A spokesperson confirmed this on Wednesday NRC after reporting by NH Nieuws. It concerns the Central Netherlands Public Prosecution Service; the suspects of the violence come from Het Gooi.

A 27-year-old man from Waddinxveen was killed last weekend after being seriously injured in a fight in Palma, Mallorca. Camera images would show that he was kicked several times in the head while he was lying on the ground. He was then admitted to intensive care with brain injuries, where he eventually died.
Most of the suspects fled to the Netherlands. One of them was arrested, but released because he would not have played a major role in the fight. According to local media, eight suspects have been identified. It would be boys between the ages of 18 and 20 from Hilversum and Bussum.
