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 Daily … Court 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?
