Reality star Kim Kardashian was the victim of a $10 million jewellery robbery while on vacation in Paris in 2010, which took place more than five years ago this month.
Following an armed robbery at her leased apartment during New York Fashion Week, the mother of four revealed that she was “tied up at gunpoint and trapped in a toilet,” as we reported then.
Following a lengthy investigation, the matter has been assigned to a judge, who has ordered that it be tried on Friday.
There have been a total of 12 suspects identified, all of whom are facing charges linked to the theft of property. At this moment, there is no set date for the trial, and officials declined to release any other information to the media outlet.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Aomar Ait Khedache, who has come to be recognised as the accused mastermind behind the robbery, sent Kardashian an apologetic letter from his jail cell, according to reports.
“Following the observation of your emotions and the realisation of the psychological harm I had caused…” “I made the decision to write to you, not to solicit any type of indulgence from you,” he explained at the time.
“Please know that I completely understand the anguish you, your children, your spouse, and your close family members are through. I hope that reading this letter will help you to forget the anguish that you experienced as a result of my actions.”
In addition, the three of the accused have been freed from custody pending trial due to health concerns.
They include Yunice Abbas, who at 68 years old was one of the five men who carried out the attack on Kardashian’s home and went on to produce a book titled “I Sequestered Kim Kardashian,” which details her experiences.
