IMF Chief, Strauss-Kahn's Alleged Sex Attack Victim Is African Woman From Guinea

The alleged sexual attack victim of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has been identified as an African immigrant from Guinea, a country once colonized by the French.

New York Police said the woman, 32, had already identified the suspect from a lineup that included five other men.

The alleged sexual attack at the Times Square Sofitel by a man with a formidable opportunity to be the next French president on the platform of the Socialist Party, is shifting focus to the sexual abuse of African women dating back to the colonial days.

But it is also ironically underscores years of failed economic policies championed by the IMF on the African continent, the very reason that increasing numbers of Africans have become vulnerable second class citizens in Western capitals, often exploited as sex slaves, maids and nannies by powerful capitalist oligarchs.  

Whereas most African families live on one dollar per day, Mr. Kahn was soaking in luxury in a lavish $3,000 per night hotel suite.  That amount alone, without even one French cigar, croissant or a shot of cognac added to the bill, equals the daily sustenance of 3,000 African families in Guinea today.

This is at a time that the IMF is continuing to force African governments to cut programs for the poor through Structural Adjustment Programs and other controversial economic policies such as devaluation of national currencies.

Meanwhile, Mr. Strauss-Khan is assembling an all-star defence team to be led by Benjamin Brafman, famously remembered as Michael Jackson's pre-eminent lawyer.   He appeared in a New York court today, but his lawyers said he would plead not guilty to charges of a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment. 

Also, in Paris, a female writer is reportedly considering a formal complaint against Mr. Strauss-Khan from a similar assault upon her in 2002.

Until he stepped out of the shower naked in his swanky hotel suite on Saturday and reportedly tried to rape the Guinean immigrant, Mr. Strauss-Kahn was the Socialist early favorite in next year’s French presidential race.  That ambition is now in tatters, as is his international power base at the IMF.

A New York judge has denied the IMF chief bail, the judge ordered on Monday that Mr. Strauss-Kahn be held in a New York jail without bail until the next adjourned court date.

Good info

Hello! cabkgkk interesting cabkgkk site!

American Karma

The man has a lot of power, money, influence, etc. He has prob. obtained everything he wants (including women). He met someone without a price tag and willing to say "no," a word he has prob. never heard. And, yes, race does have something to do with it. In my opinion, based on a wealth of research, in America there is a perception of inferiority when in comes to minority groups. There are many stereotypes categorizing minority groups as "less than." There is a governmental concept called "ethnic disadvantage." So, DSK probably felt (and still feels)since he is superior (race, wealth, and power) he has the right and a license to do whatever he wants with anyone but in particular minority groups.

All this is true but thank God for the internet, we now know what really happened 100, 200, 300, and 1000s of years ago, not the b.s. we are taught in school.

The world is changing at a very rapid rate. What goes up MUST come down. America is going to be a very different place in 2050.

Race and nationality have all

Race and nationality have all to do with it..the man has a penchant for taking what he wants..he rapes all women becuse he is a dirty man and a pwrson with diplomatic immunity? NOT! No sis u deal with it we do not have to..if woman do not fight back euros (and i am cuban) will take adv and continue..Race and nationality have everything to do with it..This is history from slavery get over it it was done all over the world to African women by colonizers which he is one..

rape

This may be easy to say for a euro woman who is often jealous of African women or any woman who is of color. Rape by the white man is synonomous with what he has been reared to do ..Take control because she is exiting and racy and sexy and hot..so he thinks..he has a right?..No woman who has worked for a hotel for as long as the VICTIM has would take a chance of being caaught on the floor having sex? When our women fight back the GOV constructs all kinds of character assassination in order to defend child euro pedophiles rapists etc..Even pres jefferson raped Sally hemings at 12 yrs old and made an entire 3-4th generation of the family..And amerikkka hold him up as a saint..Get real white men love my sisters and would toss the blond in the garbage if he thought she would,stay there

Racist!

