusion that the minister is not at all planning to comply with the PG’s request.  

The judge shows with this decision that the PG must continue receiving her salary for as long as she does not resign.  Croes-Fernandes Pedra indicated in the courtroom that she won’t resign as long as there is no clarity about her pension.  The judge is also of the opinion that the PG does not need to go to work.  She can stay home pending her pension scheme.

      Any news at all from or about Tim Miller? One wonders what kind of a rabbit he might be ready to pull out of his hat ….

      But also … we all remember Aruba’s penchant to do something when it thought that Americans weren’t paying attention. Let’s keep our minds clear and our powder dry this long weekend!

      Everyone, please be careful on the roads. You don’t need a traffic ticket if you’re going somewhere … the price of gas is bad enough.

      This from the article:

      “The judge is also of the opinion that the PG does not need to go to work. She can stay home pending her pension scheme.”

      Excellent advice. I think that everyone in Aruba’s government and law enforcement should do the same thing. After all, you accomplish nothing in your offices … nothing honest.

    6. caesu on May 23rd, 2008 5:56 pm

      so they have been paying two PGs now for a year.

      Croes-Fernandes while she sits at home (she in fact on strike for more salary – because she doesn’t like to earn less than the PG of the Antilles)

      and they are paying the acting PG Nico Jörg.
      to be replaced by controversial Dato Steenhuis from july until december.

      in the meantime nothing gets done.
      and the Croes brothers ignore the ruling of the judge.

      and the OM is overspending its budget due to promoting employees to higher positions without approval of the parliament.

      Translation: Dutch » English
      ORANJESTAD – Both the deployment of a burgerinfiltrant as an undercover agent was not legally possible because “the conditions” that Patrick van der Eem late last year claimed to have cooperated. So says the Dutch Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin in response to questions from the Permanent Kamercommissie Justice on the Dutch acting in the Holloway case.


      The Minister for answering the questions from the Kamercommissie also shows that Van der Eem not as burgerinfiltrant could be deployed. This is only possible if there is a criminal group of persons suspected of crimes which are planned or committed by the burgerinfiltrant would participate. In the Holloway case it was not apparent, says Hirsch Ballin.

      Even the deployment of an undercover agent, who by Van der Eem by Joran could have been introduced, was in breach of the Dutch law. This again because of the (financial) condition that Van der Eem in advance demanded by the Dutch authorities. “Apart from that state has no way to determine that the release of the accused for such a totally unknown person to any outcome would have resulted,” said the Dutch Minister of Justice.


      Just as I suspected! Patrick Van der eem was a total set up & sham.

      That booger!

      Dat no good dirty hiney wine kinda BURGER INFILTRANT acting feller.


      Do to the conditions that Van der eem REQUESTED IN ADVANCE from Dutch authorities, THEY CANNOT do anything with the tapes. Knowing Dutch Law, and requesting things that would destroy any prosecution possibilities vis à vis a legal technicality… who would that have the hallmarks of?

      Could it be, oh, I don’t know…. PAUL-A$$$$$$ Van der DORKKKKKK? Yesssss.

      What lie number was that? The last logged lie was Hans Mos bringing in the boys to jail
      on no evidence whatsoever, and ruining the Holloway’s 2007 Thanksgiving and Christmas
      by letting the filthy cockroaches go!!!!!!


      It is in Pat Van der eem’s GENERALLL DIRECTION in which I choose do some things… and I’m seriously considering more!

      Possibly even as soon as Sunday!

      Elmo gonna go mull it over,
      & knock it around a li’l bit.

      -justice for natalee!

      Holloway tape seen as
      admissible Aruba prosecutor
      to file an appeal

      By Margaret Wever
      The Associated Press
      Tuesday, February 5, 2008

      ORANJESTAD, Aruba — A hidden-camera interview with a Dutch student saying missing teenager Natalee Holloway was dead and that he had a friend dump her body at sea ****** is admissible in court, the chief Aruban prosecutor said Monday. *******

      The courts in Aruba will likely accept the tape as evidence because it was recorded by a private citizen without any influence by authorities, Chief Prosecutor Hans Mos told reporters.

      “I take it very seriously,” Mos said.

      Tick…tock…tick…tock… time goes by, and it just didn’t get better and go away like you thought it would, right, Aruba? In fact people are still very interested and are finding out more and more about the sleaze and filth you pass off as government. Ah, the power of the internet; along with the leaks coming out, makes it harder to keep secrets, doesn’t it? If I were you I would be getting mighty nervous, because this sure doesn’t look like it’s going to let up anytime soon. Tick…tock…

      Third Anniversary coming up – time for more coverage, right?

      headline amigoe: “new” evidence reinforces Beth Twitty’s lie

    18. richard on May 26th, 2008 7:03 am

      On this Memorial Day, please remember the credo to which we give at least lip service, and often much more: “With liberty and justice for all.”

