"The authorities haven't confirmed anything with me," he said in a telephone interview. "It's pretty much total silence."

Dutch playboy Joran van der Sloot was arrested twice but never charged in the case.

He is currently being held in Peru's Castro Castro prison in connection with accusations he killed 21-year-old Peruvian woman, Stephany Ramirez Flores.
