The judgment, to be carried out by a collective of the Judicial Court of the District of Lisbon North, had to be scheduled for a parish council of the municipality of Loures due to the high number of defendants (more than 80) and lawyers, but given the information that "the works did not start on the date initially scheduled, are not yet completed and will only be completed next Friday", judge Sara Pina Cabral, president of the collective, decided that "the trial cannot start", as expected, on 13 September, "because, once the works are completed in the room, it is necessary to test the equipment and put the computer system into operation, which will be carried out on 13 and 14 September".
"Furthermore, as transmitted by the Parish Council that granted the space to the Court, the room will not be available on 27 September, for reasons related to the holding of local elections", reads the judge’s order.
In view of the situation, the judge decided to cancel the trial sessions scheduled for 13, 14 and 27 September and there is as yet no new date for the trial.
In October 2020, the 89 defendants in the Hell's Angels case - accused of serious crimes, including criminal association - were all sent to trial, after the judge of the Central Criminal Investigation Court (TCIC), Carlos Alexandre, confirmed the case to the Public Ministry (MP).
The indictment has more than a thousand pages and in one of the passages of the document, to which Lusa had access, the TCIC judge concludes that, given the evidence analysed, "this group is not a simple recreational biker club, but a group of people who organise themselves (...) in a paramilitary style or similar to militia".
Carlos Alexandre considered that all elements that make up the Hell's Angels 'biker' group are "in absolute consonance, hierarchical and imbued with obedience to the statutes (of the club) and the obligations arising from it".
