The trial of Quincy Promes, who has been charged with attempted murder, is to begin on October 21.
In the summer of 2020, Promes was accused of stabbing a cousin in the knee at a family party in the Netherlands, causing the victim to suffer serious injuries.
He was initially charged by the Public Prosecution Service with attempted manslaughter/aggravated assault, but the charge was increased to attempted murder in March of this year ahead of the trial that was set to begin that month.
However, the trial was then postponed due to the illness of one of the participants, and a new date has now been set.
As per De Telegraaf, proceedings will begin with a pre-trial hearing on October 21, during which the wishes of the suspect and his lawyers will be discussed. Once that is complete, the trial will follow.
Promes currently resides in Russia, playing for Spartak Moscow.
