Joran Van der Sloot Trial in Murder of Stephany Flores in Peru Begins Today … Then Extortion Charges in US?
Finally, two murders later … Joran Van der Sloot will be tried in a court of law, it’s been a long time in coming.
Joran Van der Sloot murder trial of 21 year old Stephany Flores begins in Peru today. Van der Sloot is accused of murdering Stephany Flores on May 30, 2010, five years to the day of the disappearance and presumed death of Natalee Holloway in Aruba. Joran Van der Sloot admits to killing Stephany Flores; however, he claims, as per his attorney Luis Jimenez Navarro, that the murder was not premeditated. Joran Van der Sloot was charged last year with “qualified murder” and simple robbery, that together could carry a sentence of up to 30 years in prison.
Joran van der Sloot goes on trial Friday in Peru, ready to admit to killing a 21-year-old woman while planning to fight more stringent charges that could land him more time in prison, his lawyer said.
About six and a half years ago, the Dutch national was considered the prime suspect in the case of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, who vanished while on a graduation trip to the Caribbean island of Aruba. He was arrested twice but never charged in connection with Holloway’s disappearance, which is still unsolved.
Yet van der Sloot’s trial in another high-profile case, which his lawyer said has a tenuous connection with the Holloway story, is set to go forward Friday.
The 24-year-old is accused of killing Stephany Flores in his Lima hotel room in May 2010. Police say that he took money and bank cards from her wallet and fled to Chile, where he was arrested a few days later.
According to Radio Netherlands, United States authorities are currently involved in negotiations with the Peruvian government to have Van der Sloot extradited to the US for trial immediately after his trial in Peru ends to face trial and extortion charges as he tried to extort $250,000 from Beth Holloway, mom of missing Natalee Holloway.
One thing is for certain, Peru has an opportunity to do what Aruba refused to do … provide justice for a murder victim. This time Joran Van der Sloot does not have pappa Sloot and his connections to get him out of this one. Joran, its time to face the music for the first time in your life.

It’s been a long time in coming, but finally the little Dutch boy Joran Van der Sloot’s murder trial is set for January 2012.
Joran Van der Sloot, the main suspect in the 2005 death and disappearance of Natlee Holloway in Aruba, will finally face justice for his involvement in the murder of 21 year old Stephany Flores in Peru. Van der Sloot’s murder trial will begin on January 6, 2011. Van der Sloot is being tried with a “qualified murder” and simple robbery, which carry sentences of 28 years and two years. However, the family of Stephany Flores is still holding out for aggravated murder against Joran Van der Sloot, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. Van der Sloot is accused of killing Stephany Flores five years to the day that he was also accused of killing Natalee Holloway. Of course there is no coincidence there. Van der Sloot had initially confessed to killing Flores, but following his same MO as with the Natalee Holloway case, Joran retracted his confession. Van der Sloot had also confessed and implicated himself in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway; however, Aruba authorities let his go free. Thank you Aruba for allowing this predator to go free and kill again.
Natalee Holloway, Joran Van der Sloot, Stephany Flores
The timetable from the Superior Court of Lima came days after a panel of judges ruled against having the Dutch national face an even more stringent slate of charges, as the victim’s family members had requested. Instead, he will face the original charges levied against him — which, if he is convicted on all counts, could lead to a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
Van der Sloot is accused of killing Stephany Flores in his Lima hotel room last year. Police say he took money and bank cards from her wallet and fled to Chile, where he was arrested a few days later.
He was charged in September with “qualified murder” and simple robbery, which carry sentences of 28 years and two years, respectively.
However, this is not the end of the justice line for Joran Van der Sloot. The sporter also faces extradition charges to the United States in connection with the wire fraud and extortion indictments from a federal grand jury in Alabama in 2010. Joran Van der Sloot attempted to extort $250,000 from Natalee Holloway’s mother, Beth Holloway.
Will there finally be Justice for Stephany? Joran Van der Sloot is finally getting what should have come to him years ago. Just say Karma, baby.
A Tale of Two Murders: Joran Van der Sloot Charged with Murder of Stephany Flores … Beth Holloway Says, “God bless the Peru authorities for handling this thoroughly and professionally”
Call it a tale of two crimes and the tale of how two countries handled the same crime in complete contrast manners. One country lets a sociopath loose on the rest if society to kill again, the other one rightfully charges him with murder and cages the criminal protecting society.
