BRUSSELS – The Dutch authorities have asked Belgium to seize two homes owned by Ria E., the girlfriend of murdered crime boss John Mieremet.
The couple reportedly gave money to real-estate magnate Willem Endstra to manage. Endstra was killed in 2004. The Dutch and Belgian authorities raided the homes of Ria E. and her son in Neerpelt, Belgium on Wednesday.
Much of Mieremet's bookkeeping was confiscated in the raids. Police also found a firearm and ammunition. The Netherlands wants to confiscate the criminal money and has made a preliminary estimate of the criminal assets at EUR 13.4 million, Dutch television programme Nova reported on Wednesday.
