HAUNTED by memories of childhood abuse and years spent as a sex slave, Sarah Forsyth kept the painful memories bottled up. But today her tragic tale can be told for the first time. Sexually abused from the age of three, Sarah managed to rebuild her life as a nursery nurse and applied for a job in a creche in Amsterdam. But within minutes of stepping off the plane in Holland the then-19-year-old’s life began to fall apart.

Sarah was a victim of sex-trafficking.

Her passport was taken away and she was forced at gunpoint to work as a prostitute in the red-light district while being fed a constant supply of cocaine and cannabis. After a year working in the sleazy den, Newcastle-born Sarah, now 33, found the strength to fight back and escape.

Now she has written a book about her harrowing experiences from being a young girl in and out of care homes, then forced into prostitution and her subsequent addiction to morphine and methadone. Sarah, who lives in Gateshead with her civil partner, Tracy, admits in her book, Slave Girl, that she used to have a £500-a-day drug habit.

She said: “I was an ordinary British girl. I was kidnapped and sold into sex slavery. I was abused as a child and then tricked into the sex trade as an adult. “I have been beaten, raped and forced — at gunpoint — to have sex with hundreds of men. “I have been made to watch the rape and murder of my friends and I have endured a £500-a-day drug addiction. But I am lucky . . . I survived.”

Investigative journalist Roger Cook, who traveled around the world exposing crooks, took an interest in Sarah’s story when it came out in court in 1997, and it was covered on ITV’s The Cook Report. Sarah, who volunteers at a centre for deprived and disadvantaged children, said she often thought of the girls who didn’t survive in Amsterdam.

In her book she wrote: “Every day I sit here and face what I was and try to accept what I have become, but however difficult my life may be it is nothing to the hell they are still enduring today. “This is not a book of misery or of grief, it is a book of hope. “My life was saved. And for those girls whose lives weren’t, I can only pray for them and let them know that I’m thinking about them and still surviving.”

Seems that instead of "laying low", Joran is winning poker tournaments. Doesn't seem as if he's really trying to hide. His head is wanted on a plate by many, yet he flaunts in public, winning money, doing drugs, living the life of a wanna-be-playboy-murderer-loser.


This piece of human waste should be detained and questioned for his "alleged" role in the sex trafficking attempt that was caught on video by Peter de Vries! What ever came of that?! NOTHING!



Translation from Bablefish:

According to Pokercity has played of of the ditch since January almost daily on PartyPoker, of the largest playing poker proposer on Internet.




Has There REALLY Been a Difference
Between Hans Mos and original prosecutor Karin Janssen?

After Hans Mos leaves the prosecutor's office in Aruba, who will take his place? Will that person make their empty promises to "solve the case" in order to end the ugly shadow that has been hovering over them since May, 2005?

Karin Janssen - USA TODAY - 06/30/05

“They spoke about the situation that when there is no body you don’t have a case, and that was already in the first day after the disappearance,” Janssen said. Janssen said that the elder van der Sloot had obstructed the investigation by asking a friend of Joran, who had been interrogated by police, what he had told them. Janssen told MSNBC that he was arrested because investigators believed he was also a suspect in the disappearance.

Karin Janssen - ‘The Abrams Report’ - June 30, 2005

JANSSEN: The father has spoken with those three suspects, and he said he give them some legal advice, but I think the advices were going further than that. They spoke about the situation that when there is no body, you don‘t have a case. And that was already in the first day after the disappearance.

When one looks over the pattern of her involvement in the Natalee Holloway case, we have to ask did Karin Janssen do a "friend a favor" or purposely buy time for the suspects to rehearse their lies, erase all evidence, change statements, allow some statements to become missing and therefore was she directly involved in a cover-up?

We remember it was Karin Janssen that asked the most unfathomable questions of Beth:
  • If she was related to Hitler
  • About life insurance policies

All the while maintaining a position of non-disclosure to the family that were so desperate to know what happened to the victim in this case, their daughter Natalee.

