Despite a number of interesting items taking place Friday and today, there has been nothing conclusive reported in the news anywhere. Friday, then again today, Paulus van der Sloot and family were in court pleading for their damages, stemming from the false arrest of Paulus.
The Bon Dia Newspaper is providing whatever coverage of Paulus' case that they can achieve, given the secret nature of these kinds of proceedings in Aruba.
The Bon Dia Newspaper is reporting that Joran van der Sloot's lawyer, Antonia Carlo, is requesting documentation from the prosecution.
From my limited translation ability of the romance languages (French), it appears what Attorney Carlo is requesting is the results of the manipulated tapes from the Dr. Phil Show, derived by the Dutch Forensic Institute (DFI). Attorney Carlo motions for a declaratory judgment from the court to have the Public Affairs Minister surrender a copy of those findings. Clearly, this request of the court has far reaching civil implications. It would appear that the foundation of lawsuit extravaganza is building in Aruba against the Dr. Phil Show. Some of our posters over the weekend have hinted about this development. Apparently, they were correct.
Another reason for the declaratory judgment request is to present the underhanded tactics employed against his client by the Twitty-Holloway camp and their associates in order to discredit them (all of them) as reliable witnesses for anything. I believe the very fact that the leading, accredited, forensic entity in the Kingdom of the Netherlands declares the tapes to have been manipulated should be sufficient grounds to extinguish all testimony, originating from any of the Twitty-Holloway camp and their purported gaggle of experts. The DFI's results constitute a shot-through-the-heart of the Twiity-Holloway camp's discrediting efforts concerning the suspects. With the DFI results in hand, Carlo might be able to sway the court into dismissing his client, and the Kalpoe Bothers, as a suspects entirely. One should be able to surmise the trajectory of Carlo's future, legal agenda from that point onward.
Another Bon Dia article announces a turnaround in the Isla Refinery. A possibility prognosticated in one of our past editorials in association with possible inputs from Hushang Ansary of the Parmer Capital Corporation.

New Tip In Holloway Disappearance Begins New Searches

UPDATED: 7:43 pm CST January 16, 2006
A new lead in the Natalee Holloway disappearance has started a flurry of activity on the island of Aruba.
Beth Twitty, Holloway's mother, has confirmed reports that investigators are now acting on a new lead and searching the tip of the island near the lighthouse. The area is not far away from where Holloway was staying the night she disappeared.
This new investigation is going on as members of the Texas-based Equusearch are negotiating for permission to bring in deep-water diving equipment to the island.
Twitty said Equusearch wants to explore deeper waters off the Aruban coast.
Greta of Fox News interviews Julia Renfro, via phone, who confirms that a new lead came in. She verified that some 50 uniformed officers and police cadets were probing the sand dunes with long poles near the lighthouse in a grid fashion. What the lead was or what the police were searching for remains unknown. Julia mentioned that the same area was last searched in October 2005. Police Chief Dompig was confirmed at the scene.
Tim Miller came on next, via phone, and confirmed that he met with Police Chief Dompig. He claims having received a green light to do his thing on the island. Tim expressed that he was pleased with the meeting, but he avoided any discussion of the details from the meeting. In closing his interview with Greta, Tim refers to this upcoming adventure in 1000 feet of water as the last effort of the case.
Beth Twitty comes on again expressing her gut feeling that the dunes, currently under probe, were a suspicious area. Her suspicions for Steve Croes gets revisited, because he had access to a boat. Lastly, Beth, reading from her fantasy diary, reveals that Joran's teacher stated that Joran described what he did to Natalee in his school the next day. When asked by Greta about whether or not the Aruban authorities investigated the comments of the teacher, Beth, once again, denies any knowledge of any investigation into the statements of the teacher. It seems all Beth knows is the words she wrote in her diary. Whether those words have any factualness to them is a mystery to her.
Search For Holloway Resumes In Aruba - News - MSNBC.com
A Texas-based dive team is back in Aruba Friday to help search for missing Mountain Brook teen Natalee Holloway. The group plans to search an area three to five miles off the island's coast, where the water is between 800 to 1,000 feet deep.
This latest search comes after Aruba's police commissioner revealed Holloway might be inside a fish trap dropped deep into the water.
This is a repeat of earlier reports. It seems all this activity resemble more a last ditch effort to clear up the very last leads of the case in order to close it.
