What Did the News Papers in Aruba Have to Say About Joran Van der Sloot and his 28 Year Sentnce in Prison for the Death of Stephany Flores


Yesterday justice was finally provided in Peru in the murder of Stephany Flores. Joran Van der Sloot was finally held accountable for his actions for the first time in his life. Joran Van der Sloot was sentenced to 28 years in prison.  Joran Van der Sloot was the primary suspect in the death and disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway when she went missing in Aruba in 2005. A question to those in Aruba … how does it feel to know you could have prevented Stephany’s murder and instead allowed a predator to walk free and murder again?

After continual lies from Joran, obstruction of justice and incompetence and cronyism from law enforcement investigating the case. Dutch officials called Aruba, “corrupt as Hell”.  In the end Joran Van der Sloot was never held accountable nor prosecuted in Aruba. Even after multiple confessions from Joran Van der Sloot regarding Natalee, Aruba refused to move a finger. The end result, a sociopath struck again, five years to the date that Natalee Holloway went missing in Aruba, Joran Van der Sloot brutally and savagely killed Stephany Flores in Peru. Take away all the cronyism, take away all the favoritism, take away all the helping hands that Joran Van der Sloot received in Aruba and place him in a country where he was treated like just one of the many and what do we get … JUSTICE!

So what did the Aruba newspapers have to report regarding their favorite son? Although I must admit Jossy Mansur and Diario were not among the Aruba media that defended Joran. From the outset they were critical of Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe and Satish Kalpoe. Diario was actually interested in investigative journalism, not just protecting Aruba tourism at any cost. Kudos to Diario for trying to find the truth, instead of being more concerned with taking pics at the Saperstein wedding and trying to slander Natalee Holloway and her family.

Scared Monkeys had chatted with Jossy Mansur, the Managing Director of Diario Aruba and asked if he could not share his feelings regarding the 28 year sentence that Joran Van der Sloot received. Mr. Mansur has been a guest numerous times on Scared Monkeys radio discussing Joran van der Sloot during the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba and the murder of Stephany Flores in Peru.

I followed the Joran affair pretty closely in Peru, and think the panel of 3 female judges did what was right.

Joran got what he deserved. The way he behaved in court must have convinced whomever still doubted his culpability that this man has absolutely no feelings, less of all remorse. Stefanie’s death was in the utmost degree cruel and I fear a paralell in Natalee’s case.

I think his next move will be to try to serve his sentence in Holland, depending on whatever treaty Peru may have with Holland in that respect.

Best regards to all of you

From The Morning News – Aruba.

From Amigoe – English: Joran sentenced to 28 years imprisonment and damages

His confession last week was considered by the court in Lima, Peru as ‘not sincere’ and could therefore not be used to considerably reduce the sentence demanded of 30 years. The judges ruled it was not a sincere confession because during the judicial investigation into the murder Joran had initially revoked his confession and wanted to have this declared invalid. Moreover, in that way Joran had not cooperated entirely with Justice. He had hoped that his confession would yield him a considerably lower sentence.

At Aruba DailyCourt sentences Joran van der Sloot to 28 years

The prosecution maintained Van der Sloot killed Flores with “ferocity” and “cruelty,” concealing the crime and fleeing to Chile, where he was caught two days after Flores’ decaying body was found. [...]

Natalee Holloway disappeared on May 30, 2005, during a high school graduation trip to Aruba, where van der Sloot grew up. Her body was never found and repeated searches turned up nothing as intense media coverage brought the case worldwide attention.

Investigators have long worked from the assumption that the young woman died in Aruba, where the case was classified as a homicide investigation. That investigation remains open, though there has been no recent activity, said Solicitor General Taco Stein, an official with the prosecutor’s office in Aruba.

What say you Aruba? Do you really think that the “cruelty” and “ferocity” of the murder of Stephany Flores was also not the same fate that was met by Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005? Really, you cant add one and one? For all those who defended Joran Van der Sloot, what do you say now? Joran van der Sloot could have been imprisoned for what he did, instead he was allowed to be emboldened by not being held accountable. Natalee Holloway was just legally declared dead this past week by an Alabama judge … a question to many in Aruba, how does it feel to have blood on your hands?

