French woman won`t demand charges against ex-IMF chief
Paris: The lawyer for a French writer who alleged former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexually assaulted her eight years ago says she won`t file a criminal complaint against him for now.
David Koubbi told BFM TV on Friday that he and client Tristane Banon will decide later about filing a complaint because they "don`t want to be manipulated by the US justice system”.
Koubbi made headlines on Monday by saying he and Banon were "very seriously considering" a complaint against Strauss-Kahn after a New York hotel maid accused him of sexual assault - leading to his arrest last weekend.
On French TV in 2007, Banon said that during an interview years earlier, Strauss-Kahn had tried to forcibly strip her - and she wrestled with him. Koubbi said she didn`t file suit then because she felt "pressures”.
