Preview of van der Sloot interview
Last Update: 9/04 1:56 pm


Birmingham, Al (WIAT) Joran van der Sloot is spending his time teaching English to his Peruvian prison guards, according to the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

The newspaper’s crime reporter John van den Heuvel’s exclusive interview from van der Sloot’s cell in Lima’s Castro Castro prison is being previewed in the weekend editions of the Dutch paper and will also appear Monday on the RTL television network in The Netherlands as a 90 minute special titled "RTL EXTRA:  JORAN SPEAKS".

De Telegraaf's  website says that although van der Sloot is in a high security wing for fear of actions by fellow inmates, he says he doesn’t fear for his life. He asked whether he could share a prison cellblock with accused Columbian hitman Hugo Trujillo Ospina with whom he previously shared a cell.

Ospina, along with American William Trickett Smith and an unidentified prisoner were shown mugging for pictures taken by prison guards….a situation being investigated by prison officials. Smith is known in Peru as the Suitcase Murderer after his wife’s dismembered body was put in a suitcase and tossed in the ocean.

Van der Sloot is in Castro Castro facing murder charges in the death of 21 year old Stephany Flores whose body was found in his Lima hotel room. Van der Sloot fled to Chile where he was arrested and brough back to Peru. Police there say he confessed to killing Flores after she found material relating to Natalee Holloway on van der Sloot’s laptop. He is appealing to have that confession thrown out claiming he was coerced, didn’t have proper legal representation nor an adequate translator.

Van der Sloot is best known here in Alabama as the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Mountain Brook teen Natalee Holloway on a graduation trip to Aruba. She was last seen with van der Sloot. He is still considered the prime suspect in Natalee’s disappearance. Although questioned several times by Aruban authorities, he has never been charged in that case.

He is, however, facing federal wire fraud and extortion charges here in Birmingham. The U.S. attorney’s office says van der Sloot took money from the Holloway family in exchange for promised information about Natalee’s fate, but never provided the information.

Joran van der Sloot interviewed on Dutch TV
Last Update: 9/03 4:33 pm


Birmingham, Al (WIAT)  Joran van der Sloot is still waiting to find out if a three judge panel will throw out his murder confession, but he's been using some of that time to be interviewed by Dutch TV.

According to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, van der Sloot has been interviewed by a Dutch crime reporter, John van den Heuvel, at the infamous high security Miguel Castro Castro prison in the Peruvian capital Lima.


Van der Sloot has confessed to killing 21 year old Peruvian student Stephany Flores but is now waiting word on his appeal to have the confession thrown out claiming it was coerced, he didn't have proper legal representation and he was not given a qualified interpreter.

Flores body was found in van der Sloot's Lima hotel room. In his confession he reportedly told police he killed Flores when she found material relating to Natalee Holloway on his laptop.

Natalee Holloway is the Mountain Brook teen who disappeared on a graduation trip to Aruba. She was last seen with Joran van der Sloot who is still considered the prime suspect in her disappearance. That disappearance was five years to the day that Stephany Flores corpse was discovered in van der Sloot's room.

RNW says Mr van den Heuvel has also interviewed van der Sloot's mother, Anita, who says she will not visit her son if he is convicted.

"Joran speaks" will be broadcast by RTL television on Monday. The television station is not giving any details on the interview.

Will "confession" hurt van der Sloot?
Last Update: 6:52 am


Birmingham, Al (WIAT) Has Joran van der Sloot finally told one story too many?  Will his comments to Dutch crime reporter John van den Heuvel help federal authorities here in Birmingham bring him to the U.S. to face wire fraud and extortion charges?

In a prison cell interview to be aired tonight on Dutch TV, van der Sloot admits he took money from Natalee Holloway's family after promising information about the Mountain Brook teenagers disappearance on a graduation trip to Aruba.

"I wanted to get back at Natalee's family - her parents have been making my life tough for five years," the paper De Telegraaf quoted him as saying from prison in Peru. "When they offered to pay for the girl's location, I thought: 'Why not'?"


U.S. prosecutors say that in the sting earlier this year, Natalee's mother sent $10,000 in cash to Van der Sloot through an FBI witness, and a wire transfer of $15,000 to Van der Sloot's bank account in the Netherlands. He took the money and flew to Latin America.  He met Peruvian student Stephany Flores in a Lima, Peru casino.  Her corpse was later found in his hotel room.

