UpdateLawyer Peter Schouten had a tattoo of the life motto of good friend Peter R. de Vries today. He died on July 15, a week after he was shot on the street in Amsterdam.
On the calf of Schouten’s left leg is now the text ‘On-bend knee is no way to be free’, he let us know via Twitter. It is a text that De Vries himself also had on his calf, his right calf. “It means that we are not subordinate to anyone. That no one can rule us. That means we are never, ever, never anyone’s slave,” the crime reporter once said. De Vries had the motto again from his father.
‘I could not help myself. I went to Brian Uitermark in Best for another tattoo, but then I also wanted to have it done,” Schouten writes on Twitter under a photo of the new tattoo.

De Vries died on July 15 at the age of 64, after he was shot on the street in Amsterdam a week earlier after a performance in the studio of RTL Boulevard.
Peter Schouten (64) and Peter R. de Vries got to know each other more than thirty years ago, when Schouten hired De Vries at the magazine Current where Schouten was the publisher. A friendship for life was formed. A year and a half ago, Schouten hired his friend Peter R. again, this time as a confidential adviser to crown witness Nabil B. in the Marengo trial. Crown witness B. is legally assisted in that trial – after the murder of his lawyer Derk Wiersum – by lawyers Schouten and Onno de Jong.
,,I will not be intimidated and that also applies to my colleague Onno de Jong, with whom Peter R. and I formed the team around Nabil B.. Onno and I don’t budge. This isn’t done yet. But we are concerned that other people could also be victims,” said Schouten a day after De Vries’ funeral.
