Dutch Poker Killer Suing Victim's Father In $10 Million Lawsuit

Dutch Poker Killer Suing Victim's Father In $10 Million Lawsuit Dutch poker player Van der Sloot is currently behind bars in Peru on suspicion of killing 21 year-old Peruvian student Stephany Flores.
The murder took place in Peru while Van der Sloot was in town to attend the 2010 LAPT Lima, but he disappeared to Chile following the murder only to be arrested then extradited back to Peru a few days later.
Now with a trial date set for  January 6, 2012, Van der Sloot is suing Chile for $10 million in damages for what he claims was a breech of his rights as a suspect when he was initially arrested there and then denied legal counsel and contact his family.
Furthermore, Van der Sloot is also claiming that the then President of Chile  Alan García Pérez, had pressurised the Chilean government to extradite him and so has filed his petition with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
The Dutchman has already admited  killing Stephany Flores in a fit of rage, who was also the daughter of wealthy Peruvian businessman Ricardo Flores, who had previously run for the presidency of Peru.
However, that still hasn’t stopped him naming the murdered girl’s father in the lawsuit, alongside those of then Peruvian president Alan Garcia, former interior minister Octavio Salazarm, and former Police Generala Cesar Guardia and Miguel Hidalgo.
Van der Sloot also remains the prime suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Ann Holloway from the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba in 2005. Van der Sloot’s father was serving as a judge in Aruba at the time when the 18 year-old American vanished.
The 24 year-old Dutchman had previously been arrested on two occasions in connection with the Holloway case. Despite spending three months in jail, Holloway’s body was never found and Van der Sloot was later released without charges.
Van der Sloot is now facing 30 year behind bars in a Peruvian jail for the murder of Stephany Flores.