Van der Sloot stated that he and his father buried Natalee’s body underneath the foundations of a house in Oranjestad, the capital of Aruba. However, the body was never found. An FBI investigation showed construction of the house in question had not even started yet in 2005 when Natalee disappeared.

He's facing murder charges in Stephany Flores death and Peruvian police have a confession. Van der Sloot claims that confession was coerced and is trying to get it thrown out.  That's where the "confession" to extortion comes into play.  If, and it's considered a long shot, a three judge Peruvian panel throws out his confession, willl the U.S. extradition request get more consideration from Peruvian officials?

Not only Rene Gielen signed the petition, but also 3 members of the Maessen family. So it wouldn't surprise me the blond girl who is visiting Joran in prison is, as Joran stated himself ' my girlfriend' is Fabienne Maessen. She is now is a exchange student, residing in Sao Paulo, Latin America.
The donations makes it possible for her to fly to Lima.

Joran Van der Sloot Admits Extorting Money From Holloways to get back at Natalee Holloway’s Parents

http://scaredmonkeys.com/2010/09/06/joran-van-der-sloot-admits-extorting-money-from-holloways-to-get-back-at-them/

Do not think that it is a coinsidence that this twisted sociopath picked Labor Day weekend as the date to further torture the parents of Natalee Holloway.

Quote
Joran Van der Sloot just admitted to felony extortion … Always the victim, Joran Van der Sloot admits extortion out of revenge.

Talk about sick …

In an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, the accused killer of 21 year old Peruvian Stephany Flores, Joran Van der Sloot has admitted to extorting money from the family of Natalee Holloway in order to get back at them.  Joran Van der Sloot admitted to extorting money from the Holloway family in return for revealing the location of Natalee Holloway’s body. Van der Sloot has already been indicted in the United States on extortion charges.

Quote
Don’t think that Joran’s extortion admission of getting even with Beth, Dave, Jug, Paul and the rest of Natalee Holloway’s family was not done with timing in mind. Do not forget, 5 years ago on Labor Day weekend, Aruba under the cloak of darkness of the Holiday weekend released Joran Van der Sloot from jail. Conveniently enough, Aruba also released the Kalpoes as well.

FLASHBACK - AUGUST 29, 2005

It's named Katrina!

Loving Natalee - Beth Holloway

Page 179 - Excited with the news that now all three suspects are in custody, friends Hal and Phillip accompany Jug and me back to Aruba after the auction.  As we leave the mainland, a big hurricane is moving toward the United States.  It's named Katrina.  And our flight plan is altered to get around the storm.

Page 183 - Settling in for the night, we see and hear the first reports about the hurricane.  It hits hard in Louisiana.  Mississipi and Alabama are also affected.  We all have loved ones at home in these states.  The early reports of the devastation are unbelievable.  News reporters are saying the death toll could exceed that of 9/11.  Our hearts ache for the people of New Orleans.  Reports are telling us that this is the hardest-hit city.  But visuals are not come out yet of the most damaged areas.  Reporters can't even get to those.  We stand down from all our scheduled interviews and desperately await information on the aftermath of the giant hurricane.


FLASHBACK - SEPTEMBER 1, 2005

The Cloak of Cover

Loving Natalee - Beth Holloway

Page 182 - September 1 Helen calls to say the court is asking for DNA from the Kalpoes and Joran van der Sloot and that their attorneys are fighting this.  She also says the suspects are pointing the finger at one another.

Page 183 - Helen is very positive. "It looks good that they will remain in custody." she says.  Then about three hours after she tells me this encouraging news, a devastating call comes from an AP reporter.

"Paulus van der Sloot and his attorney are bragging to everyone that all three suspects are getting out day after tomorrow!

Then all the media start calling.  I call Helen, then FBI agent Bill and the U.S. vice-consul.  None of them have this information.  So we tell the media it must be a rumor.  But the word is out all over the island to the defense side that all three suspects will walk.

Four and a half hours after this announcement is made to international media by Joran's father and his defense team, the FBI calls to tell me it is indeed true.  So the three suspects who were last seen with my daughter, and who offered multiple versions of what happened that night, will go free.  And we are the last ones to find out.

Natalee's handwriting on her immigration card states that the duration of her stay here would be four nights.  It has been ninety-five.  And I have painstakingly counted every one of them.

