Setback for public prosecutor: Bandidos chapters remain legal

The national chapter of a motorcycle club was correctly banned by a lower court two years ago, but the local branches of the club can remain, appeal court judges said on Tuesday.

Bandidos Motorcycle Club (BMC) Europa and the Dutch organisation Bandidos Motorcycle Club Holland had gone to court to appeal against a Utrecht court decision to ban their organisations two years ago.

In that ruling, judges banned the motorcycle club with immediate effect in order to ‘halt behaviour which could disrupt society’.

The appeal court judges upheld the ban on the national organisation but said the ruling ‘does not apply to other, independent Bandidos chapters in the Netherlands because the public prosecution request was not directed at this.’

The group’s lawyer Marnix van der Werf said on Tuesday that the appeal court ruling was a victory for the group.

Dutch court upholds ban on branch of Bandidos biker club

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — An appeals court has upheld a ban on a Dutch arm of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, agreeing with a lower court's conclusion that the biker gang forms a threat to public order.

In a written ruling issued Tuesday, the appeals court in Arnhem said that members of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club Holland operate in "an atmosphere and culture of violence and threat of violence."

But in a blow to Dutch prosecutors' campaign against biker gangs, the appeals court says it is not banning other Dutch branches of the U.S.-based gang or overseas branches.

Prosecutors say the gang has dozens of members in the Netherlands. It wasn't immediately clear how many belong to the Bandidos Motorcycle Club Holland and how many to other Dutch branches of the gang.

New Langley biker club has links to Hells Angels: police

The Street Reapers were formed late last year and have been seen in Fort Langley.

A new motorcycle gang police say is affiliated with the Hells Angels has established itself around Fort Langley.

Members of the Street Reapers motorcycle club were reportedly spotted at the funeral of slain Hells Angel Chad Wilson in Maple Ridge on Saturday.

“The Street Reapers are actually a motorcycle club that are closely associated and have close ties to the Hardside chapter of the Hells Angels,” said Sgt. Brenda Winpenny, spokesperson for the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU), an anti-gang policing unit.

The Hardside Hells Angels chapter is based near Langley as well, in the Port Kells area of Surrey.

The Street Reapers appear to have come into existence in late 2017, a little more than a year ago, said Winpenny.

“We have noticed them at several of the Hells Angel ride events over the summer of 2018,” she said.

Dutch police call parliament to quickly ban outlaw motorcycle gangs

The police want parliament to speed up a legislative proposal that will allow the Justice Minister to immediately ban outlaw motorcycle gangs, especially now that new clubs are emerging in the Netherlands, said police chief Pim Miltenburg, in charge of the motorcycle gang file at the police, NOS reports.

This involves split-offs from existing outlaw motorcycle gangs or emerging clubs that do others' dirty work for them, according to the government. For example, was often in the news this year with connections to assassinations and an attack on the Panorama building in Amsterdam. Members of Kings Syndicate, a division of motorcycle gang No Surrender, are also being linked with serious crimes, according to the broadcaster. "As a police man I say: hurry up, because the street requires direct action", Miltenburg said.

Hells Angels purchases vacant Centereach church

The group will use the Lynbrook Street site as its Suffolk County chapter headquarters, Brookhaven Town officials said.

Brookhaven Town officials say the Hells Angels have purchased a former Centereach church and plan to use it as the club’s new headquarters.

The club's Suffolk County chapter, which held a children's toy drive at the Lynbrook Street site earlier this month, plans to modify the structure's interior and obtain town permits before moving in, officials said. Town officials said club leaders have been cooperative and plan to be "good neighbors." 

Brookhaven officials said some neighboring residents have expressed concern about the club's purchase of the property, but they said the town cannot prevent the group from using the site as long as members abide by local codes.
