NEW YORK (AP) — New York City prosecutors asked a judge Monday to dismiss all criminal charges against former International Monetary Fund chief
Dominique Strauss-Kahn because they aren't sure beyond a reasonable doubt that the hotel maid who created a cross-continental sensation by accusing
him of sexual assault is telling the truth.
The looks of it are that she lied...
"In virtually every substantive interview with prosecutors, despite entreaties to simply be truthful, she has not been truthful on matters great and
small," the lawyers wrote.
or is it a case of prosecutors deciding to late they cant handle the pressure....
Diallo, and her attorney, Kenneth Thompson, met briefly with representatives of the Manhattan district attorney's office to discuss the decision not
to proceed with the prosecution. Thompson didn't say what had happened inside or reveal what his client was told, but he recited a short statement
condemning prosecutors for their handling of the case.
"Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance has denied the right of a woman to get justice in a rape case," he said. "He has not only turned his back
on this innocent victim. But he has also turned his back on the forensic, medical and other physical evidence in this case."
Thompson is asking a judge for an order disqualifying the prosecutor's office from handling the case. Diallo is also suing Strauss-Kahn, seeking to
make him pay financially if not with his freedom, a move that the diplomat's lawyers helped erode her credibility.
Well having followed it I was left with some weird thoughts on this one... WHY????
It made very little since on the progression of events.... I know this will start stuff but something smelled fishy to me...
My thoughts is that regardless it is a huge set back for rape victims but I have to file it under false charges set back.... Either way I hope
regardless the woman seeks help or continues it...
