Raid at Foxy Lady on Aruba’s “One Happy Island” due to Human Trafficking … Joran Van der Sloot, Thailand, Human Trafficking … Hmm?
ARRESTS MADE IN ARUBA IN CONNECTION WITH HUMAN TRAFFICKING.
You will not see the following reported or discussed in the travel brochures on why to visit Aruba. Why is that? No where on the Aruba Tourism web site does it reference, things to do in Aruba like partaking in going to a strip club made up of human trafficking. What about fun in the sun, weddings and restricting individuals of their human rights? Shouldn’t tourists know exactly what they are getting themselves into when they spend their hard earned money on a vacation?
Rather than just painting just a rosy picture, shouldn’t Aruba and the Aruba AHATA have some truth in advertising that bad things happen there, NATALEE HOLLOWAY, and continued to due so, HUMAN TRAFFICKING.
What, you mean there is crime on Aruba like human trafficking, say it isn’t so. Human trafficking on “One Happy Island”, never. Isn’t that nice to know that mere miles from the beaches that you visit with your families and streets that your wives and daughters walk that the the Foxy Lady was raided and arrests made as a result of human trafficking. As an aside, isn’t it peculiar that human trafficking be going on in Aruba andJoran Van der Sloot is suspected in doing the same in Thailand. Wonder where he learned his trade?
ORANJESTAD — The Public Prosecutor (OM) announced late yesterday afternoon that the raids and arrests at strip club Foxy Lady regarded an investigation into human trafficking. Supposedly, the strippers were forced to work long hours and were held against their will. [human rights alive and well in Aruba, not]
Scared Monkeys actually discussed the Foxy Lady back in 2009; however, since then the web site has been removed. Looks like some family fun for all, eh? How many tourists coming to Aruba for sun and fun on their white sandy beaches think this kind of debauchery is going on right under their noses?
Foxy Lady Aruba functions as a cocktail lounge and bar featuring a sophisticated menu of hors d’oeuvres, desserts, cigars, fine champagne, wines and liquors. During the day the club provides a variety of massages for men, women, and couples. The late night crowd is also in for a treat with nightly entertainment by our VIP foxies and special acts from around the world including world famous feature entertainers and adult film stars. The club also features one of a kind “confession booths” for those who are feeling a little sinful.
Bachelor and Bachelorette parties are a great sendoff for any bride or groom with several options including a variety of special performances by our international foxies. Also, tables in our VIP rooms can be reserved any time through one of our certified event sales representatives located in several convenient locations across the island.
In addition to the above features, Foxy Lady Aruba specializes in setting up special dates with our lovely escorts and planning unforgettable one-of-a-kind exotic vacations for singles and couples traveling to Aruba.
More from Amigoe – Aruba:
Justice is reckoning with a criminal organization and not precluding further apprehensions. At the time of going to press yesterday, the OM did not wish to elaborate on the facts of the raids and arrests from amongst others, manager Alex Mathew. In total, four persons were apprehended last night amongst whom also a police officer who worked as security guard at the strip club on his off days. How many strippers had been exploited, remains unknown for the time being.
Aruba Investigates Aruba … AG Says No Evidence Found that Alleged Relationship Between Chief Jan van der Straten & Van der Sloot Family Played a Negative role in the Investigation into the Disappearance of Natalee Holloway
File this one under and who is going to investigate the investigator? A cover up to the very end …
Aruban AG Rob Pietersz has stated that there was no evidence found that the former Aruba Chief of Police Jan van der Straten and his cronyism relationship with the Van der Sloot family played a negative role in the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005 in Aruba. Just curious, was there any evidence that the alleged relationship between former corps chief Jan van der Straten and the Van der Sloot-family played a “POSITIVE” role in the investigation?
More from Aruba in Wonderland, where up is down and guilty is innocent
No evidence was found that the alleged relationship between former corps chief Jan van der Straten and the Van der Sloot-family played a negative role in the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Attorney General (PG), Rob Pietersz announced this yesterday afternoon.
Statements from former Minister of Justice Rudy Croes (MEP) at the end of 2008were reason for the Public Prosecutor (OM) to start a factual inquiry into the initial phase of the investigation regarding the disappearance of Holloway. According to Croes, Van der Straten had supposedly consciously hindered the investigation during the crucial initial phase. “However, the statements from Croes could not be proven,” says Solicitor General Taco Stein before the Amigoe“, nor did there appear to be a relationship between Van der Straten and Van der Sloot.”
No evidence, eh? It is amazing how easy it is to find no evidence when one wants to find no evidence. All we need to do is review the investigation of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway to prove the theory. I guess Dutch official Hero Brinkman was wrong as well when he stated that ARUBA WAS CORRUPT AS HELL.
