Ex-IMF Chief: Strauss-Kahn freed from house arrest!
Have you read, “Mayhem of the Miserables!” available @

JOHN ELIGON / The Hindu / NEW YORK, July 1, 2011.

The former IMF chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, along with his wife Anne Sinclair, leaves a court in New York on Friday.

He had been under house arrest in sexual assault case

The former chief of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was released from house arrest on Friday as the sexual assault case against him moved one step closer to dismissal after prosecutors told a Manhattan judge that they had serious problems with the case.

Prosecutors acknowledged that there were significant credibility issues with the hotel housekeeper who accused Mr. Strauss-Kahn of trying to rape her in May. In a brief hearing at the State Supreme Court in Manhattan, prosecutors did not oppose his release; the judge then freed Mr. Strauss-Kahn on his own recognisance.

The development represented a stunning reversal in a case that reshaped the French political landscape and sparked debate about morals, the treatment of women and the U.S. justice system.

While the case is still on he can be free to move around the courntry!