“It was the best of times (Peru), it was the worst of times (Aruba), it was the age of wisdom (Peru), it was the age of foolishness (Aruba), it was the epoch of belief (Peru), it was the epoch of incredulity (Aruba), it was the season of Light (Peru), it was the season of Darkness (Aruba), it was the spring of hope (Peru), it was the winter of despair (Aruba), we had everything before us (Peru), we had nothing before us (Aruba), we were all going direct to Heaven (Peru), we were all going direct the other way (Aruba) –in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good (Peru) or for evil (Aruba), in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
What Aruba could not, would not and never intended to do, Peru saw fit to accomplish at all cost. In Aruba they death with the death and disappearance of an American tourist Natalee Holloway where one of the suspects was a “little Dutch boy” of privilege. In Peru they dealt with the death of a 21 year old local from a prominent family. The common denominator … Joran Van der Sloot. Aruba has never charged Joran Van der Sloot with murder. Conversely, Peru has properly pursued Van der Sloot and charged the “Sporter” with murder. Sadly, had Aruba done their job, charged and convicted Joran Van der Sloot instead of enabling him, Joran would never have been able to travel to Peru and kill again.
In a People magazine interview, Beth Holloway, the mother of Natalee Holloway, who has dealt with endless frustration, cronyism and corruption in Aruba said about the murder charges against Van der Sloot by Peru authorities, “God bless the Peru authorities for handling this thoroughly and professionally.”
With no justice yet for her own daughter, Beth Holloway cautiously cheered yesterday’s decision by authorities in Peru to bring murder charges against Joran van der Sloot – long suspected in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance – for the murder last year of a young woman in Peru.
Joran Van der Sloot has been officially charged with murder in Peru in the death of 21 year old Stephany Flores. Van der Sloot is also be charged with theft. Peru prosecutors are asking for a 30 year prison sentence. Too bad its not life. Van der Sloot was accused of murder after Flores’ lifeless body was found in Joran’s hotel room as he fled the scene. Unlike Aruba, Peru will convict this murdering, sociopath as there is much evidence pointing to his guilt. Joran Van der Sloot killed Flores on May 30, 2010, five years to the day of the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.
Van der Sloot was arrested in June of last year, but was not formally charged until Thursday.
Prosecutors are asking for a 30-year prison sentence and a restitution payment of $73,000 to the family of Stephany Flores. They also charged van der Sloot with theft.
Charged alongside van der Sloot were three Peruvian drivers who allegedly helped him flee into Chile. Prosecutors want five-year prison sentences for them and fines of about $1,800.
According to reports, the trial is supposed to begin in October, 2011. Hopefully Joran will get exactly what he has coming to him. It is really too bad that Aruba never locked up this SOB and took him out of the public. By playing games, corruption and cover up in the death of Natalee Holloway, Joran was allowed and emboldened to kill again.

Maximo Altez , Joran Van der Sloot’s Attorney Quits Case Ahead of Next weeks Court Appearance in Death of Stephany Flores
The rats continue to jump ship from Joran Van der Sloot. The “Little Dutch Boy” is presently without an attorney ahead of his court hearing next week. Was this more scheming by Joran to delay the trial?
Maximo Altez, the defense attorney for Joran Van der Sloot has quit the case prior to next weeks hearing in the murder of 21 year Stephany Flores in Peru. According to De Telegraaf , Maximo Altez walked out on Van der Sloot after quarreling over money and how best to mount his defense. Defense? How about just pleading guilty and throwing yourself on the mercy of the court and stop wasting every ones time? Joran Van der Sloot is charged with the murder of Stephany Flores, on the five year anniversary of the dissapearance and presumed death of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.
Natalee Holloway Missing in Aruba … 6 Years Later and Joran Van der Sloot has Murdered Again, Stephany Flores
Six years later, Natalee Holloway is still missing, Joran Van der Sloot is in prison and still no JUSTICE FOR NATALEE. The result of Aruba’s lack of action in jailing Joran Van der Sloot … another girl is dead.