I will tell the truth for $1 million … Joran Van der Sloot continues his manipulative, sick and sociopath games.
Joran Van der Sloot, the suspect in the first degree murder of Stephany Flores in Peru and Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005, wants $1 million from the media for an exclusive TV interview. PLUEZE! Van der Sloot claims he wants it for his legal defense. If any one in the media is that ignorant to pay a habitual liar who has already gone on media outlets numerous times and lied about his involvement in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway, a have a bridge to sell you.
I’ll lie to you for $1 million ….
New York Post, amongst others, announced the aforementioned. According to the newspaper, Joran also wants this more than generous compensation from Dutch TV-producer Global Star Media, who also held the interview with Anita van der Sloot. According to reports, an amount above one hundred thousand dollars was paid for that interview. Notorieties-blog popeater.com reported this yesterday and bases such on sources within the TV-industry. For instance, a media executive in the blog states that an interview with Joran behind bars would yield ‘extremely high ratings’. “If you see what the actors from comedy series Friends are paid per 30-minute episode, then the one million dollars from Joran is a bargain.”
Joran Van der Sloot is a one trick pony. Commit a crime, lie about it, make a confession, retract the confession and then go on TV and get paid by the media to spew his lies, feed his narcism and profit from his crimes. MEDIA, WHAT PART ABOUT JORAN VAN DER SLOOT BEING A SOCIOPATH DON”T YOU FOLKS GET?
Scared Monkeys already has the VIDEO of Joran’s lies and we will predict what he will say so you do not have to waste your money and pay a dirt bag so that a criminal can profit from his crimes. Joran Van der Sloot will say, it was not my fault, I am innocent, I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, TWICE. It was not my fault, I wanted to leave the beach and Natalee wanted me to stay … Stephany violated my space and I defended my self. Does anyone really think that Joran Van der Sloot will tell the media anything when he faces murder charges? GIVE ME A BREAK.
Joran Van der Sloot to Join General Population at Castro Castro Prison in Peru … Is JVDS a Dead Man Walking?
Water seeks it’s own level … welcome to Hell Joran. Who knew that Justice for Natalee abd Stephany might come eventually in the form of “Prison Justice.”
“They’ll be lining up to kill him. He has no hope. He has no chance.”
According to Amigoe, Joran Van der Sloot will soon be put in general population at the Castro Castro prison in Lima, Peru. With two th three months Joran Van der Sloot, the little Dutch boy who has been accused in the robbery and murder of 21 year old Stephany Flores will be put in with the rest of the hardened criminals in the Castro Castro prison. Throw in the fact that Joran Van der Sloot has confessed to the murder and what better place is there for “the little Sporter” than with the rest of the human waste of convicts in general population.
Joran van der Sloot will be transferred to the general department of the Castro Castro prison in Lima within two to three months. He is currently confined in cell on his own in a separate department – for his own safety. Joran is on remand for the murder of the 21-year old Peruvian Stephany Flores.
In a TV-documentary with the Dutch station SBS 6, prison director Ruben Rodriguez Rabanal stated that Joran is in a separate cell as he is involved with a high-profile case’. He will be placed with the other prisoners within two to three months’ time.” The director does not expect any problems. He states that mainly child abusers have a difficult time amongst the prisoners. “Joran is not a child abuser. He is a big fellow. I therefore do not expect any problems when he is placed amongst other prisoners.”
It’s time for Joran Van der Sloot to put on his big boy underwear. The “Little Dutch bboy” is about to learn a lesson of real life, if you can’t do the time, then don’t do the crime. There is no reason why Van der Sloot should be given special treatment. The Castro Castro prison is home to many murderers in general population. Joran van der Sloot is no special than any other killers. Welcome to hell Joran, YOU AIN’T IN ARUBA ANYMORE!!!
However, journalist Wim van de Pol, the only Dutch reporter ever to have visited the Castro Castro prison, says it is perilous inside. “The right of the strongest applies there.” It is indeed a severely guarded prison of the highest level, but the security is only focused on keeping the prisoners inside, Van der Pol explains. “They monitor who goes in and who goes out. What happens inside is not that important.”
How sad is it that five years after the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway, there are some in Aruba that still place blame on Natalee Holloway’s family for the plight of Joran Van der Sloot. Makes me want to visit, NOT! Does any one wonder why people are still calling for a boycott of Aruba?
