NewsBritish man, 29, dead after 'brawl with bouncer' outside Cyprus nightclub

The death of a British man in Cyprus has raised concerns about safety and security within the nightlife scene of the island.

Huseyin Mavideniz, 29, reportedly lost his life following an altercation with bouncers outside a club in Iskele, located in northern Cyprus.

The incident has prompted discussions about the need for improved security measures and accountability in such establishments.

Local reports indicate that Mavideniz was allegedly subjected to repeated head punches by the club’s security staff.

He was subsequently taken to Famagusta State Hospital but did not survive his injuries.

A group of men later arrived at the hospital and caused damage to the accident and emergency department using a sledgehammer. The motives behind this act remain unclear and are currently under investigation.

Details surrounding the initial confrontation have started to emerge. The incident reportedly occurred around 3.30 am outside the ‘Breeze’ bar in Trikomo, where Mavideniz was involved in a dispute with a 26-year-old individual.

The 26-year-old has been arrested by the police, while another person is being sought in connection with the incident. 

Additionally, local news outlet Kibris Gazetesi has reported that 10 individuals have been arrested on charges related to “serious assault and grave damage,” potentially linked to the disturbances at the hospital.

An additional layer of intrigue emerged when a group of unidentified individuals reportedly prevented a reporter from Cyprus news site Yenidüzen from taking photographs of the scene and compelled them to delete existing images from their phone.

Mavideniz’s trip to Cyprus took a tragic turn, overshadowing its intended purpose. He had travelled with his father, who sought medical treatment.
