NATALEE HOLLOWAY UPDATE: JORAN WON'T BE REARRESTED

Despite an alleged videotaped confession, Joran van der Sloot will not be rearrested in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. An Aruban court of appeal ruled that Joran could not be rearrested solely on the confession, which was secretly taped while in a car by hidden cameras.

"Considering the possibility of a serious personality disorder — as voiced by the prosecution — combined with a personal history of untrue statements and remarks, which even according to the suspect himself are frequently false, the Court of Appeal has reasons for doubt regarding the incriminating character of the 'car-statement,'" the court stated.