When Helen calls, I stand in a corner of the hotel room, phone to my ear, tapping my head against the wall over and over.  Tears fall hard.  "I'm done, Helen.  I'm done.  No justice for Natalee in Aruba.  I'm done."

Pages 184 - And Bill explains how the release of the three suspects happened.  "The information the FBI was given was that the judge gave Joran thirty more days, up to October 1.  And he gave the Kalpoes eight more days.  But then the judge flew back from Curacao and faxed a reverse decision from there."  The reverse decision decreed that all three will go free.

The opportunity to hide behind Hurricane Katrina is too inviting.  The three suspects will be released while all eyes are turned to the devastation in New Orlean.

Page 815 - The last announcement I make on television is never seen.  Hurricane Katrina gives the island the cloak of cover it needs to let the suspects walk free and relieve itself of its media burden.

Van der Sloot Admits to Natalee Holloway Extortion Scheme, Says Report


AMSTERDAM (CBS/AP) Joran van der Sloot has reportedly acknowledged extorting money from Natalee Holloway's parents and claims he did it to get back at them.

PICTURES: Joran van der Sloot Hotel Room Crime Scene

The Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf quotes the Dutchman as confessing to taking money from the family of the American in return for revealing the location of Holloway's body in an interview published today. He was indicted in the U.S. in June for extortion after being caught in an FBI sting.

Tthe place he indicated as her burial site turned out to be bogus.

Van der Sloot is considered the prime suspect in Holloway's 2005 disappearance, and is currently being held in Peru for the murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores. Holloway was last seen alive with him on the Caribbean resort island of Aruba in 2005; van der Sloot has publicly said that he killed her and then retracted his confession several times.

"I wanted to get back at Natalee's family - her parents have been making my life tough for five years," the paper quotes him as saying from prison in Peru. "When they offered to pay for the girl's location, I thought: 'Why not'?"

U.S. prosecutors say that earlier this year as part of the sting, Natalee's mother sent $10,000 in cash to van der Sloot through an FBI witness, and a wire transfer of $15,000 to van der Sloot's bank account in the Netherlands. He used the money to fund a trip to Latin America.

On that trip, Peru officials allege that he killed Stephany Flores in his hotel room in Lima, Peru, on May 30 - 5 years to the day after Holloway's disappearance. He met both women in casinos.

Van der Sloot initially confessed to killing Flores to Peru police, but later said he only did so because he was intimidated and had been promised he would be extradited to the Netherlands.

His requests to have his confession in the Flores case retracted - on the grounds that he did not have proper legal representation or an official translator -  have so far been denied.

Van der Sloot faces charges of first-degree murder and robbery for Flores' death. Police say he smashed in the young woman's face, then strangled her, threw her to the floor and emptied her wallet.

Despite van der Sloot having been arrested twice in the Holloway case, Aruba prosecutors say they do not have enough evidence to put him behind bars.

In March, van der Sloot reached out to Kelly, demanding $250,000 from Holloway’s mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, in exchange for leading Kelly to the teenager’s remains, Kelly told TODAY. .......

Kelly agreed to meet van der Sloot alone and brought no money — angering the suspect. Kelly then called the FBI to set up a sting, telling TODAY it only took $100 to convince van der Sloot to start talking with him again. .......
 
Kelly said van der Sloot wanted $25,000 up front, with the rest to be provided when the remains were recovered and proven to be Holloway’s, Kelly said.

Dutch paper: Van der Sloot admits extortionBy the CNN Wire Staff
September 6, 2010 4:40 p.m. EDT


(CNN) -- Joran van der Sloot admitted in an interview with a Dutch newspaper that he extorted money from the family of Natalee Holloway, but his attorney in a Peruvian murder case suggested Monday that his client's comments may have been mistranslated.

Attorney Maximo Alteza said he is not involved in the case of Holloway, the Alabama teenager who disappeared in Aruba after going out on the town with van der Sloot, and was reluctant to comment on van der Sloot's interview with The Telegraph.

"Maybe there were some mistakes in the translation," he said. Alteza said van der Sloot was not paid for the interview.

"I wanted to get back at Natalee's family," van der Sloot said from prison in the Dutch interview. "Her parents have been making my life tough for five years."

"When they offered to pay for the girl's location, I thought: 'Why not?'" he said.

Van der Sloot faces a count of wire fraud and a count of extortion in the United States for allegedly trying to extort more than $250,000 from Holloway's family in return for the location of her body. He has denied responsibility for her disappearance.

