The Dutch international Quincy Promes is said to have been involved in a knife fight at a family party this summer. He was arrested and his lawyer is protesting her client’s innocence.
Dutch football player Quincy Promes of champion Ajax Amsterdam is in jail until further notice due to alleged involvement in a knife fight.
As a judicial spokesperson for the Dutch news agency ANP announced, the public prosecutor has not yet decided whether the 28-year-old will be brought before an examining magistrate. The three-day pre-trial detention could therefore be extended by another three days on Wednesday.
Promes was arrested by the police in Amsterdam on Sunday morning. He is said to have been involved in a knife fight at a family reunion last July in which his cousin was seriously injured in the knee.
Promes not while exercising
Promes’ lawyer Manon Aalmoes stated that her client was not involved in the incident and is cooperating with the law. Yehudi Moszkowicz, the alleged victim’s lawyer, contradicts this statement.
Ajax has not yet responded to the matter. However, Dutch broadcaster NOS reported that the club had confirmed that Promes was not on training on Sunday.
The day before, Promes was in the base for Ajax’s 4-0 win against PEC Zwolle and scored one goal.
