Norwegian Hells Angels May Sue Icelandic Government

Norwegian members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle club who have a clean criminal record and were refused entry in Iceland last weekend have hired an Icelandic lawyer and are looking into a lawsuit against the Icelandic government.

Their lawyer, Oddgeir Einarsson from law firm Opus, says it is unthinkable that the men posed a threat to national security and claims that their rights were violated, 24 stundir reports.

There are seven different branches of the Hells Angels motorcycle club in Norway and they have very different reputations. The Icelandic police appear to consider all clubs related to the Hells Angels criminal organizations.

Einarsson said the Hells Angels do not have an illegal purpose, the club is not banned and it has never been convicted of a crime as a whole though individuals within the club may have criminal records.
