No compensation for Hells Angels

Members of the motor cycle gang Hells Angels have lost their claim for a total €2.2m in damages after several court cases to have the organisation banned failed.

In total, 24 Hells Angels had gone to court asking for compensation. But judges said the public prosecution department had been right to investigate the group for criminal activities and turned down their claim.
The biggest claims were made by Willem van Boxtel, former head of the Amsterdam chapter and Harrie Stoeltie. They had claimed €1.8m between them.
