DSK Soap Opera part 2
We look forward to this weekend’s conspiracy theories after Mr Kahn is released without Bail.
Bloomberg reports; Prosecutors agreed to release former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn on his own recognizance, two people familiar with the matter said.
Strauss-Kahn, accused of a sexual attack on a hotel maid in New York, will have his bail returned and would still be subject to travel restrictions while he faces charges, said the people, who didn’t want to be identified because they aren’t authorized to speak on the matter.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office plans to tell a New York state court judge today that its investigation raised doubts about the victim’s credibility, said a third person familiar with the matter. Prosecutors disclosed the information to Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers, the person said. At that 11:30 a.m. hearing before New York State Supreme CourtJustice Michael Obus, the bail issue is scheduled to be discussed.
“When the district attorney outlined the charges voted on by the grand jury, he said the office would continue to investigate the facts of this case, wherever they lead,” Erin Duggan, a spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., said in an e-mail today in response to questions about the handling of the case. “That is exactly what the office has done.”
