A British man has allegedly been beaten to death by bouncers in Cyprus, according to local reports.
Huseyin Mavideniz, 29, died after being attacked early morning on Thursday outside a club in Iskele, North Cyprus.
He was allegedly punched in the head several times by the club’s security before being rushed to Famagusta State Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Mavideniz sustained a brain haemorrhage according to the initial autopsy report.
Deputy Chief Physician of Famagusta State Hospital, Dr. Eyüp Göksu, told Yenidüzen: ‘He died when he came to the hospital. The cops are investigating right now. We will receive detailed information from our doctors on duty.’
The young father of two lived in London with his wife and worked in a car garage. Mavideniz is understood to have travelled to Cyprus with his father for him to have medical treatment.
A total of 13 people were arrested in connection with the incident in the entertainment venue.
The court ordered that the four suspects be detained in custody for three days, pending further enquiries.
It has also been locally reported that Mavideniz’s funeral will be taking place following Friday(11 Aug) prayers in Famagusta, North Cyprus.
The shocking news of Mavideniz’s death has also hit the national news in the UK, questioning the safety of Brits on holiday following a number of incidents with club and bar security staff in Europe.
