Dutchman Joran van der Sloot could be released from prison come September should the prosecution in Peru fail to file its case against him.

Van der Sloot is accused of killing a young female college student, Stephany Flores, he met while attending the Latin American Poker Tour in Lima.

"We are worried because Peruvian law says that if a suspect's trial doesn't begin within 18 months after his arrest, authorities are obligated to set the suspect free," Ricardo Flores, the dead woman's father, told CNN.

Mr. Flores said the prosecutor in the case, Miriam Riveros Castellares, is "not moving with the speed that a case of this magnitude merits."

Investigators delivered their case to the prosecution in June. 

"We're asking that either the prosecutor file charges or that authorities remove her from this case and name somebody else," he said.

He is currently being held in the notorious Castro Castro Prison.

Van der Sloot remains the primary suspect in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in his native Aruba six years ago.
