Aruban Police Officer Suspcted of False Reporting of Witness Declarations


Aruban police officer, Edgar Maduro, is suspected of false reporting. Maduro is now formally suspected of violating article 194 of the Criminal Code, in other words, false reporting. You mean after all this time there is an actual criminal code in Aruba for false reporting on a declaration? Maybe the OM would like to go back and re-evaluate all of the declarations by Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe, Satish Kalpoe, Paulus Van der Sloot et all and see if the same criminal codes were not violated in the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Its the least the OM could do after 3 years have transpired since Natalee Holloway went missing.

The Public Prosecutor (OM) is now suspecting him of false reporting and decided to hear the police officer again.  After Maduro was confronted on Thursday with the existing suspicion, he told the OM before the interrogation that he appeals to his right to remain silent.  Maduro didn’t want to listen to the findings of the National-detective and left with his lawyer after having left behind a written statement saying that he does not see any reason for adding to the statements he had already given.

Suspected police officer Maduro appeals to his right to remain silent (Amigoe: 6/1/2008)

Edgar Maduro (r) with lawyer Jean Maurice De Cuba on his way to the National detectives for interrogation.  

ORANJESTAD – Police officer Edgar Maduro was interrogated as suspect on Thursday morning, in the case in which he reported an attempted manslaughter by lawyer Hendrik Croes.  It appears that Croes self has also reported against Maduro on April 24.

The Public Prosecutor (OM) is now suspecting him of false reporting and decided to hear the police officer again.  After Maduro was confronted on Thursday with the existing suspicion, he told the OM before the interrogation that he appeals to his right to remain silent.  Maduro didn’t want to listen to the findings of the National-detective and left with his lawyer after having left behind a written statement saying that he does not see any reason for adding to the statements he had already given. 

Maduro indicated further that the questions during his interrogation on April 2 came directly from the office of Mister Croes.  The OM indicated in a reaction that this remark is entirely Maduro’s view.  The OM decides after the National-detective rounds off the report, how the case against both suspects, Croes and Maduro is going to be concluded.


When Maduro was heard on April 2, the OM became suspicious that he wasn’t entirely truthful in his reporting of March 16, 2008; also as a result of witness declarations, including two police officers, TV-images, and marks on Croes’ car and his statements.

The OM decided to investigate some more and the National-detective reconstructed the incident at the roundabout of Paradera on May 18.  Maduro is now formally suspected of violating article 194 of the Criminal Code, in other words, false reporting.  He was therefore summoned by the OM for interrogation early this week and his superiors were also informed.  According to the OM, the KPA has also informed the police union.

      Yeah, well… we all know what a stellar police force Aruba has! The case must not have involved Paulus vander Slime or his twisted spawn.

    2. Miss-Underestiamted on June 2nd, 2008 12:32 pm

      Whewie, it stinking to the high heavens in Aruba.

      Such a crock of crap.

      Hey Aruba remember June 10, 2005, when Aruba made the statement that the supsect confessed and is leading authorities to the body? Then remember Joran confessed again to dumping Natalee at sea, and he did not know if she was alive?

      Bunch of stinkin ole pigs, every single on of them.

      Maybe Dennis Jacobs has some explaining to do.


      Beth Holloway

      Page 89
      As dinner concludes, Detective Jacobs appears at our table.

      … The detective says he just wants me to sign a new statement. Jug immediate asks him, “What’s the difference between this one and the one she gave you this morning?’ Jacobs says that some dates were wrong on that one and have been corrected, and he needs my signature on the new corrected one.

      The document is in Dutch, which is Greek to me. I have no idea what it says. I can’t tell if it’s different from the one the young officer read to me this morning, which I signed, or not. But all I have to rely on is the Aruban police process, so I gladly submit to his request and sign every single page.

      Page 187:
      After waiting months to find out what my statement actually says. Jug calls on my first day in California. He has finally been able to obtain the translation of my statement from the prosecutor Karin Janssen. The one the detective brought to me to sign late that night in the restaurant.

      … And I trusted him and signed ever page.

      “Listen to this, Beth …” The words he sends echo in my head. I begin to sink, and could slide to the ground out of my chair.

      “Jug, they changed it. They changed my statement.” I had carefully gien intricate details about the encounter in the van der Sloot front yard the first night we got to the island, including names and physical descriptions.

      GRACE: What was left out, Beth?

      BETH HOLLOWAY TWITTY: There were a lot of names that were left out, you know, just key elements as far as how Joran asked Jug and — to leave the group before he admitted the sexual assaults that he committed against Natalee and — and just a lot of things. You know, Paulus`s name — I didn`t know anyone`s name. I didn`t know Charles Croes`s name, which is just ludicrous.

