Kidnapper wants Hauer film injunction

Oct 21, 2011 | 5:00am EDT

Willem Holleeder was part of a gang which kidnapped brewery boss Freddy Heineken in Amsterdam, Holland in 1983 for a $35 million (£22 million) ransom.

The notorious crime is the subject of upcoming movie The Heineken Kidnapping - but Holleeder wants it injuncted as he's unhappy with the way producers have represented him in the film.

A court in Amsterdam has heard Holleeder wants to block the release to "protect his reputation". The movie is due to hit cinemas later this month (Oct11).
