The Spanish authorities have accused the Hells Angels of trying to turn the island of Majorca into their business centre for drug smuggling, prostitution and money laundering. 

At the time of the police operation in 2013, the bikers allegedly ran several nightclubs on the Playa de Palma.

Some 200 officers took part in dawn raids on more than 30 properties as part of a two-year investigation, codenamed Operation Casablanca, involving Interpol, Europol and German, Austrian and Dutch authorities.

As well as luxury cars and motorcycles, the raids reportedly netted pistols, a sawn-off shotgun, cash and jewellery as well as drugs, including cocaine and anabolic steroids.

Spanish prosecutors have alleged young women from Eastern Europe were smuggled to Majorca and forced into prostitution.

The case will be brought before the National Court of Justice in Madrid, which is responsible for serious crimes such as organised crime.
