UPDATE I: Passengers may leave Ocean Dream

ORANJESTAD — Most of the passengers of the cruise ship Ocean Dream were allowed to leave the ship this morning, except for the three crewmembers that contracted the Mexican influenza. Passengers with influenza symptoms must remain in quarantine aboard the ship for at least seven days. If these passengers actually are infected with the AH1N1-virus, then the ship will be held under arrest for a longer period. The first to leave the ship, were the four Arubans upon explicit request of the authorities.

      …and Aruba just keeps on sucking!

      Getting stuck in that armpit is finally a good
      reason to take a dive off of a cruise ship.

      Kill yourself, Hell would be a party!

      The fact that the ship was allowed to dock is worthy of praise. That still does not mitigate rampant wide scale corruption in Aruba about to be investigated.

      On June 22 next Secretary of State Bijleveld-Schouten of the Netherlands will meet with Prime-Minister Nel Oduber to discuss the details of the upcoming “national integrity system investigation”.

      Contrary to the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) and the recommendations of the Coalition of Civil Society Friends of the UNCAC, which includes Transparency International and Rainbow Warriors International NO local stake-holders will be included in the investigation.

      Both the Dutch and Aruban Governments have things to cover up including not in the last place the way the Natalee Holloway case was botched!!!

      And the Cruiseship was from a European Company?
      Don’t those Europeans know how to screen their crew for the virus?
