Rechtszaak No Surrender-leiders pas volgend jaar zomer

De rechtszaak tegen vier leiders van motorclub No Surrender wordt op zijn vroegst pas in juni inhoudelijk behandeld. Dat bleek vanmorgen tijdens een regiezitting bij de rechtbank in Groningen.

De rechters bogen zich vandaag over de zaken van Theo ten V. uit Klazienaveen en Henk Kuipers uit Emmen. Klaas Otto uit Bergen op Zoom en Rico R. uit Hulst, de twee andere leiders, verschijnen komende maandag voor de rechter.

Kuipers ziek
Henk Kuipers was er, in tegenstelling tot de voorgaande zittingen, niet bij. "Hij is ziek", was alles wat zijn advocaat Roy van der Wal erover kwijt wilde. Hij pleitte vanmorgen voor de vijfde keer om zijn cliënt vrij te laten in afwachting van de inhoudelijke behandeling.

Verzet tegen vrijlating
Advocaat Umut Ural vroeg hetzelfde voor zijn cliënt Theo ten V. Het Openbaar Ministerie verzet zich tegen vrijlating. Op maandag 26 november beslist de rechtbank of Theo ten V. en Henk Kuipers op vrije voeten komen.

De Drentse No Surrender-leiders worden onder meer verdacht van afpersing en het leidinggeven aan een criminele organisatie.

Devils Diciples leader sentenced to life for racketeering, drug trafficking

Detroit — The former national president of the Devils Diciples motorcycle club was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday on charges of racketeering and drug trafficking, officials announced.

Jeff Garvin Smith, known as “Fat Dog,” 64, of Mount Clemens was sentenced by Judge Robert H. Cleland in Detroit after a having been convicted of several offenses in a six-month jury trial in 2014-15 and a four-month trial that ended in February 2015 (link is external).

Evidence showed that at Smith’s direction, individuals, including members and associates of the gang, were beaten and robbed, attorney general's office stated.

According to the attorney general's office, in late 1998, Smith shot a Devils Diciples member who failed to abide by the gang’s rules and, in August 2008, he brutally assaulted the girlfriend of another Devils Diciples member because he believed she disrespected him and the gang.
“The life sentence imposed on this defendant is a clear indication of the seriousness of the violence he engaged in and how committed the law enforcement community is to stop this kind of organized violence,” said Special Agent in Charge Timothy R. Slater of the Detroit division of the FBI.
“The FBI, our state and local partners and the U.S. Attorney’s offices across the region will not rest until all who would harm the peace and safety of our residents are brought to justice, regardless of where those threats originate.“

In total, eight members of the Devils Diciples Motorcycle Club were convicted during the two trials, including Smith and Cary Dale Vandiver, known as “Gun Control,” 59, of Sand Mountain, Alabama.

Vandiver, the vice president and national warlord, was sentenced to life imprisonment on Nov. 1.
Methamphetamine cook Patrick Michael McKeoun, known as “Magoo,” 59, of Birmingham, Alabama, was sentenced to 372 months on Nov. 8. Alabama leader, Michael Rich, known as “Tatu,” 62, of Anniston, Alabama was sentenced to 360 months imprisonment on October 26, 2018.

The club members were charged with various criminal acts including racketeering, violent crimes in aid of racketeering, methamphetamine production and trafficking, illegal firearms offenses, obstruction of justice, subornation of perjury and other federal offenses, U.S. States Attorney Matthew Schneider said.
The case has been notable for the size and scope of crimes allegedly committed by more than 50 gang members charged in federal court — some of whom face up to life in prison for convicted of crimes dating to the early 1990s. It also is notable for the contrast between the government's violent portrait of bikers who after 20 years of alleged criminal activity and cooking methamphetamine, appear paunchy, feeble, or, deathly ill.

Schneider said the gang avoided prosecution over the years through witness intimidation and obstruction of justice.
“This brings to a close, in part, the years’ long effort of the federal government to bring down the leadership of a dangerous organized crime biker gang that terrorized innocent victims throughout the United States,"

Schneider said in a statement. "For over three decades, the Devils Diciples spread fear, violence and their poisonous drugs throughout Michigan and the country."

Four who were found guilty by a jury of engaging in a racketeering conspiracy, methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy, conspiracy to obstruct justice, violent crimes in aid of racketeering are awaiting sentencing.

Those individuals include: National Vice President Paul Anthony Darrah, known as “Pauli,” 54, of Macomb Township and Vincent John Witort, known as “Holiday,” 68, of Fontana, California. Victor Castano, 46, of St. Clair Shores and David Randy Drozdowski, 42, of Fair Haven, Michigan, were also found guilty in the second trial in late 2015 of racketeering conspiracy and methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy.

Prosecutors say 50 members and associates of the Devil’s Diciples have pleaded guilty to various crimes as result of the federal investigation. Authorities also seized more than 60 firearms and more than 6,000 rounds of ammunition and the dismantling of eight methamphetamine manufacturing laboratories across the country.