If this was a black guy who did to a blond girl, all you racists would be crying for his head.

Now, this time it is the other around, it is like oh, black women are strong, how can he open his DICK with her mouth, and bullshit like that.

Stop your racist ideas, she is raped, and fucked in all holes, what do you say to y'all racist red-necks? It is time the pervert pays and pays for his crimes, it is high time really if you ask me....He did this perhaps many times and get away with this...

NO MORE!

DSK was Setup

I strongly believe he was setup. the story does not fit. How can you come out of the SHOWER and force someone to give you a BLOW JOB ???

1.) Do you know how hard it is to FORCE a persons mouth open with a DICK ???

2.) Why did not she BITE his DICK.

The fact that she BLEW the MAGA until he came means she did a good job and she was not forced.

Lastly African women are strong.....Simple this is a standard setup.

Bribed

Strauss will pay about a million dollar to the Woman's family in Guinea and she will drop the charges. He is back in politics in about a month. Have you ever seen a Kennedy being convicted of rape?
Strauss is richer than Kennedys.

There are many Dominique Strauss Kahn in India

Wolrld is crying for the case including India and its public.There are many Strauss Kahn in India.
The power,money,welath of Indian politicians,police and military guys and bureucrates of India are raping girls every day since 16th Aug 1947.
All of them are not booked for justice in India.
Why so much volume of crying of Indian poors?
India's rowdy democracy is permitting to scape the crime.

Setup! Setup!!

Setup! Setup!!

Innocent Until Prove Guilty

How do you know that she was raped? Who are you to judge someone? Where you present when she got raped? This shit is all a set up to have a powerful man character damage. But i bet you are aware of the term inoccent until proven guilty. And the truth will come out in the court of Law.

Strauss-Kahn

I sympathize with the lady in question but I think there is something not too right about the way the case is being handled. More like hitting a fly with a sledge hammer! No bail, put in a prison and section where prisoners with contagious diseases are isolated.....hmmm! Some persons want ton give him the ultimate disgrace and hope he contacts some untreatable disease! Justice should prevail, yes, but done fairly.

poor attempt

This is one of many incidents that could have happened in hotel rooms. What we know is the woman has not been raped. Thus, that is highly unlikely that the guys who behind this case can ever prove the charges against him. So it is aiming only the prominent political win by the Trausss Khann to prevent him going against bloody dominating countries. This is another candle poorly planned these countries.Why we not think of countries like libya where these countries mass killing civilians.

it is pathatic

what does Nationality have to do...

What does the victim nationality have to do with anything. I heard hotel maid I immediately thought Hispanic because most tend to be. I don't understand how this 1 incidents brings up talk of Colonization and slavery. A very powerful man has Allegedly raped a vulnerable woman. Deal with the incident.

dont take the money

Quote from article on yahoo news:

'In an apparent hint at the defense's strategy, his lawyer Benjamin Brafman told his arraignment hearing: "The evidence we believe will not be consistent with a forcible encounter." '

Seems to me they will be offering the victim money to coarse her to change her story to consensual affair.

Please don't take the money

OPC you are a big idiot to discredit poverty rating in Ngr

@OPC you are a big idiot to discredit poverty rating in Nigeria. Where did you go in Nigeria to be making your wild comment about Nigeria poverty?
Even in Lagos there are people who cannot eat one "real meal" a day. So many people cannot even see N100 in one day, everyday of the month, so stop your rubbish comment. If Ngr was so good why are you still in exile in Oyinbo land? Idiot you are one of those trying to benefit from the mess and chaos crippling Nigerians

Trash-Can

This is end of the road for a Trash-Can like the name sounds-Strauss-Khan.The old bastard must have been in this trade for decades, check out other reports. There may be many more about this Trash-Can.

