‘Blue suits’: ex of top criminal says he has been detained by the judiciary for statement (#2)

An ex-girlfriend of former motorcycle club president Klaas Otto (54) says the Public Prosecution Service has been detained against her will by the judiciary and police in secret places for two years. At that time, the detectives tried – in vain – to get her to make incriminating claims about Otto. This woman (whose name is known to the editors) has made a number of statements that Crimesite has seen and listened to. Her car, ID card, money, debit cards and iPad were taken away. She was not given a lawyer or confidant. And she had to take another name, according to the woman. This is the second part of her account (see also part 1).

By means of @Wim van de Pol

It was in ‘Soest’ (or Soesterberg) or in Friesland that Monica first had a conversation with people from the Public Prosecution Service, she says she cannot indicate the date. It may have been in the fall of 2013.

Monica: ‘At one point all men in blue suits were sitting at an oval table. I found the conversation exciting. The impression that there are ten people at a table who want something from me. I hardly remember anything about that conversation. All I know is that I felt very intimidated and that I was sitting there alone with my child. (…) I had been alone inside for so long and hadn’t spoken to anyone. I got Spanish stuffy that I had to go there. (…) That’s where I first saw Karel Pietersen (name fictitious), he is a man from the Public Prosecution Service of the Northern Netherlands, I think he is in charge of guarding and protecting.’

Monica says she remembers the conversation at the table that she was told there that she would live in Friesland for the time being. There was a good place for her in an institution. That was “the best” for her. There was a waiting list and she had to wait a few more weeks, she says.

Cut hair

Preparations had to be made before that happened. For her own safety. Monica: ‘It was never the case that they called and said: we will come in an hour. They would be at the door and then want to leave within five minutes and then I had to get me and my son ready. I was controlled like a puppet puppet.’

Before she went to Friesland she went to a hairdresser. Monica: ‘I had long blond hair down to my ass. They cut that off, they had to. And they painted it brown. I looked just like Anne Frank. (…) They said: it is for your safety and for your child. I was crying all day afterwards. It seemed like I had lost myself. (…) You have to do things you don’t want to. On the way to Friesland I had to wear a headscarf in the car.’

At the time of her departure to Friesland – many months after she had reported to the shelter of my body in Breda – there was still no clarity for Monica about exactly why she would be unsafe and what would happen to her.

Monica: ‘Actually they threaten you, you have nowhere to go. Then you start thinking, give me a headscarf like that. (…) If I didn’t want something it was: you now have the choice to cooperate and if you don’t cooperate you endanger the safety of your son so we call Child Protection and we pick him up in five minutes away from you.’


In Friesland there was a little more freedom of movement. She was allowed to walk into the garden at the back of the “mother-child house”. There were more young women in the accommodation, which belonged to Safe Home.

One of the first assignments Monica received in Friesland was to undress until she only had her underwear on. A female police officer then took pictures of her. There were several prominent tattoos on her body. Monica says it was clear the police were after those tattoos.

There was one with the name of her son and one with a different name. Monica: ‘They were on my back and in my groin. And on my shoulder I had a tiger print and actually everything had to go. That had to be done very quickly. I said why would I remove my son’s name? She said: you want a new future, you want to leave your past behind. This is your chance. You can laser it away at our expense, but it really has to be done, otherwise you’re still in danger and you can’t wear a t-shirt. I didn’t support it but I had to. (…) I really had no choice. It was either that or child protection.’


A one-year process followed.

Monica: ‘Every three weeks we went to the hospital in Drachten in three cars as a package, and entered through the back entrance. Then two tattoos were lasered off and then I had two weeks to recover. Because you get blood poisoning every time because those ink particles end up in your bloodstream. So you get sick and you get a fever until those particles are gone from your blood again. Then it was sick for two weeks and the third week it went better and then the next appointment came again. That took a year.’


Monica had had complications after giving birth to her son. She had been suffering from bleeding for a long time and that is why she wanted a consultation with a GP. That was not possible at first, she says, and much later that was only possible with police escort. Her son also received injections at the consultation office in the company of agents.

Monica: ‘I had bleeding since my pregnancy. I had three weeks of bleeding and one week of no. It was only after a year that I was finally able to see a doctor for this. I had to tell Karel Pietersen why I wanted to see a doctor. I said it’s women’s stuff that’s private, I find that inconvenient. (…) And then I was allowed to go to the doctor with a letter from the Public Prosecution Service that I was not allowed to release my data for security reasons. A police officer entered the doctor’s office. I thought: this is private, I don’t want this.’

Other first name

Under pressure from her supervisors from the police and judiciary, Monica is said to have changed her own name and that of her son. Her son also had to be given a different first name, something she did not want. But that may not have been the worst.

Monica: ‘My son really got something out of it because we spent two years indoors. His stimulus processing has not gone well. Outside you hear people talking or you see ducks. We were always in one room. No sun, no wind, no grass, you hear and you don’t feel it. You have to develop senses and he missed that. We found that out later.’


After the conversation at the oval table with the men in suits, Monica in Friesland maintained regular contact with Karel Pietersen of the Public Prosecution Service. Monica says they went for walks together and he confided in her that he has two daughters who are her age.

Monica: ‘I can still remember the first conversation very well because he asked what are your goals in your life, what would you like, what kind of education or study would you like to do? (…) And that he wanted to be a kind of father figure to me.’

She says that from that moment on, Pietersen first gave some further information about the deadly threat that apparently existed against her. That was after about a year in isolation. Then police interrogations also started, she says.

(end part 2)

Lawyers Louis de Leon and Sanne Schuurman want to have the woman heard before the court in Den Bosch as a witness. They have argued for years that the judiciary and police have gone beyond their control in various ways in the investigation of Klaas Otto. Justice in Breda has been conducting a continuous criminal investigation into Klaas Otto since about 2010. In 2013 it was announced that Otto became president of the new motorcycle club No Surrender. He was frequently in the publicity about this, including together with Willem Holleeder. At the court in Den Bosch, the appeal is currently pending in two criminal cases of Klaas Otto (55) after he was convicted by the court in Breda for money laundering, threats, aggravated assault and extortion, and in a later case for influencing witnesses. In the spring of 2020, the court decided that Otto could be released under certain conditions. He was acquitted of ordering aggravated assault in yet another case. In 2022, the Leeuwarden Court of Appeal sentenced Otto to three years in prison for his role in the banned No Surrender MC.
