Lawyer Moszkowicz about the stabbing incident around Quincy Promes

Promes trending gist

Lawyer Yehudi Moszkowicz of Quincy Promes' nephew gave a detailed explanation to Humberto on Tuesday evening about the alleged stabbing incident that took place last year. Moszkowicz and his client have "no idea" of the reason, but suspect it is something from the past. Furthermore, the lawyer finds it indigestible that the Public Prosecution Service does not announce whether a prosecution will be initiated. For the time being, however, Moszkowicz has no means to force the Public Prosecution Service to do so, because a so-called Article 12 procedure would take months. That would mean that the European Championship for Promes is not in danger.

The reason for the stabbing incident
Humberto Tan asks Moszkowicz in his own talk show about the possible reason, also because nothing became clear about this in the victim's earlier interview with De Telegraaf . "That's a very good question," Moszkowicz said. "My client says, 'I have no idea.' It was out of nowhere. Or nothing at all. If he had to start thinking about what could be, then he must think back to something from the past. But not something about what happened in that moment. There was no He was invited. Everyone knew he was there, they were talking together. There was no reason. And still: there is never really a reason to stab someone, is there.”

Victim did not want to go to the police
Initially, the victim did not want a criminal case at all, explains Moszkowicz. "A week or one and a half after the incident, he reported to me at the office and said what had happened. I said: 'Find a report. You were stabbed, that is a serious criminal offense: reporting it.' Then he said, "I'm very proud of my cousin. I don't want his career... he has a unique opportunity in life, that's for few, I don't want that to get thwarted by this. It's family, so I actually want an alternative. What can we do?' I said: 'The normal route then is to hold someone liable for the damage suffered.'"

Promes' initial offer
And so Moszkowicz sent a letter to Promes. "At one point, a letter came from someone who said he was an advocate. It was even suggested that she was a lawyer, when she was not. In it, an amount of several thousand euros was offered and said: 'That must be it. Moszkowicz and his client did not agree with such an amount. "What people need to realize: My client isn't in it for money, but he can't work. He's someone who makes a living with his hands, he owns a handyman business. He can't bend his knee, there's scar tissue on it the tendon that attaches your kneecap to your thigh, so it can't work now, and possibly permanently stop doing the work it used to do. That's some serious damage, this should of course be looked at as compensation. If there is no solution, then a lawsuit is insurmountable. A civil suit, because again, my client didn't really want a criminal case. He didn't want to go to the police to protect Promes' career."

Why there was a criminal investigation
Moszkowicz explains how the police eventually got involved. "At one point we were talking with a lawyer, then a real lawyer intervened. First Mrs. Aalmoes (and later Gerard Spong, ed.). Then the police found out themselves through a report from Team Criminal Intelligence ( CID) They came to my client: "We heard a story that you were stabbed by Quincy Promes." He didn't want to confirm that at first, because of the purpose he had. Then he called me and I said: 'At least go talk to them.' At one point, the police said, "We take this very seriously. You can't just stab someone in this country. Someone has to answer to the judge for that." Then I said to my client, " That's what I've always told you. This is the normal course of business.' He then agreed to file a complaint. Then Promes was finally arrested and from that point on… he was released within two days."

Why the Public Prosecution Service should prosecute according to Moszkowicz
When Moszkowicz was told that the investigation was finished, he requested the file from the Public Prosecution Service. There was no response. "The problem here is that the Public Prosecution Service does not even want to confirm that they are going to bring him to court. That is very abrasive. Every normal Dutch person who is suspected of such a criminal offense, against which there is such evidence, is in pre-trial detention. the national coach rightly says: everyone is innocent until proven otherwise. But people who are suspected of similar criminal offenses are still incarcerated while they still have the presumption of innocence for themselves. According to the lawyer, that is completely incomprehensible. understanding: you can rely on my legal insight in that regard, I do a lot of criminal cases. You need a statement an injury and, if possible, an eyewitness. And there are several of them in this case. So it's a straight-forward, hard case. What is going on now why the Public Prosecution Service does not prosecute? That is the question I cannot answer. My client takes seriously that they do not want to harm the European Championship."

The comparison with the Badr Hari-Koen Everink case
The lawyer compares the Promes case with a case from the past involving kick boxer Badr Hari. "He was suspected of the serious assault of Koen Everink, not even with a weapon, but with similar injuries to the leg. Hari was arrested immediately upon landing in the Netherlands after he went abroad. It was in July and he was arrested. then held in pre-trial detention until November. Why there and not here? I can't explain it to my client."

No legal means to enforce legal action
Moszkowicz previously threatened with a so-called Article 12 procedure, but now it appears that this is not a short-term solution. "You can file an Article 12 complaint if the Public Prosecution Service does not want to prosecute or does not make a decision. That is a process that will probably take several months, but that is the only real remedy you have. If I were to start summary proceedings, then the judge will probably say: 'Filing Article 12 complaint.' So we have no effective remedy at the moment and can do nothing at all."
