New York – The Manhattan DA's Office will ask a judge to dismiss all charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn when he appears in court Tuesday, the New York Post reported Sunday.
Prosecutors are poised to file a Dismissal On Recommendation motion in court Tuesday, which will say the indictment against the former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt because of credibility problems with the sole witness in the case, Strauss-Kahn's hotel-maid accuser Nafissatou Diallo.
Prosecution sources said the motion, also called a Recommendation for Dismissal, will set out the facts of the case, possibly including a procedural chronology and details of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance's labor-intensive, four-month investigation into the strength of the evidence.
One source believes the dismissal motion will include never-before-revealed details attacking the credibility of accuser Diallo, in addition to details already revealed by prosecutors in a June 30 filing.
The motion will conclude that the indictment prosecutors won in May against Strauss-Kahn -- alleging that he forced Diallo to perform a sex act and attempted to rape her when she came to clean his luxury suite at the Sofitel hotel in Midtown -- cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
Most important, the motion will ask Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus, who has handled the matter since Strauss-Kahn's arraignment days after the arrest, to dismiss the indictment.
