The incident happened on 1 August between 4am and 6am in Paceville. A video of the fracas taken by a bystander showed a group of what were believed to be Syrian nationals throwing glass bottles towards the façade of Havana Club in a standoff with bouncers.

The court granted the two men bail against a deposit of €1,000 and a personal guarantee of €4,000. They were also ordered to sign the bail book at the police station twice a week.

Inspector Leeroy Balzan Engerer prosecuted, while lawyers Arthur Azzopardi, Alfred Abela and Rene Darmanin appeared for the men.
