Anita Van Der Sloot Hugen by the Latest Allegations Against Her Son Joran Van der Sloot
Anita van der Sloot is “shocked” by the latest allegations against her son Joran van der Sloot. The lawyer who is representing the family, Bert de Rooij, spoke to Anita van der Sloot by telephone. He was supposed to visit a Dutch mental institution, but he disappeared abruptly in May. He left a note saying he was going to Peru. The family returned to Aruba when their father Paul died.
Van der Sloot currently serves a 28-year sentence in Peru. However, she has never been charged with the murder of Natalee Holloway. Beth Holloway, her mother, spent many years looking for her daughter. This summer’s “20/20” featured her emotional return from Aruba. She spent many days searching for her daughter on the island. This case has touched many lives, but many are left wondering: “Where is she?”
Van der Sloot was charged in the U.S. District Court of Northern Alabama. A warrant was issued through Interpol. On 30 June, a federal grand jury formally indicted her on a charge of extortion. The indictment also seeks the forfeiture of the $25,100 she paid Holloway for Elizabeth Smart’s abduction.
Van der Sloot, who was writing a rambling note from jail, claimed that she was being beat to death by Shining Path rebels. She was also arrested for the 2005 disappearance of Alabama high school student Natalee Holloway, and remains the chief suspect. This case is still being investigated. So, it is crucial that Van der Sloot is released on bail.
Despite her guilt, Van der Sloot has confessed to killing the teenager. She initially claimed her innocence, but her plea fits into her defense strategy. Peru’s laws do not have life sentences for murder. Capital punishment has been abolished in all but the most extreme circumstances, such as robbery. In cases involving robbery, however, life sentences are often given.
Van der Sloot gave a few workshops in Caracas and Valencia before her disappearance. Van der Sloot also held a final exhibit in Aruba where she taught glass beading and sold ornaments for charity. She also attended a class in the Netherlands where she was a guest artist at a prestigious art show. And she was just one of many notable people to be recognized with a Nobel Peace Prize.
Flores’ lawyer filed suit against the Aruban government for unjust detention after her arrest. Her lawyer argued for monetary damages for herself and her family. While her lawyer won, the award was overturned on appeal. The legal fees left her family’s finances exhausted. However, after her arrest, she managed to land a job as the managing partner of the law firm representing her.
Joran van der Sloot was also a student at the Dutch University. He was the main suspect in the unsolved killing of Stephany Flores, Lima, Peru on the fifth anniversary Holloway’s disappearance. Paul van der Sloot was his father and a prominent Aruba lawyer. He is also accused of blackmailing Natalee Holloway’s mother, Anita Van der Sloot.
