Exploratory study into contract killings by organized crime groups

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The Netherlands has seen a series of violent contract killings by organised crime groups in recent years. While contract killings are by no means new to the Netherlands (with around twenty to thirty cases a year over the last few decades), there is reason to believe that the nature of the killings has changed.

The key question of this exploratory study was as follows:

What recent developments can be identified in relation to the phenomenon of contract killings by organised crime groups, according to key informants of the police and the Public Prosecution Servicve?
