Salvatore Cazzetta, a former head of the Hells Angels who has been held since a major police raid in November 2015 has been released.
The Crown said that it was not opposed to the petition presented a few days ago by the influential biker's lawyer. The judge of the superior Court then ordered his release. Cazzetta was imprisoned at Rivière-des-Prairies prison since his arrest.|
Originally he was accused of conspiracy, gangsterism and the possession of stolen property. The charge of conspiracy was dropped by the prosecution and that of gangsterism has been withdrawn following a decision by the same judge on July 27. It will be a long list of conditions that need to be complied with once out of prison, the prohibition to communicate with his co-accused and with all the members of the Hells Angels among them.
