Early departure for Aruban Public Prosecutor

7th February 2009, Comments 0 comments

Hans Mos, the head of the Public Prosecutor's Office on Aruba, is to quit his position this summer.

ARUBA - He has shed no light on the reasons for his early departure.

The most important case handled during his tenure was that of Natalee Holloway, the US student who disappeared from the island in 2005.

The case, which is still not closed and which is estimated to have cost more than seven and a half million euros, has led to increasing criticism of Mr Mos.

The announcement of his departure comes at a time when relationships between Aruba and the Netherlands are strained.

The Aruban Justice Minister, Rudy Kroes, has accused the Netherlands of spying after serious allegations about Aruban Prime Minister Nelson Oduber and a member of Mr Kroes' family were found in a confidential document produced by the Dutch delegation to the island.
