North Cemetery in Bonn : Hundreds of Hells Angels expected at funeral

Hundreds of bikers are expected at the northern cemetery of Bonn this Friday. A 58-year-old from the region who was close to the Hells Angels will be buried there. Motorists are advised to avoid the immediate area.

Bonn police are on standby: On Friday afternoon hundreds of bikers are expected to come to the Nordfriedhof (North Cemetery) in Bonn. According to GA information, a 58-year-old man from the region, who had a close relationship to the Hells Angels, will be buried there. The funeral was co-organized by Frank Hanebuth, who was once considered the most powerful Hells Angel in Europe.

"According to current information, the mourners are expected to arrive in groups with motorcycles and cars beginning at 1:30 p.m., according to a police spokesman. The funeral was scheduled for 3 pm. A majority of the vehicles will be parked in the area of Hans-Herter-Straße, In den Dauen and the adjacent streets. The departure of mourners will also mean traffic restrictions for the area. "The police will be on site. Motorists are advised to avoid the immediate area.”

The police would not comment on whether Frank Hanebuth would attend the funeral service. The biker boss of the now dissolved Hells-Angel-Chapter in Hanover is facing a long prison sentence in Spain. According to Spanish judicial authorities, the 54-year-old and 45 co-defendants are accused of drug trafficking, pimping, founding a criminal organization, kidnapping, extortion, human trafficking, and money laundering.

According to the investigators, the group was active as a criminal organization in Mallorca from 2009 to 2013. The public prosecutor's office demanded 13 years imprisonment for Hanebuth in court in February. But Hanebuth has been active again in Hanover's red light district: In June of 2018 he opened a new bar there.
