EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW from Aruba with Glenda Bondia Regarding Paulus Van der Sloot Death … Natalee Holloway, Joran Van der Sloot

Breaking News: Exclusive interview with Monkey News and the Paulus Van der Sloot death due to a cardiac arrest while playing tennis.

Hat Tip: Klaas

What did Paulus take to his grave? Seems that one person in Aruba thinks that Joran was innocent, even when not asked whether Paulus or Joran were guilty of anything. Enjoy!!!

Natalee Holloway:Paulus van der Sloot, father of Joran van der Sloot, dead of cardiac arrest

Breaking news out of Aruba. Paulus van der sloot, father of prime suspect in the Natalee Holloway case Joran van der Sloot, died this evening while playing tennis of a cardiac arrest.


UPDATE I: Paulus Van der Sloot Dies at the age of 57 from a cardiac arrest

Paulus Van der Sloot, the father of Joran Van der Sloot and the last person reported to have ever seen Alabama teen Natalee Holloway alive has died of a cardiac arrest while playing tennis in Aruba at the Tierra del Sol estate.

Media on Aruba are reporting that Paul van der Sloot, the father of the main suspect in the Natalee Holloway disappearance case, has died.

Joran van der Sloot’s father collapsed on Wednesday evening when playing tennis at the Tierra del Sol estate on the Dutch Caribbean island. Emergency service staff were unable to resuscitate him. Paul van der Sloot was aged 57.

His son Joran is still suspected of involvement in the disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway on Aruba in May 2005. The case was brought back into the limelight when crime reporter Peter R. de Vries secretly filmed Joran van der Sloot claiming that he had dumped Natalee’s body in the ocean. The potentially incriminating statement was not accepted as evidence by the court.


In the end there is a Justice that outweighs man’s justice

In a Dutch article from HvNL, De Vries discusses the death of Paulus Van der Sloot and talks about it was always his opinion that Joran Van der Sloot was responsible for Natalee Holloway’s disappearance and that his father, the recently deceased Paulus Van der Sloot helped his son hide her body.


UPDATE II: I chatted with Jossy Mansur early this morning via email and he was gracious enough to provide Scared Monkeys with the follwoing translation from their front page Diario article on Paulas Van der Sloot.

Paul Van der Sloot died last night
He was playing tennis and fell to the ground.

ORANJESTAD (AAN) The well-known lawyer Paul van der Sloot died last night. He was playing tennis and at a certain moment collapsed. The information that DIARIO has says that the ambulance came immediately to the site and started to reanimate him. He was placed in the ambulance and was taken to the hospital, but not much could be done to save his life. Mr. Paul van der Sloot was a lot in the local and international news some time back after his son, Joran van der Sloot, became a suspect in the case of the disappearance of the young American girl Nathallee Holloway. This may have had an effect on  his health. Peace to his remains and strength to his family.

Jossy Mansur, the managing editor of Diario also provided us with the following:

“Justice has a strange way of correcting irregularities committed in its name. In this particular case, Paul had the necessary information we needed to solve the case, but decided to take it with him to his tomb. His version (the true one) we will never know. And we can never depend on Joran to come clean with what happened to Natalee.

Yes, Paul died playing tennis yesterday afternoon. God forgive him!

Lifetime Movie Network: Natalee Holloway story … Missing in Aruba Since May 2005

The Lifetime Movie Network will be airing the Natalee Holloway story on Sunday, April 19, 2009 at 8 pm ET and 9 pm PT. Encores April 20 at 12 pm ET/PT.


LMN – Lifetime Movie Network

Scared Monkeys has followed the disappearance of Natalee Holloway from the beginning. The very first post regarding the disappearance of Natalee was entitled, This Can’t Be Good For Tourism, Where’s Natalee Holloway. The reason for this title was because from the outset of this crime we knew that Aruba would do everything to preserve their tourism as opposed to provide a competent investigations, answers and “Justice for Natalee.” Sadly, we were correct in our presumption as to this day Aruba has not tried any of the suspects, who were last seen with Natalee Holloway leaving Carlos N’ Charlie’s.

SM CnC close view

The Lifetime movie is based on Beth Holloway’s book, Loving Natalee: A Mother’s Testament of Hope and Faith.”

Aruba 3 suspects

Satish Kalpoe, Joran Van der Sloot and Deepak Kalpoe; last people ever seen with Natalee Holloway leaving Carlos N’ Charlie’s

Teenager Natalee Holloway vanished in 2005 while visiting Aruba on a senior class trip. In a passionate and relentless effort to discover the truth behind her daughter’s disappearance, Beth Holloway captured the nation’s attention by working tirelessly to solve the mystery that shattered her family’s life. Today, Holloway continues to speak publicly about the potential dangers of international travel. Her resolve and unwavering strength are at the center of this emotional story that takes viewers behind the headlines and into the heart of an extraordinary woman.

