Peru will allow the extradition to the US of the main suspect in the unsolved disappearance of student Natalee Holloway on the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba in 2005.
Joran van der Sloot, a Dutch citizen, is charged with extortion and wire fraud concerning payments made to him by the Holloway family after their daughter’s disappearance.
Ms Holloway, who lived in Birmingham, Alabama, was 18 when she vanished while on a trip with classmates to Aruba.
She was last seen leaving a bar with van der Sloot, who was then 18 years old.
He was detained and identified as a suspect weeks later, along with two Surinamese brothers.
Her disappearance sparked years of news coverage and true-crime podcasts.
Ms Holloway’s body was never found and no charges were filed in the case.