...It can be concluded that given all the information Karin Janssen had available to her, the notion that there was good "cause for suspicion" was knowingly false, and the fact that the guards were still pursued, in light of ALE and prosecutors knowing that no drop off ever occurred, suggests collusion between the ALE and Karin Janssen for the sole purpose of denying Natalee's family the truth of what had been inflicted upon their child, and covering up for the real perpetrators: Joran van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe, Satish Kalpoe and Paulus van der Sloot.

...Karin Janssen and the other Aruban officials continue, even today, along with the bloggers on-line, in planting lies and disrupting forward progress in this case.

The fact that Prosecutor Karin Janssen and polis detectives Dennis Jacobs and Jan van der Straten, all in charge of the investigation, were not pursuing the facts, or the surveillance tapes that demonstrated Natalee never return to the hotel; while ignoring all the contradictions of the statements by Joran and Kalpoe brothers paints a very clear picture indeed. It would seem impossible for any competent professional to come up with the strategical course that Karin Janssen utilized and not realize she was involved in a collusion to cover up these crimes.


Promised to "solve the case"; yet refused pertinent information offered by Greta van Susteren because he "didn't work weekends" and had a "vacation coming up. He also refused to believe or even acknowledge the two successful polygraphs taken in the United States by a witness who saw Joran the night Natalee went missing. He even refused to return the calls of Holloway Attorney John Q. Kelly.

Also see previous post "What a Real Prosecutor Would Do".

So my question is...what new clown will replace the circus?

February 17, 2009


ORANJESTAD — Hans Mos resigns his position as Chief Public Prosecutor. As a result of the statements in the leaked-out VNO-report, Justice-minister Rudy Croes has supposedly ordered him and also prosecutor Kasper van der Schaft to leave.

This appeared in this morning’s daily newspaper Trouw. It’s not clear what the leak-out exactly has to do with the dismissal. Based on their contract, both Mos and Van der Schaft had still another year in office. In a conversation with the Wereldomroep, minister Plenipotentiary in the Netherlands, Frido Croes denies the fact that the early departure of Mos has something to do with the leaked-out VNO-report. He says that Van der Schaft leaves because ‘his contract has run out’.

Public Prosecution's Office (OM)-spokesperson Ann Angela has only confirmed yesterday that Mos leaves in the summer. According to an official statement of the OM, Harm Brouwer, chairman of the Dutch College of procurators general and with that the highest boss of the OM in the Netherlands, Mos was offered two positions with the OM in the Netherlands last Monday. Mos will decide on one of these positions before this coming March 1st.

Dear Madam Secretary:

In a recent news article you were quoted as saying that the Netherlands has done “everything possible” in the case of Natalee Holloway, missing in Aruba since May 2005. The url to this article follows:


As an American concerned about this tragedy, I find this statement frankly astonishing. I therefore wish to submit for your consideration some additional measures that the Netherlands could undertake, particularly since, I understand, Aruba has handed over to it jurisdiction over this case:

Help provide funding for the search offshore Aruba. I have never understood why the financial burden for this mission should be the responsibility of the family and of American supporters and volunteers. Texas Equusearch, as you are aware, has carried out efforts in this regard. Before funding was exhausted, it had identified a number of sites of particular interest. Since the initial search was made possible by American generosity, perhaps the Dutch government could assist with the investigation of an obvious crime that took place in Aruba.

Refer to the Dutch body responsible for legal propriety the behavior of Paulus van der Sloot, who continues to work for the Aruban government despite having provided contradictory explanations for his statements and behavior at the time of Natalee's disappearance.

As you are aware, the Aruban government itself overturned his request for additional “damages” following his arrest on these grounds. One would think that this prima facie impropriety would suffice for disbarment: while apparently it does not on Aruba, the Dutch bar may take an interest. Investigate the activities of Jan van der Straaten, chief of police on Aruba at the time of Natalee's disappearance and a known friend of Paulus van der Sloot. It was van der Straaten who said he knew that Natalee was dead “because I've seen the evidence and you haven't”; to my understanding, none of this evidence has been produced. That alone casts suspicion on this statement. Any full-scale investigation of this tragedy must include the sworn testimony of van der Straaten; it is inconceivable that no such testimony has yet been demanded.

