A Danish biker from the Hell’s Angels gang has been advised that he will not be welcomed by the La Santa Holiday Club on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.
The decision came after the resort learned that the gang member had been involved in several high-profile incidents in the increasingly tense Danish capital, Copenhagen, which has been affected by a recent upsurge in gang warfare.
Brian Sandberg had booked and paid for his Spanish holiday with his girlfriend but he was advised against visiting La Santa Holiday club by local sales director Michael Rygaard after the group recognised his name from several media reports of violence in Denmark, according to Politiken.
”We investigated whether it was this Brian Sandberg, and when it turned out to be the case we sent a letter through his female partner, who had ordered the trip, that we were annulling his trip, but that she was still welcome,” Rygaard told the media. Sandberg’s partner said she accepted the company’s decision; but Sandberg was far from impressed.
”No, he wasn’t happy. He did not feel it was reasonable that he was unwelcome. But I had to explain to him that he is a living target – something that can make our guests insecure and subject them to potential risk. He was naturally unhappy as he was the injured party here and he has previously been a quiet and friendly guest down here,” claimed Rygaard.
Sandberg was the target of a shooting incident at a Copenhagen sushi restaurant and another restaurant nearby has claimed it will not serve the notorious biker. He was also the intended target of an additional shooting incident at an inner-city bar called Joe & the Juice in January. Sandberg has also been asked to keep away from the Well-come fitness group’s locations, out of respect for other customers.
Duh, if a rebel from society wants to be treated as a regular member of society, it isn’t hard to see what he needs to do. You can’t have it both ways.
I sympathise with Mr Sandberg, however history tells us that during the 1990’s Hells Angels & Bandidos war in Denmark that members of the public started to be injured in the crossfire. That really is unacceptable in any location anywhere, however were it to happen in a holiday resort it would appear all the more odious. Imagine a child being injured whilst playing on holiday ….. The reality is Mr Sandbergs enemies will follow him anywhere to get a hit. as long as he remains a Hells Angel he must live with the consequences of his membership which in this case are really quite well founded in the interests of public safety.
The guy is a Hells Angels… To be a real member of that gang, you need to have murdered someone. He’s a killer! It’s about time someone stands up to that criminal gang. Think about it!
The only place where hells angels are welcome is hell,
i wish more people had the b*lls to stand up to organized crime, hells angels, bankers etc.
this is ridiculous so the brother who was a victim should stay in doors and live in a locked room
if you use this same logic as the resort he wont be able to go anywhere i wonder if they apply the same logic to high profile politician or celebtities etc who have had attempts on there lives
Perhaps he’ll check out if a resort has any Nordic related employees before booking next time. ;)
