Tape said to prove DSK maid is not after his money


“Diallo is no gold digger.” That is the message from the lawyer of the maid at the centre of the attempted rape case against former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Kenneth Thompson said it after reviewing tapes of a telephone call following her alleged attack.

Thompson believes a mis-translation of Nafissatou Diallo’s call led to claims that she knew Strauss-Kahn was wealthy and she would go after his money.

Diallo intends to hold a press conference later today to thank women groups for their support in her allegations of sexual assault against Strauss-Kahn.

He denies the charges and his lawyers have called for the case to be dropped after concerns about inconsistencies in Diallo’s evidence.