Vanderbilt – ’06
So how did the news papers in Aruba cover the story of not-so favored son Joran Van der Sloot and his latest exploits that have once again landed him in jail and being interrogated by law enforcement in the death of a girl? Because Aruba did not take the murder of Natalee Holloway seriously in 2005 and decide to prosecute her killer, Joran Van der Sloot was enabled to kill again. This time it was 21 year old Stephany Flores Ramírez in Peru. And Joran Van der Sloot was charged with extortion in the US.
Justice in South America is in ‘hot pursuit’ of the fugitive Joran van der Sloot, according to the media there. The Chilean police confirmed Joran had crossed the Peruvian border into Chili on Monday May 31st. Apparently there is a hunt down going on in the Chilean harbor city Arica. Roadblocks around the city are to prevent him from escaping.
According to the Telegraaf, Joran has confessed the murder of the 21-year old Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramírez. The newspaper reports that during a telephone conversation, he admitted to having stabbed the girl to death. That telephone conversation was supposedly held with a Dutch poker-friend. Rumors on him committing suicide were buzzing about yesterday. However, these are totally unfounded.
Thankfully, we find out this little tid bit of information that the Netherlands has no treaty with Peru that “when” Joran Van der Sloot is found guilty of murder that he will not be able to serve his time in his home country. Instead Joran will be spending time in a Peruvian prison.
For that matter, there is no extradition treaty between the Netherlands and Peru, says Özlem Canel, spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Netherlands. If Joran were to be arrested on Dutch territory due to an international wanted notice, it would be difficult to extradite him, she says. However, Ann Angela, spokeswoman of the OM on Aruba states that an extradition treaty obligates the person’s extradition. “But is could also occur on voluntary basis.” If Joran were to be arrested and ends up in the prison in Peru, there is no treaty with the Netherlands to let him serve his time in his home country.
The reaction in Aruba ran the spectrum of vile hatred of Joran to the sad and pathetic excuses and continued blame of Natalee’s family that we have come all to accustomed with Aruba. Anita van der Sloot, Joran’s mother was shocked. Why Anita, because you figured that all the enabling and covering up of the Natalee Holloway disappearance and death by the late Paulus Van der Sloot would have taught your psychopath son a lesson?
Joran’s mother, artist and teacher Anita van der Sloot was shocked by the reports regarding her son, says the Dutch lawyer of Bert de Rooij in the Dutch press. De Rooij, who represented Joran in the Netherlands, states that the arrest and the new imputations have caused the family much sorrow. Meanwhile, others are very happy with the apprehension of ‘that psychopath’ as he is called on the streets. Reactions on the island on the murder and Joran’s arrest vary from ‘finally justice’ to appeals to castrate him, rape or even hang him.
Then there are those in Aruba that still blame Natalee’s family for the fact that Joran Van der Sloot has killed again. How sick are these people? That is correct, makes one really want to vacation in Aruba, doesn’t it?
For that matter, not everyone is convinced of Joran’s guilt. There are rumors circulating on internet that it’s ‘all very coincidental’. Everything is supposedly a conspiracy of the family of Natalee Holloway. For the time being, the government is not elaborating on whether Joran’s apprehension with all its worldwide publicity, has any consequences for the image of Aruba or the tourism.
Check out how Bondia covered the story of extortion. Then again, maybe readers only need to visit Dilma Arends‘ of Bondia Facebook and see what that crack investigative journalist has to say about Joran Van der Sloot and the extortion.

Or maybe Julia Renfro’s Aruba Today where the front page is devoted to Richard Gere and a wedding on Eagle Beach, there’s some hard hitting journalism for you. You have to get to page 10 before there is any report of Joran Van der Sloot’s arrest.
Diario Aruba reported it as follows and looky here, front page.
Doesn’t this story instill confidence in visiting “One Happy Island”? Airplane cabin fills with smoke as 90 passengers, including two babies had to evacuate the airplane, after having landed at Reina Beatrix airport in Aruba.
The airplane, a MD-80 charter of Falcon Airways Express with a capacity for 172 passengers, flew from Miami to Aruba, and landed at the Reina Beatrix airport at 17.45 hours. During, or after the landing, the pilot switched on the APU too early, probably causing a short circuit, and smoke entered the cabin through the air conditioning system. The APU-system, which supplies electricity at the moment that an airplane is not flying, may only be switched on, after a complete standstill of the airplane, says a spokesperson of the airport authority AAA.
Investigation to Take Place in Aruba for Corruption and Misgovernment … Go Figure … Corrupt or Safe, You Make the Call
CORRUPTION IN ARUBA … REALLY?
Say it isn’t so Joe, what a shocker … corruption in Aruba, who would have thunk it!
