What also happens a lot is that the Queen of The Netherlands asks the royal family of a certain country to release the prisoners and most of the time they will.
But I don't know if The Netherlands has an agreement with Peru or if Peru has a royal family (Queen or King). If they have an agreement, van der Sloot has a serious chance of getting deported back to The Netherlands. I don't think the Dutch Queen will do anything to get van der Sloot back though, lol.. He's not very popular here (I am Dutch).
No, they don't have queens and kings in South America (at least, I don't think they do).
You are correct that Peru has some of that exchange stuff with some other countries. No idea if they have such a treaty or agreement with the Dutch but I do know they have something like that with the U.S.
Somewhat coincidentally, just a few days ago a kind of well known (for those who were following it) American was just released on parole from her prison stay in Peru. She served 15 years after being accused of helping terrorists down there. Evidently she could have applied to serve her sentence in the U.S. (which might not have been granted, not sure) but opted not to do so. She still has to live in Peru for 5 more years as a condition of her parole and is in an apartment in the same Miraflores district where Joran van der sloot's hotel was (it's a popular and well known district).
