|A judge has agreed to allow the provincial director of civil forfeiture to conduct an inspection of two Hells Angels clubhouses being targeted in court proceedings.|
On Friday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Barry Davies approved a consent order that had been signed by all parties allowing an inspection to be carried out of the Vancouver and Kelowna clubhouses.

|The order was signed by lawyers acting for a number of Hells Angels named as defendants including John Peter Bryce, Damiano Di Popolo, Jean Violette and John Punko.|
The court order was the latest development in a legal action that stretches back to 2007, when the director filed suit against the notorious motorcycle club’s Nanaimo clubhouse. The Vancouver Island case is ongoing and has been merged with the lawsuit filed by the director in 2012 that seeks forfeiture of the Vancouver and Kelowna clubhouses.
