Dutch reporter who exposed underworld dead after shooting

BBC, 15 Jul 2021
The Dutch crime reporter Peter R de Vries, who was shot and seriously wounded in central Amsterdam nine days ago, has died.

The 64-year-old was shot in the head minutes after leaving a TV studio.

Mr de Vries had won critical acclaim for his reporting on the Dutch underworld - including the 1983 kidnapping of the beer millionaire Freddy Heineken.

The statement released by his relatives on Thursday said he died "surrounded by the people who love him".
