Kim Kardashian to return to France if summoned by judge leading the robbery investigation


Kim Kardashian is prepared to return to France if summoned by a judge leading the investigation into the £9 million robbery which saw the reality TV star attacked in Paris, her lawyer said today.

The 35-year-old left the country within a few hours of the October 3 heist, and is furious at claims that it was all a publicity set up.

Kim insists a gun was put to her head, and that she was gagged and tied up during the horrifying crime, and is suing those who dispute such claims.

Jean Veil, the 68-year-old celebrity Paris barrister who is now representing Ms Kardashian’s interests in France, said ‘she is very calm and very determined over a matter that was particularly violent’.

Asked by the BFM news channel if Kim would actually come back to France as the investigation progressed, Mr Veil said: “If she is summoned to France, she will come to France, but judges also have the possibility of moving [to the USA].

“My client travels a lot, she will probably have to come to France … We’ll see how it works out.”

In line with all criminal investigations in France, Kim can be summoned to give evidence as a key witness at any time.

This is a formal process, which can not be done on the phone, or even via a video link.
