Dubai Police Reportedly Hold Quincy Promes Post Spartak Moscow Training, Weeks After Cocaine Smuggling Sentence

In a shocking turn of events, Quincy Promes, associated with Spartak Moscow, is reportedly in the custody of Dubai police after a mid-season training camp with the team.

This development comes just weeks after Promes received a prison sentence for his involvement in smuggling over 1,350 kilograms of cocaine in January 2020.

Prison Sentence and Recent Events

Quincy Promes, formerly with Ajax, was sentenced to six years in prison in February for his role in a significant cocaine smuggling operation.

The Dutchman’s troubles do not end there, as in June of the previous year, he received an 18-month prison sentence for stabbing his cousin.

The recent incident in Dubai unfolded when Promes was stopped at border control, preventing him from returning to Russia with his teammates.

Connection to Criminal Conviction Suspected

According to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, there is speculation in Russia that Quincy Promes being held by Dubai police might be linked to his criminal conviction.

However, this connection remains unconfirmed.

Promes was charged in May for his alleged participation in smuggling the intercepted cocaine in two batches, each weighing 650kg and 713kg, in January 2020.

Prosecution’s Allegations and Player’s Perception

The Public Prosecution Service officially found Promes guilty of importing, exporting, transporting, and possessing the drugs.

Reports suggest that the former Netherlands international perceives himself as “untouchable” and deliberately avoided attending court dates.

Prosecutors expressed astonishment at how a successful footballer could involve himself deeply in crime, seeking a nine-year prison sentence for Promes.

Details of Cocaine Smuggling Case and Promes’ Wealth

The prosecution alleged that Quincy Promes, due to his wealth, had the means to invest and played a higher organizational role in the cocaine trade.

Prosecutors contended that Promes seemed to normalize and romanticize the illicit trade.

The 31-year-old forward, playing for Spartak Moscow, was arrested in December 2020 regarding an incident in July of the same year, where he faced charges of assault.

Stabbing Incident and Court’s Findings

The court in the Netherlands found charges of assault against Promes proven but ruled out attempted murder or manslaughter.

The stabbing incident occurred at a family party, triggered by a dispute over a stolen necklace. Promes, who was with Ajax at the time, moved to Spartak Moscow in February 2021.