Sorry to deceive but it is

Sorry to deceive but it is easier to make sleeping with big clients or whatsoever it it in sofitel than in Accra or Conakry
her name is oselie or oselia and could be found in facebook kind of woman sean combs or kanye west would like

GUINEAN- NOT GUINEA PIG

He mistook her Guinea for specimen. They use animals they call guinea pigs for experiment. Whether true or false, we will soon know the difference between a Guinean and Guinea pig.
Not only his immediate past should be investigated. Four generations of his should be investigated. If any of his fore fathers was involved in any criminality he should not be left.
Strauss Khan, should be reminded that slave trade had long ago been stopped.

Rubbish article

This is article is rubbish...the chap has a history with ladies and they were from different nationalities. IMF policy on Africa is driven by African leaders lack of economic knowledge (people go always wan cheat mumu).

Women

The Power of women!!!
U aint seen anything yet

Mr. Srauss-Kahn is not as

Mr. Srauss-Kahn is not as smart as his Nigerian Cohorts in the acts of Adultery and Fornication.May be he need to take a good lesson from the likes of Speaker Bankole to know how to go about it without becoming a scandal!!!

Ghanaian Immigrant assaulted!

Kindly rectify the error about the nationality of the lady reported to have been sexually assaulted by DSK.
She's an immigrant from GHANA not GUINEA!

Ghana...NOT Guinea

Kindly rectify the error about the nationality of the lady reported to have been sexually assaulted by DSK.
She's an immigrant from GHANA not GUINEA!

African Men Should Learn a Lesson

African men harrassing their househelps and office female staff sexually should learn from this great fall. Your wife is enough. Why going to jail for common woman 'TOTO'

Cut his things off

Some people are still going on about set up set up. What set up? This arrogant pervert thought he could get away with abusing an African lady.
Who knows how many women he's abused on his trips to Africa & the rest of the 3rd world and got away with it as the ladies won't want to make a fuss so they don't lose their jobs. These French bastards are so racist and arrogant.
Like Yorubas would say, 'Olorun lo mu'. Rapist bastard!!

HE COULD NOT CONTROL HIS 3RD LEG

I DONT CARE WHETHER HE IS A JEW, A BERBER, A KAZAKH OR AN ARAB.

HE HAS COMMITTED A GRAVE OFFENCE AND HE KNEW HE WAS GUILTY THAT IS THE REASON HE TRIED TO RUN OUT OF THE COUNTRY (HE WAS CAUGHT ON HIS WAY TO THE AIRPORT LEAVING MOST OF HIS PERSONAL BELONGINGS IN THE HOTEL)

HE HAS NOT ONLY LOST HIS REPUTATION AS A WORLD CLASS TECHNOCRAT, HE WILL LOSE HIS JOB AT THE IMF AND A CHANCE OF BECOMING A PRESIDENT..........THEN GOD WILLING HE WILL LOSE HIS FREEDOM FOR SOME TIME.

IF HE IS SO HUNG.......ASEWO NO DEY AROUND THERE?

Setup or not DSK done

The fact that this is a French hotel and the victim is a francophone African woman, makes this case very interesting at many levels. Those women in that hotel have got to be a ticking time bomb of potential law suits, especially in a city like New York. In france they can be obnoxious and get away with it because of their high position and the lowly rank of the Africans. Do not be surprised if Africans in France suffer reprisals for their sister bringing down their golden boy.
The other likelihood is a set up. If Sarkozy wants to finish him, America is the best place for that, because police are very public in taking people down. The same set up in Paris would not work, because DSK is very powerful and would have suppressed the whole thing. DSK thinks he is some god's gift to women with his wrinkled wetin call, and Sarkozy knows that any woman showing up in his hotel room offering to suck his wetin call, he will accept.

Cretins!

This is serious cretinous journalism!

What kind of cretin wrote this?

How does this "allegation" quickly take such cretin to start raising sexual exploitation during slavery? How does this link to IMF policy?

Never again am I donating to Sahara reporters!

Cretins!
