New York (CNN) — Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will no longer face criminal charges related to allegations that he sexually assaulted a hotel housekeeper, the housekeeper’s attorney said Monday after meeting with prosecutors.
Kenneth Thompson made the announcement following a meeting that lasted less than half an hour, and hours after filing a motion asking a judge to halt proceedings in the case and appoint a special prosecutor.
«Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance has denied the right of a woman to get justice in a rape case,» Thompson said in as part of a brief statement. «He has not only turned his back on this innocent victim, but he has also turned back on the forensic, medical and other evidence in this case.
«If the Manhattan District Attorney who is elected to protect our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our wives, and our loved ones, is not going to stand up for them, when they’re raped or sexually assaulted, who will?»There was no immediate comment from the office of District Attorney Vance on Thompson’s claim, and this office earlier declined to comment on the motion.A status hearing for the case is scheduled for Tuesday.
В сухом остатке — Стросс-Кан не только больше не обвиняемый, но и больше не глава МВФ. И, более чем вероятно, больше не вероятный соперник Саркози на президентских выборах во Франции.
