If Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. had decided to codename his investigation of former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, he might have called it “Operation Rock and a Hard Place.”
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former International Monetary Fund chief who won dismissal of sexual- assault charges in New York, still faces a lawsuit by his accuser and remains the subject of a French rape investigation.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn , the former head of the International Monetary Fund, was released from jail on Rikers Island and taken to a downtown Manhattan residence, where he will be under 24-hour private armed guard.
A recorded conversation by the woman who accuses Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her in a New York hotel was mischaracterized regarding her remarks about the former International Monetary Fund chief’s wealth, her lawyer said.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. will ask a judge to dismiss sexual-assault charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn because they’d be difficult to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, former prosecutors predict.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, was charged by three investigating judges in the northern French city of Lille with procurement in a prostitution ring, prosecutors said.
