A highly-placed member of biker gang Bandidos has been convicted of a triple murder in Copenhagen in 2015.

A second gang member has been convicted of accessory to murder, while a third was found guilty of possessing firearms, reports Politiken.

Police have described the murders, which were carried out while the victims slept, as “liquidations”, reports the newspaper.

According to police, the men's killers climbed a scaffolding to get into an apartment in the Frederiksberg neigbourhood, where they shot the victims as they slept.

The 34-year-old convicted man, whose role within the Bandidos hierarchy is given the name “minister for war” (krigsminister), did not answer any questions considered to be key to the case, including regarding possession of a revolver, reports Politiken.

This is considered to be a key factor of his conviction by the jury at Frederiksberg court.

The footprint of a Fred Perry shoe was also one of the decisive pieces of evidence.

A 27-year-old man who is the brother-in-law of the convicted man was acquitted of murder but found guilty of being in possession of a revolver used in the crime.

The 34-year-old is reported to have laughed with his defence lawyer in court shortly before the verdict was read.

The third convicted man, aged 25, was found guilty of being an accomplice to the crime but acquitted of being one of the three people that climbed a scaffolding before gaining access to the Frederiksberg apartment on November 11th 2015 to carry out the killings.

Mike Vinther, Philip Rasmussen and Suhaib Jaffar were shot to death by a revolver and shotgun in the early hours of the morning.

Nine people were initially arrested in April 2016 following investigation of the murders.