He was arrested twice in Aruba in connection with the Holloway case but has never been charged.

The 22-year-old Dutch citizen is awaiting trial in Lima, Peru, where he stands accused of killing Stephany Flores in a hotel room.

Also Monday, a Peruvian court voted 2-1 to reject van der Sloot's contention that he is being held unlawfully, but the court requires three votes to secure a decision. Alteza said that a fourth jurist will hear the case and cast a vote at a public hearing next week. If that judge votes in favor of van der Sloot, a fifth judge will hear the case to break the tie.

Alteza said that van der Sloot's constitutional rights have been violated and he "could be released because of the mistakes made by the police during the investigation."

"It doesn't matter if he is innocent or guilty," he said

Van der Sloot's New Confession

by Barbie Latza Nadeau

September 6, 2010 | 6:07pm



AP Photo Natalee Holloway’s alleged killer has admitted to extorting her parents in return for revealing her body’s location—but is it just his latest plea for attention?

Can anyone really believe anything Joran van der Sloot says? The 22-year-old Dutch man who is awaiting trial for the murder of 21-year-old Stephany Flores in Lima, Peru, has given yet another confession about his involvement in the 2005 disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway. This time, he told the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf that he attempted to extort $250,000 from Holloway’s mother out of revenge for being so tough on him.  “I wanted to get back at Natalee’s family,” he told De Telegraaf’s John van den Heuvel during a televised interview in Van der Sloot’s prison cell block. “When they offered to pay for the girl’s location, I thought, ‘Why not’?”

This is not, of course, the first confession that van der Sloot has made.

Van der Sloot says he then told Holloway’s mother that her daughter’s body was under the foundation of a house in Oranjestad, Aruba.  The house was being built at the time Holloway disappeared in May 2005 and van der Sloot says his father buried her under the wall forms that had been set in place to pour cement.  Van der Sloot’s father died of cardiac arrest in the spring of 2010, and authorities in Aruba say that building records show that there was no such permit or record that anyone was pouring cement at the address when Holloway disappeared. 

They dismissed the confession to Holloway’s mother as yet another lie.

This is not, of course, the first confession that van der Sloot has made. He was caught on hidden camera in 2007 by Dutch journalist Peter R. De Vries admitting to dumping Holloway’s body at sea after she died on the beach.  He then famously told Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren that he had sold Holloway as a sex slave off the coast of Aruba.  And when he was arrested in Peru last June, he told Peruvian officials that he would finally give up the truth about where to find the young American’s remains – but only if they turned him over to authorities in Aruba.

The latest Holloway confession has little bearing on Van der Sloot’s current dilemma, so he had nothing to lose by admitting the obvious, though it was gratuitously cruel to admit he did it for spite.  With the exception of a young woman who brings him food and his own mother, who was also interviewed by De Telegraaf for the segment, the Dutch man has few obvious supporters.

Still, he is wildly popular.  In August, a photograph emerged of him and three cellblock mates – Columbian hitman Hugo Trujillo Ospina and American William Trickett Smith II, known as the suitcase killer after murdering and dismembering his wife.  The photo of the three notorious foreigner killers, along with an unidentified foreign man, was allegedly sold to local tabloid photographers by prison staff. A formal investigation by Peru’s National Institute of Corrections say they have begun "administrative and disciplinary actions with the goal of establishing responsibility over the acts of official misconduct by employees of the Castro Castro Correctional Institution. They improperly used photographic equipment that was meant for administrative duties."

Van der Sloot is also the subject of an English language Dutch film set for release in 2011.  Me and Mr. Jones is a fictional account of the crime that paints Holloway as a party girl and van der Sloot as a playboy.  The scenes were being filmed in Aruba by director Paul Ruven in May 2010 when Flores was murdered.  On his website, Ruven says he incorporated the Flores story into the script but he has hinted to Dutch media that the film does not end with a resolution of the crime.  He told Radio Netherlands that the film casts an honest light on Aruba.  “It’s this colonial background of favoritism and conflict of interests that allows a young rich Dutchman to do what he likes without being brought to justice,” he said. “Nobody on Aruba wants the truth to come out. It was also never the intention that Joran should end up in prison. That would damage tourism and the economy.”

