Maid will take stand against Strauss-Kahn (photos, video)
San Francisco residents are learning in top news today that the housekeeper who alleges she was attacked by Dominique Strauss-Kahn of the International Monetary Fund, will take the witness stand.
“Some of you in the media have portrayed the victim as part of some sinister plot to bring down Dominique Strauss-Kahn,” said the lawyer for the hotel housekeeper, who says she was sexually attacked by Strauss-Kahn. “That’s simply not true,” says the lawyer, reports newser.com
The former IMF managing director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, pleaded not guilty to the charges against him yesterday. That process took four minutes but drew international coverage, says the Sydney Morning Herald which can be purchased in San Francisco at the East-West news stand at the Embarcadero.
Strauss-Kahn has now hired famed attorney Benjamin Brafman, the lawyer who fought for Michael Jackson, to represent him.
With regard to the housekeeper taking the witness stand, San Francisco residents are learning what the Sofitel housekeeper will do.
“She is going to come into this courthouse, get on that witness stand, and tell the world what Dominique Strauss-Kahn did to her,” stated the Sofitel housekeeper’s lawyer.
The New York Times has reported that the lawyer says any idea that the encounter between the single mother was consensual is nothing more than ridiculous.
Mr. John Lipsky is now the Acting Managing Director. Mr. Strauss-Kahn resigned as Managing Director of the IMF on May 18, 2011.
San Francisco residents can follow this on local San Francisco station KTVU Channel 2 News. The late KTVU Channel 2 News comes on at 10pm local time.
