The Public Prosecution Service suspects 31-year-old Promes and a co-suspect of the import of two consignments of cocaine via the Western Scheldt and the port of Antwerp, where they were intercepted in January 2020. The first batch involved 650 blocks of cocaine of one kilogram each, while the second batch was intended to smuggle more than 712 kilograms into the Netherlands.

On Monday afternoon, June 5, the court in Amsterdam will hold a first pre-trial hearing in the new case with the investigation name Porto. Promes will not be present due to contractual obligations at his Russian club Spartak Moscow. He also fears being arrested because the Public Prosecution Service wants to hear about his involvement in drug trafficking.

It was already known that Promes’ phone was tapped. This emerged in another criminal case about the abuse of his cousin, in which the tapped telephone conversations were used as evidence. Promes is said to have stabbed his cousin in the knee on the night of July 24 to 25, 2020 at a party in Abcoude. The Public Prosecution Service previously wanted to charge him with attempted manslaughter, but now sticks to aggravated assault and demands two years in prison. That case will continue on Monday.

Promes was a Dutch international fifty times, but has not been selected since the stabbing and thus missed the World Cup in Qatar. The striker played for Ajax at the time of the facts. In February 2021 he returned to Spartak, whose colors he also defended from 2014 to 2018.

No date has yet been announced on which the Porto case will be dealt with substantively. If Promes stays in Russia and does not come to the Netherlands, the case can be heard by the court without his presence.
