In an exclusive interview with Greta Van Susteren last night, Joran Van Der Sloot told Greta a new version of what happened to Natalee Holloway. Joran was the prime suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway over three years ago when she disappeared on a beach in Aruba.
Joran previously claimed that Natalee was drunk and passed out on the beach, he also claimed at one point to dropping her off at the hotel where she was staying. His story has changed numerous times, and therefore how can we believe this new tale he is telling? The latest rendition of what happened to Natalee involves him selling her to a man who wanted her for the sex slave market, or a human trafficker.
Joran claims that the mystery man with no identity paid him $9600 upfront and pulled Natalee into a boat and took her away to never be seen again. Joran later disclosed that the mystery man with whom he has no way to contact also paid him another $10,000 to keep Joran from talking to anyone about what happened. Joran said that after the second time he was arrested, the mystery man emailed him and gave him a wire number for a Western Union transaction to pick up at a local office. Joran claims that is the only money he ever received, that in fact he did try to contact the mystery man at the email address he had contacted him through previously but never received a response. This leads us to believe that had he been given further opportunities to profit from the tragedy of Natalee he would have. Joran has proven himself to be a very disturbed individual, he cannot keep his story straight and he continues to torment her family and friends with his lies.
The story became even more interesting as Greta inquired as to the relationship Joran has with his parents. Apparently he no longer speaks with his family. At the time this interview was conducted Joran was in Asia. Joran also claims that his father paid off two police officers in the amount of $50,000 to keep quiet about what they knew regarding this case. The officer’s names have not been released. It was around this point in the interview that Greta asked Joran if he would corroborate the story with the authorities to help find Natalee. Greta said that she would incur any costs or time and effort involved with tracking down this mystery man or others who were involved in Natalee’s disappearance. Joran became irritated and said he was not going to corroborate the story and did not want to continue the interview. After taking a break Joran decided to return to the interview with Greta. Joran acted shifty the entire time he spoke with Greta, he acted like someone who was lying.
Even more concerning is the fact that people have supposedly known about what Joran did and took no action to alert the authorities. Joran admitted to Greta that he told his teacher at school what he had done. The teacher advised Joran to do the right thing and tell the truth. Joran also told his attorney which was of course protected by attorney client privilege. My question is this, why did the teacher not come forward if he had this information about Natalee Holloway, how could he ignore the pleas from Natalee’s family and friends to bring Natalee home safe again? With the poor credibility we have seen from Joran in the past, it makes it almost impossible to believe anything he has to tell us.
At the end of the interview and show, Greta said that shortly after she interviewed Joran he called her to tell her that he has once again lied, that Natalee had not been sold into the sex slave market but that he had no idea what happened to her. There must be some justice in this case, how can this man be allowed to disillusion the public in such a way, by telling false tales as to what really happened to Natalee. We have heard so many versions of what Joran calls the truth, yet we cannot trust anything that he says. He apparently has something to hide; otherwise he would have no problem staying in his own country, instead of running off to Asia.