From the outset of Natalee’s disappearance Beth Holloway has embodied the strength, will and determination of mom’s across America who fight to the end when someone messes with their child. Never in a million years did Aruba, the government officials, the police or those responsible ever think that Beth would persevere.


In July 2005 when Beth Holloway and the family had met so many obstacles, we wrote the following inspirational post to Beth, ‘A Note to Beth: Don’t Give Up, Don’t Ever Give Up’. The continued stone walling efforts by the suspects, tourism and government officials and investigators were constant. It would have been easy and understandable to give up. Instead, Beth Holloway had only just begun.


All one needs to do is look at Natalee’s mom to understand and know what true courage is in the face of adversity. The strength that Beth has shown even when times were more difficult than others can only make one admire her as a mother and a person. I have never met Beth nor ever spoken to her although I wish I did have the privilege and opportunity. I would just like to take the moment to say that Tom, I and the many Scared Monkeys that have never met you are solidly behind you in support and hope.

When Natalee Holloway went missing and became the face of missing persons, she became everyone’s sister, daughter, grand daughter and cousin. In the process Beth Holloway became everyone’s mom and Aruba was permanently branded as corrupt and the face of missing persons crime.

Tracy Pollan to Play Beth Holloway in Lifetime TV Movie, The Natalee Holloway Story … As Aruba Hides Head in the Sand of Cover Up

Aruba you cannot hide your head in your sandy white beaches, Natalee Natalee_Holloway_121808Holloway’s story will be seen over and over and over … There is nothing like a good TV cable movie that has an unlimited shelf life to have people never forget what occurred in May of 2005 and the lack of justice provided to Natalee and her family.

Just when Aruba thought the Natalee Holloway story was going to go away, they will now have to face the fact that there will be a Lifetime movie directed by Mikael Salomon made of the events of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway and the subsequent botched investigation and cover up. Justice for Natalee … the further exposing of the corruption and nepotism that went on in Aruba to this day in providing a family no answers or “Justice for Natalee”.

The harrowing true story of a teenage girl who vanished while vacationing in Aruba is the backdrop of The Natalee Holloway Story, a Lifetime Movie Network original film about a mother’s search for truth and justice.


Tracy Pollan

Tracy Pollan, the wife of Michael J. Fox, has been tapped to play Beth Holloway in the Lifetime Movie Networks TV film, “The Natalee Holloway Story”. Tracy Pollan will play Beth Holloway, the mother of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway who went missing in Aruba in May 2005. The movie is based the book by Beth Holloway, “Loving Natalee: A Mother’s Testament of Hope and Faith.”

Pollan will play Twitty in the movie, which will spotlight her efforts to discover the truth about what happened to her daughter.

“Holloway,” from Sony Pictures Television, was written by Teena Booth. Judith Verno, Frank von Zerneck and Robert M. Sertner are executive producers, and Andrew Golov is a producer. The movie is set to go into production next month for an April premiere.

Coming soon to a TV screen near you will be the story of what happened to Natalee Holloway, the joke of what was called an investigation in Aruba and how the last three people ever to be seen with Natalee were allowed to get away without prosecution as Aruban law enforcement, prosecutors and officials turned a blind eye.

Joran Van der Sloot first said he lied about what had happened the night he was with Natalee Holloway because he was scared. That certainly did not stop him from lying to police and the media to this day. Lying is not a defense.

Rudy Croes Obstructed Justice: Minister Croes of Justice Finally Admits Natalee Holloway Case Messed Up by Nepotism, Blames van der Straten

So why has there been no “Justice for Natalee” in Aruba?

In the end those that have claimed their was an obstruction of justice, cover up and Aruba_Rudy_Croescorruption in Aruba in the investigation of Natalee Holloway were correct. Watch the following video of Aruban cover up and corruption.

Define irony? The Justice Minister of Aruba Rudy Croes obstructing justice in the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. Croes claims that Jan van der Straten intentionally messed up the case due to nepotism, yet Rudy Croes never came forward with this information until now. Beth and Dave Holloway would have been interested in Croes’ latest comment in June 2005. Instead, the Justice Minister of Aruba took part in the obstruction of justice for Natalee and her family by not coming forward. How could anyone in Aruba have allowed van der Straten to be the lead investigator in the case with such a conflict of interest as being friends of Paulus Van der Sloot, the father of the prime suspect in the case of Natalee’s disappearance?

 The Good Ship Aruba, its every rat for them self

Vanderbilt Aruba mayday

However, over three and a half years later after Natalee Holloway went missing and the case was purposely botched, the rats are fleeing the Goodship Aruba as they begin to turn on each other. Justice-minister Rudy Croes says that the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba was messed up by Jan van der Straten in the first ten days to help his friend Paul van der Sloot to protect his suspected son Joran. However, after all this time why did Rudy Croes finally say something? Could it be a guilty conscience? Could it be he finally wanted to do the right thing? No, not it the slightest. Like everything in Aruba, Rudy Croes makes these accusations after 3 1/2 years because of self-serving political reasons.

