The transfer of Joran van der Sloot from a maximum-security jail in southern Peru to a prison in Lima is the most significant development in the case since Natalee Holloway disappeared in 2005. This step is being taken in preparation for his future extradition to the United States, where he will be charged with extortion and fraud in connection with an alleged conspiracy to extort money from Holloway’s family following her abduction. The transfer schedule is still unknown.
The Dutchman has requested that his attorney not file an appeal against his transfer to the United States. It has come to light in recent days that when incarcerated in Peru for the murder of Stephany Flores, he was brutally abused. His attorney thinks the beating may have been the product of prison gang norms rather than the extradition process.
Van der Sloot’s extradition to the US is scheduled for early June. He is accused of attempting to extort money from Holloway’s family by offering false information about the location of her remains in exchange for a large sum of money. 18-year-old American Holloway went missing during a senior class trip to Aruba in 2005, and van der Sloot, who was 17 at the time, was identified as a suspect but was never charged. He later confessed to making up the story about her burial location.
After van der Sloot’s false confession, he reportedly went on to murder Stephany Flores in Peru in 2010. He was sentenced to 28 years in prison for her murder and has remained incarcerated in Peru since then. Despite his conviction, van der Sloot has received attention and support from “fans” around the world, some of whom have sent him letters and money.
No one has been charged in connection with Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, and she was legally declared dead in 2012. The extradition of van der Sloot to the US is seen as a step towards seeking justice for the alleged extortion and fraud against Holloway’s family.
