Dutch godfather Holleeder gets life for five murders

Willem Holleeder, the Netherlands' most notorious gangster, has been found guilty of ordering a series of murders. Holleeder, now 61, achieved notoriety in the 1980s for the kidnapping of beer tycoon Freddy Heineken. The prosecution case relied on the sensational testimony of his sister, Astrid, who made secret recordings of their conversations. The judges convicted Holleeder and sentenced him to spend the rest of his life in jail.
