Lawyer: Maid Had No Idea Who IMF Chief Was

Tuesday, 17 May 2011 03:57 PM

 

NEW YORK (AP) — The lawyer for a hotel maid who accused IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual abuse says she feels "alone in the world" and is telling the truth.

Lawyer Jeffrey Shapiro says the maid is an immigrant from the West African nation of Guinea with a 15-year-old daughter. He says she had no idea who Strauss-Kahn was until a day or two after she was attacked on Saturday.

Shapiro says his client's story of being attacked by Strauss-Kahn in his Sofitel hotel suite is "consistent" because she is telling the truth.

The 62-year-old Strauss-Kahn is jailed in New York on charges including attempted rape after being denied bail on Monday. His attorney has said that he is innocent.

The maid has not been identified.
