AMSTERDAM – The public prosecution department (OM) is not going to prosecute former Amsterdam Hell's Angel president Willem van Boxtel for his possible involvement in plans to kill crime boss Willem Holleeder.

Van Boxtel was reportedly involved in a plan with a number of others to blow up Holleeder in the Amsterdam Angels clubhouse. Holleeder was a frequent guest at the clubhouse. Amsterdam real estate magnate Willem Endstra, who was himself killed in 2004, was said to have ordered the killing.

Endstra is thought to have been blackmailed by Holleeder for some time.

The case involving Big Willem came to light a few months after Endstra's death. The Hell's Angels ejected Van Boxtel, one of the founders of the Hell's Angels in the Netherlands, from the organisation. Van Boxtel has always denied involvement in the murder plans.

A spokesperson for the OM says there was not enough evidence to prosecute Van Boxtel. The investigation into the involvement of two other Hell's Angels in the planned murder is ongoing.
