Natalee Holloway Suspect Joran van der Sloot to Be Extradited to America to Face Justice

Joran van der Sloot, the prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway, will finally be extradited to the United States.

Holloway, an American citizen, vanished while on a high school graduation class trip in Aruba.

However, van der Sloot  managed to escape justice.

But the law caught up with him when he killed another woman, this time in Peru.

He is in jail for that killing, which he admitted to, and now will come to America to face justice.

Holloway’s mother, Beth Holloway, said: “In May 2005 my 18-year-old daughter Natalee Holloway left Birmingham for Aruba to attend her high school graduation trip and was never seen again.

“She was abducted and murdered there.

“Now almost exactly eighteen years later, her perpetrator, Joran van der Sloot, has been extradited to Birmingham to answer for his crimes.

“He has been in prison in Peru for murdering another young girl there named Stephany Flores in 2010.

“While I will have much more to say later about what is happening, for now I want to express my sincere gratitude to President Dina Boluarte, the President of Peru, the warm people of Peru, the family of Stephany Flores, the FBI in Miami, Florida and in Birmingham, Alabama, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Birmingham, the U.S. Embassy in Peru and the Peruvian Embassy in the U.S., my longtime attorney John Q. Kelly who has worked tirelessly on this case, and George Seymore and Marc Wachtenheim of Patriot Strategies.

“Most importantly, I especially want to thank Greta Van Susteren who has become a very close friend and who has worked diligently with me for 18 years investigating and working to get justice, never giving up.

“I was blessed to have had Natalee in my life for 18 years, and as of this month, I have been without her for exactly 18 years.

“She would be 36 years old now.

“It has been a very long and painful journey, but the persistence of many is going to pay off.

“Together, we are finally getting justice for Nataleee.”

Peru’s Minister of Justice and Human Rights Daniel Maurate Romero said his country agreed to temporarily hand him over “for his prosecution in the United States for the alleged commission of the crimes of extortion and fraud, to the grievance of Elizabeth Ann Holloway,”

Van der Sloot is serving a 28-year prison sentence for the murder of 21-year-old Peruvian Stephany Flores in 2010.

Gustavo Meza-Cuadra, Peru’s ambassador to the U.S., said “This action will enable a process that will help to bring peace to Mrs. Holloway and to her family, who are grieving in the same way that the Flores family in Peru is grieving for the loss of their daughter.”
