Dutch ban homegrown bikers' gang

Dutch judges on Monday banned a national motorcycle club and seized all its assets, ruling gang members had spread a culture of violence and criminal activities in the Netherlands.

"The court in The Hague has decided today that the motorcycle club Satudarah is banned with immediate effect," the judges said in their ruling.

The ban includes not just Satudarah, but also its fan club, and affiliate Supportcrew 999.

The judges found "the combination of numerous offences along with its culture of violence means Satudarah's activities are contrary to public order".

Its members "have been involved for many years in criminal activities including violence against other motorcycle clubs, manufacturing and trafficking in narcotics, the illegal possession of weapons and extortion".

The judges also ordered that the club should lose all its assets including access to its clubhouse.

Dutch prosecutors ask judge to outlaw Hells Angels

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch prosecutors have asked a judge to ban the Hells Angels motorcycle gang in the Netherlands, arguing that its members are part of "a subculture of lawlessness."

The appeal is not the first time Dutch authorities have gone after the gang. An earlier attempt to outlaw a local branch of the Hells Angels was rejected by Dutch courts, including by the country's Supreme Court in 2009.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that they handed to a court in the central Netherlands a dossier including hundreds of pages outlining the Hells Angels' activities. They said in a statement that the gang's members are involved in crimes such as extortion and intimidation.

Dutch prosecutors have in recent years gone after other motorcycle gangs, saying that they form a threat to civil order.
