"The Public Prosecution Office decided to prosecute a 29-year-old person from Amsterdam for manslaughter and committing dangerous acts," the Amsterdam public prosecutor's office said in an official statement, without revealing the identity of this person.

At the time, the player's lawyer, Manon Al-Moys, rejected the accusations against her client, and said, "Promis completely denies the accusations against him. He was not at the place when the knife attack took place, confirming that the player "fully responded to the investigation."
Promis was among the members of the Dutch national team.
