Rodnina said that the football player Promes will not receive Russian citizenship in case of a criminal record
Three-time Olympic champion, State Duma deputy Irina Rodnina assessed the case of the Dutch striker of the Moscow “Spartak” Quincy Promes on participation in drug smuggling. Her words are quoted by Metaratings.ru.
“We must first wait for the court’s decision, and then there will be the following actions,” Rodnina said. She stressed that Spartak should not seek Russian citizenship for a football player if he gets a criminal record.
On May 30, the Dutch Public Prosecutor’s Office decided to prosecute Promes for participating in the organization of the transportation of two consignments of cocaine with a total weight of 1,370 kilograms. During the investigation, the police tapped the midfielder’s phone.
In early January, the Dutch prosecutor’s office suspected Promes in connection with the Surinamese drug dealer Pete Wortell. Then it was noted that the football player and his relatives invested in a consignment of drugs, which was seized by the Dutch police in April 2020.
Promes returned to Spartak on February 25, 2021. Prior to that, he played for the red and white from 2014 to 2018, becoming the champion of Russia and the owner of the country’s Super Cup with the team.
