Quincy Promes set to be prosecuted for importing over 1,300 kilos of cocaine

Spartak Moscow attacker Quincy Promes will face prosecution for his alleged involvement in the importation of over 1,370 kilos of cocaine, according to Het Parool.

Promes has long been under suspicion for his ties to criminal elements.

The Amsterdam criminal investigation department has approached him two times regarding his associations with known criminals. 

The Public Prosecution Service has now decided to take legal action against the former Ajax winger for his alleged role in importing two significant cocaine shipments.

The first batch consists of approximately 650 kilograms of cocaine. The second was nearly 720 kg. They were intercepted at the port of Antwerp back in January 2020. 

The investigation into Promes’ alleged involvement in drug trafficking led the police to tap his phone, initially due to his connection to a stabbing incident during a family party in Abcoude. 

During the tapped conversations, Promes discussed the stabbing incident. This admission resulted in the authorities expanding their inquiry to include drug-related offences. 

In the case of the stabbing, prosecutors accused the footballer of aggravated assault and demanded a two-year prison sentence. 

The court did not find sufficient evidence to support charges of attempted murder or manslaughter.

Promes had allegedly shouted during and after the incident that he wanted to kill his cousin. But the court determined that his actions did not demonstrate a clear intent to kill.

Prosecutors demanded a two-year prison sentence for aggravated assault, as Promes had vehemently expressed his desire to kill his cousin.

The court was to deliver its ruling in March but surprised many by reopening the case. 

This unexpected turn of events has left Promes and his legal team scrambling to address the latest developments.

The stabbing case will continue on Monday in an Amsterdam court.

There will then be a subsequent cocaine case, although it is unclear whether Promes will show up as he is in Russia.
