Second woman accuses IMF chief of sexual assault
Summary from Los Angeles Times, May 16, 2011
A second woman has come forward alleging she was sexually assaulted by Dominique Strauss-Kahn (see WVoN story) the chief of the International Monetary Fund.
Strauss-Kahn is currently under arrest in New York accused of the attempted rape of a chambermaid in the penthouse suite of his hotel.
Now a lawyer for a French woman who accuses Strauss-Kahn of attacking her nine years ago says that she is going to file a legal complaint.
Lawyer David Koubbi says Tristane Banon did not make a complaint at the time because of pressures she felt and was dissuaded by her mother who is a regional Socialist official in France.
