Contacts between the Hells Angels and Bandidos biker groups on a peace
agreement have broken down, the Hells Angels Spokesman Jørgen Jøncke Nielsen
is reported as telling the BT newspaper.
“Negotiations have broken down,” he is reported as saying. The breakdown comes
following news that a former leading Hells Angels member, Brian Sandberg has
joined the Bandidos.
Jøncke Nielsen says the move is a ‘breach of trust’, despite the fact that
Sandberg pulled out of the Hells Angels with the acceptance label ‘Left’,
claiming he wanted more time to devote to his family.
Sandberg’s move to the Hells Angels rival may have changed both the HA view of
Sandberg and not least of the Bandidos, with whom the Hells Angels were
engaged in a turf war in the 1990s that cost the lives of several people.
Although there have been some minor incidents between the two since the 1990s,
bilateral talks have in general managed to keep the peace.
But according to Jøncke Nielsen talks have now been stopped and the trust
built up between the two has been lost.
News of the breakdown comes a day after Zealand police raided 52 gangland
addresses in connection with police information that a gang war could be
imminent. Apart from raiding properties housing those with connections to
older gangs, officers also searched properties connected to the La Razza
