Holes Emerge in Case Against Former IMF Chief

The New York Times reports that the sexual assault case against former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is "on the verge of collapse as investigators have uncovered major holes in the credibility of the housekeeper who charged that he attacked her."

"Although forensic tests found unambiguous evidence of a sexual encounter between Mr. Strauss-Kahn, a French politician, and the woman, prosecutors do not believe much of what the accuser has told them about the circumstances or about herself... Senior prosecutors met with lawyers for Mr. Strauss-Kahn on Thursday and provided details about their findings, and the parties are discussing whether to dismiss the felony charges."

Strauss-Kahn resigned from the IMF amid international criticism after his arrest. It was also widely speculated that he had intended to challenge French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
