Convicted killer Joran van der Sloot has been locked behind bars for more than five years, but that hasn't stopped his scheming! RadarOnline.com and The National ENQUIRER have obtained a bombshell new video that reveals his secret plot to escape from Peru and get extradited to Aruba — or even the United States.
Van der Sloot, 28, has been serving time in Peru's Challapalca prison since 2014 for the 2010 murder of local woman Stephany Flores. It was there that a Radar and ENQUIRER operative obtained the chilling hidden camera footage of the killer. As Radar reported, van der Sloot claimed he would reveal more details of his role in the Natalee Holloway murder in a juicy 500-page tell-all book, and the new footage reveals his secret motivation for becoming an author.
"I have no doubt that if the book gets published, they'll extradite me to Aruba!" he bragged in the video obtained by Radar and The ENQUIRER. But he insisted, "I want to be extradited first before I tell more. If I were to be in Aruba, I wouldn't mind giving my story first to the authorities there, before releasing it as a book so they can confirm everything."
Barring that, could he turn to the U.S. government? The cold-hearted killer claims he wrote to the Minister of Foreign Affairs a few months ago, as well as to a minister in Aruba and the American embassy in Peru to "discuss an arrangement" to get out of Peru by "cooperating" or "to make a deal with the U.S. Justice Dept."
"He'll first have to serve his time in Peru, before he can arrange deals or something with Aruba," Altez told a reporter for the TV program and website.
Nevertheless, could his time in Peru be coming to an end anyways? The deranged Dutchman seems to think so! Elsewhere in the clip he claims that prison reforms in the South American country could lead to his early release.
There are elections in Peru on April 10, and candidate Keiko Fujimori has said her father, Peru's former president, was unfairly sentenced to 25 years behind bars for corruption. Therefore, she has made prison reform a major part of her platform, which appeals to the sick convict.
"The Peruvian government will have a new president soon, and if the candidate is the one that I'm hoping will win, things are going to change," he bragged. "I'm hoping to get released within five years because the candidate's government could make that happen!"
If not, van der Sloot is scheduled to be released in 2038 at the earliest.
