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
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.
