April 5, 2023 –ROTTERDAM – The convicted arms dealer Divainy K. (29) who was arrested on Tuesday is from Curaçao. He is the ninth suspect for the murder of Peter R. de Vries and seems to have a link to the group that is held responsible for observing and later filming the crime journalist.
The two filmmakers had driven to Amsterdam in a Peugeot, which was once registered to Divainy K.
In the weeks before the murder, K. had contact with Ludgardo S., a resident of Curaçao from Tilburg, who, according to the detective, directed the two who were filming. would have paid for a plane ticket for Ludgardo S. so that he could fly from Curaçao to the Netherlands. In a Whatsapp conversation between the two, they seem to be talking about the impending attack on De Vries. “The hour of truth is approaching,” Ludgardo S. sends to K.
Divainy K. is currently serving a five-year sentence in Veenhuizen prison for arms and drug trafficking.
It is still a guess as to the exact role of the Curaçaoan K., the Public Prosecution Service (OM) does not want to release anything about it now.
The only thing his lawyer Mark Nillesen wants to say is that his client denies having anything to do with it.
