Van Der Sloot Sues

Joran Van Der Sloot, who is now facing murder charges in Peru after escaping justice for allegedly killing Natalee Holloway, is getting ready to sue his original lawyer in the Peru case.

Apparently it appears the original representative pretended to be a public attoerney when he was really a lawyer who has a private practice.

Said van der Sloot's spokesperson, "We have searched the name of Luz Romero Chinchay in the list of public defenders provided by the Ministry of Justice and her name was not on that list. We do not know why the police called this lawyer. We want to know who paid for her because my client did not."

Joran van der Sloot has sued the lawyer who represented him during a police interrogation on the day that authorities say the Dutchman confessed to killing a Peruvian woman, his current attorney said Saturday. Maximo Altez told The Associated Press he filed suit Friday charging attorney Luz Romero Chinchay with misrepresentation, abuse of authority and conspiracy to commit a crime. Altez said the initial lawyer "pretended to be a public advocate when she is actually a private attorney."
