Manhattan prosecutors will meet with the woman who accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault on the eve of a court appearance in which they are expected to announce whether they will proceed with the case, according to the New York Times.
Strauss-Kahn was the managing director of the International Monetary Fund and once a leading contender to be the next president of France.
The victim was notified by letter to attend the meeting. “My interpretation of that letter is that they’re going to announce that they’re dismissing the case entirely, or some of the charges,” said the lawyer, Kenneth P. Thompson, who is representing Nafissatou Diallo, the hotel housekeeper who accused Mr. Strauss-Kahn of trying to rape her when she went to clean his suite at the Sofitel New York in May and who would be the central witness against him at any trial, reported the Times.