      I just heard that Joran had once beaten his brother so badly that he almost died. After that, his parents made him sleep outside the family home in a guest cottage (or maid’s quarters). They were afraid of what he might do to the family. It seems to me that they were very much aware of the danger he presented yet they treated the Holloway family with so much arrogance. Without a doubt that family knew all along what he did and assisted him knowing full well what a monster he was.

      When the POS Dutch National finishes serving his sentence at age 52, he should still be extradited to the US to stand charges on his Extortion.

      I do believe the Sporter’s life is officially over- and regardless of where he serves his time or under what circumstances, it is safe to say his other life as he knows it is officially over.

      Is Joran’s true punishment for also being involved in Natalee Holloways murder having to live here on Earth with his measly, pathetic existence a reminder of how every day he is paying for his Crimes?

      Perhaps. I think that will depress Joran and drive him even crazier than he already is.

      Never forget you, Natalee.

      Natalee went missing on May 3oth. By the following tuesday it was apparent the Aruban criminal justice system was in protect mode to cover for Joran and his enabler father.

      I will always believe that both were involved in the abduction and subsequent murder of Natalee along with the hiding of the body.

      This could have been over by Friday if George Bush would have acted to protect American tourists. The entire island should have been taken into the custody of the U.S. Marines and the FBI used to conduct the investigation.

      Corruption from the Governor down to the beach police to protect two pieces of human garbage.

      Joran is a big mean guy. Any family that produces a child with that type or behavior should place them into a facility where they could not harm themselves or anyone else.

      Daddy (Paulus)Van der Sloot was in this up to his eyeballs. His position in the government was used to prevent justice for Natalee.

      I guess Thailand gave up on pursuing criminal charges against Van der Sloot. What do you want to bet he had a lot to do with trafficing young women into the sex slave gang?

      The couple that bought his restaurant in Thailand said it was really a dirty mess. And the books were in complete disarray. I would doubt if they even close to being accurate.

      Joran’s parents knew what a nut case he was. Beat up his brother, put in the hospital and he nearly dies. So they put Joan outside in the guest house and never did another thing about his behavior. Shot his dog and killed him with a paintball.

      Maybe Natalee is buried on the Sloot property. That could be why Joran shot and killed his dog because he was digging her up. Then Paulus has concrete delivered and builds a wall. What was the reason for the wall? Anita knows what transpired and is guilty as Paulus and Joran.

      The priest at the church that the Sloot’s attend is across the road from them. He refused to see Dave Holloway. Why was that? Because he probably was somehow involved in Natalee’s burial. Maybe a handsome sum was given to him from Paulus.

    6. Virginian on January 15th, 2012 10:48 am

      I hold Anita almost as responsible, as well as the surviving brother. Either could have spoken out. Both knew of Johan’s proclivities, and both had to be suspicious of the cement wall and killing of the dog. Perhaps Stephany would be alive if they had.

      RIP, Natalee. Prayers and good wishes to Beth and Dave. You both tried mightily.

    7. Bleachedblack on January 15th, 2012 12:48 pm

      Surviving brother….singular? know much about the case? There are two surviving brothers. The whole family knew exactly what Joran was up to, and covered up for him…..there will be no justice for Natalee. We have to take justice where obtainable…in this case for Stephany, and in knowing that Sloot won’t be able to hurt anyone else outside of the prison that is his tomb.
      SM: Ease up BB, could be a typo. No reason to go ballistic on one’s comment. Everyone might not know as much as you. They might not know as much as I do. Hardly a reason to brow beat them for what they were saying … The gist of what they are saying is they blame the family for knowing what JVDS was all about.

    8. Johan on January 16th, 2012 6:23 am

      This matter is far from over, there will be an appeal and extradition to The Netherlands once the penalty is final.

      Say he gets 21 years in appeal, he only needs to serve 1/3th = 7 years and can ask for extradition after 2/3 of those 7 years = 4years, now deduct the time already served and he’ll be in Holland in roughly 2 years time.

    9. Carpe on January 16th, 2012 10:05 am

      Johan -

      Make sure to send your address to the Alabama Gov.

      After Joran serves his sentence – the one he will be getting soon in AL… we’ll make sure they send you a pair of Joran’s jockey shorts!

      I know you’ll love him no matter what he does or who he kills.
