NEW YORK, The former managing director of the International Monetary Fund Dominique Strauss-Kahn filed a counterclaim for $1 million against the hotel maid who accused him of sexual assault, which cost his job and any chance to become president of France.

The New York police arrested Strauss-Kahn last year after the Diallo Nafissatou waitress accused him of forcing her to have oral sex and attempted rape in the luxury suite Sofitel Hotel in Manhattan.

The prosecution dropped the charges after not believing the story of Diallo.

The countersuit was filed Monday on the first anniversary of the incident and one day before Francois Hollande – Socialist who took over the coveted nomination of Strauss-Kahn – was inaugurated president of France.

Strauss-Kahn denied the allegations, arguing that the sexual encounter was consensual. Diallo sued Strauss-Kahn and told the High Court in the Bronx, where she lived at the time of the incident.

Gallic politician denies the allegations in the counterclaim and Diallo accused of “knowingly and intentionally make a story false to the law enforcement “. “Shortly after she entered the room, Mrs. Diallo and Mr. Strauss-Kahn held mutually consensual acts,” the lawsuit said. “There was no violence, force or coercion in their sexual encounter, and Miss Diallo suffered no injury,” he said.

Former IMF chief seeks damages for his arrest, including time in Rikers Island prison in New York and house arrest in a luxurious neighborhood of Manhattan, about losing his job as managing director in international organization and for damaging his reputation.

The counterclaim, which seeks at least $ 1 million in damages plus an unspecified amount in punitive damages cites statements to prosecutors about a witness Diallo proved unreliable after it came to the conclusion that she lied about her past and offered varying accounts of his behavior in the moments following the incident. One of the Diallo’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, described the lawsuit as a “desperate move”.

“A day that is a year of brutal sexual assault against señorira Diallo, this is another example that personifies the misogynistic attitude of Strauss- Kahn, “Wigdor said in a statement.

Strauss-Kahn has faced several legal problems since returning to France after the dismissal of the criminal case in New York. In March, the French authorities announced he was under formal investigation in connection with a prostitution ring in the northern city of Lille.

His lawyers in France have accused the authorities of harassing Strauss-Kahn and denied that his client has committed acts crime.

Lille, France- Strauss-Kahn Receives Prostitution-Related Charges

LILLE, France (AP) — Dominique Strauss-Kahn was handed preliminary charges Monday alleging he was involved in a French prostitution ring, his lawyer said. The former International Monetary Fund chief is denying wrongdoing. It was a stunning blow on the home front for Strauss-Kahn, a onetime French presidential hopeful whose sexual behavior has been in the international spotlight over the past year.

The French charges come two days before a New York court takes up a civil case in which a hotel maid accuses Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her.

In the northern French city of Lille on Monday, investigating judges summoned Strauss-Kahn for questioning and held him for about eight hours. Afterward, Strauss-Kahn left in black sedan without speaking publicly.

Lawyer Richard Malka told reporters afterward that Strauss-Kahn was given preliminary charges of “aggravated procurement in an organized gang.”

Strauss-Kahn was released under judicial supervision after paying €100,000 in bail, and was barred from contacting others charged in the case, a judicial official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is still underway.

Malka hotly contested the accusations. “Mr. Strauss-Kahn is finding himself, in large part because of his fame, thrown to the butchers,” Malka said.

“No one can understand the application of the concept of procuring (prostitutes) to his situation,” he said. “It is even less probable to apply the notion of an organized gang or network to describe simple libertine activity.”

Another Strauss-Kahn lawyer has acknowledged that the ex-IMF chief attended orgies but was unaware prostitutes were involved.

Under French law, preliminary charges mean authorities have reason to believe a crime was committed but allow more time for investigation.

The Lille judges’ questioning session had been scheduled for Wednesday — the day of the New York hearing — but was unexpectedly moved up.

Strauss-Kahn’s wife of two decades, renowned TV journalist Anne Sinclair, is now editor of the new French version of the Huffington Post website. The site carried a banner headline Monday night reading “PRELIMINARY CHARGES” over a photo of Strauss-Kahn.

Strauss-Kahn quit the IMF after the New York hotel maid said he sexually assaulted her in May. The criminal charges were later dropped, leading the woman to now pursue the civil case.
