Watch Kidnapping Freddy Heineken
The kidnapping of Freddy Heineken, CEO of the brewing company Heineken International and one of the richest people in the Netherlands made national and international news. In 1983, a group of guys that had been friends since childhood pulled off one the most popular kidnapping schemes in broad daylight on the streets of Amsterdam. The ransom was 35 million Dutch guilders. At gunpoint, these guys kidnapped the Heineken beer heir. With the ransom being the largest ransom ever paid, these guys surely thought they would get away with it, and they did for awhile. Do the crime, pay the time.
