Wikipedia History of Gilberto François "Betico" Croes (b. 1938 d. 1986).

Betico was an Arubian political activist who was a proponent of Aruba's separation from the rest of the Netherlands Antilles. This eventually occurred, but Croes lapsed into a coma after an accident on 31 December 1985 (the night of status aparte) and was never conscious to see his accomplishment. He's called the father of the Arubian nation.

The accident he suffered were questioned by many for years since a car was seen leaving the area after the accident. This conspiracy theory was never proven.

He was the leader of the political party M.E.P. (Movimiento Electoral di Pueblo) and was the person responsible for the Seal, Flag and Hymn of the island of Aruba.

In the 1980's he also told his people that are Aruba should target the tourism in order the diversify the economy since it depended mainly on the refinery.

More from Visit Aruba.
A young ambitious schoolmaster/politician from the A.V.P. became the leader of a new political party - M.E.P. (Movimiento Electoral di Pueblo). This ambitious young politician emerged as the driving force for the next generation towards the realization of our new "Status Aparte" in the Dutch Kingdom. This was achieved in 1985 and made official as of 1st January 1986. Mr. Gilberto François Croes (better known as "Betico Croes") became the modern "liberator" of the Aruban cause, namely to become an independent partner within the Royal Dutch Kingdom.

It's hard to imagine that someone who was trying to improve the lives of the Aruban People would approve what is happening on Aruba today. How did Aruba get so far off track?

It's common in small countries when life is inadequate for a People someone emerges to take the helm and demonstrates leadership in trying times. Martin Luther King Jr. immediately leaps to mind. I have to admire someone that shows that Leadership.

Most had very little knowledge of the inner workings of Aruba when Natalee Holloway became a crime VICTIM on Aruba on 5-30-2005. We have all learned about the History, the Culture, the People, the Topography, and the System. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

When I look at the history of Aruba, I become aware that Justice is NOT for ALL.

If a conspiracy was not proven in the death of Betico Croes, I doubt there will be such a conclusion in Natalee's case. Some cases are just left at the window of The Texas School Book Depository. They seem to remain in limbo even though there appears to be ample evidence that a CONSPIRACY does exist.

If a man like Betico, who is revered from San Nicholas to Malmok can not have a conspiracy proven in suspicious circumstances, I doubt that Natalee Holloway will get the Justice we all wish would have arrived yesterday.

Today the Diario has made accusations that the M.E.P. is using LISTENING DEVICES to catch any inner workings of the Newspaper. The phones are bugged.


Morning Daily Paper Is Denouncing Tampering Of Telephone.

Now that is a damn serious allegation.

Have we all heard that allegation before? Yes, Dave Holloway implied that his phone while on Aruba was tampered. He had no other explanation as how some knew what seemed to be confidential.

As I have posted in the past, Prime Minster Nelson Oduber controls all communications on Aruba and recently declared an M.E.P. Boycott against the Diario Newspaper.

Given the fact that the Diario is Public Enemy Number One in the eyes of the M.E.P. and Mr. Oduber, it is logical that if the allegations leveled by the Diario are true, it could be tied to only one person and one party. A party Hell Bent on the destruction of Aruba. Just what are they trying to prevent from coming out? What info are they trying to hear?

Mr. Oduber prevents the son of Betico Croes from being a member of the M.E.P. Party.

In an effort to consolidate his POWER, Mr. Oduber slays the children of his enemies to prevent a future where he has no POWER. In a effort to prevent his downfall, Mr. Oduber bends laws and place Aruba in a dangerous position.

I believe if Betico Croes were alive today, Aruba would not be in the mess it created through poor leadership and decision making.

Betico realized that the Golden Goose flew in from the North and would not have killed that Goose.
