Custody Extended Over Hells Angels Leader in Iceland

Reykjavík District Court agreed yesterday to the police’s request that the custody over Einar Marteinsson, the leader of the Hells Angels motorcycle club in Iceland, and three others suspected of having had part in the brutal assault of a woman in Kópavogur in late December 2011 be extended until February 16.

Two persons were arrested after the assault but the woman was then attacked again, leading to further arrests, Fréttablaðið reports.

Five individuals have been placed in custody this past week, four men and one woman, but one suspect was released yesterday.

Einar is suspected of having ordered the assault due to a personal feud.

In another case, the custody over three members of the motorcycle club Outlaws who are suspected of having had part in a shooting in the Reykjavík district Bryggjuhverfið in November has also been extended.
