Former Dutch international and current Spartak Moscow forward Quincy Promes is being prosecuted for the import of more than 1300 kilos of cocaine.
- Quincy Promes linked to 1300kg cocaine shipment
- Forward suspected of attempted manslaughter
- Promes earned 50 caps for Holland
What is the news?
According to a report by the NOS, the Public Prosecution Service has stated that Promes has been involved in drug trafficking. It is believed that the former Ajax forward has been linked with two batches of 650 kilos and 713 kilos. The two shipments were intercepted in the port of Belgian city Antwerp. According to the National Drug Monitor, the two shipments combined would have a total worth of 75 million euros.
Promes, who currently plays for Spartak Moscow, has long been suspected of involvement in drug trafficking and participation in a criminal organization. Two years ago, whilst playing for Ajax, the forward was accused of stabbing a family member during a party. During the investigation Promes completed a transfer to Spartak Moscow.
What will happen?
Russia does not have an extradition treaty with the Netherlands, so the attacker does not have to fear a prison sentence. Only if he’s found guilty on the charges and returns to the Netherlands he will be arrested and needs to serve time in jail. The investigation on the attempted manslaughter against his family member is still ongoing and the final part of the case will be heard next Monday.
