    Minister of Tourism meets with local press in relation to disappearance of American woman
    http://arubaherald.com/aruba-411/798...can-woman.html

    Thursday morning the Minister of Tourism in Aruba Mr. Otmar Oduber held a meeting with different Aruban reporters. During this meeting the director of The Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) Mrs. Ronella Tjin a Sjoe and Sue Ann Lee were also present.

    The goal of the meeting was to inform the local press of the steps that the Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA)and the Government are doing in regards to the publicity that the case of the missing American woman is bringing to Aruba. The Minister informed that on an hourly basis they receive updates of all media publications and broadcasts that mention Aruba in relations to the on going investigation. The Tourism Authority receives many requests for information from international press but they are not commenting. This is because it is not advisable to directly mix tourism news with a judicial occurrence. All information requests regarding this case are being referred to the public prosecutor. The ATA is providing the international press when requested with copies of press statements that were given by the public prosecutor. Also all ATA offices in the United States are on constant alert. Aruba's income is provided for 77% by tourism and for that reason the government of Aruba and The Aruba Tourism Authority have a high priority on this case.

    from CNN
    ORANJESTAD, Aruba (CNN) -- An Aruban magistrate ruled Wednesday that a Maryland man, detained in connection with the disappearance of an American woman, will remain in custody for another 60 days.
    A detainment hearing was held Wednesday morning for Gary Giordano, 50. Giordano was arrested by Aruban police on August 5, three days after Robyn Gardner, 35, also of Maryland, was last seen near Baby Beach on the western tip of the Caribbean island.
    The magistrate's brief order did not elaborate on the decision beyond saying the suspect, identified by his initials of G.V.G., was "suspected of involvement in the possible drowning of the American woman," and that the custody extension "was done on request of the Prosecutor's Office."
    On August 15, a judge ruled that there was enough evidence to keep Giordano detained for another 16 days as police continued to investigate the death.
    The missing woman and the suspect arrived on the island July 31 from the United States, according to Aruban prosecutors.
    Giordano, of Gaithersburg, Maryland, told authorities that he was snorkeling with Gardner and signaled to her to swim back, according to a statement from the prosecutor's office. When he reached the beach, Gardner was nowhere to be found, he allegedly said.
    According to a transcript of a police interview, obtained by CNN, Giordano told police that he feared for his life when he signaled for Gardner to turn back and didn't look for her as he swam for shore.
    "I only looked back when I hit a rock," the document quotes Giordano as telling investigators. "Before that, I did not look back. I was only busy saving my life."
    Gardner has not been found, although search efforts are ongoing.
    Giordano also told authorities that he is the beneficiary of a $1.5 million accidental death insurance policy tied to Gardner, a local official told CNN.
    CNN's Martin Savidge contributed to this report.

    By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, September 15, 3:53 PM

    ORANJESTAD, Aruba — Aruban authorities will stage a re-enactment of the alleged drowning of a Maryland woman to test her jailed companion’s account of the incident, a prosecution official said Thursday.

    Authorities hope the re-enactment will help them determine if it’s possible for Robyn Gardner of Frederick, Maryland, to have drowned while snorkeling in the way her companion, Gary Giordano, has described the incident to investigators, Solicitor General Taco Stein said.

    “We hope to get more insight into his version of events and see if we can shoot holes in it,” Stein said in an interview with The Associated Press.

    Aruban police officers will play the parts of 35-year-old Gardner and Giordano, a businessman from Gaithersburg, Maryland.

    The re-enactment will take place soon, probably within the next few days, near the southern tip of the Dutch Caribbean island but authorities are keeping the date a secret to discourage spectators, Stein said.

    Giordano was arrested three days after telling police that Gardner was apparently swept out to sea while they were snorkeling during a five-day excursion to the island. He denies any wrongdoing and her body has not been found.

    A judge ordered Giordano jailed for at least 60 more days on Aug. 31 to give authorities more time to investigate her presumed death and pursue possible criminal charges against him.