The case was investigated by the FBI, the Michigan State Police, the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office and the County of Macomb Enforcement Team, with assistance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office.

Allegheny Co. DA Withdraws Charges Against Motorcycle Gang Members In Bar Brawl

(video (link is external)) --- PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office has withdrawn charges filed against members of a motorcycle club in the wake of a bar brawl on the South Side last month.

The brawl, which was caught on surveillance video on Oct. 12 at Kopy’s Bar, involved members of the Pagan Motorcycle Gang and undercover officers.
“The video posed problems for law enforcement, as a result of the actions that occurred there. I think that… I was looking forward for an opportunity to start cross-examining the officers,” said defense attorney Lee Rothman.

Following the fight, Rothman’s client, Frank DeLuca, a known member of the Pagan Motorcycle Gang, and three other members were charged with aggravated assault, conspiracy and riot.

But the Allegheny County DA’s Office released a statement Wednesday, saying those charges have been withdrawn based on evidence.

The full statement goes on to say they reserve the option to re-file the charges, and acknowledged the uniformed officers who responded to the incident:
“This afternoon our office withdrew all charges filed against 4 individuals in the wake of an altercation inside of Kopy’s Bar on Oct. 12, 2018. The withdrawal of the charges was based on evidentiary reasons and issues and our office reserves the option of refiling. Our office wishes to acknowledge the actions of the uniformed officers who responded to the altercation, doing so in a calm and professional manor despite being faced with a chaotic situation.”
Last month, defense attorneys said it was the undercover officers who should be charged in the incident. The attorneys say the officers were allegedly drunk, brandished firearms and provoked the entire confrontation.

DeLuca was seen in the video being pinned in place against the bar while an unidentified undercover officer repeatedly punched him in the head.

DeLuca’s attorney said Wednesday that his client never should have been charged.
“Those undercover officers acted in a manner that, I believe, was excessive, and that caused injuries to my client,” said Rothman.

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police issued this statement Wednesday night in response to the charges being withdrawn:
“We respect the District Attorney’s decision to withdraw the charges, with an option to refile later.
“The PBP takes all incidents that involve the use of force seriously, which is why we always conduct full reviews when such force is required. These internal investigations are a part of our protocol.
“We also prioritize transparency, which is why we asked OMI and the FBI to further investigate this matter. If it is determined that internal discipline or administrative actions should be taken, such actions will be taken.
“The public and our officers deserve an impartial examination of the facts. There are three separate independent investigations regarding this incident, and we continue to cooperate with each of them.”
District Attorney Zappala and U.S. Attorney Scott Brady met last month about opening a possible federal probe into the incident.

Fort McMurray drug scam

August 2017 the Edmonton journal reported that "A Fort McMurray man will spend more than five years in prison after an investigation into a drug trafficking network ended with police seizing more than $1 million worth of drugs in 2015. During a Wednesday morning court appearance, Justice Kevin Feehan sentenced Paul Ohelo to serve three years and six months for trafficking cocaine and five years and six months for trafficking fentanyl. The sentence is to be served concurrently, minus a day in custody in lieu of time served."

"According to an agreed statement of facts, which Ohelo accepted, an undercover police officer and civilian agent bought thousands of dollars worth of fentanyl and cocaine from the trafficking ring during five separate occasions in 2015. Ohelo delivered the drugs to the undercover individuals and also collected their payments during the transactions. The same court documents indicate two other individuals — Patrick Felix and Spencer Brown — negotiated quantity, delivery terms and pricing with the undercover duo."

The question is, how did Patrick Felix and Spencer Brown, the ring leaders of the operation get off Scott free? Something smells pretty fishy about this one. “Felix and Mulley are accused of being the central figures in cocaine and fentanyl distribution networks that was based in Fort McMurray, but also had connections to Edmonton, Calgary, and British Columbia.”

Perth man Luke Joshua Cook has been sentenced to death in Thailand on drug smuggling charges

(video (link is external) --- A Perth man and his Thai wife have been sentenced to death after a failed bid to smuggle $300 million worth of crystal meth into Australia.

A Perth man and his Thai wife have been sentenced to death in Thailand on drug smuggling charges.

Father-of-two Luke Joshua Cook, 35, and his wife Kanyarat Wechapitak, 40, were arrested at Bangkok International Airport in December last year following a tip-off from local police, The Daily Telegraph (link is external)reported.

The pair were sentenced to death after they attempted to smuggle half a ton of crystal methamphetamine — valued at $300 million — into the country.

Their sentences are expected to be commuted to life, the paper says.
Assets linked to the pair worth $800,000 will be forfeited, and include cars, cash and property.
Police said that in 2015, Cook took a yacht into international waters off the Thai coast where he collected 500kg of meth from a Chinese trawler.

He dumped the illicit content overboard after he was spotted by a Thai patrol guard, and escaped in the early morning light.

Authorities later found four sacks containing around 50kg of meth washed ashore on Mae Ramphueng Beach in Rayong province.
Officials also said Cook was given $15 million by Hells Angels boss Wayne Schneider to store and ship the drugs to Australia.

