"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.

A Dutch Reporter Who Covered Gangsters Dies After Being Shot In Amsterdam
July 15, 202111:10 AM ET
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Peter R. de Vries, a renowned Dutch journalist who fearlessly reported on the violent underworld of the Netherlands and campaigned to breathe new life into cold cases, has died at age 64 after being shot in a brazen attack last week, his family said Thursday.

"Peter fought to the end, but was unable to win the battle," the family said in a statement sent to Dutch media.
 
"Peter has lived by his conviction: 'On bended knee is no way to be free,'" the family statement said. "We are unbelievably proud of him and at the same time inconsolable."

De Vries had been fighting for his life in an Amsterdam hospital since the attack. The statement said he died surrounded by loved ones and requested privacy for De Vries' family and partner "to process his death in peace." Funeral arrangements were not immediately announced.

Farewell Peter R. de Vries is Wednesday and Thursday in Carré
The farewell of Peter R. de Vries will take place in Carré on Wednesday and Thursday. RTL Nieuws announced this on Sunday. Everyone is welcome that first day, Thursday is for family and loved ones.

Anna Herter 18-07-21, 19:06 Last update: 10:23

People who want to give Peter R. de Vries a final greeting can visit Carré on Wednesday. That RTL News published yesterday. Thursday is reserved for family and loved ones.

The theater is open on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for anyone who wants to stop by. In the obituary that was full page in Dutch newspapers on Saturday, the family van De Vries already announced that 'everyone to whom Peter has meant something in his life' is invited to come and say goodbye to him in Carré.

The conditions for a visit to the farewell are described on the RTL Boulevard website . For example, no corona test or vaccination certificate is required, but those present are expected to keep one and a half meters away from each other.

'Great crowds are taken into account', according to RTL Boulevard , 'so everyone is kindly requested to keep the goodbye at the bier as short as possible, so that as many people as possible get the chance to pay him a last tribute.'

Various memorial places
In a number of places in the city it was already possible to commemorate De Vries. For example, approximately five hundred people visited the Westerkerk on Friday. There they could stop by for four hours for a moment of silence and reflection or to light a candle for the deceased crime journalist.

The Nicholas Basilica on Prins Hendrikkade still offers this option, every day between twelve and five o'clock in the afternoon. Visitors can also sign a condolence register for De Vries there.

In the Lange Leidsedwarsstraat, where De Vries was shot in broad daylight after a performance in RTL Boulevard on Tuesday 6 July, flowers have been laid at the site of the attack since that day . People come there incessantly to commemorate the murder of the crime reporter who died of his injuries on Thursday.

I've seen so many beautiful tributes for Peter R. de Vries.  I've read that more than 7500 lined up to pay their respects during the public viewing, and that radio stations all played his favorite song in concert on the day of the private service and final burial.  I've been listening to one of his last interviews right now, of course I can understand very little, but I still love listening to his voice and as always...he's so handsome!  He talked about Joran van der Sloot for a moment in the interview I'm watching.  In several tributes it was mentioned that he wrote many letters and left little notes in sometimes hidden places to surprise those he loved.  He'd reportedly said at some time that the spoken word is for a moment but a letter can be read over and over.  We were all witness to his skill as an investigative journalist and fearless crime fighter.  We saw him give hope to many that had lost all hope of answers in their cases.  But it has been heartwarming for me to learn more about the private side of him, that he carefully kept very private; and understandably so in his line of work. 

I'll always remember the way he looked at Paulus van der Sloot and Joran van der Sloot.  As stated below in a recent tribute, without a doubt, he knew what kind of meat was in their tubs.     

He was a good man, kind man, and made an indelible impression on the hearts of many; including mine.  He will never be forgotten.  an angelic monkey

For Peter
Robert Moszkowicz commemorates his friend Peter R. de Vries. “I have never met a person who was as straightforward and uncompromisingly clinging to his ideas and principles as Peter R. de Vries.”

Published on:22/07 | 2021

Written by:Robert MoszkowiczI

At the end of 1986 I went through a difficult period.

Through my father, Max Moszkowicz Sr., Peter de Vries had heard that I was in a precarious position.

I was stuck.

One day, shortly after I ended up in this position, I received, totally unexpectedly, by 'internal' mail an encouraging letter from Peter R. de Vries.

At that time, Peter and I only knew each other superficially through my father, from a chat here and a drink there.

This did not prevent him from sending me a poem which I cherish.

If you think, 'I am defeated',
defeat is a fact.
If you think, 'I won't budge',
you will eventually win the battle.
If you think, 'I can't make it',
the setback is coming.
For the skipping of the scales,
Depends chiefly on will.
Despondents perish
through their doubts, through their fears,
Fighters win by miracle
Every time the toughest race

This poem by Peter touched me deeply, and it certainly helped me get through that difficult period.

After that I got up again, and I got my life back on track afterwards.

This was Peter all over.

Some time after that, when I was a lawyer again and I was doing a controversial criminal case against a Turkish suspect who had made ABN AMRO four million guilders lighter, we got in touch again and since then we have often met and talked to each other, also in business terms.

On all important occasions for me and my family, Peter was always present, including the premiere of the documentary about my life, of my eldest son Max.

I cherish the friendship with Peter and keep unforgettable memories of it.

I have never met a person who was so straightforward and uncompromisingly stuck to his ideas and principles as Peter R. de Vries.

Peter was someone who could see right through someone and immediately knew what kind of meat he had in the tub.

Unfortunately, he was unable to look the cowardly perpetrator of his murder straight in the eye, but was attacked from behind by this false murderer.

It is incomprehensible to me why the government and in particular the minister of 'Security' and Justice and all sections that fall under his ministry have not of their own accord tried to monitor or promote Peter's safety by taking the appropriate measures, precisely because it was known that Peter was on a 'black list', even though it was known that Peter himself had rejected intense security.

That could have made all the difference…

As far as is now known, the government has seriously failed to do so with the currently known consequences.

Peter is inimitable in all facets of his personality and of what he has achieved and accomplished in his field.

Peter is indeed a hero.

It is incomprehensible that Peter has not already received the appropriate honors from this and for that during his lifetime.

Peter will have no successor, because he was unique in every way and because for the time being no one will arise who can even come close to him.

Yes, it was very shocking and sad.  Just terrible, so senseless and such a loss.  There were so many beautiful tributes for him.
