Hells Angels cannot be banned

The Hells Angels in Harlingen are not a criminal organisation and therefore cannot be banned, an appeal court in Leeuwarden ruled on Wednesday.

The public prosecution department has been trying for some time to get the Hells Angels banned in the Netherlands.
Earlier cases brought against them in courts in Leeuwarden, Amsterdam and Maastricht concluded that there was insufficient evidence to label the motorcycle club a criminal organisation.
