An indicted witness in the trial of an alleged Hells Angels leader arrested for several criminal offences has testified two of the man’s associates visited his partner last night.



According to the 32-year-old father-of-three, the incident was sinister, subsequently filing charges.

Oslo police detained the accused, a 51-year-old they believe is head of a Hells Angel gang, at the beginning of this month, following coordinated raids on three tattoo shops in Trondheim, Tromsø, and Lillehammer in connection with tax offences.

Investigations by Sør-Trøndelag police reveal the suspected leader is involved with the three businesses in some way, according to Adresseavisen.

The man is already charged with aggravated battery, extortion, making death threats, and drugs offences.

At yesterday’s first day of the trial, defence counsel Morten Furuholmen asked the 32-year-old whether he tended to adapt his statements accordingly, alluding to several matters he had not told police previously following his confession last year.

“I wasn’t asked about those things at the time,” the witness replied.

Mr Furuholmen tells NRK neither he nor his client are aware of last night’s episode.
