John van den Heuvel is not afraid of Willem Holleeder
John van den Heuvel is Willem Holleeder despite the fact that he’s in jail, still the most dangerous criminal in the Netherlands. The securities and exchange commission is not, however, afraid for him. “But I’ve always realized that I’m dealing with an extremely dangerous person.”
“If he (Holleeder, ed.) is to be transferred to a prison where he may have contact with fellow prisoners and with the outside world, that he thus in a situation in which he is not more 24 hours a day monitored, then he is the most dangerous criminal of the Netherlands”, says Van den Heuvel in conversation with Panorama.
The council believes that the power of Holleeder “maybe bigger than we all think.” Van den Heuvel, tried in 2012 to make contact with Holleeder, who at that time pretty around them. The journalist was hoping the convicted criminal as one of the first to be able to interview.
Van den Heuvel, wrote a letter to the Holleeder which he proposed interviews to do in a villa in the South of France. In CollegeTour las Holleeder the letter, followed by the misdaadjournalist a lot of criticism received.
“That letter was afterwards to friends. (…) In that letter, I became more businesslike, to prepare. Only because I should have known that Holleeder that interview yet would never do,” said Van den Heuvel.
