Van der Sloot files complaint against police
Joran van der Sloot has filed a complaint with Peruvian police claiming that his constitutional rights and his right to a defense were violated after his arrest in connection with the killing of a Peruvian woman.
According to a copy of the complaint, obtained by CNN, van der Sloot alleges that his right to due process was denied.
The complaint, given to the Peruvian National Police’s internal investigation unit, singles out the department’s homicide director, Col. Miguel Angel Canlla Ore, and those who work for him.
Van der Sloot said he has been detained without a judicial order.
“I have been denied my right to a proper defense, by imposing an attorney that seems to be the girlfriend of a cop on duty who works in this police department,” the complaint states.
He also alleges that police took his laptop and searched his communications and correspondence without a judicial order.
