Source: Prosecution Will Drop Case Against Former IMF Head Strauss-Kahn

Crime

"Her credibility is so bad now..."

A "top investigator" in the rape case against former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has reportedly told the New York Post that the charges against the Frenchman will be dropped. This comes after he was released from custody without bail last week, when prosecutors learned his accuser had some inconsistencies in her story.

"We all know this case is not sustainable," the source told The Post.

"Her credibility is so bad now, we know we cannot sustain a case with her," the source added. "She is not to be believed in anything that comes out of her mouth -- which is a shame, because now we may never know what happened in that hotel room."

"Did [Strauss-Kahn] use force? Was there actually a crime? I don't think we'll ever know."

The accuser is a Guinean hotel maid who has accused Strauss-Kahn of a violent sexual attack in a swanky New York hotel. As a result of the accusations, he lost his job as head of the IMF.
