DSK, case cracked?


Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s trial, which had to take place only on July 18th, was finally postponed today, on Friday, July 1st.

The reason?

Nafissatou Diallo, the presumed victim, would have lied to numerous occasions during her auditions.  For example, she omitted the fact that she cleaned another room before alerting a supervisor to her claims of sexual assault (strange, isn’t it?).

Prosecutors have agreed that Mr Strauss-Kahn should be freed “on his own recognisance”, meaning he must simply promise to appear in court.


He is accused of sexually assaulting a maid in a New York hotel on 14 May.


The case is now close to collapse, US media reports say.


The 62-year-old French politician – who had been seen as a leading candidate for the French presidency – appeared in court in New York on Friday over the sexual assault case.


However, the alleged victim’s lawyer, Kenneth P Thompson, maintained on Friday that his client’s story was genuine and that Mr Strauss-Kahn was guilty of sexual assault charges.


“The only defence Dominique Strauss-Kahn has is that this sexual encounter was consensual. That is a lie,” he said.

Anyway, the case would continue to be investigated so we might hear about this story for a little while.  So, the author os the book below will have to write another book!

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
