Well, I think this would be an interesting topic now.

I usually don't start any new topics, but since this is some hot news all over the world, then why not?

Sunday, our crime journalist/reporter, Peter R. de Vries is going to explain everything on our channel SBS 6, 9.30 pm Dutch time. I reckon this programme will be broadcasted abroad also.

Natalie's mom is already in Holland, so it must be something really serious...

It is said that Joran confessed to a "friend" of his, which is recorded on tape.

Latest news however: "I only joked, because he wanted to hear this. I know it was stupid, but my confession is false."

Discuss.

1) A secretly taped 'confession' is not legal evidence, due to the high degree of manipulation possible.
2) Peter R. De Vries has been convicted of criminal defamation before: his "absolutely foolproof cracking of cases" turns out wrong far more often than right.
3) He was previously employed with De Telegraaf, noted as Holland's lowest-quality newspaper
4) Just because Joran van der Sloot is a complete asshole, it doesn't necessarily mean that he is a murderer.
5) Peter R. De Vries is just scavenging for media-attention.

They want to crack the case? Put REAL detectives on it, not some phoney media-horney scumbag.

i dont get you! i only meant that i agree with wath you said, becaue if Joran van der sloot was innocent, he wouldnt do such a thing as throwing wine in peter r de vries his face. i dont understand how you come to talk about 'gay'? does that have anything to do with what i said? no

OK...breaking up the previous tangent that is better confined to MSN rather than on these boards (HINT HINT) I am going to return to the topic at hand.

My own personal opinion is that Joran is guilty of the crime. He was the last person to see her alive, has been uncooperative with the police, and gets testy whenever he is questioned about the case. If he truly is innocent and just "Left her on the beach" as he claims, he has nothing to hide. He can be completely honest with the police (both in Aruba and in Holland) and they would quickly dismiss him from their suspicion. But every time the case is re-opened, they always re-arrest the same people...him and the two brothers he was with. To me, it seems like a case of they know that he did it, but they cannot prove it in a court of law.

As far as this video confession goes....as Caspar pointed out, this is not going to be admissible in court. At least in the US, confessions of crimes are only valid when they are obtained by police, and even then only in strictly monitored situations, with a lot of attention to detail, because the results of confessing to a crime are so damaging. I'm sure it works the same way in The Netherlands. I don't know anything about this journalist who supposedly obtained the confession, but I am wary of all journalists who do this kind of work; at the end of the day these journalists need to get paid, and to do that they must get the story. This means there is no motivation for them to not spin the situation in such a way that it is better for them in the end.

As for her mom being in The Netherlands...this doesn't surprise me. She's a grieving mother who still holds out hope that justice will be served in the case. She is on a crusade for justice for her daughter, and thus she will be willing to cling to anything at all, no matter how preposterous it is, if it gives her the hope she needs.

It will indeed be an interesting TV show; but I don't think it will have an impact on the case itself. They need hard evidence that is admissible in court; Joran can tell whoever he wants that he killed her, but it doesn't mean anything if the court cannot use it as evidence in the case. And with his father working in the legal sector (he's a judge, isn't he?) he knows this.

It actually is legal evidence in this case... If the police would have done this, it wouldn't have been legal evidence. But if someone else makes a tape like this, it is legal evidence. Though just a confession isn't enough evidence to take someone in. No (other) proof is no case. You still can't be charged for hiding a body, if it's not sure if the person is dead or not.

The good thing might be that this so called confession possibly might open the door to new evidence. Let's hope they find some new traces.

True... but after yesterday, no-one doubts anymore if he's able to do it or not. He just cares about himself and his money. If he's not the murderer, then he does belong in a mental hospital.

For me it has always been clear that Joran knew more about this case. Like Maggie said, an innocent person doesn't need to lie. Joran did several times, even in this 'confession'. That Daury person - who according to Joran helped him to dump the body into the Ocean - wasn't even in Aruba back then.

Joran knows more about this case... but I think he'll get away with it. Frustrating it is.

Peter R. de Vries likes to get attention.. that's for sure. But he solved a lot of cases in the past. And he might have made some mistakes in the past, he always gives cases new impulses. Casper says that he's just doing it for the money or attention (which might be partly true), but I do believe that he really wants to solve the case as well.

For Maggie and all the others... two short pieces of the show yesterday:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEb62RNKIsU

Joran: "That's it.. Something happened there."

Patrick: "Of course something happened.. she's gone."

Joran: "Yes and... the ocean is huge you know."

Patrick: "Man, of course the ocean is huge."

Joran: "I think I've been lucky that no-one found her. Because if they find her, I'm doomed."

Patrick: "Why?"

Joran: "Well, it's just like that"...."When they have a body they can start a case."... "Then they still don't have any proof but I will be taken in again."

Patrick: "I don't know... only if the traces point to you".

Joran: "Yes but... she won't be found anymore....... I think"

Patrick: "You did her into the ocean?"

Joran: "Yes."

Patrick: "With a boat?"

Joran: "Yes."

