Janssen, Dompig and van der stratten's plea bargain

An internal investigation of an internal investigation from last spring in Aruba numbs the mind with overusing words that dance around the intention of what words are supposed to say. For some reason Jan van der stratten and Gerold Dompig were flashing through my mind while reading this, over and over.

And Paul van der sloot, working in the office of the prosecutor, after Natalee disappeared. Is it just me or is this report trying hard to twist itself into knots and squeeze out the truth in corporate droplets of politically correct and inoffensive words?

This sounds exactly like a gnome, a Dutch gnome, savage embezzler of justice, Paulus van der sloot tossing up "outdated" procedures to dazzle and confuse what the report calls:

"...not having qualitatively good employees in managerial positions."

van der stratten, Dompig and Janssen to the novice.

"...lack of open culture." Now what does that mean? Is that the Arubans or the Dutch?

Add this to "insane and unprofessional" Jan, Gerold and Karin and your complicity in the lack of justice is being given a smokescreen.

You chose stupidy over corruption. Just a bunch of Dutch Yahoo's is how you've chosen to be remembered because there is no jail time.

Over 300 posts can't describe the Aruba Dirty Police better than it's own reports, again.

From Amigoe on Scared Monkeys:

ORANJESTAD – An investigation report on the efficiency of the Police Corps of Aruba (KPA) regarding integrity, states that the control on work procedure is poorly; promotional transfers take place, while there is a disciplinary investigation going; and there is no correct follow up after irregularities within the corps are signaled.

Forensic Services Caribbean in Curaçao did the investigation by order of Justice-minister Rudy Croes (MEP). Amigoe learned this from documents that the paper received for perusal. The report was already given to the then chief of police Ronny Bernadina on April 3rd of this year. The investigation took place in 2005 and based on the findings, Forensic Services Caribbean advices to draw up a master plan to deal with the integrity risks. Based on conversations with some key-officials within the KPA and external partners of the corps, like the Security Service, the Public Prosecutor, and the Coastguard, they have mapped nine risks. They have also analyzed summaries of integrity rules violations within the corps. They first noticed that many rules regarding work procedures and work processes are established, but that these are not univocal and not conveniently arranged. The procedures differ per (police-, editor) district and are implemented or interpreted differently.” Besides, several regulations are not complete. Not everybody is familiar with the procedures, they are difficult of access, and several of the versions used are outdated. Several procedures are too complex and have therefore lost their powers. “They have become dead letters”, states the report. There is lack of control on the observance of the procedures in all sectors of the organization. This has to do with not having qualitatively good employees on managerial positions. Another reason is that there is lack of open culture, in which employees dare to talk to each other. In order to restrict this risk, the bureau advices to further specify the career policy and to organize trainings that would provoke a culture change within the police corps. A third risk that can cause the integrity of the corps to come into play is the lack of confidence when it comes to exchange information. Confidential information is leaked to third parties and nobody knows what to do with the information or that the information can be used against you. “This lack of confidence has consequences for the internal- and external communication”, states the report. It also forms a hindrance for working effectively and efficiently. Their advice is again a culture chance in order to create confidence.
