Dominique Strauss-Kahn and the maid accusing him of sex assault did have what appeared to be non-consensual sex, but the maid's history of lying means that charges cannot be pressed, New York prosecutors said on Monday.
DNA testing "established that several stains located on the upper portion of the complainant's hotel uniform dress contained semen that yielded the defendant's DNA," the Manhattan District Attorney's Office said.
Evidence was not definitive, but was "consistent with a non-consensual encounter," prosecutors said.
However, the assault case against Strauss-Kahn collapsed because the maid told repeated lies and "their cumulative effect would be devastating."
Strauss-Khan could return to politics
With these latest developments, Strauss-Kahn could in theory return to frontline French politics, but no-one expects a return in force.
Prosecutors asked the judge to dismiss all charges against Strauss-Kahn at a hearing on Tuesday, and he is expected to do so.
Few, even among the 62-year-old Socialist's most ardent admirers, expect him to resurrect his campaign to unseat Nicolas Sarkozy in presidential elections next year, but some still want him to play a role in the national debate.


Rest at,
