    Joran van der Sloot is suing the Chilean government for $13 million, alleging that country violated his civil rights when it extradited him to Peru last year to face murder charges. “We can’t say that because someone is accused of killing a person, you can violate all their human rights,” said van der Sloot’s Peruvian lawyer, Aldo Cotrina, who said he expects to file a similar document next week in Peru. Van der Sloot, 24, has been accused of killing Stephany Flores, 21, last year in a hotel room in Peru, and he was arrested a few days later in Chile. He has long been suspected of the 2005 murder of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, and he also faces extradition to the U.S. in Holloway’s murder.
