The Ministry of Defense has suspended a soldier for the first time because of his role in the world of motorcycle clubs. This is Sergeant Major Maurice Vissers. His declaration of no objection has been withdrawn, confirms his lawyer, Michael Ruperti.

A known leader of the notorious motorcycle club was detained in Helsinki on suspicion of dealing in "very dangerous" drugs.

The Helsinki District Court reached a decision in a closed trial on Saturday, 20 July to remand a suspect who is believed to be a leading figure of Finland's Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. He was detained on suspicion of a string of aggravated drug offenses that dated back to the start of 2018 and continued until the present.

The leader of the criminal investigation characterized the case as unprecedented in its scope.

"There are elements of the case that make it quite exceptional, to say the least. Perhaps even in terms of all of Finnish criminal history," said chief inspector Kaarle Lehmus.

"We are talking about a drug that has been classified as very dangerous. For investigative reasons, I can't say anything about the quality or quantity or provide any more details," he said.

Dutch court tackles another biker gang; No Surrender banned

On Friday the court in Assen banned No Surrender in the Netherlands, ruling that the motorcycle club poses a danger to public order. No Surrender is the fourth outlaw motorcycle gang to be banned in the Netherlands, after Hells Angels, Satudarah and Bandidos.

"A large number of members of No Surrender are or have been structurally involved in numerous serious crimes", the court said in its verdict, NOS reports. The ruling also mentions intimidation, public violence, extortion, unauthorized possession of weapons, drug trafficking, and arms trafficking. 

The judge considered it proven that the club management has an "important steering role in committing and facilitating criminal offenses". The ban  applies to all No Surrender chapters and brotherhoods, because they are not independent due to the strongly hierarchical structure of the motorcycle club.

The Central Netherlands court in Utrecht issued a ban of the outlaw motorcycle gang Hells Angels in the Netherlands. That makes the Netherlands the first country in the world to completely ban the Hells Angels, according to broadcaster NOS. Other countries, including Germany, banned local chapters, but not the entire club. 

The motorcycle gang must cease all its activities in the country. The court agreed with the Public Prosecutor's argument that there is a culture of violence within the club and that it endangers society and the rule of law. "The worldwide Hells Angels organisation has also been banned from undertaking activities in the Netherlands," the court said in a statement.

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.
