Promes, who was not present, is accused of being involved in the smuggling of more than 1,350 kilograms of cocaine through the port of Antwerp. The public prosecutor’s office had demanded nine years in prison – but it is still unclear when and whether Promes will begin his sentence.

The 32-year-old plays for Spartak Moscow in Russia and has no plans to leave. In addition, Russia and the Netherlands do not have an extradition treaty. Promes’ lawyers had previously argued that the former Ajax Amsterdam professional’s “labor obligations” took precedence over the criminal investigation. He also told his lawyers that he denied any guilt.

Promes and his co-defendant and uncle, who has already been convicted, are said to belong to a network of drug traffickers, many of whose members have now been arrested.

Promes had previously been sentenced to 18 months in prison for injuring his cousin with a knife. In this context, Promes must also pay compensation to the injured party.
