Premeditated Paul Van der sloot

From BFN document:

Curacao Judge and Paulus

Paulus served with these Judges during his Judge in Training program for approximately 2 1/2 years.
Did those relationships affect the decisions made in the courtroom regarding his involvement in this case?

1. JUNE 24, 2005
Paulus Van Der Sloot, the father of Joran who was detained yesterday in the case, is being held under suspicion of complicity to pre-meditated murder, complicity to kidnapping and murder and kidnapping.

With clear inconsistencies regarding time line given to police in declarations he gave, why was Paulus Van der Sloot released?
Are documents on Paulus Van der Sloot also missing from police files, as well as statements made by Joran between May 30 and June 9th?

2. JUNE 27, 2005
Paulus Van Der Sloot, the father of 17-year-old Joran Van Der Sloot who is still being detained, was released after a judge ruled the prosecution did not show it had a reasonable suspicion to continue to hold him.

Why was Paulus van der Sloot treated differently when he was arrested as a suspect?

3. OCTOBER 9, 2005
Reporter: But what about after Paul Van der Sloot was arrested, couldn’t you get a warrant to search the house then?

Dompig: It was also denied, we were a bit disappointed with that. The judge was coming from another island I must point out. He said we didn’t make a good enough case to get a warrant.

4. NOVEMBER 11, 2005
Paulus van der Sloot won his case against the prosecution and has been released from suspicion. Paul Van der Sloot is no longer a suspect in the Natalee Holloway case.

5. MARCH 15, 2006
ORANJESTAD – There is a strong indication that the Public Prosecutor will close the investigation in the Holloway case. This can be concluded by the interim decision of the Curaçao judge in the case of damages for prejudice that the van der Sloot family brought against the government
In an interview with Bon Dia Aruba, the attorney for the van der Sloot family, Mr. A. Swaen, revealed that the Curaçao judge said that he wants to obtain more information before he can take a decision about the van der Sloot family lawsuit.

Nelson Oduber asked that Van Der Stratten be removed from this case.

WARD: Well, you have to understand what's going on here. As I said from the beginning, there's quite a bit of politics going on here. Paul Van Der Sloot and Van Der Straaten are very, very good friends, and from the beginning of this investigation, it's been completely hampered. When Equusearch was here and went over to search on the property, they were instructed what they could search and what they couldn't search. So that's just one thing that goes to show you.

June 28, 2005
TWAN HUYS: Do you know the people very well, for example, the people here from the public prosecutors' office that ordered your detention?
PAULUS VD SLOOT: Yes, for sure, because, before that, I have worked for eight years as chief of the cabinet of the prosecutor general [2].
TWAN HUYS: So, you also know the current prosecutor general?
TWAN HUYS: Mrs. Croes.
TWAN HUYS: Yes, and what does that mean when your colleagues stop by to arrest you?
PAULUS VD SLOOT: That gives a feeling of absurdity. It is indeed almost unimaginable that by someone you actually know very well, where you worked together with for a long time, that that one comes to tell you that you are suspected of complicity to murder.
TWAN HUYS: Who was that in your case?
PAULUS VD SLOOT: That was, in this case, that was the leader of the team of police commissioners.
TWAN HUYS: Jan van der Stratten.
PAULUS VD SLOOT: That was Jan van der Stratten, yes.
TWAN HUYS: And you know each other very well

Paulus’ son is the prime suspect in this case.
Arlene was Aruba’s official spokesperson on this case for several months.

June 30, 2005
ARLENE ELLIS-SCHIPPER, ARUBAN ATTORNEY: Well, I know Mr. Van Der Sloot is a very quiet, soft-spoken, kind man. I have had the pleasure actually of working with him. And we are just very shocked here on the island. And I am shocked at what has happened today.

June 30, 2005
Paul van der Sloot, a judge in training in Aruba, gave his 17-year-old son Joran van der Sloot and two Surinamese brothers legal advice the day after 18-year-old Natalee Holloway disappeared, District Attorney Caren Janssen told MSNBC in an interview

"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.

If stronger evidence was needed for each successive request to hold a suspect for longer periods of time, then where did all the evidence go against Joran, the one suspect who was held the longest period of time?
