According to state broadcaster ERT, the young victim recognized only one of the perpetrators of the beating, an employee of the club. The perpetrator of Serbian origin was arrested, was taken to prosecutor and received a regular trial.
Information about the reasons that led to the fight and finally to the beating of the young tourist, is confusing. However, according to club workers they intervened after the British man, who was violent and out of control, had previously beaten a 19-year-old girl and attacked her with a bottle.
In order to prove their claim, they also posted photos of the beaten girl.
The incident reportedly took place on Friday, July 7, 2023.
It is recalled that it was again Serbian bouncers at a bar in Laganas who beat to death 22-year-old US student Bakari Henderson, whi was spending summer vacation on Zante in July 2017.
