Kim Kardashian West has had several public appearances canceled since she was robbed at gunpoint of $10 million worth of jewelry in Paris last year, but is set to break her social media silence this month — and court proceedings surrounding the robbery have been scheduled.
Not only did Kardashian West’s attackers get away with some of her flashy and valuable jewelry, the power of the star caused serious confusion and serious ramifications in the Parisian courts, according to CNN affiliate reports.
Case files published by the French justice ministry on Friday show that 12 people will stand trial after being arrested in connection with the armed robbery. Two have already pleaded guilty.
Of the 12, only five are linked to the Kardashian robbery and nine to jewelry crimes committed in Paris in 2018. But it was the potential conflict of interest among some of the investigating magistrates in the Kardashian case that led to a dismissal of many of the suspects earlier this year.
The following is a list of the suspects being tried, according to media reports based on the leaked case files.
1. Some of the same suspects will stand trial over jewelry crime in Paris; 2. The father of model Ana Beatriz Barros, arrested in a separate Paris jewelry robbery, has also been arrested; 3. Two brothers are among the suspects; 4. Even the child of a Kardashian associate will be tried over the Paris robbery; 5. A range of other suspects will be tried in Marseille for jewelry crime committed in connection with the Kardashian case.
