RUDY CROES M.I.A. DURING REMKES' VISIT TO ARUBA


Rudy! Come out, come out, wherever you are...



ARUBA – The Dutch minister of Home Affairs, Johan Remkes (VVD) has approved the assistance of the Netherlands in the investigation on the disapp
earance of the American teenager Natalee Holloway. That happened in the absence of Justice-minister Rudy Croes (MEP). It was Croes that requested Dutch assistance.


Remkes indicated at the end of the meeting with prime minister Nelson Oduber (MEP) that Aruba has agreed with the conditions that the Netherlands had associated with the assistance. (I wonder what 'conditions' those are?)


Specialists of the Korps Landelijke Politie Diensten (National Police Corps, KLPD) will lead the location and will also get total tracing authorities. The KLPD-detectives are allowed to carry weapons and will get accessibility to all technical tracing-means. “So the team can start”, said Remkes.


The detectives will travel to Aruba in a few weeks. The minister couldn’t say yet how many detectives will come to Aruba; he thinks between 5 and 15. He expects the investigation to last for weeks and not months. The Netherlands will pay for the costs. Remkes denied the rumours about discontinuing the services of the Detective Collaboration Team (RST). He said that they are looking into improving the effectiveness of the RST. Aruba can have an important role in this study. Remkes was kind of irritated about the fact that minister Rudy Croes was not present at the meeting, during which they also talked about the improvement of the Aruban police. Remkes said that if Croes wanted to give his opinion, he should have been present.


Remkes didn’t want to comment on a future structure with possibly one attorney general and one police corps for Aruba and the islands of the current Neth. Antilles. “The conversations on this are just orientated. That will happen more often in the coming months. The Netherlands will just have a listening position in these conversations. If you want to choose for a different structure, you will have to be sure that it is also better for the people.”

The theory behind Rudy Croes's absence is that he was doing his lip service to help the tourism. Rudy had no intention whatsoever to investigate Joran's involvement of Natalee's murder. The Dutch Homeland Security minister Johan Remkes happened to run into Oduber and strikes a deal.

i hope the dutch armed police will have free reign to summarily execute people who lie to them. otherwise they won't get very far at all.

Seems a little late to be tracing, particularly after Choose a Name was burned to the ground and so much time has conveniently been allowed to go by.

The suggestion of "Dutch" with the notion of "integrity" is quite difficult to swallow given the outrageous obstructions to justice that took place under the scruitny of world wide media coverage.
Such arrogance and intent to deceive reveals one of the most serious violations of human rights ever seen inflicted upon a tourist - visiting what is supposed to have been a 'friendly' territory!
