12 Suspects To Stand Trail In 2016 Kim Kardashain Jewel Heist

Following the 2016 $10 million jewelry heist targeting Kim Kardashian West, a dozen people will now stand trial in Paris, according to French authorities.

Five years ago, the reality TV superstar said she was tied up at gunpoint and locked in a bathroom after armed robbers forced their way into her rented Paris apartment during fashion week.

Following a half decade of investigation, judges have now ordered the case be sent to trial with 12 suspects facing a range of charges related to the theft, though Kardashian’s French lawyer did not immediately comment.

For health reasons several suspects have been released from jail pending trial, including 68-year-old Yunice Abbas, one of the five men accused of carrying out the heist, who published a book about it last year. And, Aomar Ait Khedache, the alleged mastermind wrote Kardashian West an apology letter from his prison cell, saying he regrets his actions and realizes the psychological damage he caused.

At the time of the crime, a spokeswoman for the victim said she was badly shaken but physically unharmed.
