Inside Quincy Promes' horror UAE jail where rape is 'everyday occurrence'

DISGRACED football star Quincy Promes is enduring brutal living conditions in a prison in the United Arab Emirates.

Promes, 32, stood out for the likes of Sevilla and Ajax but his career has taken a nosedive after his recent legal troubles.

The winger has been sentenced to six years in prison for his involvement in the smuggling of 1,363kg of cocaine with an estimated street value of £65million.

That came after the ex-Netherlands international received an 18-month sentence last year for stabbing his cousin in the knee at a family party.

Promes was away in Russia playing for Spartak Moscow during the legal proceedings but was arrested in Dubai by border control at the request of Dutch authorities last month and wasn't allowed to fly back.

And now the Dutchman is living in the infamous Al Aweer prison in the UAE, which is a far cry from all the glitz and glamour famous footballers usually enjoy.

According to De Telegraaf, the ex-Twente star stays in a six-person cell and sleeps in a double bunk bed with up to 20 prisoners also lying on the floor.

The cells are freezing cold as well as noisy and more harrowingly rape is an everyday occurrence as the prison has a small number of guards available.

Prisoners are also forced to shave their heads bald or else they are deprived TV or phone privileges.

The jailhouse also doesn't serve fruit or vegetables and inmates can only exercise up to three times a week.

This poses as an issue in Promes' bid to retain fitness as he is still contracted to Spartak until 2025.

The ex-Netherlands youth star can only watch TV outside his cell during the day with other fellow inmates.

The forward is desperate to be extradited but wants to go back to Russia so that he doesn't have to serve his sentence in his homeland.

Promes shares the cell with other Dutchmen who are also expecting extradition.

They are joined by other inmates - mostly of Pakistani, Egyptian and Indian descent - who are addicts and not aware of Promes' status.

The player's lawyers had previously said: "We point out that an independent judge in Dubai will now decide on the Dutch request for extradition.

"In general, extradition proceedings can take quite some time and involve many formal steps and requirements.

"This is also completely common in the Netherlands. The outcome and duration of the extradition procedure cannot be predicted at this time."