      I commented to Jacobs about how short my statement was. He said that I could add anything I wanted to it. Also, I noticed that Eric Soemers’ name was on it, but that detective was not even present during the interview. Now I wondered if Jacobs was making up everyone’s statement and getting Eric to sign on to them. If that were the case, he could state anything he wanted, and it would look like an official statement made in front of a witness.

      Hey Mister HAN MOS , Mr. Mos!!!!!

      Read me a bedtime story again…

      I want to hear the fairy tale

      about the Dutch Prosecutor that has

      25 detectives working diligently on Natalee

      Holloway’s case around the clock in Lie-Ruba.

      You know,

      the one where they have meetings everyday

      talking about how to solve her case with no

      evidence, but a full blown video taped confession.

      Yeah, the one where they never call her dear mother & father to give them any sort of progress
      report or hope with the still current investigation of their daughter.

      (still wide open as of June 2, 2008)

      Yesssss, that’s the one. Oooh-weeee whooptie

      doeyyyyy! Dat one is a winggg dangggg DOODLE! :)

      (smacking head & doing Elmo happy dance)

      Oh no, say it isn’t so!!!!! What a bunch freaking incompetent smelly pigs…those corrupt, lying, lowlife savages wouldn’t know the law of the land if it ran over them with an Army tank!! The PIGS (DOMPIG INCLUDED) just make things up as they go to suit their needs or the needs of the criminals they are protecting for whatever reason, just like Paulass and Urine Van der Slut, Deepuke and Satan K(Alpoe arf, arf), and any other slimeball who was involved with Natalee’s disappearance.

      Anyone considering a vacation on that third world, poverty stricken, drug infested Dutch protectorate called Aruba is out of their everloving minds!!! Also, you are taking your lifes into your on hands…

      i feel sorry for this officer. his complaint was against the brother of the current minister of justice. he’s a former minister of justice himself, and they can produce “cabbies that speak 27 languages and have perfect recall” all day long to lie for croes.

    18. A New Girl on June 2nd, 2008 8:43 pm

      #4 – Tamiko’s Mom—-thanks for your dilligence by providing those posts with information to help refresh our memories on the time lines, former statements by the perps, etc.

      Amazing—-every time I read and re-read more about this case, I don’t know whether I want to scream with rage over the injustice or cry again for Natalee and her family. UNBELIEVABLE when you really think about it.

      #16- Carpe–LMAO, LOL, LMFAO, ROTFL , etc. etc. Love it ! Thanks again for keeping everything in it’s proper perspective and providing such a sad story with much needed humor.

      As far as the article above goes, nothing- absolutely NOTHING one reads about that Island comes as a surprise anymore! It all really kind of adds up to one thing—what a freakin’ MESS Aruba is !!



    19. Patti on June 2nd, 2008 9:34 pm

      Poor guy…

      Now he has to worry about everybody he loves because Minister Croes is the Protector and Enforcer of the Looooong arm of the Arawak Nation.

      The judges don’t enforce the law…

      they enforce whatever Oduber and Co. want the law to be,

      at the time.


      Tyranny, takes on different forms,

      but all of them include:

      Different rules for different people…




      Hey, Aruba:

      You voted for him… so how do you like the feeling of being totally dispensable if and when you just happen to come up against Oduber, Minister Croes or their friends and relatives… even if by mistake? Is this the man you respect, or do you act purely out of fear?

      Do you prefer an ‘organized’ government;

      or do you prefer to have some sense of humanity,

      fairness and equality in your law?

      Should a small group of ministers be held above the law?…

      AND their brothers and sisters…

      or should the law be the law,

      no matter who you are?



      … the communist island where all the rules are thrown out the window and it’s a free for all for whoever appears to be in charge, at the time.

      You’re a joke!

      Making yourselves out to be the fools of the world… It won’t be long before the word Aruban will be synonomous with corrupt!



      over a stupid car accident.


      How about opening your ‘X’ Files

      and let us take a peek into all those secrets

      you’ve been hiding over the past decade!


      We need a hero, and it’s apparent that our hero

      ISN’t going to be a member of the parliament,

      nor its’ friends, brothers, sisters,

      aunts, uncles or cousins.

      Other than that… Aruba has some good people.

      Do they dare raise their heads?



      rollling around the bottom of the sea…


      Slay the Dragon!!!!!!

      Why, OHHHHH WHY, do you follow him?

    22. Ray on June 2nd, 2008 10:53 pm

      What is this rounding off of a report,is that what they did to the ststement that Beth signed. Maybe that is why they have no evidence on Joran and the Kelpoes

    23. Ray on June 2nd, 2008 11:15 pm

      I think the whole ALE is suspect.


