Paris Robbery: French Police Release Kim Kardashian
No fewer than 16 people were arrested in France on Monday over the robbery of reality TV star, Kim Kardashian, in a Paris, France apartment in October, media sources said.
Attackers wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings burst into the block in the early hours of October 3, tied Kardashian up at gunpoint and stole 9 million Euros worth of jewelry.
The driver who drove Kim kardashian around Paris was among the 16 people arrested for the armed robbery attack on the star. This strengthens the theory that the attack had been an inside job done by people who knew her every movement...
The 27-year-old driver, it has been revealed, works for the limo company the Kardashian clan used whenever they were in Paris. The robbers had come at a time when Kim was alone while her body guard was away with her sisters, carting away jewellery worth £8.5 million and three months after the incident, arrests have finally been made in relation to the attack.
Kim’s lawyer, Barrister Jean Veil, has expressed his satisfaction at this new development, saying; “These arrests are a nice surprise because on the one hand, it will perhaps make it possible to find the jewellery. On the other hand, it puts an end to the outrageous speculation by some, who thought it was intelligent to pretend that this robbery was staged, or a publicity stunt organised by Ms Kardashian.”
As at this morning, the Paris prosecutor's office confirmed that three of the suspects in the Kim Kardashian's Paris robbery have been released. Kim's chauffeur and 16 others were detained Monday during raids across France.
The driver has been released along with two others as the investigation continues into the armed robbery of the reality star in October 2016.
According to the prosecutor, those held are between the ages of 23 and 73 and can be held for up to 96 hours for questioning.
The suspects were picked up by French police on Monday for questioning over the theft at gunpoint of jewels and cash worth $10 million from Kim in her Paris hotel room last year.
Jean Veil, Kim's French lawyer, had described the detentions as "a nice surprise," according to France's L'Express magazine. "On the one hand, it will perhaps mean the jewels will be recovered and on the other hand it puts an end to disgraceful speculation by some people, who thought it clever to pretend this robbery was a set-up or a publicity stunt by Madame Kardashian," the magazine quote's Veil as saying.
