Joran van der Sloot living like a king
Dutch murder suspect Joran van der Sloot has been accused of “living like a king” in the Peruvian prison where he is being held on suspicion of having murdered Stephany Flores. The 21-year-old woman was found dead in his hotel room in Lima in May.
The father of Ms Flores has now complained on Peruvian television that Mr Van der Sloot is enjoying all sorts of privileges in Lima’s Castro Castro prison. The Dutch suspect is said to have a single cell in the overcrowded jail, be allowed to walk as much as he wants in a prison courtyard and even to be able to buy marijuana.
Mr Van der Sloot was the main suspect in the Natalee Holloway case. The American teenager was last seen in 2005 with him on Aruba in the Caribbean where he lived. Citing lack of credible evidence, the Aruban justice authorities have not pressed charges against him.
