Suspect in Natalee Holloway disappearance Joran Van der Sloot Being Evaluated for Extradition to US from Peru for Extortion Charges



Just when Joran Van der Sloot thought it was safe to go back in the Aruba water … well, he won’t be doing that for some time as he faces a 28 year sentence in a Peruvian prison for the murder of Stephany Flores, Van der Sloot faces new issues.

According to Maximo Altez, Joran van der Sloot’s Peruvian attorney, Van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruna in 2005 now faces possible extradition to the United States. Joran Van der Sloot was charged  with extortion in Alabama for allegedly receiving $25,000 from Beth Holloway in order to tell her where to find the remains of Natalee Holloway. Needless to say, after Van der Sloot had received the monies, he lied to Beth Holloway as to the location where her daughter could be found.

A lawyer for Joran van der Sloot says Peru is evaluating a request by the United States to extradite the jailed Dutchman, who is the main suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.

The 24-year-old also faces extortion charges in Alabama for allegedly receiving $25,000 from Holloway’s mother to tell her where to find the remains of her daughter, who was 18 when she disappeared while on vacation.

CNN is reporting, the extradition process could be completed in the next three months.

According to court documents obtained through Altez, a Peruvian judge has approved a U.S. request for provisional detention. This is the first step in the extradition process between Peru and the United States. The document says a formal extradition request has yet to be submitted, but will follow.

The document names the U.S. Embassy as a party in the proceedings. InSession reached out Monday for comment but did not receive a response. The Peruvian Justice Ministry also did not return a request for comment.

The only hold-up to the extradition is van der Sloot’s appeal, which should be finished in about a month, Altez said.

“I think he will be extradited within the next three months,” said Altez. “He will go to trial in the United States. Once he is sentenced, he will return to Peru to finish serving his 28 years, and then go back to the States to serve whatever sentence he gets there.”

Imagine after all this time Joran Van der Sloot having to face justice in the United States? Imagine what those interrogatories and depositions would look like. If this case goes to trial and is televised, it would be the single most watched “reality TV” ever.

      We own your ass, Joran. I knew one day you would be coming back to the USA in chains.

      God is good. He takes his jolly time but he knows what he is doing.

      Maybe they can arrange a short stop at Gitmo for some special interrogation on the way to the U.S.

      Getting some real answers for Beth and Dave should be first on the agenda.

      Even if The Little Sporter is extradited and faces charges for extortion, what of the fact that Aruba/The NL never charged him for the dissappearance/murder of Natalee Holloway?

      For Beth and Dave Holloway to have to sit through this crap again is merely opening up a deep wound again. Although I would love to see it, it’s really just not fair. It’s sad and bittersweet and the most painful thing of all is that this family will never see Justice like the Flores’. Even after VDS finishes his 28 years, this does not compensate for the violent loss of a loved one.

      We Never Forget you, Natalee. <3