Natalee's father, Mr. Dave Holloway, said in his book “Aruba” that narcotics detective Dennis Jacobs (after asking “How much money have you got?”) warned him that drugging of drinks at Carlos 'n' Charlies was known to occur.

One presumes that Aruba, where American tourism at the time accounted for 80 percent of the economy, would have some interest in protecting foreign visitors. Yet apparently this situation was tolerated. Perhaps the Netherlands might investigate this, as well as why a narcotics detective was assigned to a missing-person case. The testimony that various persons in the Netherlands have already provided might be reviewed.

In one case, a person tied to the main suspect, Joran van der Sloot, was said to be unable to cause harm to her because he was homosexual. The logic of this statement is elusive. Aruba has said that it has given jurisdiction over this case to the Netherlands. That being so, perhaps as a gesture of good will, attorneys for Natalee's family might be allowed to inspect the Aruban police files. I believe that such access now is allowed only if the case is closed. A review of security tapes from the casino where Natalee was seen in the company of Joran van der Sloot would be in order. It seems that parts of those tapes were made public over a period of time, but the full tapes apparently have not been released.

In one shot, a person with a strong resemblance to Paulus van der Sloot appears to be addressing Natalee. Aruba has said that that person was an (unnamed) cook on the island, but the visual identification of that figure with van der Sloot is persuasive. Certainly the Netherlands could resolve this question. The family previously announced a reward for information leading to a solution of this case. Perhaps the Netherlands could contribute to such a reward and help publicize it.

I also wish to remind you of the case of Amy Bradley, an American who in March 1998 vanished from a cruise ship as it was docking in Curacao. The previous day, her ship had stopped in Aruba and certain crew members were urging her to go with them to Carlos 'n' Charlies, the same bar from which Natalee vanished. It is not known whether common factors or persons were involved in the two cases, but photographs, sightings, and other evidence strongly suggests that Amy remains alive, in a situation of duress. Meanwhile, Curacao seems as indifferent to the family's plight as is Aruba towards Natalee.

Should you be interested, I will gladly suggest many more ways in which the Netherlands could act. I send these few merely to show that your statement that the Netherlands has “done everything possible” is anything but accurate. As I write this letter, a news story says that Dutch scientists are testing a pill that erases painful memories. No such pill exists for the families of Natalee Holloway or Amy Bradley, nor does any pill exist that, in the absence of new initiatives, will convince Americans that the Dutch government is devoted to uncovering the truth and prosecuting the guilty in these cases.

The clear message from the Netherlands

ORANJESTAD/DEN HAAG – The Netherlands has ‘reasonably’ done everything a country can do to solve the case of the disappeared American teenager Natalee Holloway, says state secretary Ank Bijleveld-Schouten (Kingdom Relations, CDA) in a letter to the Lower House that have asked for more information. Holloway disappeared in May of 2005 and the case is still not solved.

There are currently two investigations going in the disappearance case: the criminal investigation into the disappearance of the teenager and an investigation by the national detective into the allegations of Justice-minister Rudy Croes in the early stages of the criminal investigation.

It was in December of last year that Croes accused the former chief of police Jan van der Straaten of having blown the investigation in the first ten days. He did this in consideration of his friendship with Paul van der Sloot, the father of Joran van der Sloot, who is still the prime suspect.

The Public Prosecutor doesn’t give any details during this investigation, writes Bijleveld to the Lower House. Bijleveld explains all ‘the efforts’ the Netherlands had done in the Holloway-case until now. Upon request of Aruba, Dutch militaries have assisted with the search in the early stages. Dutch sniffer dogs and F-16’s with special camera were also put in. Aruba has again requested the assistance of the Netherlands in September of 2006 and Dutch experts have tested the investigation in the Netherlands. This ‘revision’ provided sufficient clues to continue the investigation in Aruba. The Dutch team together with their Aruban colleagues performed in 2007 and 2008 a continued investigation into the still open scenarios. Bijleveld says that ‘all necessary means’ were put in, but have not led to solving the case. The Aruban police are still investigating the case at this moment.
