(Newser) – One of the three men arrested in the Natalee Holloway murder case is complaining about his treatment in an Aruban jail. Dutch suspect Joran van der Sloot, 20, is not allowed newspapers or magazines—not even the Bible—and no  visits from his family, CNN reports. "These are tactics reminiscent of Nazi Germany," said his US lawyer.

Van der Sloot and brothers Satish and Deepak Kalpoe were the last people seen with 18-year-old Natalee the night she disappeared in Aruba two years ago on a class trip. Her body has never been found. "I think they're trying to isolate them to get them to break and then say, 'Oh, they made some admissions,'" said the attorney.
