Hells Angels quizzed over Belgium triple murder: report

Published on 24/05/2011

Belgian police have questioned Hells Angels bikers in their probe of the murder of three men close to a rival gang, a Belgian newspaper reported Tuesday.

Fabrizio Muto, the chief of the Hells Angels chapter in the northeastern town of Zwartberg, near the Dutch border, was among several people questioned in the case, said the Flemish newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws.

Muto is the financier behind a tyre business that was inaugurated on Friday night with a party attended by the three victims, the newspaper said.

Riddled with bullets, their bodies were found at the weekend inside a van dumped in a canal, it said. The victims are members and fans of the Outlaws, a rival biker gang with a base in Maasmechelen, on the Belgian-Dutch border.

Investigators believe the tyre business may serve as a front for drug trafficking, the daily said.
