AMSTERDAM - The Amsterdam Hell's Angels may have been behind the attack on the high-security courthouse in Amsterdam-Osdorp at the beginning of this month, Elsevier reports.

The grenades used on the building just before the Holleeder trial was set to begin are of the same type as those found in the clubhouse of the controversial motorcycle club.

A "source close to the investigation" cited in Elsevier says that the explosives are Serbian made, like the ones found at the Hell's Angels clubhouse.

Willem Holleeder is reportedly on very good terms with the Hell's Angels. Until his arrest he was a frequent guest at the home of former club vice-president Harry Stoeltie.

The public prosecution department is trying to have the organisation banned claiming its criminal activities are a danger to public order. The courts in Leeuwarden and Amsterdam have not banned the club so far. The court in Maastricht will rule on the case at the end of May.
