About 200 Arubans protested today (Tuesday) outside a courthouse in the island's capital. Many were angered by remarks made by the mother of missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway.
Beth Holloway Twitty made a tearful plea today (Tuesday) for countries to deny asylum to two suspects released in the case. Satish and Deepak Kalpoe were released from jail after a judge ruled there was not enough evidence to hold the Surinamese brothers. But Holloway Twitty accused the brothers of a violent crime against her 18-year-old daughter, who has been missing since May 30th.
Demonstrators wrapped themselves in Aruban flags and sang the national anthem. Some carried signs reading "respect our Dutch laws or go home" and "innocent until proven guilty."
17-year-old Joran van der Sloot remains in custody in connection with the Alabama teen's disappearance.
