Joran van der Sloot's new home: He's in familiar surroundingsTopics: Natalee Holloway
Now that Joran van der Sloot has escaped his Aruba predicament involving Natalee Holloway's disappearance and is now in Holland, I can't help but notice how comfortable he's going to be in his new surroundings.
Here is an article about a cover up of a rape and murder of an 10-year-old Dutch girl that extends tentacles of guilt into the Netherlands' parliament. DNA evidence was withheld in the case by the Dutch Forensics Institute (DFI).
And while we're on the matter of sex, apparently there is insufficient monitoring of companies involved in the sex trade in certain parts of the country, at least that's what the national rapporteur on human smuggling says in a new report given to Justice Minister Piet Hein Donner on Monday. Of the 148 suspects arrested in 2003 for forcing women to work as prostitutes, 22 worked for legal brothels, the report claims.
Also, I can't help but wonder what Joran will be majoring in at the Dutch university!

This article states that the prosecutor attempted to block Joran van der Sloot's departure for Holland. The prosecutor argued that by traveling to Holland, Joran was violating the court's order to be available to investigators. The prosecution even stated that they wanted to question van der Sloot on Tuesday 6 September 2005, but the judge rejected the request, and an appeal court has already supported the court's position.
Clearly, the Aruban justice system is fed up with the lawyer-games of the prosecutor, if an appeals court has decided on such a short notice. I think attorney Karin Jenssen will soon be unemployed, and I suspect a review of her administration of this prosecution will not be likely to yield any references for future service in the Dutch government.
