Hell’s Angels Biker Blues?

Published tisdag 21 februari 2006 kl 14.57

The Stockholm chapter of the biker gang Hell’s Angels is being investigated for fraud after police found 70 percent of members were certified as depressed by the same doctor and were getting state sickness benefits.

Biker gangs like the Hell’s Angels have a history of violent crime in Scandinavia. But according to police they have also branched out into benefit and tax frauds in recent years.

It is estimated that as much as a fifth of the workforce is on long-term sick leave or early retirement due to sickness in Sweden.

The government has been cracking down on fraud to get more people back to work.