The same cannot be said for Peru.  When van der Sloot was detained in June, the authorities wasted no time locking him up.  He initially confessed to killing Flores in his hotel room after she found incriminating information on his laptop about the Holloway case.  But shortly after, he steadfastly denied his confession, saying it was coerced and that his court-appointed lawyer was really working for the Peruvians and had actually tricked him into confession. Earlier this summer a Peruvian judge ruled that the confession would be admissible in his murder trial, but his new lawyers are appealing that ruling.

But in his latest confession in the De Telegraaf inteview, van der Sloot admits that he did murder Flores, even saying that the Peru prosecutor will easily convict him.

Truth may be elusive to the young Dutch man, but it is obvious that—unlike in Aruba—this time he understands his fate.

Published on : 6 September 2010 - 2:29pm
By RNW News Desk (still: Ochtendspits/WNL)


Joran van der Sloot no longer denies murdering Peruvian student Stephany Flores. Dutch crime reporter John van den Heuvel interviewed Van der Sloot in the infamous Castro Castro prison in Lima.

The journalist says that the murder suspect wants to give his account of Ms Flores’ murder in court. In the same interview, he admits extorting money from Natalee Holloway’s family. Joran van der Sloot is the main suspect in the case of the US teenager, who went missing in Aruba five years ago. He says after receiving money for information on the location of Ms Holloway’s body, he pointed out a random spot.

The interview will be broadcast on Dutch commercial television channel RTL on Monday evening.

Watch van der Sloot interview excerpts
Last Update: 8:00 pm
 

Birmingham, Al  (WIAT)  The Dutch news organization Radio Netherlands Worldwide has posted some excerpts of Joran van der Sloot's prison cell interview on line with English subtitles.

Not surprisingly, the website's peek at that interview which is the focus of a special program Monday night on Dutch television network RTL doesn't contain the more explosive elements previewed today by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf:  where van der Sloot admits he scammed the parents of missing Mountain Brook teen Natalee Holloway and expresses regret for the death of Peruvian student Stephany Flores.

Flores' body was found in van der Sloot's Lima hotel room five years to the day Natalee holloway disappeared on Aruba.  Natalee was last seen with van der Sloot at an island nightclub.  Van der Sloot told Peruvian police he killed Flores after she found material about Holloway on his laptop.  He has since appealed that the confession was coerced and should be thrown out.

In the subtitled exceprts on the RNW website, van der Sloot says he's been generally well treated in Lima's Castro Castro prison.  He says he speaks to his mother weekly but that the whole situation is hard on her and his brothers.  He says his brothers have cut off contact with him.  It's been previously reported that his mother won't visit him in prison.

Van der Sloot: I've 'misused' Holloway case 'for my own advantage'By the CNN Wire Staff
September 7, 2010 9:11 a.m. EDT


(CNN) -- In a jailhouse interview with a Dutch television station, Joran van der Sloot said he is remorseful for telling so many stories regarding the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, but once again denied culpability in the case.

"For everything that's happened since 2005, all the things said in the media and everything, I feel guilty for, yeah," van der Sloot, 22, said in the interview, portions of which were aired on NBC's "Today" on Tuesday.

The Dutch citizen is jailed in Lima, Peru, where he is awaiting trial on a murder charge in the death of Peruvian student Stephany Flores. Her body was found in May in a hotel room registered to van der Sloot, which the two were seen entering on surveillance camera video. He also is charged with a count of wire fraud and a count of extortion in Alabama for allegedly trying to extort more than $250,000 from Holloway's family in return for disclosing the location of her body.

Holloway was last seen in the early hours of May 30, 2005, leaving an Oranjestad, Aruba, nightclub with van der Sloot and two other men, brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe. She was visiting the island with about 100 classmates to celebrate their graduation from Mountain Brook High School in suburban Birmingham, Alabama.

Van der Sloot was arrested twice in Aruba in connection with Holloway's disappearance, but was never charged. He has denied responsibility for her disappearance.

In the interview, van der Sloot said he feels guilty about his father's fatal heart attack, for not listening to his mother and for telling lies, as well as his past behavior.

"I was doing a lot of things that I shouldn't have been doing, and mostly only going out all the night and sleeping all the day," he said, describing himself as "impulsive."

Asked why he's told so many different stories about the Holloway case, he said, "There were people who were paying me to make up stories, and I was really good at making up stories. Everybody keeps coming at you asking questions ... if you want something, I'll tell you whatever you want to hear, sure."

Still, he said, he has "misused the situation for my own advantage." He said he feels bad about that and would take it back if he had the opportunity.

