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.

MSM Finally Reports that Peru Court Approves Joran Van Der Sloot Extradition to US on Extortion Charges in Connection with Death of Natalee Holloway

As Scared Monkeys reported last Saturday, the MSM has finally decided to report that Peru courts have approved Joran Van der Sloot’s extradition to the United States on extortion and wire fraud charges.However, according to the court’s decision, Van der Sloot must first serve his 28 year sentence for the murder of Stephany Flores before he can be extradited to the US on extortion charges.  Before the decision is made final, it must be approved by Peru’s justice minister and Cabinet.

U.S. prosecutors who want to try Joran van der Sloot for extortion related to the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway will have to wait until he finishes serving a murder sentence in Peru, this nation’s Supreme Court has ruled.

Van der Sloot’s lawyer, who was notified of the decision Friday, said Monday that he expects his client will be made to serve at least two-thirds of the 28-year sentence.

The court’s May 23 decision on extradition is not final, however. Peru’s justice minister and Cabinet must endorse it, said the lawyer, Maximo Altez.

Van der Sloot, 24, faces extortion and wire fraud charges in Alabama in connection with Holloway’s unsolved disappearance in Aruba exactly five years before he killed Peruvian college student Stephany Flores after meeting her in a Lima casino.

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.

Count One

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).

Count Two

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.

Joran Van der Sloot’s Lawyer Whines that His Client Removed from Castro Castro Prison and Put in More Strick Piedras Gordas

Attorney Jiménez cry me a river, “how about some cheese with that “whine” …

According to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, Joran Van der Sloot has been removed from solitary confinement at Piedras Gordas prison and now back in a cell shared with another con.  However, Van der Sloot’s attorney is whining over the fact that the “Sperter” has been transferred from Castro Castro prison in the Peruvian capital of Lima to Piedras Gordas in the desert outside the city. Piedras Gordas  is considered a more harsh and strict prison. Jimenez is appealing the transfer and says that it was uncalled for, because Van der Sloot had not misbehaved and the image that his cell was luxurious was incorrect. Attorney Jiménez, ask us if we care?

The VIDEO of Joran Van der Sloot’s sentencing that we never get tired of

“He is no longer in a mediation cell as they call it, but he now has more room and shares his cell with another detainee.”

He says Van der Sloot is still annoyed that he has been transferred from the Castro Castro prison in the Peruvian capital Lima to Piedras Gordas in the desert outside the city. The prison is notorious for its strict regime. Mr Jiménez says the authorities have not responded to a request to be transferred back.

One might want to ask Attorney Jiménez a question … do either Stephany Flores or Natalee Holloway have the choice of where they want to live? I didn’t think so.

Meanwhile, Beth Holloway continues to inform other and honor the memory of Natalee Holloway so that others may learn from what tragically happened to her daughter.

Nearly seven years later, Beth Holloway continues to honor Natalee’s memory by speaking out about travel safety, while promoting organizations to aid families whose loved ones are missing and educating those who travel abroad. On Thursday night at the Bristol Public Library, she held a group of more than 100 spellbound while describing her journey through tragedy.

She recounted the nightmarish search for her missing daughter, the indifference and lack of cooperation from foreign law enforcement and the encounters with prime suspect Joran van der Sloot.

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.

Alabama Judge Decides Today Whether Natalee Holloway Will be Declared Dead … Aruba Remains Silent & Provides No Justice

Will Natalee Holloway be declared legally dead?

An Alabama judge is to consider today whether Natalee Holloway, the 18 year old Mountain Brook teen who went missing while vacationing in Aruba in 2005, will be legally declared dead. Dave Holloway, Natalee’s father, filed the petition to declare her dead in June, 2011. Meanwhile,  Beth Holloway, his ex-wife and the teen’s mother, opposed this measure, saying in a September statement she “will always hope and pray for Natalee’s safe return.”  So what are the reason why after all this time that there is a push for Natalee to be legally declared dead?  Dave Holloway’s attorney has claimed the petition was filed because he (Dave) “is seeking closure for his family.” However, it has also been reported by WBRC, that Dave Holloway wants to use $2,000 of a college fund he had created for his daughter for her younger brother.

A probate judge may make the decision at a presumption of death hearing in a Jefferson County courtroom in Birmingham Thursday afternoon.

Holloway vanished in 2005 while on a graduation trip to Aruba. No one has been charged in the case.

Holloway was 18 when she was last seen in the early hours of May 30, 2005, leaving an Oranjestad nightclub with Joran van der Sloot and two other men.

This is one of those sad and tragic decisions that a family has to eventually make where there are no winners. It is yet just another scab being ripped off the wound that both Dave, Beth and Natalee’s family has suffered at the hand of Aruba and Joran Van der Sloot. The impact of Van der Sloot’s actions and Aruba’s inability and unwillingness to provide justice resonates to the present day. Just ask the families of Natalee Holloway and Stephany Flores in Peru.  Just one day after Joran Van der Sloot plead guilty to the murder of Stephany Flores, the courts will decide on the death of another one of Van der Sloot’s victims where he was the prime suspect.