      The motto of the Three Musketeers, as I recall, was “all for one and one for all.”

      Three years ago this week, an injustice occurred that continues to shriek for answers. Let’s resolve that we will never forget or forgive.

      No justice for Natalee? No tourists for Aruba.

      Boycott Aruba … and remember that a very important protest is planned for Washington, D.C., in June. Contact

    19. Carpe on May 26th, 2008 12:29 pm

      #17 I know, I saw that hamsterdam, and damn near died laughing.

      Because even if that was true, which we all know it is re-hashed bullsquat, and it is not.

      THAT WOULD HAVE ***WHAT to do with the fact that Joran has confessed to having Natalee thrown away at sea, unsure if our baby was alive or dead?

      ANSWER: Absolutely Nothing

      The only thing more lies could get that piece of sh** dump from Aruba, they call a NEWS ORGANIZATION, Amigoe…

      …is another wave of pissed off bloggers & American News Anchors looking for your jugular veins.

      …and I hope it comes to light.

      Aruba is a veritable latrine dump. A good buddy of mine said, it needs to be hit with a meteor. He’s right! It could only improve it.

      …and that joke Renee Gielen… Someone needs
      to take that ol’ broad, and tag her in the titty
      with a nerf ball! She needs to go “see a man about a thing.” She’s gonna get somebody hurt
      one of these days with the amount of lies she

      People see right through that ol’ gal.

      Do you know what corruption is???
      Do you know how corruption works???
      Do you know what corruption means???
      Do you know the story about corrupt persons???

      Lawyer Hendriek Croes, former minister of so called justice, but in reality ex minister of corruption and injustice; he himself, Hendriek Croes, is the only lawyer in the world who has earned millions of guilders and dollars and is still earning to lose cases in court in first, second instance, year after year, and he is never sent away or changed for another lawyer, this because the father and mother of corruption is in power: Nelson Orlando Oduber: Prime Minister of Aruba, he and the spiritual brother of Hendriek Croes, Rudy Croes, together with the public prosecuting agency of Aruba, Havenstraat # 2, has perfected and legalised corruption on Aruba. Rudy Croes who is minister of injustice and corruption on Aruba: he with his spiritual brother Hendriek Croes, who both have had the same education by enriching themselves with the sweat of the poor people of Aruba, telling lies, perjury and a lot more garbage of nicknames!!! Thanks to the corrupt to the public prosecuting agency of Aruba, Havenstraat # 2, who has perfected and legalised corruption there.

      Rudy Croes is the most corrupt and obtuse person who has and is now operating as a minister of justice of Aruba, but in reality he is a minister of corruption and injustice, he speaks with a crooked tongue, is an alcoholic, tells lies, smells of wig, smells of plastic surgery, is accessory to rape of innocent Dominican girls, makes false political statements to mask affairs and likes to gossip, a crook one.

      If they have integrity, let them drag me to court!!! Aruba: a corrupt land of plenty.

      The Hague, 04th of October 2008,

      Dear readers,

      Did you know that the head of state, also queen, Beatrix of the Netherlands, is a hypocrite, a liar, and a little puppet of prime minister Mr Drs Prof Jan Peter Balkenende?

      The two of them are also accessory to corruption and violations to the rights of man.

      And now Beatrix must run away for her responsibility and abdicates, because she lacks integrity and that one cannot buy or sell!

      That is what I, Carlos Severino Tromp says, one 100 % capable, one 100 % responsible
      for my deeds, for one 100 % I stand rock hard behind my deeds.

      And who feels insulted by my mutterings, I, Carlos Severino Tromp, advise he or she, it does not matter whom he or she is, or can be,
      General Information Security Service (the prime national Dutch secret service [A.I.V.D]-civil servant) or not, if he or she is not satisfied, take a lawyer and go to court to start a summary proceedings or a general procedure, or whatever, against Carlos Severino Tromp, so that he has to stop with lying about our hypocrite liar, queen and head of state, accessory to corruption and violations of the rights of man.

      Beatrix runs away from her responsibility. Because Beatrix knows well, without INTEGRITY one cannot play for saint and when Satan drives out Satan, he is turning against himself and destroys his own kingdom!

      How can his kingdom then persevere?

      My complaints against mrs Beatrix had as aim to force her to abdicate. This because Beatrix is no good, 28 years of hypocrite behavior, lies and accessory to corruption and violations to the rights of man.

      Dear readers of Shango,

      To my deep regret I have to inform you that, due to unforeseen medical reasons, I am unable to go to Spain on the coming fifteenth of October 2008.

      The earliest convenient date is probably the end of October. As soon as it is possible, I will of course inform Shango as quickly as possible.
