Joran van der Sloot Doesn’t Like it in Jail
Evidence Still Under Wraps 
Life is hard.

So is life behind bars, apparently.

At least for one of the suspects in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.  He’s not happy with the conditions in the jail he’s housed in.

Joran van der Sloot, a suspect in the disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, is complaining about his treatment in jail.

“He’s making a request to lift restrictions to allow family visits and access to newspapers, magazines, TV, even a Bible,” prosecutor spokesman John Pauley told CNN on Tuesday.

Van der Sloot, jailed on a rural part of the island, is allowed to meet only with his lawyers and police investigators.

He and brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe are being held on suspicion of manslaughter in the presumed death of Holloway, who disappeared on the island in May 2005.

The re-arrest of the suspects was the latest twist in the case. The order of events: the disappearance of Holloway, an island-wide search, questioning the suspects, arrest, release, long wait, re-arrest.

The three men maintain they are innocent and say they have no idea what happened to Holloway. She was last seen leaving a bar with them.

None of the three has been charged. A judge ruled they can be detained while a new team of Dutch and Aruban investigators decides whether to bring them to trial.

The case is heating up.
