While the New York District Attorney has been considering dropping the case since early this month, the alleged victim of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's sexual assault attempt is not shutting up. The hotel maid who has accused the former International Monetary Fund attacking her in a New York City hotel room has broken her public silence in an interview with ABC News.
"'I want justice. I want him to go to jail,' Nafissatou Diallo told ABC's Robin Roberts in an interview to air Monday on 'Good Morning America,''World News with Diane Sawyer' and 'Nightline.' 'I want him to know that there is some places you cannot use your money, you cannot use your power when you do something like this.'"
Strauss-Kahn may not go to jail. Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance is considering whether to drop the charges amid "concerns" he has said he has about Diallo's credibility."
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, Strauss-Kahn lost his job as head of the IMF. Diallo's accusations upended the politics of France and the workings of one of the world's most prominent banking institutions. However as investigators learned more, the alleged victim's credibility came into serious question, and Strauss-Kahn may now avoid jail.
"'God is my witness I'm telling the truth. From my heart. God Knows that. And he knows that,'" she said.
Defense attorneys for Strauss-Kahn say that everything that happened in the room was consensual, and deny any criminal wrongdoing. Diallo's full interview will air on ABC tomorrow.
