Joran van der Sloot – Dumb In Any Language!


Just two weeks ago Joran van der Sloot’s name made headlines.  A photo of van der Sloot and three other prisoners from Castro Castro prison hit the wires.

Trujillo Ospina, faces a murder trial in the contract killing of Peruvian entrepreneur Myriam Fefer, while Smith is accused of killing his Peruvian wife, dismembering her and stuffing her body in a suitcase that fishermen later found offshore.

Jailers are currently being disciplined for taking and releasing the photo.

Now, van der Sloot is making international headlines again!

“I wanted to get back at Natalee’s family – her parents have been making my life tough for five years. When they offered to pay for the girl’s location, I thought: ‘Why not’?

With that statement to the Dutch paper, De Telegraaf, van der Sloot openly admitted guilt to the extortion charge he was indicted for back in June.

Maximo Altez, his attorney said that maybe there was a ‘mistake’ in the translation.  He also said his client was not paid for the interview.

When has this Dutchman not been paid for an interview?

van der Sloot is currently sitting in Peru’s Castro Castro prison for allegedly killing Stephany Flores in his hotel room in on May 30 – 5 years to the day after Natalee Holloway disappeared.

van der Sloot contends he is being held unlawfully and that he was intimidated into confessing to the murder and not provided with an interpreter.

There’s that pesky a ‘mistake’ in the translation again!

The courts are currently reviewing that contention and voted 2-1 to reject van der Sloot’s claim.  Peruvian courts require 3 votes so a fourth Judge will now review the case.

van der Sloot, 22, could face one count of wire fraud and one count of extortion in the U.S. for trying to extort more than $250,000 from the Holloways.

Dutch, English, Spanish?  Seems to make no difference with this little Dutch clown boy – stupid is as stupid does!

Altez asserts because of police error, van der Sloot’s rights have been violated. “It doesn’t matter if he is innocent or guilty,” he said. (emphasis is mine)

Hmmmmm, there is a ‘certain defense team’ in Florida that may want to engage Mr. Altez – seems he would fit right in!

    Hmmm… Altez would fit right in. He seems to be a master of “translation spin”. I could see him using this with Casey Anthony. Police violated her rights because they didn’t have the proper translator for “psycho-lies” to English!
