GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Natalee Holloway's father arrived back in Aruba just hours ago and met with the chief prosecutor. Holloway family attorney Vinda DeSousa was at the meeting. She joins us live on the phone from Aruba, welcome Vinda.

VINDA DESOUSA, HOLLOWAY FAMILY ATTORNEY (by telephone): Hi, Greta, nice talking to you again.

VAN SUSTEREN: It's nice talking to you. So, Vinda, what happened at this meeting today?

DESOUSA: Well, this meeting today both my colleague and myself sat with Mrs. Karin Janssen and Mr. Dompig, you know the acting chief of police with Dave Holloway and he was briefed on the investigation, how the status of the investigation is, where it's going and what is being done at the moment.

VAN SUSTEREN: Vinda, did you walk out of that meeting thinking, wow, they're really moving on this?

DESOUSA: Yes. We were all very optimistic and so was the prosecution and the deputy chief of police. We were told that by no means this is a cold case that there is a lot to investigate on and they're very optimistic.

VAN SUSTEREN: What about the tapes? I mean what's sort of interesting is that apparently Deepak Kalpoe had a conversation on tape with a man named Mr. Skeeters and that on this tape he said that he had had sexual relations with Natalee and, of course, there's a question whether it was assault or not, whether she could consent if she was under the influence.

DESOUSA: Exactly.

VAN SUSTEREN: But apparently he had never told the police that before. I know the deputy police chief wants those tapes. Does Karin Janssen want those tapes and has she made a demand for them?

DESOUSA: Oh, most definitely. The minute that the show aired on Dr. Phil and these statements by Deepak were heard on Dr. Phil's show, Mrs. Janssen being the chief prosecutor and the head of the investigation requested those tapes.

I know that they were requested through Mr. Skeeters and from what I understand a copy was turned over to the FBI. A formal request was made by the chief prosecutor to the FBI and the FBI promised to have a copy or have the tapes delivered to the Aruban authorities. They haven't received a copy yet.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, well what takes so long? FedEx can do it overnight.

DESOUSA: I have no clue. My guess is as good as yours. The FBI promised that they would have it here as soon as possible but they haven't received it yet.

VAN SUSTEREN: Are there any other persons of interest or suspects other than the three who were in custody and are now released?

DESOUSA: I don't know if there are any other suspects. I know that there are persons of interest. They have been persons of interest and the ones that have been interviewed are being re-interviewed and there are new people being interviewed as well.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right. Did anyone actually say anything like did Karin Janssen or the deputy police chief say we talked to this witness, this witness said this or we saw this new piece of evidence" rather than just we're moving forward? This isn't a cold case. Did they actually give you some hardcore evidence?

DESOUSA: There were some details of the investigation given as much as possible, you know, in order not to jeopardize the investigation but I can't elaborate on that. I'm not authorized to divulge any of that.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right. Without saying what the evidence was, is it physical evidence or is it statements that one of the suspects might have made?

DESOUSA: We're talking about statements where, as you know, everybody is still looking for physical evidence as to where Natalee's whereabouts are. If there is any other physical evidence, I can't elaborate on that either.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, do you expect any re-arrests in the next two weeks or three weeks?

DESOUSA: It's difficult for me to say. The tapes, they're waiting on the tapes and to see first of all, I think Mr. Dompig already elaborated on that, they need to be authenticated and if so, they need to be revised and depending on that result, if what he said or what was aired on Dr. Phil or if there is more on that, there is a possibility, yes.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right. Well we'll put heat on this end to get the FBI to get those tapes over to you Vinda. Thank you.

DESOUSA: Thank you, Greta. Thank you very much.

VAN SUSTEREN: Thank you.
