This is a troubled time for the chief executive of the International Monetary Fund Dominique Strauss Kahn. He is to undergo forensic and scientific tests to disprove that he does not have an illicit love affair with a hotel maid. He is facing court action over the matter and he is prepared to go to any extent to prove his innocent. The court was temporary suspended to enable him go for the test which he conceded.
The IMF chief was arrested last weekend and had remained in jail over an allegation that he assaulted a 32 year worker at Sofitel hotel that is located in Manhattan. The victim who made a report to the police quickly identified kahn as the man that assaulted her. The hearing now commences on Monday. His lawyer Benjamin Brafman has said that his client is innocent of the crime and said that the IMF chief will defend himself.
The other lawyer for the Imf chief William Taylor also said that Kahn willingly consented to the scientific test as requested by the government. It would be recalled that the IMF boss was pulled from the Air France on his way to Germany to discuss with Angela Merkel and the European ministers on the debt problems.
