van der Sloot told a Dutch newspaper that Peruvian Police told that if he signed the papers they gave him, he would be transferred to the Netherlands.

He said in his blind panic he had signed everything, but never knew what was written on them.

Yesterday, the 22 year old was scheduled to appear in a Peruvian court Monday for a hearing into the death of Flores, 21.

van der Sloot was arrested in Chile on June 3 and was returned the next day to Peru, where he faces charges of murder.
