Damiano Di Popolo
|A member of the Hells Angels has launched a defamation suit against a Surrey, B.C., blogger committed to "outing" members of the gang. In a B.C. Supreme Court notice of civil claim, Damiano Di Popolo claims a series of five articles published on Dennis Watson's Gangsters Out Blog have exposed him to "contempt, ridicule and hatred."|
Di Popolo says the posts imply he's a member of a criminal organization involved with a drug trafficking and stolen car ring.
But he claims nothing could be further from the truth.
Di Popolo says he has never been charged with a criminal offence or convicted, and the Kelowna Hells Angels have never been collectively charged either.
