25 August 2006 AMSTERDAM — Aruba has asked the Netherlands to take over the leadership of the stalled investigation into the disappearance of US school graduate Natalee Holloway. Dutch minister Atzo Nicolaï has indicated a willingn
ess to help the investigation. "But we still have to look at the precise agreements under which we would work," he said on Thursday. Nicolaï (Government Reform and Kingdom Relations) made his comments at the end of his official visit to the autonomous Dutch island in the Caribbean. The request for assistance was made by Aruban Justice Minister Rudy Croes.

Aruba has been battered by negative publicity in the US for over a year since Holloway, 18, vanished on the night of 30 May 2005. She was on holiday with friends to celebrate their graduation and was last seen leaving a local tourist venue with three youths.

Police on Aruba arrested a total of 10 people so far in the investigation but all have been released. Dutch teenager Joran van der Sloot, one of the youths with Holloway on the night she disappeared, was the main suspect for many months. He continues to deny harming her in any way. Holloway's family doesn't believe him.

Her mother Beth Twitty has led a chorus of criticism from the US of the way the local authorities have handled the case. There have even been calls for Americans to boycott the popular tourist destination. Repeated searches of the island have failed to find any trace of her, though investigators said early on they believed she is dead. At one stage dutch F-16 jets, fitted with special cameras, were used in a futile attempt to find her remains. Aruba's new request goes much further as it proposes giving Dutch officers investigative powers and their own office. They would also be allowed to carry weapons.

Croes wants the Dutch national police service KLPD to lead the investigation. Dutch Interior Minister Johan Remkes, who is responsible for the police, will discuss the matter further when he visits Aruba next week.

That comes from the Chinese Hong Kong Police Department (CHKPD). The trade defecite between China and Holland is so huge that the Queen had to mortgage Aruba to pay the interests on the World Bank loans. The diminshing Aruba tourism is taking a toll on Hague. The Kingdom is on the verge of collape. The Queen is a lavish spender. She emptied the Dutch Treasury and spent it all on the weight loss and extreme makeover program. The Queen is getting a new face transplant and blonde hair scalp. She will be young 18 sexy blonde again. The Chinese Trading Company wants all the Joranians out out out. And the Dutch Police are asked to do the dirty job. The KLPD Chief said all the painted stones will be uprooted and examined. He believed Natalee's DNA were still there to be lifted using the latest FBI forensic technologies. They planned to use the Chinese Water Clock to get all the truth out of Joran. Joran is not allowed to return to Holland. He has flunk his classes, all Fs. He needs to remain on the island, remains on call for the prison invitations. No doubt about it. The Dutch National Police will do the job and get it done by the end of the summer tourists season. They don't want to look bad to the CHKPD. Or the Chinese Hong Kong Police Department will come in to kick Oduber's ass and crack the nuts on Joran. You know what I mean. I work with the Dutch and Chinese for a long time. I know the Taipans mean business. All the Joran garbages need to be out! out! out! said the Chinese. Boycott Dutch! Boycott Aruba! God Bless America!
