Paris would back IMF chief if he wants French jail
STAFF WRITER 1:6 HRS
Paris, May 22 (AFP) France would support any request from former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn to serve jail time back home if he is convicted in New York on sex assault charges, the interior minister said today.
Interior Minister Claude Gueant said he was not prejudging the outcome of the sensational court case, in which former presidential hopeful Strauss-Kahn is accused of a May 14 sex attack on a New York hotel chamber maid.
But if Strauss-Kahn is found guilty, and if he himself would rather serve time in a French jail than an American one, Paris would back any transfer request he made to the US authorities, Gueant told Europe 1 radio.
"The convicted party would have to agree and the two countries would have to agree, notably the country that carries out the conviction, which obviously is always very careful about receiving guarantees he would complete his term.
Two other employees of the Sofitel Hotel in New York told investigators that Strauss-Kahn made advances during his stay last weekend. Soon after he checked into his suite, he allegedly called the front desk and asked the receptionist to join him for a drink, according to a US news website.
That’s one horny commie.
I don’t get it....there are a thousand ad’s in the local newspapers for escorts. He could have easily called up someone....paid $300....and had 30 minutes of activity to make him happy before flying back to France.
I think it’s less the gratification itself than the feeling of impunity-I’m Kuhn, I can do anything I want and get away with it. Having never had (or wanted) that kind of power, I don’t really know, myself. French friends tell me that in France itself, this guy practically got away with murder.
In 2009, the radio satirist Stephane Guillon dedicated his morning comedy slot on France Inter to Strauss-Kahn's "obsession with females". Some commentators suggested his behaviour was a reflection of French culture. In 2000 French writers Vincent Giret and Véronique Le Billon wrote almost presciently in their biography of him: "There is only one thing this famous man has avoided a fall from grace."
SOCIALISM AND SEX CRAZED STRAUSS-KAHN Strauss-Kahn was expected to step down as head of the International Monetary Fund and announce his run for president and was expected to easily beat out Socialist contenders for the nom: Francois Hollande, Martine Aubry and Segolene Royal.
If Strauss Kahn does not run, incumbent Sarkozy would likely beat French Socialists candidates who are furiously squabbling among themselves.
Frances hardcore left is not happy with Strauss-Kahn (known to all as DSK). DSK is a millionaire who lives in a 4mn Paris penthouse with a 140,000 Porsche parked outside. He is known for wearing suits costing £22,000 (which he denies).
Strauss-Kahn is lambasted by leftists as a champagne Socialist and establishment fat cat.
Frances sullen anti-business, nti-globalisation left must decide whether it wants ideological purity or a candidate who can beat Sarkozy who, of course is praying every night that DSK wont run.
NOTE Dominique Strauss-Kahn was born on 25 April 1949 in the wealthy Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, Hauts-de-Seine. He is the son of Gilbert Strauss-Kahn, a legal and tax advisor and member of the Grand Orient de France, and Russian/Tunisian journalist Jacqueline Fellus. His family is of mixed Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jewish origin.
It's a never ending fascination to observe new words / concepts entering the public dialogue. Now, we have an "alternate" term for rape? I wonder why?
Strauss Kahn may claim "consent" (or that he was set up) to save his sorry ***...... but the facts beg to differ.
There IS lots of physical evidence---DNA under her fingernails when she scratched him, blood on the bed, a paper trail indicating he had flim-flammed the hotel into thinking he had left.
Luxe hotels handle $3000 a night guests with kid gloves. There's a protocol----the help does not freely enter rooms at will. Apparently maids are not allowed to enter rooms until they are specifically told the guest has departed.
The hotel first sends in a bellman to cart off dishes, empty bottles, and the like BEFORE the maids go in to clean.
The victim had been told by the bellman that the guest had left....and got the OK to enter the room. But when she walked in, DSK was apparently hiding in the bathroom and ran out to attack her when he heard her come in.
From what we now know, it looks like HE set her up for rape.
They hustled him off to Rikers despite a high paid lawyer's plea........b/c he's done this before and had been warned. As was posted above----everyone in Paris has known for years he had something of a problem. Not many female journalists are prepared to interview him alone.
Since when does a rapist who is onvicted in the United States get to choose where he serves his time.?
Another thing, if he were allowed to serve his time in France would the United State be billed for his stay, and would that stay be a $3,000 dollar a night room?
That can't be good.
In France these activities are looked at differently than in the US. In France, if a man shoots the guy in the sack with his wife——he gets no punishment-—considered justifiable homicide.
"Seduction," evidently, being one of those words that simply doesn't parse properly, from one language to the next. ;)
Heh——French for “seducer”———rapist.
Then again-—his wife believes him. No problem. ROTFL.
Using the Kahn 'cultural' formula, French doods should be pretty well extinct by now.
Two more hotel staff have come forward saying the former IMF chief propositioned them during his stay
He and his wife have until Tuesday to find more permanent housing after tenants of 'The Empire' apartment building have objected to his presence
Computer hacker Andrew Auernheimer claims to have bonded with him and said it was like being in 'The Breakfast Club'
Devoted wife Anne Sinclair has put up her Washington mansion as collateral for his bail
I vote for Attica. 20 years.
For that we need pictures.
Seems kinda... well... on the weird side, you ask me... but, what the heck:
One of Kahn's concubines. (Kahncubine? Dunno.)
I always thought he just took off his clothes and joined them.
Oh, wait, that's in L.A. or Boston.
He probably feels more like a true stud when he can convince a woman to join him, rather than just paying for it, as there is no emotions involved there. It is just a business arrangement.
As I understand it, the Sofitel Hotel in New York, which evidently caters to the wealthy international set, is French owned. French Intelligence would be pretty remiss not to have the place thoroughly bugged, so they must have a pretty good idea of what really happened. Its quite possible that a small group of high-ranking bureaucrats in the DGSE, knowing this guys proclivities and for their own reasons, set him up.
Couldnt have happened to anyone more deserving.
Between the child rapist Roman Polanski free in France and the PanAm 103 mass murderer free in Libya I don't think we're in the mood to let others jail our criminals.
