Joran van der Sloot Accused of Sex Trafficking


nataleeholloway.jpgJoran van der Sloot, age 21, has been accused of playing a role in sex trafficking between Thailand and The Netherlands. Van der Sloot was once the prime suspect in the disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway from the island of Aruba in May, 2005.
The accusations against van der Sloot have been made by Dutch crime journalist Peter R. de Vries. Earlier this year the same journalist used a hidden camera to capture van der Sloot discussing Holloway’s disappearance. In that recording, van der Sloot claimed that Natalee’s body was taken out to sea and dumped after her death during a make-out session with van der Sloot on an Aruban beach.
De Vries’s new revelations are based on taped discussions van der Sloot had with someone in Bangkok. Van der Sloot, thinking he was talking with some kind of big shot in the Dutch sex industry, allegedly said he could get together travel papers for the girls, who would be told they were simply going to The Netherlands for dancing jobs.
Peter R. de Vries’s new exposé — broadcast Sunday night — also stated that van der Sloot makes about $13,000 per girl delivered into Dutch prostitution. Van der Sloot reportedly stated on camera that the sex workers make only ‘300 dollars a month.’
Morally bankrupt behavior from Joran van der Sloot? Who’da thunk it?
Anyone who followed the Holloway case must take note of this. According to De Vries, young Joran could face “big problems in Thailand.”
We can only hope. A couple of years in a Thai prison? Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. []
