Admitting to Kidnapping & Human Trafficking Will Joran and Paulus Van der Sloot Be Arrested After Joran’s Interview With Greta Van Susteren
Will there be ramifications to Joran Van der Sloot’s admission that he sold Natalee Holloway for $10,000 and in the process admitted to kidnapping and human trafficking? Did Joran implicate his father in a crime, let alone the many other names he mentioned during the interview that he claimed had knowledge or participated in the crime and cover up?
In the wake of Joran Van der Sloot’s interview with Greta Van Susteren and “On the Record” will Aruban prosecutors look to arrest Joran and his father Paulus Van der Sloot for kidnapping and human trafficking? Joran Van der Sloot following the interview claimed that he was just lying and it never happened. However, should Aruban prosecutors arrest Joran and his father and look into the admission that the one time suspect made? It is not as though the “human trafficking” theory was not made a while back with regards to Natalee’s disappearance. Just recently, Joran Van der Sloot was also caught on video tape in Thailand discussing sex trade and human trafficking in a Thai hotel room. Alas, that was a lie too? All of his stories cannot be lies …
Will the Aruban prosecutor do his job and either prove or disprove Joran Van der Sloot’s latest admission to what occurred in the case of missing Natalee Holloway? How many times is Joran Van der Sloot allowed to confess to a crime, only to then say he was lying? Hans Mos has a responsibility to follow up on these admissions as well as other new evidence that has come forward.
As his own US attorney Joe Tacopina stated, “he’s a sick kid”. If as Tacopina said that Joran is incapable of telling the truth then why does he or any of the other attorney representing Joran Van der Sloot think that the “sick kid” was telling them the truth? Why wouldn’t the converse also he true when Joran states that he had nothing to do with Natalee’s disappearance? If Joran is a liar as Tacopina states, then one must also believe that he lied to his attorneys in saying that he was innocent of any crime with regarding to the disappearance of Natalee.
In a letter from Natalee Holloway’s family attorney to the Aruban Prosecutor Hans Mos, John Q. Kelly stated the following:
“A newly released videotape of Joran van der Sloot making statements against penal interests (admitting to kidnapping, human trafficking, conspiracy and other crimes) to Greta Van Susteren is readily available … and independently corroborated by the undisputed fact that he was the last person with Natalee when she vanished from the beach by the fisherman’s huts. That, coupled with the fact that he initially fabricated demonstrably false accounts as to what happened to Natalee … and was accused by the Kalpoes of engaging in criminal conduct in Natalee’s disappearance … in a June 29, 2005, surreptitiously recorded audiotape, all provide a more than sufficient legal basis for the immediate issuance of an arrest warrant for Joran van der Sloot.” Kelly says there is enough evidence to arrest Paulus van der Sloot and Deepak and Satish Kalpoe.

VAN SUSTEREN: … Then that’s whole — then there’s problems for Paulus.
VAN SUSTEREN: If, if.
HAMMER: Then this — if that’s true and it’s authenticated, Greta, this is the craziest case we’ve ever talked about. I mean, and the thing that still troubles me is, give me another scenario by which his father would have uttered the words “human trafficking.” I mean, it is such a distinctive thing to come out of his father’s mouth. But the last thing, Greta, rather than do an arrest right now, they ought to do the spade work, the hard work of corroboration. If those wire transfers could be proven, Greta, together with his story, then we’ve got a real, real dynamite piece of evidence here.
VAN SUSTEREN: And of course, but the thing is that you’ve got to have a willingness to either prove or disprove. And if you’re not even going to bother to do either, you’re never going to find out.
GRIMM: Yes, I know what your point is, which is, you know, let the cards fall where they may. He gets found guilty, not guilty, but at least do the legwork. And I think what Jim’s saying — you know, people think — and a lot of our people think cases are made by the CSI stuff. It’s not. It’s out knocking on doors, doing the legwork, serving subpoenas, getting cell phone records, Western Union records, all this stuff…
