Reports had surfaced that the Peruvian police handed over a disc from the Dutchman's computer to the FBI which they believed might help finally crack the case involving the Alabama teenager who went missing in Aruba in 2005.

But Navarro has poured cold water on these hopes by claiming the FBI are "wasting their time" with this latest line of inquiry.

He told "The computer will now not be opened up until April 18, 2011, but they will not find any information about Natalee Holloway.

"We are not worried. The FBI they are wasting their time looking for such evidence, we are not worried about it at all.

"I have spoken with Joran and he is not concerned that anything will be discovered."

Peruvian police high tech official Oscar Gonzalez claimed that "there is additional information that could be of interest" in the confiscated computer of Van der Sloot, who is currently locked-up in Peru's Castro Castro prison waiting to stand trial for the murder of Peruvian college student, Stephany Flores.

Van der Sloot's lawyer recently entered a temporary insanity plea on behalf of his client.

It's alleged Flores was murdered by Van der Sloot after she started digging through his computer and found information pertaining to Holloway.

But Navarro disputes these claims also as he prepares to launch his defense of his controversial client.

He said: "Stephany went over to his computer and started asking him about Natalee and they started pushing and fighting, that kind of thing.

"She did not find any direct information about the case."

Flores was killed in Van der Sloot's Lima hotel room five years to the day that Holloway disappeared in Aruba; she had been bludgeoned and asphyxiated.

A lawyer for Flores' family called the proposed insanity plea "absurd," saying that given all the factors in the case, Van der Sloot deserved to spend a minimum of 25 years in prison.

"The manner in which the suspect killed Stephany evidenced disproportionate violence," attorney Edward Alvarez said.
