(Bobigny) Lawyers announced Wednesday that they had obtained “the authorization to seize the rights” of the book I kidnapped Kim Kardashian, in which 67-year-old thug Yunice Abbas recounts the thunderous robbery of the American star in Paris in 2016.
These lawyers, Me Henri de Beauregard and Me Mohand Ouidja, represent the night watchman of the luxury building in the heart of Paris in which the star of the reality TV had rented an apartment.
In a statement, they said they had obtained Tuesday, “an order of the judicial court of Bobigny authorizing the seizure of rights” of the author on the sales of his book published at the beginning of the month.
From scouting to acting out, Yunice Abbas describes in detail a “coup” according to him perfectly executed where a team of five men, all aged 60 to 72, stole 9 million euros of jewelry from the star American woman, threatened with a weapon then tied up and gagged.
“Our client considers this communication campaign indecent. He maintains that the individuals who attacked him that evening were not peaceful “grandpa robbers”, but determined and armed criminals, ”they said.
The night watchman, who worked to finance his studies at the Sorbonne, had been “neutralized by several people at the threat of a weapon”, they recalled.
Seizing the rights “would mean that the rights paid to Mr. Abbas, he could not touch them.” They would be placed under seizure until the day when they would be paid to our client ”in compensation for the damage suffered, explained to AFP Me de Beauregard, stressing that his client had retained the psychological consequences of this robbery carried out in the middle of Fashion week .
Arrested three months after the facts, Mr. Abbas and eleven alleged accomplices, including several figures of French banditry convicted several times in the 1980s and 1990s, are awaiting trial today.
Last June, the Paris prosecutor’s office had requested their referral to an assize court, in particular for “organized robbery with a weapon”, “kidnapping” and “criminal association”.
Asked, the L’Archipel publishing house did not react immediately.