Beth Holloway has never stopped looking for answers for Natalee
It was May 30, 2005 when Natalee Holloway went missing during a graduation trip to Aruba. She was last seen leaving Carlos N’ Charlie’s with three boys, Joran Van der Sloot, Deepak Kalpoe and Satish Kalpoe, in a car and would never be seen nor heard from again. As Scared Monkeys wrote back in 2005 knowing that Aruba would never let such an incident hurt their precious tourism … This Can’t Be Good For Tourism, Where’s Natalee Holloway.
After all the lies, confessions and continues stories from prime suspect Joran Van der Sloot regarding what happened to Natalee Holloway, Aruba has yet to what happened that fateful night. What we do know is that innocent people do not lie, they don’t have to. So then why the consistent lies from Van der Sloot and the Kalpoes? Beth Holloway said back in 2005 that the three boys know what happened. Many agree. It became obvious to many that no police force could be that incompetent in investigating a missing persons case, presumed homicide. There would have to have been collusion, cronyism and corruption for the Aruban LE to have acted in such a clueless manner.
Aruba’s Justice Minister Rudy Croes confirmed on Thursday that Van der Straten delayed the start of investigations in order to protect his friend, Paulus van der Sloot, the father of Joran who is the main suspect in the case. Paulus was working for the Justice Ministry at the time.
Minister Croes made his public statement about the commissioner’s dallying following critical remarks by Van der Straten about Aruba’s police. Shortly after Natalee’s disappearance in 2005, the Dutch police commissioner was overheard saying “I cannot do this to my friend Paul”.

Joran Van der Sloot - Stephany Flores
As Beth Holloway and the family of Natalee continue to find answers and see answers as to her disappearance and presumed death of the then Alabama teen, Aruba drags its feet and Joran van der Sloot continues on his life of crime.

WATER SEEKS ITS OWN LEVEL …
Who would have thunk it … Joran Van der in trouble again? Say it isn’t so. The “Little Dutch Boy” who is presently in prison in Peru and charged with the death of Stephany Flores and the prime suspect in the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba is reportedly in even more trouble.
According to Dutch News, Joran Van der Sloot has been involved in several stabbing incidents while in the Castro Castro
prison in Peru. What a shock, because Joran was such a model citizen outside of prison, why would any one not think that he would carry on his sociopath ways while in prison? Van der Sloot is alleged to have stabbed three inmates in which one required emergency treatment.
Murder of Stephany Flores in Peru: Joran Van der Sloot Lying Again … Laptop Study Shows that Searches on Natalee Holloway Much Earlier in the Day
LIAR … LIAR!!! THIS COMES AS A SURPRISE TO NO ONE …
If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and acts like a duck, guess what … it just might be a pathological, lying, murderous sociopath.
What a shock, dateline Peru … Joran van der Sloot is lying again when it comes to the murder of a girl. Like we have not seen this act play out all too numerous times in the past. Now Van der Sloot, the Dutch Sporter is lying to save his bacon in Peru in the death of Stephany Flores. Van der Sloot has claims that he murdered Flores in a fit of passion and rage after discovering that she had violated his privacy and has looking up information on his laptop in connection with the death of Natalee Holloway in Aruba.
Stephany Flores did not view any such information on the laptop after accompanying Van derSloot to the Lima hotel room where she was killed on May 30, the technology chief of Peru’s police, Col. Oscar Gonzales, told The Associated Press.
“She didn’t view anything about Holloway. It’s a lie that she tried to ask him about (the case),” Gonzales said.
Information from Joran’s laptop has led investigators in Peru that Van der Sloot has been lying to them. Really, waht was your first thought? The defense by Joran van der Sloot and his attorney was just a lame excuse to try and mitigate Van der Sloot’s sentence and blame the victim in the process. Where have we heard that before? Van der Sloot has lied so many times in an effort to keep himself from the being convicted that it is about time he gets his just desserts.
RNW has provided even further information as to the time line of Joran Van der Sloot and Stephany Flores in the time leading up to and after her death. As the investigation into the laptop has shown, Stephany Flores could not have been looking on Joran’s laptop at the time when she was murdered. The searches were done earlier in the day. So what will Joran Van der Sloot’s next
excuse lie be?
The detectives also found that Flores did not search for information on Natalee Holloway immediately before the murder, as Van der Sloot claims. The laptop was used to search for details of the Holloway case, but much earlier in the day,Dutch website Crimesite reports. Van der Sloot says he killed Flores in a fury when he saw she was reading about his alleged involvement in Holloway’s disappearance.
