The Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, imprisoned in Peru, is challenging his deportation from Chile. The issue will be addressed by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights on November 18, reported his Peruvian lawyer in the United States, Aldo Cotrina, Friday in an interview with the Peruvian TV channel ATV +.

The Dutchmand was deported unlawfully in June 2010, because he didn't get legal assistance. The Chilean police arrested him after the Peruvian authorities issued an international arrest warrant. Van der Sloot was wanted in Peru, because the Peruvian Stephany Flores was found dead in his hotel room.

Joran van der Sloot is a Dutch national who was convicted of the murder of Peruvian student Stephany Flores on May 30, 2010, and is suspected of involvement in the disappearance of American Natalee Holloway in Aruba on May 30, 2005. Van der Sloot was arrested on June 3, 2010 in Chile and detained in the Peruvian capital Lima. On January 13, 2012 he was sentenced to 28 years in prison for the murder of Flores, a fine and deportation from Peru after serving his punishment.

The lawyer asks that the entire process for the murder of Flores in Lima be redone and that Van der Sloot receive a compensation of 10 million euros.
