We're No Hell's Angels

We're cut from entirely different leather in Holland:

AMSTERDAM — The Hells Angels from the Northcoast chapter denied in Leeuwarden Court on Tuesday they formed a criminal organisation.

"They don't approve of criminal behaviour, they emphatically reject it," the Hells Angels defence lawyer said, adding that the chapter could not be banned or disbanded.

The wholesale attempt by the public prosecution office (OM) to have the motorcycle club Hells Angels banned in the Netherlands started in the Leeuwarden Court on Tuesday. The prosecution claims the club does not belong in society because its members are regularly involved in criminal activities.

According to the prosecution, the court case to have the Hells Angels banned is a unique. No other case has been put to court across the globe.