    24. Bearlyhere on June 2nd, 2008 11:33 pm

      This is not news. Please wake me up when they find an honest member of ALE.

      Seems this is all the evidence they need to haul Dennis Jacobs’ butt back to Aruba and put him behind bars….he had a low-level lacky that wasn’t present sign statements — CAN YOU SAY FRAUD ARUBA??? Arrest Paulus and end this nightmare.

      hey aruba can you spell I-D-I-O-T-S ? that’s YOU ARUBA……freekin’ idiots!! from the top down to the bottom.

      STUCK ON STUPID is an understatement…….

      #25 MDad….i agree with you, if this be theier new policy they should bring all of the original players in the NH case back and charge them all with this article 194 of thier so called “criminal code”. i suspect ALE wouldn’t know an article 194 of any criminal code if it jumped up and bit them in the ass…..

    28. MissKatie on June 3rd, 2008 9:19 am

      They keep putting their foot in their mouth..

      Aruba the joke of the world.. they dont even care what that the whole world is laughing at them..

      they are harboring a killer.. pauulus!!!
      he and anita are just as guilty…. well pauulus more so…

      to bad no one hires a private detective to follow him around day and night put a gps tracker on his car… and etc etc

      bet we could learn alot

      so what if its not legal

      anything and everything aruba has done is not legal!!!

    29. brie. on June 3rd, 2008 10:51 am

      How many statements did Joran and the Kalpoes make and continually changed their stories….documents altered, statements changed….Beth was a victim of that also, she signed a statement and then was told she had to sign another because the date needed to be changed but what they really did was change the statement…she wasn’t aware of this at first because it wasn’t written in English and she trusted what they said, after having it translated she found out….lucky for the two black security guards that Beth came along and saved them for being blamed by the 3 murderteers….

    30. brie. on June 3rd, 2008 11:05 am

      And just what actually happened to Office Halle, he reportedly retrieved a body from the sand dunes on June 2, 2005. Dave Holloway saw the officer slam the trunk of his car and speed off when he approached. Allegedly a crooked police office, so they say, but who knows…he can’t defend himself because he’s dead…

      Cheerleaders in Aruba? These girls most likely travel with quite a bit of security furnished by the teams or sponsors.

      What mother in her right mind would want their daughter to go to this place? You can lie and frame people for murder, get togther with others and make up lies to tell the cops, clean your car before daylight inside and out the night the person you were last seen with goes missing, you can lie where you left the missing person numerous times, be in counseling for stealing, no was it study habits?, no was it gambling, no was it anger problems?, out gambling and drinking all night underage repeatedly, brag it takes a case of beer to get you drunk, lie about your shoes mysteriously missing and unaccounted for, have a vip pass underage to a bar, let her former judge in training father take you underage to a bar and gamble with you then leave you to gamble more, let the guy’s father and mother and 2 friends with the mother lie over and over that the missing person was last seen with, throw wine in peoples faces when you don’t get your own, smoke weed and brag how to beat a drug test in jail, smoke weed and confess you were with a date that had seizures and imitate them shaking , throw them in the weeds, and call someone to get rid of them, while you go home and sleep fine, you can say you took Natalee to your house, next time you say you didn’t, you can say in chat sessions the fact the girl is dead is not good, tell a girl on the phone I don’t want to tell you what happened and get you involved, have most of your friends arrested for heavy battery, murder, kidnapping, give 5 different ways you got home, all 3 last with Natalee conflicting statements, have your father’s friend handle the police case, be a cousin to the police, have an AHATA member briefing the usa when your cousin is a suspect, take the fifth over and over, have your lawyer meet with the prosecution and say my client had something to do with this, its up to you to prove it, have your father refer to the victim as a body with 2 days after shes missing, all hide out in the house and let everyone else look in a place that you lied about taking her, say in a chat session you lied about the victim to throw off and investigation before anyone even knows shes missing and there is an investigation, call the victim names because she was dressed in summer clothing etc…

      but heaven forbid if you are an 18 year old well loved honor student who went out and got a job to help pay for her 4 day graduation trip with her friends to celebrate and enjoy what they all worked hard to achieve, and they were all doing fine until these 3 entered the picture..

      Translation= Acknowledgement of other documentation of falsified statements that exist, but…well, you know—let’s just ignore that CORRUPTION WITHIN ARUBA’S LEGAL SYSTEM AS WELL SINCE RIGHT NOW, we have bigger fish to fry??

Arrest the VDS for saying that the black guys did it to Natalee. Put the whole lot of them in the slammer and let the someone else run things on Aruba.
