The motorcycle club "No Surrender" got their governments approval to leave Holland to travel to northern Iraq and fight in the war, on the Kurdish side, against the terrorist organization the Islamic State (ISIS).
When it became known that the No Surrender MC from Amsterdam wanted to go to Iraq and fight on the Kurdish side in the war against the Islamic state, there was a debate about whether this was legal or not in Holland. But the government and prosecutors gave them the green light.
Only illegal to travel if you plan to join a terrorist organization
It is only illegal to travel to join a terror organization. Fighting for Isis or any other terrorist organization is not legal under Dutch law. Fighting with the Kurdish army is not a crime in itself.
However, the biker gang will be prosecuted when they return home if the authorities believe they have evidence that they committed war crimes during the fighting.
