Strauss-Kahn accuser lawyer questions DA`s motives

The lawyer says he finds Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance`s motivations "incomprehensible."

Paris: The lawyer for the woman who accused former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault says he finds Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance`s motivations "incomprehensible."

Douglas Wigdor has told Sunday`s French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche he suspects Vance will dismiss Sofitel hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo`s charges against Strauss-Kahn at a meeting next week.

"I wonder about (Vance`s) motivations," Wigdor is quoted as saying.

On Saturday, another Diallo attorney said the assistant district attorney offered to meet with his client on Monday, the day before Strauss-Kahn`s next scheduled court appearance.

Media reports quoted him as saying he thought prosecutors wouldn`t have asked for the meeting unless they planned to drop the charges.
