PARIS, Nov 22 — A key suspect in the robbery at gunpoint of US reality star Kim Kardashian in Paris last year has been released for medical reasons, his lawyers said yesterday.
Didier Dubreucq — nicknamed “Blue Eyes” — has been authorised to travel only for medical appointments, his lawyers Dominique Ousset and Victoria Anfuso, without disclosing the 62-year-old’s condition.
A career gangster who had already been convicted of robbery and drug trafficking, Dubreucq is suspected of being part of the five-man team that robbed Kardashian of a ring and other jewels worth millions in October 2016.
Kardashian was staying in a luxury residence during Paris Fashion Week when she was held up by men who threatened her with a gun before tying her up, gagging her and locking her in a bathroom.
The men made off in the middle of the night with a haul worth an estimated €9 million (RM43.80 million).
Six people are being held in connection with the case. — AFP