The corruption investigation will go on … As reported in Amigoe, an independent investigation will take place on possible corruption and “misgovernment” on Aruba. Aruban Premier Nelson Oduber (MEP) announced earlier that there would be no investigation on corruption on the island. What else would one expect Oduber to say say seeing that it id his party in power and who will be scrutinized. For those that would claim that Aruba is “One Safe Island,” never mind the fact that such a notion would be lost on the family of missing and presumed dead Natalee Holloway. Can one really expect the truth when even the Netherlands states that there is corruption at the highest levels?
Corruption in Aruba … Talk about going out on a limb
By that, she referred to the quoted abuses with governmental institutes of Aruba, in her letter to the Dutch parliament. “You will of course at least need investigation methods to determine this”, says the State Secretary.
However, Premier Oduber did not want to elaborate yesterday as to what the plan of approach should imply, except that it particularly should enervate ‘tall stories’.
On the question if the plan of approach also implies an investigation on possible corruption, he then responded with a ‘no’: “The plan of approach is not an investigation. The Kingdom has no right whatsoever to investigate internal affairs of Aruba.”
The Netherlands have long been worried and accused Aruba of corruption.
Swine Flu in Aruba? According to Amigoe, a Mexican cruise ship which had up to 50 cases of flu contamination was quarantined in Aruba.
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.
Aruba Tourism Down Again Due to Global Economy and Why Does Aruba Check Tourists and Not Underage Teens?
TOURISM DOWN AND TOURISTS CHECKED FOR SWINE FLU WHILE JORAN VAN DER SLOOT NEVER CARDED AT A CASINO OR BAR
It would appear according to the Centrale Bank of Aruba that tourism is once again down on “One Happy Island”. This time they are feeling the effects of the global economy and individuals not having the money to spend abroad to vacation.
Once again Aruba finds itself with a decline in tourism, first due to the disappearance and cover up of Natalee Holloway and now due to the global economy.
The Aruba Tourism Authority’s stay-over visitor statistics indicated declines of 2.3 percent and 7.7 percent, respectively, in the months January and February, compared to the corresponding months a year earlier. In addition, the Central Bureau of Statistics reported that the average occupancy rate of hotels and timeshare resorts registered a 4.4 percentage points fall to 78.5 percent in January 2009, compared to a year earlier. The contraction in stay-over tourism may be an indication that the global economic crisis is affecting Aruba. The Cruise Tourism Authority’s data reveal that the number of cruise passengers increased by 8.7 percent in January 2009, compared to the corresponding month of 2008, despite a 10.9 percent drop in total ship calls, signaling an increase in the size of the ships and/or the occupancy rates of the ships visiting Aruba.
However, isn’t this an interesting way to treat tourists as compared to, oh let’s say Arubans, Dutch and Surinamese individuals who are underage. Aruba is checking disembarking passengers as a Precautionary measures regarding swine influenza according to Amigoe.
Define “reasonably”? Can the term reasonable and a crime being investigated in Aruba actually be used in the same sentence?
Why is anyone supposed to believe everything reasonable was done to investigate the disappearance of Natalee Holloway? Many stated from the outset that the fix was in when two black security guards were arrested while the last three people to be with Natalee Holloway, Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak and Satish Kalpoe remained free to walk the streets. Dutch official Hero Brinkman is on record as saying that Aruba is “Corrupt as Hell!!!”
What is reasonable when one knows that the very island that the crime took place on is corrupt and that one of the suspects, a Dutch citizen, has connections through his father to obstruct justice?
In the case of the article that appeared in Amigo February 11, 2009, The Netherlands: ‘Done everything to solve the Holloway case;’ “reasonably” as defined by whom, former US President Bill Clinton in that it all depend on what the meaning of is, is. Going through the motions of looking like one is cooperating in an investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway is hardly a sincere effort.
The Netherlands has ‘reasonably’ done everything a country can do to solve the case of the disappeared American teenager Natalee Holloway, says state secretary Ank Bijleveld-Schouten (Kingdom Relations, CDA) in a letter to the Lower House that have asked for more information.
Holloway disappeared in May of 2005 and the case is still not solved. There are currently two investigations going in the disappearance case: the criminal investigation into the disappearance of the teenager and an investigation by the national detective into the allegations of Justice-minister Rudy Croes in the early stages of the criminal investigation.
Jan van der Stratten
It was in December of last year that Croes accused the former chief of police Jan van der Straaten of having blown the investigation in the first ten days. He did this in consideration of his friendship with Paul van der Sloot, the father of Joran van der Sloot, who is still the prime suspect. The Public Prosecutor doesn’t give any details during this investigation, writes Bijleveld to the Lower House.
