Dutch fruit trader murdered in Mexico

Dutch fresh produce trader Andres Reijgersberg has been murdered in Mexico. The family has confirmed this. Reijgersberg was a share holder of the company AC Reijgersberg in Poeldijk, the Netherlands, and started the Mexican adventure in November 2010, when he dedicated himself to the export of Mexican vegetables to the US and fruit to Europe. In recent years, he was mostly active in limes, mangoes and bananas. He also performed as a DJ.

“A few months ago, he was in the Netherlands, and told me trade was starting to pick up,” his uncle Dolf Reijgersberg says. He remembers his nephew as a “cheerful, sociable boy who enjoyed adventures.”

The shooting took place around 6:30 PM Mexican time, in a Brazilian restaurant on the Avenue Americas in Zapopan, South West of Mexico. The Dutchman was having dinner when four armed men stormed the restaurant and opened fire. He was shot in the face and died on the spot. Another man was seriously wounded in the attack. The police are investigating. The perpetrators are on the run, and have disappeared without a trace, according to Mexican news websites. 

Andres Reijgersberg was 44 years old.