Joran_Paulus VDS

Justice-minister Rudy Croes accuses nepotism as to the reason why van der Straten helped his friend Paulus Van der Sloot to protect his suspected son Joran Van der Sloot. However, the only reason why Justice-minister Rudy Croes is coming forward with these accusations at this time against Jan van der Straten is because Croes now that he feels attacked by the former chief of police.

Natalee Holloway Missing in Aruba: Justice Minister Rudy Croes Says Van der Straten Delayed the Start of Investigations to Protect Van der Sloot (Cronyism & Cover Up)

Breaking News … there was cronyism and a cover up in Aruba in the investigation of missing Natalee Holloway.

Really? There was a cover up and obstruction in the case of missing Natalee Holloway in Aruba? Say it isn’t so. How could anyone not have come to that conclusion?

Nearly three and a half years later after Alabama teen Natalee Holloway went missing on Aruba, Aruban Justice Minister Rudy Croes has finally come out and stated what all of us knew all along. Aruba’s Justice Minister Rudy Croes stated that police commissioner Jan van der Straten obstructed the investigation of missing Natalee Holloway in order to protect his friend Paulus Van der Sloot, the father of suspect Joran Van der Sloot. How could any rational thinking person not have determined that there was an orchestrated cover up in this case when the last three people, Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, were allowed to roam free and two black security guards were immediately arrested to take the fall?


Jan Van der Straten

Remember how we said there is a little truth in every lie that comes from a sociopath? We go back to the VIDEO in a recent interview where Joran Van der Sloot stated there were police bribes. Was it the police that Joran named in the video? Probably not. Were there actual police bribes and cover ups that obstructed the investigation? According to Rudy Croes there certainly was.

Even farther back, remember when Joran Van der Sloot was once again on video with Dutch crime investigatior Peter R. de Vries when Joran Van der Sloot out of the clear blue stated that his parents had no involvement in the disposal of Natalee Holloway’s body. Interestingly enough, no one ever asked him the question.

Missing in Aruba: Joran Van der Sloot Now Says he Sold Natalee Holloway to a Venezuelan Man Who Wanted a Blonde Girl for $10K

Joran Van der Sloot, the sociopath is back …

Did Joran Van der Sloot just admit to kidnapping and human trafficking last night in an interview On the Record? Joran Van der Sloot may have admitted to more crimes that could land him in jail for a longer period of time than just a murder charge. There are not too many people that Joran Van der Sloot did not implicate in criminal or unethical behavior. If we are to believe the story that Joran Van der Sloot provided Greta Van Susteren then we are to believe the following:


  • Joran’s lawyer knew from the beginning that his client committed the crimes of kidnapping and human trafficking while stating that his client was innocent and had nothing to do with Natalee’s disappearance.
  • That Paulus Van der Sloot was complicit in the cover up of his son’s crime and that he bribed Aruban police officers.
  • That at least two Aruban police officers solicited and received bribes to keep quiet.
  • That his teacher from his school was complicit in a cover up and obstructed justice knowing what Joran had done in selling Natalee.
  • Deepak and Satish Kalpoe were accessories to the crime against Natalee Holloway and were paid $1000 for their participation in the crime. 
  • That Deepak, Satish and his American attorneys knowingly obstructed justice and solicited the promise of $1 million in order for a quit pro quo for Joran to remain quiet and not say anything damning against the Kalpoe’s.
  • Joran admitted to premeditated kidnapping, human trafficking and potentially accessory to murder if his “mystery” man killed Natalee.

To discuss the case, get further updates and to provide your own opinion go to Scared Forum: Natalee Holloway. We will be breaking up the story in to many different part as there is just too much information to put in one story. Updates to follow.

After all the stories and lies that he has given to police. After all the stories and lies he has given to the media in past interviews. After all the admissions he has been caught in by secret filmed video, Joran Van der Sloot now has a new story to tell as to what happened to Natalee Holloway. In an interview with Greta Van Susteren Joran Van der Sloot now claims that he did not leave Natalee Holloway on the  white sand beaches of Aruban that fateful night in 2005 but instead sold her to a Venezuelan man for $10,000.


Joran Vander Sloot becomes uncomfortable in interview when discussion moves to his father Paulus and the reference of giving bribes to Aruban police officers.

Video from Fox News “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren:

Joran Van der Sloot, the last reported person ever to see Natalee Holloway now tells the world that he sold Natalee Holloway to an unknown man in Aruba for $10K. He claims that an man that he met in an Aruban casino who is some where between the age of 30 to 40 offered Joran money for as was stated, “bring him a blonde girl.”