It's a familiar refrain, said John Q. Kelly, an attorney for Holloway's mother, Beth Twitty.

"He's always a victim. He's always seeking attention. He's always misunderstood and someday he's absolutely going to tell the truth," Kelly said on NBC. "... He's a pathological liar."

He said it was van der Sloot who contacted him about revealing the location of Holloway's body in exchange for payment. "We knew he was going to lie, and was going to make up the basis for wire fraud," Kelly said.

"It's attention-seeking behavior, as simple as that," he said. "He wants to be in the spotlight ... he just can't help himself."


Van der Sloot would not answer questions about the Flores case, saying it is "not in my best interest to talk about it at all." But he maintains police tricked him into making a confession, saying they would not let him call his mother, talk to anyone or arrange for an attorney.

Police said van der Sloot admitted that he attacked Flores, 21, on May 30 after she read an e-mail in his computer connected with the Holloway case. After killing Flores, police say, van der Sloot took money and bank cards from her wallet and fled to Chile, where he was arrested June 3.

He was returned the next day to Peru.

Asked about the extortion case, van der Sloot said, "I have had five years long that people have just been blaming me for something, and yeah, I have a lot of anger built up because of that." He said the Holloway family kept insisting he had information, and wanted to give him the money, so he thought, "I've already told a lot of different stories. I'll do it again." He added, "I know it's very wrong."

On Twitty's reaction to that statement, Kelly said, "I think in deference to Beth, I won't repeat what she said about what he had to say."

He said he isn't surprised that van der Sloot admitted the extortion, saying he has more than three weeks of e-mails between himself and van der Sloot, as well as audio and videotapes.


Van der Sloot said in the interview he wished he'd gone along with his mother's plan and sought psychiatric treatment, but instead he took the money and went to Peru to gamble, according to NBC.

Van der Sloot also spoke about Flores' family, saying, "I feel really bad that her family had to lose a daughter. It really does hurt me. I think about it all the time."

Asked if he will ever disclose what happened, he said, "When I speak to the judge, and the time is right, I'm going to tell the whole truth, absolutely."

"I've got 20 e-mails where he says he's very sorry for what happened, he's going to tell the truth, absolutely," Kelly said. "... He's just incapable of it."

He said if van der Sloot ever does tell the truth, he believes it will be out of a sense of self-preservation and fear -- not his conscience or respect for either Holloway's or his own family.


In the interview, van der Sloot acknowledged he has a "web of problems. But I created all of them myself, so yeah, I have to deal with it now, deal with the consequences."

Van der Sloot also admitted he extorted money from Holloway's family in an interview with a Dutch newspaper. His attorney in the Flores case suggested Monday that his comments may have been mis-translated.

In that interview, van der Sloot told the Telegraph he wanted to "get back at Natalee's family. Her parents have been making my life tough for years."

"When they offered to pay for the girl's location, I thought: 'Why not?'" he said.

"Maybe there were some mistakes in the translation," said attorney Maximo Alteza, who said he is not involved in the Holloway case.

Also Monday, a Peruvian court voted 2-1 to reject van der Sloot's contention that he is being held unlawfully, but the court requires three votes to secure a decision. Alteza said that a fourth jurist will hear the case and cast a vote at a public hearing next week. If that judge votes in favor of van der Sloot, a fifth judge will hear the case to break the tie.

Alteza said that van der Sloot's constitutional rights have been violated and he "could be released because of the mistakes made by the police during the investigation."

But Kelly pointed out Tuesday that if he is released, van der Sloot will be held in Alabama on the charges related to extortion.

Judges divided over Van der Sloot appealPublished on 7 September 2010 - 8:27am

Three judges in the Peruvian capital Lima have failed to reach agreement on suspected killer Joran van der Sloot’s appeal to have his confession to the police dismissed.

The authorities in Lima have announced that a fourth judge is now to consider Van der Sloot’s request. His initial motion was rejected, but he filed an appeal. Two judges granted his request but the third rejected it. Under Peruvian law, three judges have to unanimously rule in favour or against an appeal, which is why a fourth judge is now to consider it.

Joran van der Sloot argues that the lawyer who was present during his interrogation was not appointed according to regulations and that the interpreter was not authorised. Van der Sloot is suspected of killing Peruvian Stephany Flores in his Lima hotel room on 30 May. He confessed to the crime during police interrogations.
