AMSTERDAM - The court in Leeuwarden is expected to rule on the fate of the Hell's Angels chapter in Harlingen this afternoon. The public prosecution department (OM) demanded in January that the court ban and dissolve this Northcoast chapter.

This court case is part of the justice ministry's attempt to dissolve and ban all chapters of the Hell's Angels in the Netherlands. The OM regards the motorcycle club as a criminal organisation.

The verdict in the Leeuwarden case will be the first in a serious of cases that the justice ministry has brought against the chapters of the Hell's Angels.

Public Prosecutor Gert Oldekamp says that "crime is a way of life" for the Hell's Angels. "Every member of the Harlingen chapter has a criminal record."