At the time of their arrest, Police Lieutenant General Sommai Kongwisaisuk of the Thai Narcotics Suppression Bureau said Cook was a Hells Angels member in Pattaya, a city 150km from Bangkok, according to Fairfax Media (link is external).

Cook was born in Duncraig, a northern suburb of Perth, and lived in New Zealand and Papua New Guinea as a child before returning to Western Australia as a teenager.

Cook moved to Pattaya and bought a bar in the beach resort town, which he named the Piss Stop Bar, and subsequently joined the Hells Angels.

Officials also said Cook was given $15 million by gang boss Wayne Schneider to store and ship the drugs to Australia.

Schneider demanded his money back after the operation failed, but he was then brutally murdered by gang members, with his naked body later found in a shallow Pattaya grave.

Cook was later convicted over his involvement in the murder, after trying to help former Sydney gangster Antonio Bagnato, 28, escape to Cambodia.

Bagnato was found guilty and sentenced to death by a Thai court for his role in the 2015 abduction and murder of Hells Angels gang member Wayne Schneider (pictured).

Bagnato was found guilty and sentenced to death over the murder but the sentence was commuted to life in prison.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance to an Australian in Thailand. has contacted the Australian Federal Police for comment.
The arrest is part of a wider operation in Thailand seeking to crack down on Australian-led bikie gangs in Thailand.

Several Australians have been arrested and deported in a series of raids conducted by Thai police, on criminal charges including drugs, extortion, weapons, and human trafficking.

The crackdown has a particular focus on tourist resort cities like Pattaya, Phuket and Chiang Mai, as well as the capital, Bangkok.

Raids are also being conducted in other South-East Asian countries including Indonesia, Cambodia and Singapore.

Polizei stellt 1 Tonne Koks sicher

hells angels hamburg
Dieser Schlag gegen die Organisierte Kriminalität hat gesessen: Gratulation, Polizei Hamburg zu diesem beeindruckenden Erfolg!“

Innensenator Andy Grote (50, SPD) auf Twitter.

Am Freitag wurde klar, was für dicke Fische den Rauschgift-Fahndern ins Netz gegangen sind: Sie beschlagnahmten mehr als eine Tonne Kokain aus Brasilien im Wert von bis zu 200 Millionen Euro, ein Kilo Marihuana und 170 000 Euro in bar!

Der Schnee-Fall der Hamburger Polizei
Donnerstagnachmittag. Fahnder beobachten am Billhorner Röhrendamm im Hamburger Stadtteil Rothenburgsort nahe der Elbbrücken drei Deutsche (40, 40, 49), einen Italiener (28) und einen Polen (43) beim Entladen eines Containers. Als gut 1000 Pakete mit jeweils einem Kilo Kokain raus sind, schlagen schwer bewaffnete SEK-Beamte zu.

Wer ist die Drogen-Bande?
Im Mittelpunkt steht nach Ermittlungen der Polizei Martin P. (39) aus der Hafen-City, ein führendes Mitglied der Hells Angels Hamburg Harbor City. Er wurde am Donnerstag ebenso festgenommen wie seine mutmaßlichen Komplizen aus Rothenburgsort, hinzu kamen ein Pole (45) und ein Deutscher (25).

Gegen P. hatte die Polizei bereits im Februar ermittelt. Doch damals floppte eine Razzia. Es wurden nur 20 Gramm Marihuana sichergestellt. Die Ermittler blieben jedoch dran. Nun der Riesen-Erfolg!

Wie läuft der Drogenschmuggel?
Zoll-Sprecher Stephan Meyns: „Wir verzeichnen in den vergangenen Jahren einen deutlichen Anstieg der Kokain-Sicherstellungen in Norddeutschland. Das meiste kommt aus Süd- und Mittelamerika, die großen Mengen werden hauptsächlich im Seeverkehr nach Europa transportiert.“

Erst Anfang dieses Monats hatten Zöllner rund 200 Kilo Koks im Hafen sichergestellt, es war zwischen Kaffee versteckt. Der Hafen ist seit Jahren die Drehscheibe der Drogen-Mafia! Steckt sie auch hinter den jüngsten Schießereien in Hamburg?

Fakt ist: Um den lukrativen Drogenhandel tobt seit Monaten ein blutiger Krieg. Jüngste Höhepunkte:
Beim Einkaufszentrum Wandsbek Quarree wurde am 10. Oktober ein Albaner (39) niedergeschossen, drei Männer flüchteten. Polizeisprecherin Heike Uhde: „Nach den ersten Erkenntnissen könnten Streitigkeiten im Zusammenhang mit Betäubungsmitteln Hintergrund der Tat sein.“

Am 2. November fiel dann auf der Wandsbeker Chaussee ein Aserbaidschaner (42) mit einem Bauchschuss aus einem Jeep. Das Opfer und seine beiden Begleiter äußern sich nicht zu den Hintergründen.

Denn Schweigen gilt im Rockermilieu als eiserne Regel.