Patrick: "Then it's done Joran.. If you brought outside, nobody will find her again... Further than 2 mile and that body won't come back ever again."

Joran: Well, we were at that beach together.. And then at once she stopped breathing.

Patrick: "Damn man."

Joran: "So I called a friend. Not with my mobile because they would have been able to trace that, but the pay-phone of the hotel and I said: Something happened, you need to help me. Please come here and help me. And don't call the police please. And he says: I'm coming.. and no, I won't call the police.

Patrick: And he was there in any minute? He didn't ask anything?

Joran: "Well, no.. he just said Shit"... "But she looked just normal you know. Like there was nothing wrong."


----------------------------

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rfl4ykzXTRA

Joran: "In one time Patrick.. She was doing what people do in movies..."

Patrick: "Shaking?"

Joran: "Yeah, heavily. So I was like.. damn what is this."

Patrick: "How long has she been like that?"

Joran: "You know what?... I don't know exactly."

Patrick: "Man, it has been some kind of epileptic attack."

Joran: "I don't know"...

Patrick: "Did white stuff get out of her mouth?"

Joran: "No white stuff.. I haven't seen that..... At that point I was in panic, you know."

-----------------------

And here a subtitled part:

And this is how much Joran likes the reporter. ;-)

What i found more sickening than Joran's attitude and lack of remorse is the way this documentary is released.

I cringed when i saw the poor woman's(Natalee's mother) reaction and that horrible music. Like the matter wasn't serious enough, they fucking needed strings?? Besides the woman's reaction isn't something to show on tv!!!

Horrible.

It's just my opinion.
I'm not saying what he did wasn't awful...but the way they showed her mother is equally horrible.

Of course Joran has an attitude about him...he's gotten away with it, hasn't he? The latest information confirms what I said before...because of the manner in which the video was taken, it is not admissible in court as a confession. It's not even strong enough evidence to re-arrest him, according to the prosecutors in Aruba. You cannot probe a person into confessing to a crime, secretly videotape it, and expect it to hold up in court. It is a violation of several of the rights that citizens of your country enjoy (just as it is a violation of the rights a citizen of my country would enjoy) and even if you could manage to over-look that, all the defense would have to do is plant doubt of the authenticity of the tape. Confessions to crimes must be entered into with the full knowledge of both parties, and the approval of both the confessor and the confessee. In this case, Joran didn't authorize that he knew he as being taped and didn't admit that the confession was real. Therefore it is not admissible.

My point with DeVries is that he is a journalist; I studied journalism as an undergraduate (I was only 3 classes short of getting a Bachelors degree in it) and with special reporters like this the rules of "neutrality" and "let the evidence speak for itself" doesn't apply...he has no reason that he can't twist the story the way he wants to and do whatever he needs to get a "confession"...especially if he thinks Joran is guilty to start with. It doesn't even meet journalistic ethical standards. He may genuinely be trying to help solve the case, but it's not his place to do that...he has probably hindered the investigation more by doing this. It is the job for the police and investigators involved with the case. Plus now he's build up hope in Natalie's mother that charges can get pressed, and she flew all the way to The Netherlands to be there to see him arrested...and now they admit they can't do a damn thing with the evidence, not even call him in for more questioning. She's been put through all of that hell again for nothing.

Joran did it, but he will, unfortunately, get away with it because there is not enough evidence to tie him to the crime. He was probably being honest about what happened to Natalie (at least about dumping her body) but he will still continue to have that smug attitude because now he knows that he can't be pinned to the crime. I've seen someone else with the exact same attitude: OJ Simpson.

Thanks for the links and the translations, Tijn! I was hoping at some point someone would provide them so I could see it.

Up to the point where she was drunk to her skull and started having convulsions, he wasn't a murderer.

What made him a murderer was conspiring to hide the body, and asking his buddy to dump it in the sea.

We still don't know he wasn't lying about the way she died.

Different speculations circulate now on the web.

I think Alcohol poisoning is the most believable story as she really had a lot of drinks that night. Even snorts of cocaine and shots with high alcoholo-prommilage. (something you conclude when you listen to the story)

So he ain't a murderer in the sense that he went out to find a girl to kill...i believe this was indeed an accident and it was a panic reaction.

But it doesn't make sense because of the fact that his dad is a well known attorny/ex-judge with i think a lot of influence on Aruba. He could get away with it if he told the truth and we would've forgotten about this matter a long time ago.

So a few questions stay unanswered:

Why didn't he call the police right away?
Or the fucking ambulance? He didn't know she was dead or in a coma.
Why did he throw away the shoes?
etc

Dunno dude...
He said he knew they were tricking him...during the first talk he was cautious at some point. And perhaps he was suspicious and later on he talked with someone about it and he/she maybe said that was possibly being tricked in confessing. Later on that day he threw a glass in Peter's face during P&W. Why did he do that????

That could be an indication he knew and after that he suddenly wanted to talk about it, in great detail, proud and with lack of respect.
Maybe it was a big fuck you, because he KNEW that even when he told the truth or said he knows what happened to her he can't be convicted.

They got nothing on him.
THAT'S the whole problem.
