    This guy's dad is a judge... so he knows how to go through legal loopholes. He narrowly escaped once and is trying same the second time. This time playing the "rights" card.
    Don't let PSYCHOPATHS into civilized society.

    His rights violated? Just wait until the Grey greylings here about this one. I am quite certain they have a few tools in their bags that will let Joran know when his had been violated. Bubba has a nice pink dress for ya as well as a 12" rectal prboe with a flahing little red light on the top. They are all just waiting to drill ya Joran.

    Judge declares request Joran unfounded

    LIMA – The application of Joran van der Sloot to the results of police investigations to annul is not accepted. That made Judge Casique Alvizuri Wilder, who considered the request, said Friday.

    Van der Sloot had asked for the annulment because he said to the head of the homicide investigation police, Colonel Miguel Angel Canlla, had compelled him. There was no official translator present at the hearing and his lawyer would hand the police have been.

    Also, opened his laptop without permission from a judge. Casique court ruled that all questioning the official translator Maurice Stein was present, that a state-appointed lawyer was present and that there was a prosecutor in the investigation to determine whether the law passed.

    Right on Judge !!! Now that this spoiled brat is in Peru he will not get away with murder – this time. I have nothing but disgust for Aruba. This latest girl's murder is due to Aruba's lack of justice. Had they locked him up, had his father not been a judge there and helped cover his tracks, this girl would still be alive!!!

    Hey CNN, one sentence without any facts doesnot make a story. Are you desperate to fill space or what. But, then again it goes with your typical non-reporting style anyway.

    He doesn't have his judge father to get him out of this one and his hussy of a mother is probably raking in the life insurance and hanging out at the local bars looking for young men to seduce while her sociopathic son cries that his rights had been violated. What about the lives of the two young women that he took? I wonder if the thrill of taking the life out of him still excites him as they struggle to break free of hands the last breathe slowly fading from their lungs.

    This is one time that I wish a place like Hostel existed as a form of punishment for monsters like him. I wonder if he will turn up in a comic book years down the road as some villian thus further elevating his image and status. Let's hope not.
    Hang him from the highest palm tree with the shortest rope possible.

      I couldn't agree more!!!! Hope he at least tells Natalee's family where he dumped her body before he's killed by someone in the Peruvian prison.

    If Joran is guilty this impassioned combination of righteous indignation and gallows humor makes sense. Hang him high. But the problem is that in the Holloway case which everuyone is using as a an anchor for the indignation- is still a mystery. The evidence was jut to thin, it amounted to guilt by association. Now with no new evidence about the Holloway case Joran has been convicted in the headlines and in blogs he has been damned. A trial is too good for him the blogs seem to say.

    But a trial, and a fair one is what we need. The problem is motive. Does it make sense on its face to kill someone because they discover on the internet what everyone in the world knew long ago- that he had been as suspect in a murder. The confession -taken obviously without an attorney- raises more questions than it answers.

    The world deserves an answer to the mystery of the Holloway case. But conviction by headline -instant justice-has a frontier justice feel. Unanchored, animated by sensationalism and speculation I predict Joran will be convicted. But because the conviction is not based on a true investigation we may never know the truth,

      «But a trial, and a fair one is what we need.» I can't agree more. Justice must be bound to facts, not opinions, otherwise, it's not justice. I saw a headline saying that they might have found skin under the nails of one of the dead girl. That would be promising. And I hope, that he will rot in jail for very long. Jail is a light torture - well, maybe not in Peru 🙂 - but time has it ways, and maybe he will see the pain he inflicted to so many people, especially the two girl's parents to whom my thoughts and sympathy goes.

      Death penalty is too quick, it's a shame American people don't understand that.

  12. .... And Justice For All

    Well its refreshing to see that the criminal justice system works in Peru, compared to Aruba anyway. Sounds like he using any excuse he can to proclaim his innoce. Looks like he is at the bottom of a short list. The Peruvians have a really solid case here and he knows this.

    Wij plukken wij SOW, dont wij, Joran?

    Fortunately, South America is not full of political correctness or human rights BS. This man will be very luck if he simply stays alive after the press stops talking about him.

    The only violation that is going to happen here is the daily violating of his A$$ while in a Peruvian prison the rest of his miserable life... Just desserts I say...
