Suspects in Kim Kardashian’s $10 million jewellery heist to stand trial
Kardashian was held at gunpoint before being tied up and locked in a bathroom during the robbery in 2016.
A total of 12 suspects are facing charges over the robbery of $10 million in jewellery from Kim Kardashian in 2016.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was held at gunpoint before being tied up and locked in a bathroom, after armed robbers forced their way into the apartment she was renting during Paris Fashion Week.
The case has been sent to trial after five years of investigation, a French judicial official confirmed on Friday. A start date has yet to be confirmed.
Several suspects have been released from jail while awaiting the trial due to health reasons, reported Sky News, of which 67-year-old Yunice Abbas is one of five men accused of carrying out the heist.
Abbas published a book about the incident last year while Aomar Ait Khedache, who allegedly masterminded the robbery, wrote an apology letter to Kardashian from his prison cell.
In the note, he claimed he regretted his actions and acknowledged the psychological damage he caused after the reality TV star was left badly shaken but physically unharmed.
