Beth Holloway Sues National Enquirer (American Media Inc) Over Publishing Untrue Stories to Profit from Natalee Holloway’s 2005 Disappearance in Aruba
RETURN OF THE JEDI …
Beth Holloway, the mother of Natalee Holloway who went missing in 2005 in Aruba and is presumed deceased, has sued the National Enquirer for publishing false stories of her daughters disappearance to profit from the story over the past 7 years. The lawsuit references several articles, including one that claims Joran van der Sloot had a “secret hand-drawn” map to Holloway’s grave. More to the point, the lawsuit claims the National Enquirer knew statements used in stories were false when they were published anyways.
The mother of Natalee Holloway is suing The National Enquirer, saying the tabloid published untrue stories to profit from her daughter’s 2005 disappearance in Aruba.
Beth Holloway said in the lawsuit filed Wednesday that the magazine and its publisher, American Media Inc., published “false headlines, articles and statements” for nearly seven years.
“They keep on doing it,” said Lin Wood, the attorney for Beth Holloway. “We had no choice but to file this lawsuit. This is a mother who has exercised every effort to make sure her daughter is alive.”
Beth Holloway has continued to search for answers as to what happened to her daughter in Aruba in 2005 and who was responsible. Beth remains a missing persons advocate as she speaks to others to inform them on the dangerous of travel. She continues to pursue “JUSTICE FOR NATALEE’. According to reports, the lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Peru’s Supreme Court OK’s Joran Vander Sloot’s Extradition to US for Extortion in Connection with the Death of Natalee Holloway
Joran Van der Sloot is back in the news …
Peru’s Supreme Court has ok’d Joran Van der Sloot’s extradition to the United States to face extortion charges in connection with the death of Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005 by attempting to extort Beth Holloway. It was long suspected that Peru’s court would approve the extradition. Peru’s top court stipulated, however, that Joran Van der Sloot can only be extradited to the United States after serving his sentence. The Little Dutch boy is presently serving a 28 year sentence in prison in Peru for the murder of Stephany Flores.
Joran van der Sloot may, in due course, be extradited to the United States, Peru’s Supreme Court has ruled.
Mr Van der Sloot is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence in Peru for the murder of Stephany Flores, though an appeal against the ruling is still pending. He is wanted in the United States in connection with the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, who went missing in Aruba in 2005, and alleged attempts by the Dutchman to extort her mother.
Van der Sloot was indicted in Alabama on wire fraud and extortion charges. Hopefully the Peru government can interject itself and have Van der Sloot face the American music sooner rather than later.
That on or about May 10, 2010, the defendant, Joran van der Sloot, did obstruct, delay, and affect commerce and the movement of any article or commodity in commerce, by extortion and attempts to do so, in that, the defendant did knowingly and willfully cause another person to wire transfer a partial payment of money ($15,000) from a financial institution in Birmingham, Alabama, to a financial institution in the Netherlands, after representing to the other person that he would provide the location of Natalee Holloway’s remains in Aruba and information regarding the circumstances of her death, upon receipt of $250,000 from the other person, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1951(a).
That on or about May 10, 2010, the defendant, Joran van der Sloot, having devised or intending to devise any scheme and artifice to defraud, or for obtaining money or property by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, did knowingly and with intent to defraud did knowingly and willfully cause to be transmitted by means of wire communication in interstate and foreign commerce, any writings, signs, signals, pictures, or sounds, that being, a wire transfer in the amount of $15,000, from Birmingham, Alabama, to the Netherlands for the purpose of executing and attempting to execute such scheme and artifice, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1343.
Coming Soon to America … Joran Van der Sloot’s Extradition to the United States on Extortion Charges … Justice for Natalee Holloway
Not only is extradition inevitable, so is justice … Joran Van der Sloot upset over the prospects of finally facing justice in the United States.
It would seem that it will not be too much longer before Joran van der Sloot will be coming to America. According to Van der Sloot’s Peruvian attorney Maximo Altez, the extradition of the “little sporter” to the United States on wire fraud and extortion charges could be occurring later this summer. Joran Van der Sloot is being charged in Alabama with extortion and wire fraud.
The extradition of Joran van der Sloot to the U.S. on charges of wire fraud and extortion in connection with the death of Natalee Holloway will likely take place this summer, his lawyer told ABC News today.
“The power of the United States will assure that Joran has to face a U.S. judge and I think the extradition will happen probably in two or three months,” Maximo Altez said in an exclusive interview with ABC News.
Altez spoke to ABC News after van der Sloot appeared in a jailhouse courtroom at Piedras Gordas prison, about two hours north of Lima.
The irony of Joran’s defense attorney argument against extradition is that Van der Sloot could not receive a fair trial in the United States. Hmm, much like the fair investigation and justice that Natalee Holloway and the Holloway family received in Aruba? As per attorney Altez, Joran Van der Sloot is “very upset” with the prospects of being extradited to the US. Image that, most people are upset when they know the gig is up.
Altz spoke with ABC News after the court appearance and said van der Sloot was “very upset with the prospect of being extradited to the U.S. I haven’t seen Joran so down, so depressed since I took on his defense almost two years ago.”
Why such a sad face Joran? You were so quick to come to America to spew your lies on American TV over and over again? However, this time you do not want an all expense paid trip courtesy of the United States justice system? Do you know what that sound is Joran? It is the sound of inevitability and the walls of justice closing in on you … Justice for Natalee.
Suspect in Natalee Holloway disappearance Joran Van der Sloot Being Evaluated for Extradition to US from Peru for Extortion Charges
HEY JORAN, YOU’RE NOT IN ARUBA ANYMORE …
Just when Joran Van der Sloot thought it was safe to go back in the Aruba water … well, he won’t be doing that for some time as he faces a 28 year sentence in a Peruvian prison for the murder of Stephany Flores, Van der Sloot faces new issues.
According to Maximo Altez, Joran van der Sloot’s Peruvian attorney, Van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruna in 2005 now faces possible extradition to the United States. Joran Van der Sloot was charged with extortion in Alabama for allegedly receiving $25,000 from Beth Holloway in order to tell her where to find the remains of Natalee Holloway. Needless to say, after Van der Sloot had received the monies, he lied to Beth Holloway as to the location where her daughter could be found.
A lawyer for Joran van der Sloot says Peru is evaluating a request by the United States to extradite the jailed Dutchman, who is the main suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.
The 24-year-old also faces extortion charges in Alabama for allegedly receiving $25,000 from Holloway’s mother to tell her where to find the remains of her daughter, who was 18 when she disappeared while on vacation.
CNN is reporting, the extradition process could be completed in the next three months.
