Portugal charges 89 Hells Angels after Lisbon attack
DW is reporting that "Members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club were indicted for attempting to kill four people and injuring others with knives, axes and batons at a restaurant in Lisbon. The gang was banned by the Netherlands in May."
"Prosecutors allege that the gang's members tried to kill four people and seriously injured others last year at a restaurant on the outskirts of Portugal's capital, Lisbon. The restaurant was destroyed in the Hells Angels attack. At the time of the restaurant attack, the Hell Angels was involved in a gang war for control of illicit guns and drug trade, according to authorities."
Hells Angels from Germany were arrested in Mallorca on a small island off the coast of Spain back in 2013. They were charged with drug trafficking, trafficking in humans, extortion and running prostitution rings. February of this year the Majorca Daily Bulletin reported that the case is coming to trial and that "The centre of the gang's operations was Playa de Palma, where brothels were used to finance its network."
"The Hells Angels case was one element that led to the investigation into police corruption in Palma and ultimately to the Cursach case." In 2018 the Majorca Daily Bulletin reported that one of the two officers arrested was the contact for the madame, the arranger of alleged prostitute parties for police, politicians and public service employees."
Are you sure this wasn't the BC Gang Task force frequenting the Garden of Eden in Kelowna?
In Portugal and Spain they arrest Hells Angels for Prostitution. In BC they do not.
