Kalpoes Released, Van der sloot and Guards Still Suspects

Aruba: Judge Smid ruled today that the Kalpoes can be released as suspects but held that Joran Van der sloot and the Security Guards should continue to remain suspects.

Asked why the security guards are still being held as suspects, Deputy Chief of Police Jan van stilj surmised, "because they're black, and blacks are always suspicious."

Judge Smid heard evidence that the security guards resisted attempts at framing them for the murder of Natalee Holloway. This is forbidden under Dutch Law.

"Clearly, Mickey John is part of a pattern of coverup and misdirection" stated the Judge. Smid also implored Karin Janssen to find evidence against the guards.

Judge Smid ruled that the Kalpoes did not know Natalee was dead when they were sexually assaulting her but than Joran did, since he drugged her.

The van der sloots attorney presented documents in court to say that they never heard of Natalee Holloway, never met her and that all of Joran's previous statements were made under duress and should be retracted.

Prosecutor Janssen was not present during the hearing, as she had a scheduled vacation and didn't want to lose her time which cannot be carried over to next year.
