Aruba Boycott I

11/8/05- UPDATE: It happened!
Gov. Riley has called for a boycott of travel to Aruba by US citizens.

"There are no other alternatives to get Aruban authorities to take this as seriously as they should," Riley said. Riley has asked the governors of the other 49 states to join him in urging a boycott of Aruba on behalf of the family of Natalee Holloway. According to KFDX, "Riley said the state house had already passed a resolution on the boycott, and the senate is expected to follow. Riley says he will ask every governor in the United States to boycott Aruba as well."

I was unable to find more information about how the House and Senate is involved. I will update when I do.

Wow! This case has turned out to be a real mess! The latest news on the Natalee Holloway case is that the Governor of Alabama (Bob Riley) will call for a boycott from travel to Aruba tomorrow. A press conference is scheduled for Gov. Riley and Beth Twitty to announce the boycott. Check out the argument between Jayne Weintraub, Arlene Schipper & Wendy Murphy on MSNBC. See the Videa as posted on Blogs for Natalee.

A few days ago, Natalee's parents asked the Aruban Gov't to assign a whole new team of investigators/prosecution to the case. They feel the current team has messed up royally. I am sure they believe this case will never be solved if the same people continue to work the case as they have. I could not agree more! Unfortunately, that request was denied. The sad part about this whole case is that the evidence is most likely gone. The authorities did not do what they should've from the beginning and now look where we are. I think the authorities are covering something up or failed to investigate this case on purpose.

Even Dave Holloway is fed up! Two days ago, Dave gave an interview and one thing that Dave stated really stuck "they only do something when the 'heat' from the media is on them.."
