Satudarah threatened to commit a "slaughter" in Geleen

The Satudarah chapter in Geleen threatened to commit a slaughter in the city if the police raided the outlaw motorcycle gang's clubhouse. Messages intercepted by the police show that the motorcycle gang threatened to throw hand grenades into a bar with a hundred or more people inside, was revealed during the first hearing against seven members of Satudarah Geleen on Monday, NU.nl reports.

Ten Satudarah members were arrested in Geleen last year. The trial against seven of them started on Monday. The other three will be tried in January. They are suspected of, among other things, membership to a criminal organization, extortion, deprivation of freedom, weapons possession, money laundering and various drug crimes.

Could a notorious biker club's survival hinge on a trademark? The feds are betting on it

When federal prosecutors finally managed to put mobster Al Capone behind bars, it wasn’t for murder or bootlegging, but tax evasion.

Fast forward several decades and government lawyers in Southern California say a similarly novel tactic could be the key to taking down the Mongols, a notorious motorcycle club that has long been targeted by authorities for killings and drug trafficking.

Instead of tax returns, the court battle this time will be won or lost in the decidedly unexciting trenches of trademark and forfeiture law.

Police task force raids Hells Angels headquarters in Trois-Rivières

More than 60 police officers working as part of a united police task force were involved.

More than 60 police officers working as part of a united police task force raided the headquarters of the Trois-Rivières chapter of the Hells Angels on Friday night.

The operation took place in St-Cuthbert in the Lanaudière region. Officers from the Sûreté du Québec, RCMP, Montreal police and regional police were involved.

The raids were conducted as part of a continuing investigation, so no details regarding possible seizures are being released at this point, said Sgt. Claude Denis of the SQ. No arrests were made.

The task force, Escouade nationale de répression du crime organisé, was created last year to combat the Hells Angels biker gang and other organized crime groups.

Mongols’ Defense: A Club Can’t Conspire With Itself

SANTA ANA, Calif. (CN) — A defense attorney for the Mongol Nation motorcycle club told a California jury Tuesday that federal prosecutors had not presented any evidence that the club ever violated racketeering laws or engaged in a conspiracy — indeed, he said, it could not be convicted of conspiracy because an entity cannot conspire with itself.

“There’s no evidence that the Mongol Nation conspired to do anything,” Joseph A. Yanny told the Orange County jury in his closing arguments.

“There are individual members” who have committed crimes, he acknowledged, but “there’s no evidence at all that the club joined in those activities.”

He said the club itself cannot be held liable for “isolated incidents committed by boneheads.”

Pagans guitar maker Freddy Augello sentenced to life plus 30 years in April Kauffman murder at Shore

MAYS LANDING, N.J. — Freddy Augello finally got his chance to speak his mind in court on Wednesday, and the Jersey Shore Pagans motorcycle club leader, guitar maker, and convicted murderer blamed the 2012 killing of April Kauffman on two other men: one who testified against him and another who died of an overdose years ago.

“I’m not John Gotti," he told Superior Court Judge Bernard DeLury.

DeLury was undeterred. After listening to Augello for more than 20 minutes — a speech the prosecutor later called “the ramblings of a man who’s going to spend the next 55 years in jail” — he sentenced Augello, 62, to life in prison for being the leader of a drug ring, and 30 years for murder.

Augello would not be eligible for parole unless he lived to age 117. He plans an appeal of the verdict.

Trial Wraps Up in U.S. Attempt to Yank Motorcycle Club Trademark

A federal prosecutor Monday told jurors who were “witnesses to a lengthy parade of cruelty” for the past five weeks in a trial against a Los Angeles-based motorcycle club that they should vote to yank Mongol Nation’s trademark while the organization’s attorney argued it has been targeted because its membership is primarily Mexican-American.

“Over the past five weeks you’ve been witness to a lengthy parade of cruelty,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Welk said of the evidence presented of the club’s criminal history since its founding in 1969.

For the first time, federal prosecutors are trying to get a motorcycle club found guilty of racketeering and conspiracy to commit racketeering in order to have its trademark taken away. It would mean the club’s motorcyclists could no longer wear the patches they wear on their “cuts,” slang for leather jackets.
