Two Qatari that had just left Le Bourget airport in the northeast of Paris on Monday were women were held up by robbers with their driver on a Paris motorway.

They were then robbed of valuables worth “at least five million euros ”, police sources said on Tuesday.

Their Bentley was held up by two masked men, who sprayed them with tear gas and stole “everything in the vehicle: jewels, clothes, luggage”, one source said.

This is the latest robbery against the wealthy, which has also targeted the likes of Kim Kardashian.

Frankly, you simply must be totally nuts to carry as much in jewels, money, etc without having also (armed) body-guards. Now, what becomes funny, is that the bandits were “armed” only with tear-gas! Anyway, all these wealthy persons have insurances, no firearms were used, it’s likely that unless they get intl from some informer, French police will not move their asses a lot for such a case, it’s not like when Sarkozy, then interior minister and pez candidate, had his son’s scooter stolen, nonetheless, the scooter was fastly found back but cops even used DNA tests to find who stole… Read more »

I do not agree with crime BUT their money has been de facto looted from the Qatari people anyway and the Qatari’s also have enough spare billions of $ to fund terrorism in Syria and beyond. So on balance , it has lightened up my day 🙂

Qatari people? They’re 278k only… But about 2M inhabitants in the country, incl. 1.2M Indians, most often deprived of their passports, in other terms, de facto slaves! And better don’t go to the cops if you’re an hotel maid and get raped : it’s not the rapist which will go to jail put the raped! It even happened to a tourist recently and it wasn’t the 1st time! Well they have mostly off-shoe drillings but also get money from the gigantic al-Udeid AFB owned by the US and Brits (and CENTCOM) although I clearly think that the main resource is… Read more »

I do not agree with crime to but… Is stealing from thieves a crime or redistribution?

Cry me a diamond glacier! If you’re the type of person who is able to walk around with millions worth of valuables on your person, you’ll get no sympathy from me.

Isis: New terror plot foiled in France with arrest of seven suspects in Strasbourg and Marseille : http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/isis-terror-attacks-plots-europe-france-latest-foiled-suspects-arrested-network-strasbourg-marseille-a7429931.html Many here don’t even understand how our cops are doing great. Well it has even some advantages having them chasing terrorists as we have the highest number of cop per capita, usually they’re more into stopping cars and doing near racket on drivers. In case of counter-terror, well, with 1 cop for 283 people, it’s very difficult to pass through the nest while you have at least one living in your street… +480 terrorists arrested since the start of the year, actually,… Read more »
