Ex-Netherlands international Quincy Promes sentenced to 18 months in prison for stabbing his cousin after court finds him guilty of assault but not attempted murder

Former Netherlands international Quincy Promes has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for stabbing his cousin.

The 31-year-old forward, who plays for Russian club Spartak Moscow, was arrested in December 2020 regarding the incident which happened in July that yr.

The court within the Netherlands found charges of assault against Promes proven, but found there was no attempted murder or manslaughter, in keeping with ESPN.

He must pay €7,000 [£5,973] in compensation to the victim.  

Promes can be being prosecuted within the Netherlands for alleged involvement in drugs trafficking.

He’s suspected of being involved with smuggling 1,360 kilograms of cocaine to the Netherlands or Belgium in two shipments in 2020.

Promes, formerly of Ajax, denied the fees however the court found there was enough evidence from two eyewitnesses and intercepted phone conversations at hand down a jail term. 

The stabbing, to the leg, occurred at a family party at a warehouse in Abcoude after Promes got into an argument over a stolen necklace. 

He was playing within the Netherlands for Ajax on the time but moved to Spartak in February 2021.

The judge criticised Promes, who’s currently in Russia, for not coming to the court to defend himself or expressing any remorse.

His sentence would have been six months less had he done so. Promes can appeal the conviction.

Given he’s in Russia, it’s unclear whether Promes will return to the Netherlands to serve his prison sentence. 

In keeping with NOS, there isn’t a extradition agreement between Russia and the Netherlands, and it could actually only be requested if Promes fails with any appeal.

Nonetheless, due to drug trafficking allegations, Promes could be arrested if he sets foot in Europe or any country with an extradition treaty with the Netherlands.

Russian clubs are currently banned from playing in UEFA’s competitions in Europe due to conflict in Ukraine.  

The Amsterdam-born forward played 50 times for the Dutch national team, scoring seven goals.

Starting his profession at Twente, he had a four-year stint with Spartak between 2014 and 2018 before signing for Spanish club Sevilla.

From there, he spent a season-and-a-half with Ajax before returning to Spartak. He has scored 37 goals in 74 games for the club during his second spell.
