Joanna Yeates: Vincent Tabak’s Beanpole Surprise (Photos)

by | 21st, January 2011

JOANNA Yeates: Vincent Tabak is the man in the news. He’s been arrested. He lives at Flat 2 44 Canynge Road, Clifton, Bristol. Joanna Yeates used to live in a property in the same building. She lived at Flat 1. Mr Tabak has lived has the property since 2009.

Police have not named Mr Tabak as a suspect. They did not afford Chris Jefferies the same courtesy. Back then, the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, warned newspaper editors about the dangers of publishing irrelevant or improper material” . The newspapers went to town on Mr Jefferies, giving him The Full Murat .

Will the press treat Mr Tabak with some respect and news of his apparent arrest with circumspection? His Facebook photo remain a gift to armchair sleuths. But will he be monstered?

The Sun is ever informative:

One colleague at consultant engineers Buro Happold in Bath said: “He is everything you expect from a Dutch bloke.”

Cloggs? Bag of weed? Good use of the ball?

“He’s quiet, very laid-back and from what I know has a good sense of humour. He never seems to be flustered and is very polite. Vincent is an incredibly intelligent man. He was popular. and never struck me as the sort of person who had enemies.”

Good news for the Dutch, there. Not all Dutchmen are like Geert Wilders, Mohammed Bouyeri or Nigel de Jong.

One after one people who know Mr Tabak arrive to say that he is a likeable, intelligent and decent bloke.
