Now That Strauss-Kahn is Out of the Way, Sexual Assault Case Looks Weak
Just days after French finance minister Christine Lagarde was chosen as the new head of the IMF, now comes news that the case against DSK may not be as cut and dry as first suspected.
Gee, that's not at all sketchy.
The Guardian reports:
The prosecution case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund and French presidential hopeful accused of sexually assaulting a hotel maid, is close to collapse, according to the New York Times.
The newspaper reports that significant problems have emerged with the case against the former IMF boss that could see the conditions of his house arrest in New York being relaxed with immediate effect.
Based on interviews with two unnamed law enforcement officers, it says that "major holes" in the case will be admitted to a federal criminal court in Manhattan as early as Friday. New York Police Department had no comment last night.
NYT has some comments straight from court.
It would be really funny if it weren't so sad. I'm still curious to find out what it was, exactly, that DSK did to deserve this kind of treatment. Something tells me it had absolutely nothing to do with inappropriate sexual advances and everything to do with pissing off a select group of folk who want to see the bailouts continue until morale improves.
