Germany bans MC back patches

Germany bans MC back patches
Three MC clubs can no longer show their affiliation publicly in Germany, while one club has been completely banned.

The German government has now at federal level prohibited the three clubs Hells Angels, Bandidos and Gremiums to wear back patches, writes the German motorcycle magazine Biker News. It is about 'tightening of the law of associations', where the proposal has been underway since September last year.

And according to Biker News, the Act was passed by the Bundestag on January 19.

Previously, several charters of these clubs have been made illegal at state level. Only the club Satudarah has been outlawed at federal level after a former president of the club chose to put the cards on the table and in detail told the authorities about the club members' comings and goings in the criminal environment, which was so shocking that the club was banned in Germany.

In relation to the new law, the Bundestag reacted a verdict from 2015, in connection with a biker-related lawsuit.

There it said that a back patch was not illegal as long as it was carried along with the geographical indication of the charter.

This verdict the authorities believed had acted as a loophole, which in the new law now has been closed.

The parties SPD and CDU, which is behind the law, believe it is an important step in the fight against organized crime.

The opposition on the other hand, with the party Die Linke, believes that is pure symbolic politics.

'The patch will guaranteed change none of the offenses committed by people linked to the biker clubs', says Die Linke to the news agency AFP.

In connection with the new law, Biker News interviewed members of the three mentioned MC clubs - and a Bandidos member says that members of his club, despite the legislation, will probably find another way to show the affiliation.
